For a long time, Apple has dominated the design-minded laptop sphere. When you think resale value, a solid chassis, and polish—you think MacBook. However, Samsung caught wise to the appeal of great design.

The internal specs are a bit light, but much of that is masked by the physical form of the laptop.
