The Top 5 Laptops

Although smartphones have been all the rage in terms of portable technology, we should never forget that laptops are still enjoying a massive presence within the modern community.  Let’s take a quick look at the top five models as well as what each has to offer. 

The Dell XPS 13

Often rated as the best overall laptop, the XPS 13 has brought 4K resolution into play while adding the Whiskey Lake processor in order to provide the user with even more power than ever before.  What is perhaps even more impressive involves the fact that the XPS 13 is one of the most lightweight models on the market; ideal if you will be taking it from place to place.

The Acer Aspire 5

Acer has also brought their A-game to the table with the introduction of the Aspire 5.  Thanks in part to a Core i3 processor, you can expect nothing less than top-notch performance even when running memory-laden programs.  Its 1080p display is likewise quite impressive alongside a superior battery life, so Acer has definitely improved upon past models. 

The Apple MacBook Pro

This year’s MacBook Pro is equipped with a 13-inch display screen, so viewing your favourite media content will not present an issue.  As we should have already expected from this seasoned product line, the MacBook Pro is built to last.  While somewhat heavier than the models we previously examined, this is an easy trade-off in terms of performance, battery life and overall appearance.  UP to ten hours of continuous battery life and the well-known touch bar round out one of the best MacBook iterations to date.  We should also mention that the price of this model has dropped slightly; perhaps in a bid to remain more competitive within an increasing challenging marketplace. 

The Asus Chromebook C434

ASUS Flip C434TA 14″

This is arguably the best convertible laptop on the market today and while the touchpad has been called overly sensitive by some users, this is only a small drawback when compared to its features.  An ultra-sleek and thin design, nearly invisible bezels and a 14-inch touchscreen are not to be overlooked.  A Core m3 processor will likewise deliver speed and power when they are needed the most. 

The HP Envy 13t

This could be a great laptop for personal use or if you happen to be heading off to university.  While relatively inexpensive, it has not fallen short in regards to its numerous features.  An aluminium chassis, a durable keyboard and a long battery life all help to ensure that few issues will be encountered while out and about.  A solid GPU backs up these attributes, so the Envy could be a great and highly economical option to keep in mind.

As always, please feel free to research each of these models in detail if you would like to learn more about what they have to offer.
