The Best Overall
The Dell’s XPS 13 sports a decent look which blends a metallic outside and white and woven fiberglass inside. However, this laptop feels premium but so enticing that you will be desiring to display to everyone who’s pleased to look at. Nevertheless, the InfinityEdge frame design of this laptop that is super-thin is another great feature.
Though many laptops out there have replicated it, Dell’s XPS 13 (2018) is the first-ever and best laptop that featured it. It is as useful as it’s appealing, making the system’s overall footprint lighter and smaller.
Is this laptop too small? No. Actually, similar to its rivals it features a large touchpad, while its keyboard is very easy to use. In addition, it is also an efficient energy laptop thanks to its decent battery capacity. Meaning to say, you can use it for one day without charging. Plus, it can handle everything you thrust at it.
The only thing that we didn’t like about this laptop is the webcam. Since the bezels were very thin, there is actually no space for it. Thus, it is under the display instead of above. Also, it styles for quite a stiff angle.
Moreover, two models we’ve tested, which is the i5 as well as i7 versions, that starts at 1,000USD and 1,350USD respectively. Both of these feature an 8th-generation processor. in company with an option of durable state drives as well as16GB RAM. Also, if you’re planning to go for a cheaper model no worries because Dell also offers an i3 version that starts at 900USD.
The Best Cheap/Budget Laptop
If ever you do not want to purchase a laptop’s full price such as Dell XPS 13. Then a highly recommended from us is the ZenBook 13 from ASUS.
ASUS ZenBook 13 is an ultrabook which comes in 800USD price tag. Indeed, most models in this price tag snip important aspects like the display quality or the battery capacity, whilst this ZenBook 13 has had it all. Though it is not as great as the XPS 13, it keeps things light and thin without even sacrificing build quality.
The value of your money here is accurately impressive. This model comes with an eight-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, as well as a solid-state drive with 25GB capacity. Surprisingly, it is double the memory of the 900USD range XPS 13.
The Best MacBook
There is no doubt that Apple’s products are such a beautiful one, however, it has some controversial features like the downright miscue or the inaccurate keyboard and touch bar. For this reason, we’re advising you to go for non-touch bar versions.
Since Apple introduced its MacBook Pro (2018) which highlights the inclusion of six core eight-generation CPUs and newest quad-core, things became more complicated.
Here is the problem. The MacBook Pro 13 (no touchpad) is the only one that was designated to an old processor. It means, the company is staying with the 7th-gen Intel Core processor for their entry-level versions. In fact, even the quad-core variants didn’t offer a real step-up in terms of performance.
The Best Large Display Laptop
Of course, the Dell XPS 13 is great, but if you want one in a larger display, look no further than the XPS 15. It is great for all the same reason as the XPS 13 model. And because it is larger, it can be an option with the fastest hardware that is available this time. Comes with a blazing six-core eight-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor, and an excellent display. As well as Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics, and a massive battery life. Happily, it is the best all-around 15-inch laptop that is available on the market these days.
In the same token, the XPS 15 was recently refreshed with the fastest eighth-generation processors, as well as with a more powerful GTX 1050 Ti in the higher-end configurations. These new features make the XPS 15 an even better value.
The Best Laptop for Gaming
From the external part, you may possibly not think that the Razer Blade is a decent laptop for gaming. It is as thin and light as the Apple’s MacBook Pro. This laptop features thin bezels, vivid and bright 15″ display, as well as world-class touchpad and keyboard.
However, if the Razer Blade was not a device for gaming, one thing is for sure, it will be hailed as one of the best 15″ laptops. The fact that this laptop is capable of playing games at decent frame rates makes it somewhat miraculous.
With a supremely great processor and graphics card (GTX 1070 Max-Q), this gaming laptop allows you to work easily and more rapidly
Razer, on the other hand, improved the thermal system in order to make sure that regardless of some restraining; it still can play almost any game while the settings are at max.
Actually, this model is one of the most beautiful and elegant gaming laptops you could ever see. Thus, the Alienware 175 or Acer’s Predator Helios 500 may perform better, though, this one is the best choice of all time.
