Reasons to avoid
-Display not bright enough-Buggy in tablet mode

Starting off with the list with the most recent launch from Lenovo, the IdeaPad Flex 5. This is one of the best all-rounders you can get in India right now. This offers insane value for money and is our favourite pick for those who are working from home. 

The design is premium and classy. The laptop comes with a hinge mechanism which allows you to use it in any angle you want - laptop, tablet, tent mode. The display is good for indoor usage while in outdoor conditions it is very reflective and the 250nits brightness makes it harder to see the content. 

On the inside, there is powered by Ryzen 5 4500U processor making it one of the few laptops in the segment to sport the chipset. The raw CPU performance beats the competitions with a fair bit of margin. The convertible form factor means you can quickly switch from work mode to entertainment mode. Additionally, you also get a privacy shutter, fingerprint scanner, front-firing speakers, and fast charging.

With an overhauled keyboard, a stylus in the box, excellent speakers and a gorgeous touchscreen, the HP Spectre x360 holds its own against anything Apple can show. In fact, some of the features have even drawn their inspiration from Apple's design.

The four-speaker arrangement, reminiscent of the iPad Pro, ensures user-facing sound regardless of its orientation. Meanwhile, the new x360 dual-wields USB-C ports for faster charging and data transfers. Sound familiar? At the same time, none of this stifles the battery life, which manages to exceed eight hours of straight use.

What’s more, the HP Spectre x360 can now be configured with a 4K screen and 1TB of SSD storage at a reasonable premium, making it even more deserving of the top spot on our list.
