Best laptops

1. Dell XPS 13

Dell's latest Ultrabook is simply the best laptop in the world

CPU: Intel Core i3 – i7 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 520-620 | RAM: 8GB-16GB | Screen: 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200 x 1800) | Storage: 128GB-512GB SSD

Gorgeous bezel-less display
Faster than ever
Lightweight, compact frame

Saying that we're very happy with Dell's XPS 13 is a huge understatement. The slim profile, revolutionary design and small frame bely its powerful performance and gorgeous 13-inch screen. Typically you'd have to weigh up portability and performance, but the XPS 13 has managed to strike a fine balance between the two. With Intel's latest Skylake processors plus lighting, quick storage and memory, the XPS 13's starting price is certainly an impressive one. We're so chuffed with it that it's taken the top slot as the best Ultrabook, the best Windows laptop and the best overall laptop.

4. Lenovo Yoga Book

Is this the netbook of the future – the ultra netbook?

Insanely thin and light
Halo Keyboard surprisingly accurate
Excellent display
Clever Create Pad

Although the specs are modest, the forward-thinking design of Lenovo's Yoga Book makes it a decent option for creative types and those that want a little more out of their laptops. Sacrificing a bit of raw power means you'll get an innovative digital touchpad and drawing surface for a much more intuitive and precise approach to graphical art.

5. Microsoft Surface Pro 4

The tablet that can replace your laptop

Weight: 766g/786g | Dimensions: 292.10 x 201.42 x 8.45mm | OS: Windows 10 Pro | Screen size: 12.3-inch | Resolution: 2736 x 1824 | CPU: Various | RAM: 4GB/8GB/16GB | Storage: 128GB | Battery: up to 9 hours | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 5MP

Larger, sharper screen
Vastly improved Type Cover
Built in kickstand

We know this is technically not a laptop, but it does come close to being a 2-in-1 (if you get the Type Case) and, most importantly, it has the power to get in the ring with some of its non-tablet competitors. Running the full-blown version of Windows 10 and having the option for a powerful Intel Core processor, this is by far the laptoppiest tablet available, and the price certainly isn't that bad.
