The Hisense Chromebook offers just enough power and comfort for far less money than the competition.

REVIEW

Acer Aspire V Nitro 7-791G-7984

A thinner, lighter gaming laptop, the Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition satisfies with an excellent screen and performance and understated good looks.

Dell XPS 13 Non-touch
REVIEW

Dell XPS 13 Non-touch ( 2015)

Taking a second look at the new XPS 13, this lower-end version costs less and has better battery life, but isn't as tightly designed.

Dell XPS 13 Touch
REVIEW

Dell XPS 13 Touch ( Core i5, 8GB, 128GB)

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.

REVIEW

Toshiba Chromebook 2

If you're looking for an all-around solid Chrome OS experience -- with one of the best screens we've seen on a Chromebook -- the Toshiba Chromebook 2 should be your starting point.

Lenovo N20p   Chrome Laptop
REVIEW

Lenovo N20p Chrome Laptop ( 1.83GHz 1333MHz 2MB)

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad 11e
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.

Dell Inspiron 14 5000
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.

Origin PC Eon17-S
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.

Lenovo Yoga 2 11
REVIEW

Lenovo Yoga 2 11 (MultiTouch, 2.42GHz 1333MHz 2MB)

Lenovo's Yoga 2 11 combines the popular Yoga hybrid design with an affordable 11-inch ultraportable for a system that's budget-feeling but sturdy, and one of the best of a new breed of low-cost hybrids.

Lenovo Yoga 2 13
REVIEW

Lenovo Yoga 2 13 ( Core i5 1.60GHz, black)

If you can't quite afford the Yoga 2 Pro but still want a full-time laptop and a part-time tablet, the 13-inch Lenovo Yoga 2 is an excellent choice.

Maingear Pulse 14
REVIEW

Maingear Pulse 14 ( 2014)

You could spend an additional $1,000 and get a superslim 14-inch gaming laptop that would be the envy of your friends, but the Maingear Pulse 14 is just portable enough and has decent specs for the price.

Dell Inspiron 14 7000
REVIEW

Dell Inspiron 14 7000

While the entry model is less of a bargain than it used to be and configurations are limited, the thin, aluminum-clad Dell Inspiron 14 7000 remains an attractive option for its looks, performance, and price.

Razer Blade 14 RZ09-0116
REVIEW

Razer Blade 14 RZ09-0116 ( 2014)

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.

Acer Aspire E1-472G-6844
REVIEW

Acer Aspire E1-472G-6844

Acer's variation on the budget E1-472G Aspire laptop has good guts but an underwhelming exterior and design, and also lacks a touch screen. Nvidia graphics add a boost.

MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003
REVIEW

MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003

The MSI GE60 combines one of Nvidia's new 800-series GPUs and other high-end components, in a gaming rig that's not the desk-hogging backbreaker some others are.

ASUS ROG G750JZ-XS72
REVIEW

ASUS ROG G750JZ-XS72

The Asus line of gaming laptops has always offered excellent high-end configurations, along with custom software and hardware tweaks. This latest version of the G750 bets on Nvidia's brand-new line of GPUs, and includes the current top-end card for great gaming performance.

HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2
REVIEW

HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2

A rare larger-screen hybrid, the HP Spectre x2 aims to be both a portable laptop and a video-friendly slate. The price is right, but the design feels awkward and the wonky touch pad makes it hard to use as a full-time laptop.
