Living in a world where no matter where you look you will see a smartphone and a smartwatch or a tablet, it may look like a laptop is an antique device that nobody is using anymore.

That is not true at all. When it comes to editing photos, writing emails all day or writing articles, I truly believe a laptop is a winner.

In today’s world, is getting harder and harder to choose a bad laptop, believe it or not, but even though there is plenty of competition.

Below I’ve listed the 5 best laptops that are available on the market right now.

1. Microsoft Surface Laptop

This is by far the best laptop you can spend your money on.

From their first Surface RT tablet, up to their latest flagship device, the Surface Laptop, Microsoft had seen alot of growth.

What used to be like a tablet with just a few laptop-like features, is now a grown up laptop that rules the market.

I’ve been devoted to a Macbook for several years, and a Microsoft Surface device made me change my mind about Windows devices. Windows 10 Pro has everything a blogger, graphic designer and coder will ever need.

Microsoft Surface Laptop boasts alot of power, battery life, portability and has a gorgeous high-resolution touchscreen. Comes in four different colors, it’s powered by latest Intel processors and can be specced out with up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM.

I suppose you came to this article looking to buy a good laptop, not a cheap one. Therefore, don’t expect the Microsoft Surface Laptop to be cheap. The base model starts from $991.37 and features 6th generation of Intel i5 6th Gen CPU and 128GB of SSD storage.

2. Apple Macbook Pro

If you’re not a Windows guy or you just don’t like Surface devices, go for a Macbook. You’ll fall in love with its sleek and light design, the premium build quality and that amazing trackpad.

You will feel it is a Macbook from the first time you’ll touch it. The most common version people choose is the 13-inch model.

You will find it starting at $1,299 USD. This version will feature a standard keyboard, and two USB-C ports. It will though lack the Touch Bar which it seems to be useless anyway.

3. HP Spectre X360

Starting from $994.95, the HP Spectre is the third best laptop you can buy and it will amaze you with its high-quality materials and the thin design.

It will also offer you a great battery life, 16GB of RAM, 512 GB of SSD storage, and the latest i7 7th generation Intel 7500U CPU.

Also, if you’re picky when it comes to audio, the HP Spectre X360 comes with Bang & Olufsen speakers which are one of the best on the market right now.

May not be number one in my list, but it is definitely a very good choice.

With a price tag of $1,494.11, XPS 13 by Dell may be the best laptop for you.
