The Best Laptops For 2015
Here is a our list of the best laptops available out there right now.
Choosing the perfect laptop for you is a very personal choice and these can include factors such as operating system preference (Apple OS X or Windows), usage requirements (gaming, designing, music-making, developing etc) and brand.
#1 – Apple MacBook Air 2015
The updated MacBook Air comes in either 11-inch or 13-inch screen sizes. Both have a beautiful LED-backlit display, have up to 512GB of flash storage and come with a choice of either a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor or a 2.2GHz dual-core Intel Core i7. The 11-inch model weighs in at only 1.08kg and the 13-inch at 1.35kg. The 11-inch model’s battery life lasts up to 9 hours, while the 13-inch model has a battery life of up to 12 hours. These flagship notebooks are incredible and definitely the best laptops available right now.
Great for: Users who want the best ultra portable laptop out there and who love Apple OS X Yosemite. Not for everyone but this is the best lightweight laptop around.
#2 – Apple MacBook 2015
The amazing new MacBook comes with a 12-inch LED-backlit Retina display, a choice of 1.1GHz, 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core M processors (with Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz), 512GB flash storage and up to 9 hours battery life. It weighs in at just 0.92kg and comes in gold, silver and space grey. This updated model is so incredibly thin and beautiful. It really is an amazing evolution of the range.
#3 – Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display 13-inch
This MacBook Pro with Retina display is quite simply the best full-sized laptop out there. The MacBook Air outdoes it on portability and perhaps even looks but this solid, yet beautiful, MacBook Pro is certainly a great investment. The amazing Retina display, the fantastic choices in processor and spec and running OS X Mavericks makes this a tough piece of kit to match and it quite simply outperforms every Windows laptop out there.
Great for: Users who want the best laptop out there and who love Apple OS X Mavericks. Not for Windows lovers but this is the best laptop around.
No list of great tablets or laptops would be complete without Microsoft’s most recent masterpiece. Don’t get me wrong, Windows 8.1 is better than Windows 8, though clearly it wasn’t as much of an improvement as most were hoping for, however, this powerhouse of a devices is the best attempt at a tablet / laptop compromise that anyone has produced. If you are someone who loves or needs Windows, this is a great option for you to use.
With models starting with Core i3 processors and 128GB or storage, up to Core i7 processors with 512GB of storage, this really can be a phenomenally useful piece of kit in the right hands and really can replace the laptop you carry everywhere with you at the moment.
Great for: Windows users who want the best out of a laptop without the bulk, plus the added bonus of dropping the keyboard whenever you want.
#5 – Toshiba Chromebook 2
Chromebooks used to be considered a failed experiment, but they have persisted and they do have a place. For users who are mainly cloud-based and don’t need a full laptop or don’t want to get bogged down in Mac OS X or Windows then this lightweight option is worth considering.
This Toshiba is definitely the best looking and arguable the best performing and most desirable of the current batch of Chromebook devices.
Great for: Google users who have their files in the cloud and don’t need to do anything too taxing with a laptop. This device is great for pure Gmail, browsing and Google Drive etc.
