The Bottom Line With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out. The $249 Samsung Chromebook is a good extra computer for cloud-loving Google-centric Web users.
