For the first time, you can now buy an ultra-light MacBook that also has a Retina Display. Maybe you're torn between that slim and sexy new MacBook
and the company's bigger workhorse, the Retina MacBook Pro

With the first round of 2015 flagship phones hitting store shelves, we thought this would be a good time to revisit our Smartphone Comparison Guide. Join us as we run down the features and specs of some of the top phones you can buy today.
