1. Dell XPS 13

The latest Ultrabook from Dell is simply the best laptop in the world

CPU: 8th generation Intel Core i5 – i7 | graphics: Intel HD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8 GB-16 GB | Screen: 13.3-inch FHD (1.920 x 1.080) – 4K (3.840 x 2.160) storage: 256 GB – 1 TB SSD

Beautiful new design

Faster than ever

Centered IR webcam

Steeper starting price

Say that we are very happy with Dell & # 39; s XPS 13 is a huge understatement. The slim profile, the revolutionary design and the small frame are not the powerful performance and the beautiful 13-inch screen. Normally you should weigh the portability and performance, but the XPS 13 has managed to achieve a good balance between the two. With Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors plus lighting, fast storage and memory, the starting price of the XPS 13 is certainly impressive. We are so happy that it is still one of our favorite Ultrabooks and has taken the best place as the best Windows laptop and the best overall laptop.

2. Asus ZenBook Flip S UX370

An incredible 2-in-1 that hits the right spot

CPU: Intel Core i7-8550U | graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 | RAM: 16 GB Screen: 13.3 "Full HD touch screen storage: 512 GB PCle SSD

Powerful guts

Super light and thin

Has a price

Fingerprint magnet

Asus has nailed it with the revised ZenBook Flip S 2-in-1. By using the top of the line, plenty of memory and a fast PCLE solid-state drive available in some models, this laptop displays a beautiful new design to perfection, allowing you to use it as a laptop or tablet. Although it costs a pretty penny compared to some of the competitors out there, it would be our best recommendation if money is not a factor.

3. Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 13-inch 2018

CPU: Quad-core Intel Core i3 – i7 | graphics: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 | RAM: 8 GB – 16 GB Screen: 13.3-inch 2,560 x 1,600 IPS | storage: 128 GB – 2 TB PCle 3.0 SSD

Super fast performance

The best MacBook Pro so far

Expensive

No huge generation upgrade

While this may not be a big step forward from the previous generation of MacBook Pros with Touch Bar, the 2018 model is absolutely the best that Apple has produced so far. The Cupertino firm has boosted the performance of the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2018, even more than the larger 15-inch model. A thin OLED display at the top of the keyboard can be customized for different functions and also provides Touch ID for secure logons. And although it retains Apple's signature design, it's not cheap, but you can argue with the choice of being a diehard Apple fan.

4. MSI GS65 Stealth

Get your game with the best

CPU: Intel Core i7 | graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (8 GB GDDR5X VRAM, Max-Q) RAM: 16 GB Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1.920 x 1.080) anti-glare, widescreen 144Hz panel storage: 512 GB M.2 SSD

Beautifully designed

Excellent performer

The chassis warms up quickly

Our previous choice for gaming laptop, the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501, was struck by MSI's GS65 Stealth. With advanced components including an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, it ranks first in gaming laptops. It is also cheaper than the ROG Zephyrus GX501. And it does not look like a handsome gaming laptop; with subtle design tweaks, the GS65 Stealth can continue as a work or study laptop without anyone being wiser.

5. Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

The marriage of luxury and power

CPU: Intel Core i5 – i7 | graphics: Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics card with 4GB HMB2 graphics memory RAM: 8 GB | storage: 512 GB PCle SSD

Impressive power

Slim, ultra thin design

Admittedly expensive

Dell XPS 15 laptops were already some of the best you could buy, but this beautifully redesigned 15-inch 2-in-1 competes in every way with the Dell XPS 13, with the convenience of becoming a tablet when that is needed. It is one of the most aesthetic devices in its category and also has a lot of power. Under the bonnet is a new Intel Kaby Lake G-series processor with discrete class & # 39; Radeon graphics – which means that with the power something more noise is created.
