While buying a laptop can be challenging for a layman, certain aspects separate the good from the best. The top laptops, for instance, carry the perfect blend of power, portability, comfort, and efficiency. So, as 2021 draws to a close, let us talk about some of the laptops that stood out during the year – and are likely to dominate in 2022.
Laptops that You Should Consider Buying:
1. HP Envy 13 (2020)
The 2020 model for the HP Envy 13 is not that different from its forerunner in terms of design, boasting a refined and portable finish. Having said that, the latest HP Envy 13 model certainly contains some extra features that make the laptop even more desirable.
The keyboard, for one, offers built-in privacy modes for the webcam and microphone, while the slimmer bezels add to the brightness of the display.
The specs are well-rounded, allowing you to enjoy a maximum storage of 1TB, along with the option of adding Nvidia GeForce MX350 graphic card to the mix, without burning a hole in your pocket. HP is particularly competitive when it comes to price.
2. LG Gram 17 (2021)
We believed that the previous LG Gram 17 model was as good as they come, but LG has managed to outdo themselves with the 2021.
The laptop is still as lightweight as it always was, but without the minor issues (mainly with the speaker and the track-pad) that niggled the previous model. There has also been an improvement on the design front.
The laptop boasts a premium screen and an impeccable battery life, along with an enhancement to the Thunderbolt 4.
If you are looking for something cheaper and smaller without compromising on most of the Gram 17 features, you can even consider purchasing LG’s Gram 16.
3. Huawei Matebook D14
The Matebook D14 is more of a mid-range laptop, but Huawei needs to be credited for making it seem like a premium choice.
With its AMD Internals, the Huawei Matebook 14 can really give laptops in the same price range an incredibly tough time. Despite not being a gaming laptop per se, the Matebook 14’s Radeon Vega 8 graphics can definitely drive casual games, such as Rocket League and Fortnite, without any problems.
The battery can give you anywhere between 10 hours to a full day, while the 65W charging allows you to replenish almost half of your battery within a quick 30 minutes.
4. Acer Swift 5 (2020)
Acer has managed to produce yet another impressive, all-round laptop.
While the Acer 5 might be slightly expensive than its predecessor, it is certainly immensely lightweight and compact – not to mention the fact that it comes with a wide range of porting options, including the Thunderbolt 4.
While the speakers and keyboard certainly have room for improvement, the Swift 5 has certainly upgraded the display and overall performance. On the whole, the Acer Swift 5 ticks most boxes, and there is not much to disapprove of.
To conclude, we hope that this brief guide will help you in choosing your next laptop. Remember that, at the end of the day, the best laptop is one that fits your needs and requirements without forcing you to break the bank.
