What are the best laptops to buy?
It depends on what you’re looking for. While the MacBook Air ($899) was our top choice for best overall laptop, we’ve also ranked laptops from HP and ASUS as top-of-the-line. We can also recommend a variety of Chromebooks, with our pick for the best choices from Lenovo, Acer and Google.
If you’re on a budget, the Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook is down to $324 right now at Amazon—a $105.99 markdown. We’re fans of its stellar build quality, which rivals that of laptops twice its price and snappy performance. Its battery life can be middling, but it’s still an excellent value.
If you’ve got a student to shop for who’s also a Windows fan, the HP Spectre x360 laptop, down from $1,099.99 to just $839.99 at HP, is a great gift this holiday season. As one of our favorite laptops for students, the Spectre impressed us with its nine-hour battery life and wide screen. Though not as fast as the latest Macbooks, the Spectre still offers speedy performance for office work, light video editing and even gaming.
