Editor's Notes

January 15, 2019:

It's as good a time as ever to pick up a new laptop, especially because components are getting more compact and efficient than ever. A relative newcomer to the scene, the Huawei not only performs with the best (aside from gaming), but it looks, feels, and runs like a truly professional-quality machine. The Dell XPS is no stranger to "best of" lists, and this year's update only pushes the envelope further. The Razer and Acer Predator are fantastic gaming machines, both capable of ultra-high frame rates with reasonable to high-end settings. The Yoga C930, ZenBook Flip, and Surface Pro are incredibly thin and light, and slip easily into almost any bag or briefcase, making it wildly simple to have a seamless computing experience on the road. If you're on a tight budget, it's almost impossible to beat the Acer Swift 7, while if you DON'T have any budget constraints, whatsoever, the MacBook Pro could make a great choice. If you like MacOS, of course,.
