Here goes;

Dell XPS 13


Fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. QHD+ (3K) display. Minimal bezel around screen. Less than three pounds. Premium materials and construction. Shorter battery life than rivals. Limited port selection. One-year warranty. Dell’s razor-thin, light, and powerful XPS 13 Touch packs a fast processor, but the 3,200-by-1,800 (QHD+) touch screen is the star of the show in this premium ultrabook.




Asus ZenBook UX305


Nice price. Quality aluminium build.Sleek design. Solid performance. No keyboard back lighting and Ethernet cables It is a well-made midrange ultraportable with an aluminium body, a full HD touch screen, good performance and plenty features for the very good price



Toshiba Chromebook 2

Sharp 1080p IPS display. Snappy Intel Core i3 processor. Disappointing battery life in testing. Plastic design feels a bit flashy. The Toshiba Chromebook 2 (CB35-C3350) has a high-quality IPS screen and more power than many other Chrome OS-based laptops, but it’s also more expensive, and its battery life could be better



13-inch MacBook Air (early 2015)


Elegant design. Updated Intel Core i5 CPU. More than 17 hours of battery life in testing. No bloatware. Lacks HDMI and Ethernet ports. Relatively low-resolution display. Limited storage capacity. Only upgradable at time of order. The latest upgrade of the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air brings a more powerful Core i5 processor and an astounding 17.5 hours of battery life. It remains our top choice for ultraportable laptops.




 Surface Pro 4



Sharp, vibrant touch display. Full-friction, adjustable kickstand. Improved Surface Pen and Type Cover from the previous iteration. Strong battery life in testing. Pricey. Type Cover sold separately. Still only one USB port. The Surface Pro 4 is the best version of Microsoft’s tablet yet, with a stellar display, snappy performance, and more than 10 hours of battery life. With Windows 10, the Surface Pen, and optional Type Cover, it can replace your laptop.



Surface Book


Versatile detachable-hybrid design. Light and comfortable to use in Tablet mode. Constructed of premium materials. Brilliant 3,000-by-2,000-pixel display. Electrically actuated mechanical latch. More than 15 hours of battery life in testing. No bloatware. Pricey. No ports on tablet body. Does not lie flat when closed.

Asus Chromebook Flip


Rockchip RK3288C processor provides impressive performance. Long battery life in testing. Aluminum construction and convertible design. Touch screen. Display resolution is lower than that of most other chromebooks. The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.



MacBook (2016)

Gorgeous, thin build. Weighs less than 2 pounds. Retina Display. 11 hours of battery life. Excellent-sounding speakers. Available in four colors including Rose Gold. Limited connectivity with a single USB-C port, and no adapters are included. USB-C is not Thunderbolt-compatible. Shallow keyboard and Force Touch trackpad take some getting used to. Internal upgrades can only be made at initial purchase. The insanely sleek 12-inch MacBook is still the lightest Apple laptop, but competing Windows laptops have caught up in thinness, weight, and screen quality.



Lenovo Yoga 900


Innovative multimode hinge. Powerful Intel Core i7 CPU. Almost 11 hours of battery life in our tests. Higher-than-1080p-resolution display. USB-C port. Function key row. Screen colors aren’t as bright as that of rivals. Connecting to an external display requires a separate USB-C adapter. Clicky trackpad. Fan noise. The Lenovo Yoga 900 premium convertible-hybrid laptop is a wonder of engineering, with a complex multimode hinge that lets you use it in a wide variety of positions. Yet it measures just a half-inch thick.



HP Spectre x360


Slim, stylish design. Smooth geared hinge. Fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. All-day battery life. Extra-wide touchpad. Minimal bloatware. Full HD resolution is relatively low. The HP Spectre x360 13t midrange convertible-hybrid laptop combines premium, all-metal construction, a refined portable design, and solid performance that matches that of more expensive systems.



Asus transformer


Low price. Strong performance and good battery life in testing. 64-bit operating system. Attractive In-Plane Switching (IPS) display. USB Type-C ports. Dual-band Wi-Fi. Top-heavy design when docked. Finicky docking system. Front- and rear-facing cameras are mediocre. Short on storage.

MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina display (early 2015)


Brilliant higher-than-1080p-resolution Retina screen. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports. 16GB of system memory is standard. Comes with iLife and iWork software suites. More than 11 hours of battery life in testing. Competitors have 4K screens. Glossy display, with no matte option. 256GB storage is light. Ethernet requires adapter. No USB-C port. The latest Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina display gets a Force Touch trackpad and better battery capacity than its predecessor, but it faces stiff competition.



HP Spectre x2


In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen with higher-than-1080p resolution. Two USB-C ports. 4G LTE radio. 9 hours of battery life in testing. Comes with backlit keyboard case that’s rigid for easy lap typing. No HDMI or USB 3.0 ports. Woefully soft speakers.

Dell Latitude 13 7000


Keyboard dock has a good selection of ports, and a battery that provides 10 hours of life. Backlit keyboard. No bloatware. Three-year warranty. No I/O ports on tablet. The Dell Latitude 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 (7350) detachable-hybrid tablet is a great middle ground between a slim tablet and a clamshell laptop.



Dell Inspiron 13 7000


Sharp detail from IPS screen. Speedy Core i7 processor and solid-state drive (SSD). Minimal bloatware. A little bulky as a tablet. USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports are the same color. The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 Special Edition (7352) has premium features, like a fifth-generation Core i7 processor, sharp In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen, and an aluminum palm rest, which help the system stand out in an increasingly crowded field of convertible-hybrid laptops.
