Best Laptop 2017: 10 of the best laptops right now

by

Your complete guide to the best laptops you can buy right now, from budget netbooks under £200 up to Ultrabooks and gaming laptops at over £1,000. We have our top picks for each category, as well as alternative options for you to choose from.

How much should I spend on a laptop?

This age-old question must be answered by another question: how are you going to use it? You can buy a cheap 11-inch netbook or Chromebook for under £200 if you just browse the web and do a few emails.

Want something a little bigger? You can pay between £300 and £400 for a 15.6-inch laptop powered by an Intel Core i3 processor that’s powerful enough to do the basics without slowing to a crawl, and will even handle a little Minecraft and photo editing.

If you want something thin and light, expect to spend upwards of £500 for a sub-1.5kg laptop. Powered by efficient dual-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, these machines are suitable for light photo and video work and should last all day on a single charge if you don’t push them too hard. If you want premium build and a great screen, don't expect to pay less than £1,000.

You’ll need to spend at least £700 on a gaming laptop, and considerably more if you want to future-proof it. Look for “discrete” or “dedicated” graphics from AMD or Nvidia, and check online benchmarking figures to see how well your favourite games will play.

There are alternative form factors, too. 2-in-1s have reversible screens that can be versatile in small spaces, while tablet hybrids are great for drawing and taking notes and often come with attachable keyboards for when you want to get typing work done.

What’s the best operating system?

Windows 10 remains the most versatile operating system around, and you’ll find it on the vast majority of laptop sold in the UK. However, if you’re buying a cheap laptop, Google’s ChromeOS is probably a better bet. It’s more lightweight – it’s essentially a glorified web browser – but with so many excellent web-based applications now available, most people on a budget can get by with just that.

MacOS is tied into MacBook laptops, so you’ll always pay a premium to get Apple’s operating system. It’s undeniably slick, smooth and reliable, so if you have the money, it offers a better experience than Windows for many people.

Don’t want to pay the Windows tax? Some laptops now sell with Ubuntu Linux installed. This free OS is powerful if you know what you’re doing, and it has the advantage of costing next to nothing.

Lenovo Ideapad 710S 13ISK
Key features:
  • 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080-pixel IPS display
  • Intel Core i7-6560U (i5 available)
  • 8GB RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD
  • Intel Iris Graphics 540
  • Weight: 1.1kg
  • Windows 10
  • Tested Battery Life: Around 8 hours

The best laptop for most people


Why buy? The Lenovo Ideapad 710S is the best laptop for most people because it’s thin, light and powerful enough to do most things. The version we tested cost £900, but it’s available for as little as £700 with a Core i5 processor.

This is a quick laptop for photo- and video-editing tasks, and while it won’t match the performance of a quad-core machine such as the Dell XPS 15 for out-and-out power, it’s still fast enough for almost everything you’ll want to do on it.

It’s really light, too, at 1.1kg, so it’ll go into any bag without much fuss. The Full HD screen is brilliant for the price as well.

And why not? Battery life doesn’t match the likes of the Dell XPS 13 or MacBook Air, and the touchpad could be better.

Edward says: “This was arguably the best-value laptop we reviewed in 2016. Lenovo has hit a great sweet spot with the 710S. It’s also worth considering the Asus ZenBook UX303UA, which is a fabulously light laptop with equally good performance for £700, although it lacks the build quality of the IdeaPad.”

Acer Swift 5
Key features:
  • 14-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel IPS display
  • Intel Core i5-7200U
  • 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
  • Intel HD Graphics 620
  • Weight: 1.36kg
  • Windows 10
  • Tested Battery Life: Around 9 hours

Also Consider: A larger Lenovo alternative


Why buy? The 14-inch Acer Swift 5 is a great option if you want a larger screen without adding too much weight. It weighs 1.36kg, which is light for the size.

There’s also a fingerprint scanner, which is great for logging into Windows 10 with just the touch of your finger. The screen is bright and colourful, and battery life is excellent and will happily go all day if you don’t push it too hard.

It has a similar spec to the Lenovo, so will perform just as well in day-to-day tasks.

And why not? It's not as well built as some rivals, so might not survive too many bumps and scrapes.

Edward Says: “The Swift 5 is a really nice mix of low price and attractive build, and performance is more than good enough for most people. It’s hard to find anywhere aside from Acer’s online store, and it deserves to be seen by more people.”

The best 13-inch laptop


Why buy?
The Dell XPS 13 is the no-compromise option. We think it’s the best thin-and-light laptop you can buy right now. A great design, stunning screen and fantastic performance make this the ideal alternative to a MacBook Pro.

There are loads of different storage and processor options – our review model was perhaps the best value, but you can spend quite a lot less if you don’t need raw power or loads of storage.

Most importantly, it’s more powerful yet cheaper than the rival MacBook Pro, which is a great combination. If you’re a Windows fan, or wavering Apple one, this is the laptop for you.

And why not? It lacks the wow factor and 100% faultless build quality of the latest MacBook Pros. Oh, and the webcam looks up your nose.

Michael says: “Year after year, the XPS 13 sets the benchmark for high-end Windows Ultrabooks, and it did so again in 2016. I think this is the last year Dell will get away with this design, though – in 2018 the company will need to refresh it a little. A fantastic thin-and-light alternative is the Asus ZenBook 3, which is well worth a look.”

Colourful and cheap 11-inch Windows laptop

Key features:
  • 11.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 display
  • Free Office 365 Personal subscription
  • Excellent speakers and battery life
The HP Stream 11 is an extraordinarily cheap Windows 8.1 laptop. It costs less than £200, and comes bundled with a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal that’s worth £60. In short, it’s perfect for students and families on a tight budget.
 
It’s good-looking too, and small and light enough to comfortably carry around in any standard messenger bag. The screen is an average 11.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 affair, but it gets the job done and is complemented by an excellent keyboard and loud, clear speakers. The HD webcam is also more than good enough for Skype calls.
 
A 2.16GHz Intel Celeron N2840 processor, combined with 2GB of RAM, keeps the Stream going, and it’s powerful enough to cope with light tasks, such as web browsing, word processing and HD video. The battery is great too, and can keep going for around six hours under heavy strain.

At time of review the HP Stream 11 was available for £179.99 / $199.99.

Asus Chromebook C201

One of the lightest budget laptops you can buy

Key features:

  • Weight: 980g
  • 12-hours normal use battery life
  • 11.6in display

Asus' Chromebook offering is fairly limited, but its C201 is one of the finest budget examples on the market. It doesn't fall into the traps that many other Chromebooks do and actually offers attractive and robust-feeling hardware, which is exactly what you want on a laptop that'll be chucked into bags and slammed onto desks all day long.

It has limitations: the screen isn't brilliant and the processor isn't powerful, but it more than makes up for it with superb battery life and an exceptionally portable weight of just 980g.

You'll have to get used to Chrome OS and Google's suite of cloud-based applications, but this is nowhere near as difficult as it used to be. If you can use a web browser, you can use Chrome OS.

Acer Chromebook 14
Key features:
  • 14-inch HD or Full HD screen
  • 2GB of 4GB RAM
  • Thin and light design

If you're after something a little bigger than the Asus Chromebook C201, look no further than the Acer Chromebook 14. With a 14-inch screen and spacious keyboard, you'll have loads of room to manoeuvre without having to break the bank. It's light, too, at under 1.6kg.

This Chromebook comes in two flavours: one with a 1,366 x 768-pixel screen and 2GB of RAM, and the other a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel screen and 4GB of RAM. We tested the cheaper model, which offers good value, but we'd recommend the more expensive model if you can afford it – mostly for the extra memory, but also for its much better screen.

The battery will easily last you a full day of work if you keep your usage modest, and performance is adequate if you don't open too many browser tabs at the same time.

It's not a powerhouse, but for under £200 it's a great deal all the same.

HP Pavilion 15-au072sa
Key features:
  • 15.6-inch HD screen
  • Dual Core Intel Core i3 processor
  • 8GB memory and 1TB hard disk

It may not have blown us away in our review, but the HP Pavilion 15 is still a perfectly fine laptop for the vast majority of people with modest needs. Its basic specification and large screen make it decent value, although you'll have to accept some limitations.

The dual-core Intel Core i3 processor is good, and you get 8GB of memory, which is a decent specification. Our only performance complaint is that it comes with a relatively slow 1TB hard disk, but if you're upgrading from an older budget laptop, this will feel like a miracle in comparison.

The 15.6-inch screen is nice and big, although we found viewing angles to be a little sub-par. It's worth checking this in-store so you can see whether it will bother you.

Battery life is excellent at nearly seven hours, which is very handy indeed. Weighing in at over 2kg, it's not something you'll want to carry everywhere, but it'll be just fine living at home.

Not a miracle machine, but the whole Pavilion 15 range represents reasonable value for those on a budget.

At the time of review the HP Pavilion 15-au072sa was available for £400.

New MacBook 9

Ultra-thin and light 12-inch laptop

Key features:
  • 12-inch, 2,304 x 1,440 display
  • Force Touch trackpad
  • New "butterfly" keys
The 12-inch MacBook is up there with the Dell XPS 13 as one of the best-looking laptops on the market. It’s ludicrously thin and light, coming in at just 13.1mm thick and 923g, clad in aluminium, and comes in grey, silver and gold colour schemes. Annoyingly, Apple’s got rid of all ports apart from the headphone jack and a new USB-C connection, which means you’ll have to buy an adaptor if you want to charge the MacBook and use a USB drive at the same time.
 
The 12-inch, 2,304 x 1,440 ‘Retina’ display is sharp and vivid, and surrounded by impressively thin bezels. This means that, despite the upgrade in screen size, the new MacBook uses the same-sized frame as the 11-inch MacBook Air.
 
Instead of the traditional “scissor” motion, the MacBook’s keys use what Apple calls a “butterfly” motion. This means the buttons offer less travel than before, which takes some getting used to. They’re also rather noisy. The keyboard itself runs from edge to edge, and the keys are large and individually backlit. More striking still is the new Force Touch trackpad, which doesn’t move, but uses haptic feedback to imitate motion. It also behaves differently depending on how much pressure you push down with, and we love it.  
 
Unfortunately, power and speed has been downgraded. The Intel Core M processor inside delivers similar performance to a MacBook Air of three or four years ago. Battery life stands at the nine-hour mark, which should still get you through most of the day.

Powerful 13-inch laptop with an innovative trackpad

Key features:
  • 13-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 IPS display
  • Excellent Force Touch trackpad
  • Lovely screen
  • Zippy performance
Undoubtedly one of the best laptops available, the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2015 is a brilliant machine. Though it follows the same design blueprint as previous models, it still looks fresh, while the aluminium unibody is tough, as well as attractive.
 
The Force Touch trackpad replaces the standard click mechanism with four force sensors and an electromagnet, which detect how strongly you press down. For example, you can zoom quickly or slowly through videos by adjusting your finger pressure. Meanwhile, Force Clicking on a word brings up a dictionary definition, while clicking on a link or address will bring up a preview window of the page or a map. It’s both great to use and mesmerising.
 
Its 13.3-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 IPS screen is exceptional too, offering accurate, punchy colours and deep blacks. The 2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor powering the entry-level model delivers super-slick performance.  Anyone who tackles lots of video and photo editing will enjoy the extra clout on offer here, and it’s tough enough for light gaming too.

New MacBook Pros have now launched at a much higher price than the 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro. These are worth considering before going for the cheaper model, and you can take a look at our 2016 MacBook Pro review for more information. The only problem now is actually finding one for under £1,000. 2015 models are slowly disappearing from the market, but if you can find one you're sure to grab a bargain.

Key features:
  • 13.3-inch 2,560 x 1,440-pixel Retina display
  • Intel Core i5 and i7 Skylake processors
  • 1.37kg
  • Innovative Touch Bar

The 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro shares a place on this list with the 2015 edition because the two offer a different experience. Last year's model certainly offers better value than this year's non-Touch Bar model, but this new top-end option is an entirely different beast.

The Touch Bar is the headline feature, but it's certainly not the reason to buy one. Try instead the faultless build quality, light 1.37kg weight and excellent performance. The Intel Core i5 processor in this machine can go toe to toe with the Core i7 in the Dell XPS 13, and you get Intel Iris Graphics as well – something Dell doesn't supply.

The screen is the best we've ever seen on a laptop, with incredible maximum brightness and huge colour coverage. It's a professional photographer's dream.

The Touch Bar has the potential to be a key selling point, but that'll only happen when more apps support it. Read our full review for more detail on the Touch Bar.

It might not look like great value, but this is the closest anybody has come to technical perfection in 2016.

Dell XPS 15

Stunning design from a powerful Windows machine

Key features

  • Intel Core i5-6300HQ processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics
  • InfinityEdge display
  • Weighs just 1.78kg


Dell has continued its incredible form of late that started with the Dell XPS 13. The XPS 15 is one of the most attractive 15-inch laptops you can buy today, and has some of the most powerful components, too.

There are many specifications of this machine available including models with PCI-E-based SSDs and Ultra HD touchscreens. There's something for everyone here. The only thing to watch out for with this laptop is its slightly sub-par battery life, which barely stretches beyond five hours. This isn't bad when you consider how powerful it is, but road warriors should probably look elsewhere.

Video: Our new Dell XPS 15 review is coming soon - here's how the latest model stacks up against the Razer Blade and MacBook Pro

Play games, edit photos, do what you want on the XPS 15. It can handle it.

Dell has announced the XPS 15 will soon be upgraded to newer Intel Kaby Lake processors and a faster Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics cards. We've yet to review the late 2016 model, but with more powerful components and the option of a bigger battery, the new XPS 15 should be a superb machine. Expect our review soon.

Surface Pro 4

Outstanding hybrid tablet with a powerful processor

Key Features:
  • Detachable keyboard base
  • 12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824 resolution screen
  • Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs
The fourth generation Surface Pro is another excellent evolution of Microsoft's successful hybrid. Yes, it isn't a laptop in the traditional sense, but if you're considering buying a laptop then you have to at least consider the Surface Pro.

The latest version has an even better screen – it's larger and sharper, but the Surface Pro itself remains as portable as before. The keyboard cover is much improved, though it still isn't included in the price so don't forget to factor that in.

The overall build quality remains great and we still love the adjustable hinge, which is incredibly strong yet flexible. This versatility, combined with outstanding performance from a comprehensive choice of configurations, makes the Surface Pro 4 one of the best Windows devices around.

Galaxy Tab Pro S
Key features:
  • 12-inch, 2,160x1,400 Super AMOLED display
  • Intel Core M processor
  • Keyboard included

Samung's curious return to the world of Windows hybrids is a modest success. The TabPro S is almost the complete package for less cash than you'd pay for a similarly-specified Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

With that said, it is a flawed experience. The keyboard isn't great and the lack of ports beyond USB Type-C is a real issue when you're trying to use this device in the office. Modest performance is tolerable when you consider how thin and light this thing is, and the fact its battery lasts between eight and nine hours in our benchmarks. That's all-day battery life, which is a big deal.

The screen is the best we've seen on any 2-in-1, and is probably its biggest selling point. It's a shame the package doesn't include a stylus.

Overall, though, it's a decent buy if you're looking for a secondary device away from your desk.

Incredible power from a tablet/laptop hybrid

Key features
  • High-end Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs
  • Dedicated Nvidia Graphics
  • 13.3in detachable display
Microsoft rather pushed the boat out when it launched the Surface Book, a laptop-lablet hybrid it hopes to create an entirely new branch of ultra-powerful convertible laptops. Detach the screen and you have a powerful tablet with admittedly poor battery life.

Re-attach it and you get a fantastic laptop with dedicated graphics and decent battery life. Use the Surface Pen and you have yourself a great doodling machine. There really is something for everyone.

It's expensive. Goodness, it is expensive. If you're after raw value for money, you'll need to look elsewhere. But if your budget will stretch, the Surface Book will turn heads.

"Best Laptop for Video Editing" -- was this category just an excuse to get an Apple laptop in the winners?

I think the newly updated Dell Precision M3800 is also worth a spot here, either in the best 15-inch laptop or the best laptop for video editing category (or both). It can be configured with a 4K screen, an mSATA SSD + 2.5" magnetic drive (so you have a fast ssd + lots of space), comes with Nvidia Quadro graphics and some benchmarks show it to be even faster than the Macbook Pro in video editing tasks. The downside of course is that it's quite expensive. Still well worth a look if you're in the market for such a machine.

The retina Macbook Pro is widely used by video editing professionals (perhaps more than any other laptop). And video editing is a clear laptop category (though maybe a bit niche, not mainstream). So no, I don't think it's "just an excuse"

Thank you, fast_call, I shall investigate the Precision (but I bet it's a far from ideal LAP-top, it's probably a tank ;-) ).

I loved my MBP 15" 2013 Retina laptop for 10 months. I loved the performance, the software, the looks.

THEN... to my horror the screen started loosing its anti glare coating. And it continued. Today it has a big blank patch, around 20% of the screen size without coating right in the middle of the screen. It looks terrible and it is not covered by Apples one year warranty.

Many other users are having the same problem. Apple refuses to acknowledge the problem and calls it "cosmetic", explains that it is caused by finger grease and oils being transferred from the keyboard to the screen due to wrong handling and caused by wrong cleaning (even for people using Apples own microfiber cloth) and finally caused by carrying it in a bag - Apples top notch portable $3000 laptop.

Today members of the Apple Support Forums discussion thread and the Facebook group are gathering to prepare a lawsuit against Apple. Should you have the same problem, do not hesitate to join the discussions.

I would stay away from hp. Bought an expensive top of the range hp laptop some years back. The screen kept going black in middle of using it. Spoke with customer service re this during the warranty period and, unlike my experience with previous computer company Dell, hp did not help me with the issue. I was just told to try this and that. When I contacted them with same and unresolved problem after the warranty period, I was told they would no longer help me unless I paid for service. I subsequently found out that hp were having issues with graphics chip - hp never once mentioned possible issue. I will never buy hp again!

I'd stay away from any of the Dell XPS's - way overpriced, and lack polish. I purchased the 2014 version. Camera is the worst - high def, but too bright and very washed out. Not way to fix it other to run special software in background. A real pain. Also disk drive is really slow, and though it has a 32GB SSD cache, it's only configured to use 16GB. The hardrive and SSD combination is super slow, seriously slow. (do a search to the issues surrounding this)

And Dell support - IS THE WORST!. I was on the phone for 45 minutes - just to get a windows disk (that, for this price, should be included). Another time, I was one over 45 minutes - and then simply hung up. Both times, the support rep. said "they were dealing with issues with their system". (and when I say 45 minutes, I'm talking a true - and timed - 45+ minutes)

If I am reading the comments correctly...stay away from Apple, stay away from Dell and stay away from HP. Basically give up on using computers.

Dom Reidman

October 12, 2015, 7:15 am

that is a frightening story although it appears Apple is now replacing some of these screens under warranty. I was just starting to do my research on buying new MBP '15" but this is definitely giving me pause.

Update: Joakim it appears you need to email tcook@apple.com and send pictures of your screen. Most are getting their screens replaced now.

I love my thin and lightweight ultrabook Dell xps 13. It has a great classical design that will love every person, good battery (15 hours of autonomous operation) and 13.3-inch WLED-backlit display. Now my sister wants to buy it. Recently, I saw also good reviews about this model at the amazon and http://www.topreviews.best/mai... I agree with their opinion that it's one of the best.

There's a mistake on page 6. The Surface Pro 4 runs a Core M3 not a Core i3.

Why did you say for the MacBook Pro with Retina display 15-inch:

"Powerful 15-inch laptop that's great for video editing".
It only has a R9 M370X, which is similar to 950m. 950m is not video editing.
950m is just for mainstream and basic gaming on low resolutions.
