Microsoft Surface Book 3

There’s no calling the IT guys anymore, you’re on your own. If you’re looking for a quick and easy list of the best laptops on the market currently, then this is the place for you.

1. Microsoft Surface Book 3

As premium as it gets, the Surface book 3 is a fantastic piece of kit thats sure to perform highly well for all business ventures and personal use. There’s no question as to why the Surface book 3 was chosen as the flagship model for Microsoft, as the sleek design boasts for itself. 

Lightweight with a detachable screen, this laptop is sleek and comfortable to use. A key fault for many detachable laptops is how flimsy they are; usually the keyboard feels cheap and fragile, however, the Surface book 3 is designed to be heavy-duty without the additional weight. Perfect for remote working, use it at your desk or whilst you lounge on the sofa. 

Praised highly for its easy to use keyboard, Microsoft has easily rivalled and upgraded Apple’s light-up magic keyboard with a more comfortable, well-rounded and better spaced version. 

Microsoft’s Surface Book 3 comes with full Windows 10 (pure) and a ready built facial recognition web-cam ready to use. If you’re looking for a powerful motor and a high resolution screen all in one compact device, look no further.

Worthy of premium stature with a tactile keyboard, stunning picture quality and comfortable and sleek design, all without the big price-tag. 

Asus has set a new standard for Chromebook 2 in 1 laptop tablets. Carefully designed for tablet use, the Asus flip has a magnetic clasp to the underside of the notebook when attached beaming a fully functioning laptop design. This design helps the machine feel fluid and solid, typically the keyboard attachment feels cheap and flimsy but Asus does a great job of revolutionising this feature. I wouldn’t be surprised to see more companies copy this design in the future …

The device completely supports Google Play store and runs smoothly. Asus is an admirable company who genuinely listens to their consumers insights, they consistently better their devices and upgrade their tech, its no surprise that the Chromebook flip is their best device yet.
