  1. Best Windows Laptop

    The best Windows laptop we've tested is the Dell XPS 15 (2023), a 15.6-inch mobile workstation. Like the Dell XPS 13, one of the best premium Windows laptops on the market, the XPS 15 is a high-end model that provides an excellent user experience. Its thin and light design makes it easy to carry around, and it feels incredibly well built, thanks to its CNC-machined aluminum chassis and carbon fiber keyboard deck. It has a bright and colorful display, a spacious and tactile keyboard, and a large and responsive—albeit non-haptic—touchpad. You can upgrade the FHD+ IPS screen to a 3.5k OLED panel; the OLED looks better and supports touch input; however, it'll drain the battery faster and is susceptible to permanent burn-in.

    Spec-wise, you can configure this laptop with an Intel Core i5, i7, or i9 H-series CPU. These high-performance processors are fast enough to handle demanding workloads like programming and video editing. As for the GPU, you can get the base model with an Intel Arc A370M GPU if your work doesn't require a lot of GPU processing power or upgrade to one of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs (up to a 4070). The NVIDIA GPUs aren't the fastest on the market, as they run at a low TGP (Total Graphics Power) of 40W, but they're still adequate for intensive tasks. Our only complaints are about the webcam and thermals; the webcam's image looks extremely underexposed, and the keyboard gets uncomfortably hot under load.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Windows Laptop

    For those with a lighter workload consisting mainly of text processing, spreadsheets, web browsing, and video playback, go with the LG gram 14 (2023). It's a high-end model that prioritizes portability. It's very compact, and as its name suggests, it's incredibly light, weighing only 2.1 lbs. You can configure it with an Intel 13th Gen Core i5-1340P or i7-1360P processor, which can easily handle general productivity tasks. Battery life sits around ten hours of light use, and if you do need to charge the laptop, you can do so over USB-C, so you don't need to deal with a proprietary charger.

    The overall user experience is great. You get a sharp and colorful 16:10 display, a comfortable and tactile keyboard, and a reasonably large touchpad. Its outstanding port selection includes two USB-C/Thunderbolt 4s, allowing you to transfer files quickly and connect up to two 4k displays at 60Hz with a single cable. It has a great 1080p webcam and a facial recognition IR camera for quick logins via Windows Hello. Like most ultraportables, the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard, so make sure you get enough for your needs upfront.

  1. Best Mid-Range Windows Laptop

    If you want a more modest mid-range model, check out the Lenovo Yoga 7i 16 (2023). This 2-in-1 convertible feels very well built and is relatively thin and light for a 16-inch model, so it's easy to carry around. Its large display gives you plenty of room for split-screen multitasking and supports pen input, though you may need to buy the stylus separately, depending on the model. You can choose between an FHD+ or QHD+ panel; we recommend the latter, as it looks sharper and gets brighter to combat glare. There's Wi-Fi 6E wireless connectivity, a fingerprint sensor and IR camera for biometrics, and tons of ports, including two Thunderbolt 4s and an HDMI.

    This laptop is available with Intel 13th Gen U- and P-series CPUs, which are plenty fast for general productivity tasks like web browsing, text processing, presentations, and spreadsheets. The RAM maxes out at 16GB and isn't user-replaceable, so get enough for your needs upfront. Battery life is outstanding at over 12 hours of light use on a model with a QHD+ display. Its 1080p webcam isn't bad; the image has a fair amount of fine details but an unnatural tint, and the microphone picks up some background noise

  3. Best Budget Windows Laptop

    The best budget Windows laptop we've tested is the Acer Swift 3 14 (2020), a 14-inch ultraportable. Acer's Swift laptops aren't exactly budget models, as they usually cost around $1,000 USD or more, but because this is an older model from 2020, you can find it at a really good price. It has a nice display, a slightly cramped but decent keyboard, and a good port selection, including a USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 and an HDMI port. Intel's 11th-Gen CPUs are a few years old but are still adequate for general productivity. Our only major complaint is that the webcam's video quality isn't very good.

  4. Best Cheap Windows Laptop

    Our best cheap pick is the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 (2021), a 15.6-inch ultraportable. For around $500, you can get a model with an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of storage. It feels very well built for its price, and its battery lasts through a typical work or school day. Performance-wise, although the Ryzen CPU is two generations behind AMD's latest offerings, it's still plenty fast for general productivity tasks like web browsing, video playback, text processing, and spreadsheets. Most people with a light workload can get by with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. If not, you can always add more later since they're user-replaceable.

    This configuration comes with a 1080p TN display. It looks decently sharp, provides enough space for multitasking, and gets bright enough for use in most settings. However, it doesn't have the best viewing angles, meaning the image quality degrades significantly when viewing from the side, above or below. It also looks a tad washed out due to its narrow color gamut. Port selection is decent; you get two USB-As, a full-size HDMI, and a USB-C port. The downside is that you can't use the USB-C to charge the laptop or connect an external display. A fingerprint sensor is built into the power button so you can log in quickly.
