    Asus VivoBook E403NA

    Editor's Choice

    This 14-inch notebook offers two features you don't usually find in a super-affordable laptop: a 1080p screen and an aluminum-clad chassis. Best of all, the VivoBook E403NA weighs just 3.1 pounds and lasts over 8 hours on a charge, which makes it easy to carry with you. The Pentium CPU offers solid performance while a fingerprint reader lets you log into Windows 10 with one touch.

    Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA

    Editor's Choice

    Chromebooks get mocked for being cheap, but the Flip C302CA turns that conventional wisdom on its head. This 2-in-1 has the speed for multitasking, an elegant aluminum design that turns heads, a bright 1080p display and solid battery life. Add that all up, and Asus has built the best Chromebook on the market today.

    Asus ZenBook 14 UX433

    Editor's Choice

    The 2.6-pound ZenBook 14 UX433 shows that Asus is looking to help budget and lighten your bags. Starting at $999, the UX433 fits a 14-inch screen in the chassis we expect for a 13-inch notebook, and tosses in a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, a competitive package for the price. Wetested the $1,198 config, which offers an equally great bang for your buck, with a Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. The ZenBook's also got an ingenious touch: an LED-illuminated touchpad, which allows you to get a full num-pad in a mid-sized laptop, a complete rarity.
