    Lenovo Ideapad 100S

    Editor's Choice

    Though it costs under $200, Lenovo still equipped the 11.6-inch, Ideapad 100S with a bright screen, springy keyboard and colorful chassis. The 2.2-pound Windows 10 laptop lasted a full 9 hours and 48 minutes on our battery test. That's plenty of unplugged time you can use to edit documents or crunch numbers in Office 365 Personal, which comes free for a year when you buy the 100S.

  • Best 2-in-1

    Lenovo Yoga 900

    Editor's Choice

    As the convertible-computer market leader, Lenovo knows a thing or two about making a great 2-in-1. The Yoga 900 is the flagship device in Lenovo's line of sleek, stylish hybrids. The 2-in-1 features an improved version of its eye-catching watchband hinge, a speedy 6th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU and a gorgeous 13.3-inch 3200 x 1800 rotating display. This year's edition of the flagship hybrid increases the device's battery life by 25 percent, to 8 hours, so you won't feel anxious when you're away from a plug. Plus, the watchband hinge is even stiffer, so the screen doesn't bounce or flop around even when in unusual positions.

    Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15

    When it's time for business, it's essential to have a system that can hold its own, and with Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 15, that's exactly what you get.

This means whether you're walking around the foundry or giving a presentation to the board, the ThinkPad will have your back, and with 8 hours of battery life, it won't tire out before the day is over either.
