Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi
REVIEW

Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi ( Signature Edition)

This good-looking fanless hybrid works as a slim Windows tablet or an ultra-portable laptop, but still suffers from the same awkward marriage of base and screen as many hybrids.

Dell XPS 13 Touch
REVIEW

Dell XPS 13 Touch ( Core i7, 8GB, 256GB)

This new Dell XPS 13 is the first great laptop of 2015, but it owes that title more to a smart design revamp than Intel's new processors.

HP Stream Notebook
REVIEW

HP Stream Notebook ( 11.6-inch, magenta)

The HP Stream 11 aims to be a cloud-focused laptop, much like a Chromebook, but with the added utility of Windows 8. It's a rock-bottom budget laptop, so don't get your hopes up, but the battery life is impressive.

Lenovo N20p   Chrome Laptop
REVIEW

Lenovo N20p Chrome Laptop ( 2.16GHz 1333MHz 1MB)

Lenovo's N20p is a long-lasting touchscreen Chromebook with a design on the sharper side of budget, but its semi-hybrid hinge feels like a half measure.

REVIEW

Lenovo ThinkPad 11e ( Chrome, non-touch)

The education-aimed Yoga 11e Chromebook bends into several useful hybrid shapes, but it's also too thick and rugged for commuters who want lightweight hardware for their lightweight operating system.

Digital Storm Krypton
REVIEW

Digital Storm Krypton

The bulky, dated body of the Digital Storm Krypton doesn't feel particularly high-end, but it's great at running games at high detail settings, and can be configured to provide excellent bang for your buck.

REVIEW

Dell Inspiron 14 5000

For those in need of an inexpensive thin-and-light laptop for home or school (but not necessarily the thinnest or lightest), the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series is worth putting on your list despite its imperfections.

Chromebook 13
REVIEW

Chromebook 13 ( CB5-311-T677)

One of the nicer-looking and better-performing Chrome OS systems, the 13-inch Acer Chromebook adds some zip by ditching Intel for an Nvidia processor, but also hits a few issues with popular Chrome apps.

REVIEW

Origin PC Eon17-S ( 2014)

The big-screen Origin PC Eon17-S gaming laptop won't win any design contests, and isn't particularly portable, but our high-end config was great where it counted -- running new games at high detail settings.

HP's Pavilion x360 adds Beats Audio (for now) and rugged construction to the expanding field of 11-inch Yoga-likes, but Lenovo's version feels much more upscale.

Razer Blade 14 Inch Touchscreen Gaming Laptop 512GB

Razer’s newest gaming laptop trades ultralong battery life for a fantastic screen and even better graphics. It’s a trade worth making: this is the best Razer gaming laptop, and the best thin gaming PC anywhere.
