CNET Top 5
Top 5 laptops with the best battery lifeEvery notebook on this list can survive a normal eight-hour workday and then some.
These are the top five laptops with the best battery life. I'm a big fan of current laptops, they're thinner, faster and lighter than in years past. Best of all, laptops last so much longer than they used to. Every laptop on this list can survive a standard eight hour work day, so let's get to it And number 5 the LG gram. The 13 inch 2017 model of the LG gram survived 11 hours and 30 minutes on a single charge. It weighs about 2 pounds and uses a nano carbon magnesium material for it's body. One add well thing about the gram might be its placement of the webcam on the bottom hinge. For potentially less than flattering shots. And number four is the HP Elitebook X360. This laptop lasts 11 hours and 34 minutes in our test. The HP Elitebook X360 weighs under three pounds. It also had a 360 degree hinge. And since it's a business laptop it has lots of ports like USB A, USB C and HDM [UNKNOWN]. And number three, the Apple Macbook Pro. Now which Macbook pro is this? This is a 13 inch model introduced to 2015 and without a touch bar If you get that configuration you will see a battery life of 11 hours and 36 minutes, you'll get two usb c ports and something called the headphone jack and number two is a Microsoft surface book this is a model from 2016 with the. Performance based. It clocked in 11 hours and 49 minutes before needing another charge. Plus, this is a two in one that detaches for a full tablet mode. There's also a stylus mode for all of us who like writing and sketching without using a track pad. And the champion of all laptops when it comes to battery life is The Acer Chromebook R13. This is a two-in-one Chromebook with a 360 degree hinge that lets you use it as a tablet. It's got an aluminum lid so it's got a premium feel with a retail price of around $400. And that battery life, the Acer Chromebook R13 lasts for 13 hours and two minutes. As if thinking I'm not buying a Chrome book. What changes on this list, if you get rid of that Chrome book, then the new number five will be the non-touch screen 13 inch version of the Dell XPS from 2016. It's got ten hours and 36 minutes of up time. To find out even more options, check out cnet.com. I'm Maya Azaktar and I'll see you on Monday. [BLANK_AUDIO]
