Lots of computing power in a smaller package. This year we again tested the necessary laptops. These are the best laptops of 2016.1 Score 10
ASUS ZenBook 3
Laptops are still getting thinner and lighter. ASUS is launching their thinnest and lightest notebook yet with the new ZenBook 3. We tested the ASUS ZenBook 3 to see how it works. Read the full review here.
Apple MacBook Pro 2016
For the first time since 2012, Apple has released truly new MacBook Pros with a redesigned chassis. That is not the only innovation, because with the Touch Bar, Apple has also devised a new input method. We started with the 15-inch variant of the MacBook Pro. Read the full review here.
Acer Swift 3
You can't go wrong with the Acer Swift 3. Everything you expect from a laptop is present, with the long battery life and the sturdy design being one of the most important features. We would have liked to have seen 4 GB more RAM, so that you can get just that little bit more out of the laptop. Read the full review here.
Dell Latitude 7370
Dell has developed a very solid and pleasant to work with laptop with the Latitude 13 7370. It is ideal for business users and also offers useful options, such as a fingerprint scanner and NFC and smart card reader, with which you can access the system. The weight of less than 1.3 kilos makes it easy to take with you everywhere. Read the full review here.
Acer Aspire S 13
Acer has managed to create a great laptop with the Aspire S 13. It is handy, fast and very pleasant to work with. The laptop is well finished and thanks to the good viewing angle you can use it well on the road, for work or for entertainment. The price of € 999 is also reasonable considering the hardware that you get in return. Read the full review here.
MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro
The MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro is an excellent laptop, which is nice and fast and which you can work with pleasantly. And although this machine is used as a gaming laptop, it can also be used as a high-end replacement for a desktop PC. Read the full review here.
ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360CA
This ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360CA does exactly what you'd expect it to do. He is nice and fast, quiet, works well and – not unimportantly – he is very economical. However, we have to make a comment regarding the price: 999 euros we think is a lot. For a few hundred euros less you can already buy a good Core i7 laptop, which may be a bit heavier and does not have a screen that you can flip, but offers better performance. But for mobility, economy and compactness you still have to dig deep into your pocket, so this ASUS is not for everyone. Read the full review here.
Lenovo Yoga Book
The Lenovo Yoga Book is a 10-inch mini laptop with a touch-sensitive screen. That doesn't sound exciting, but the convertible is the most special device we tested this year. The keyboard has no physical keys but is pressure sensitive and digitizes paper notes. Very futuristic, but is it really useful for you? Read the full review here.
Acer Chromebook R 13
The Acer Chromebook R13 is the best Chromebook on paper, but also by far the most expensive. 449 euros is a considerable amount for a laptop with Chrome OS, although you do get a beautiful and extensive model in return. The device has a metal housing that feels premium. In addition to the usual connections, it contains a new USB-C port for charging. You can place the Chromebook in different positions and use it as a large tablet, for example. This is made possible by the 13.3-inch touchscreen, which has a sharp Full HD resolution and good viewing angles thanks to an IPS panel. There is also support for Android apps, but they do not come into their own on this screen size. The interface is often too small and cannot be scaled properly. Since the Play Store on Chrome OS is still in beta, it is possible that this will improve.
