There are plenty of high-performance laptops on the market. Unfortunately, you'll have to navigate a minefield of inferior options. Our laptop reviews and buying guides are here to help you find the best laptop for your needs and your budget.
Overpriced and underpowered, the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 is not the sub-$200 laptop you're looking for.
One of the lightest 15-inch laptops, the VivoBook S510 packs plenty of performance, but annoying usability issues and weak battery life hold it back.
The Lenovo Yoga 720 is a powerful convertible, thanks to its Nvidia GeForce GTX GPU and Core i7 CPU, and it has longer battery life than its competitors.
The HP ZBook Studio G4 is a powerhouse workstation with a beautiful design and a nearly perfect display.
Petite yet powerful, the HP Stream 11 offers long battery life, solid performance and great audio, all for under $200.
The Gigabyte P57Xv7 delivers a big and colorful screen and strong gaming performance in a sleek design, but the audio could be better.
The 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is pricey, but it smokes competing Windows laptops' performance and offers a great display.
The Toshiba Portege X20W is a well-made business 2-in-1 that has great performance but shorter-than-average battery life.
You can configure the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 however you like, but you can't get away from its cheap build quality and flat keyboard.
