Top 5 laptops with the best battery lifeEvery laptop on this list lasts for more than 11 hours before needing to be charged again.
These are the top 5 laptops with the best battery life what are we waiting for let's get to it. At number five it's a 2016 Macbook Pro the 13 inch model without the old ledge touch bar cropped in at 11 hours 36 minutes. It's thin and it starts around $1,300. If you pick this model, just remember it's got two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, so you might need to get some accessories to have it work with any other equipment you may have lying around. Number four is the Microsoft Surface Book at 11 hours and 49 minutes. This is the second generation of the Surface Book from 2016. Unlike any of the other laptops on this list, this is the only one where you can take off the monitor and use it as a tablet. It's pretty pricy though starting at around $2,400. Coming in at number three is the Lenovo Think Pad x1 Carbon with 11 hours and 50 minutes, that's right, it's just one minute better than number four. But that's the way the cookie crumbles. Think Pad x1's body is made out of carbon fibers, so it's pretty light at 2.6 pounds. At number 2 is a Samsung Notebook 9 with 12 hours and 16 minutes. For a 15 inch laptop, it's surprisingly light, at 2.64 pounds. And the Notebook 9 has a spill-resistant keyboard and good track pad, which is really important since there is no touchscreen option. For this laptop. And at number one is the Acer Chromebook R13. The R13 survived for 13 hours and two minutes. Yep, its a Chromebook which means its not as full featured as a Mac or a Windows PC, however, for a lot of people who just want to do web based activities, the Chromebook R13 is a safe bet. The MSRP is around $400, although you can find it online for less. If you don't wanna consider a Chromebook as number one, the new number five, would be the HP Elitebook X360. That's the 13 inch, 2017 model. It has an 11 hour and 34 minute battery life, just two minutes behind the Macbook Pro. If you're dead set against a Chromebook and a Macbook, then the LG Gram 13, makes the list with 11 and a half hours. We've got a lot more info at CNET.com. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online.
