CES 2017 is certainly the biggest electronics show on Earth and you may be sure computer manufacturers are pulling all the stops to guarantee that their desktop and laptop technologies emerge on top.
So which notebooks are the best for 2017? Here are five that really stood out at the event.
HP Spectre X360
As the name suggests this HP laptop due for a 2017 release is primarily going to command attention for its 360-degree hinge. It also has 4K resolution, which makes for a truly gorgeous display.
Watch out for the slim and super thin design as well as its long battery life (9.5 hours). Under the hood, it runs on the latest Intel Core i5 or i7 processor.
Razer Blade Stealth
For its own merits, we can never say that the Stealth is a mere alternative to the HP Spectre. That thought has crossed our mind largely because of its lightweight footprint as well as its innards, which also boasts of an Intel Core i7 processor. This 12.5-inch laptop, however, distinguishes itself in several fronts. There is, for example, the high-definition display and the rigid chassis that promises it will be a tough nut to crack.
Lenovo Yoga 900S
What we love about this device is the fact that you will have to pay a mid-ranger price for its high-end specs. At $1,099, you get to take home a laptop rocking Intel Core i7 processor and a battery that could last up to 10.5 hours. Lenovo also claims that it is the thinnest convertible laptop in the world today.
Samsung Notebook 9
While it is not capable of a 360-degree acrobatics as it can only manage 180, this laptop is certainly one of the best. Despite its size and the technology it is packing, it manages to be so light, you can carry it around with one hand. It certainly does not hurt that it is also a looker with its graceful and lean trim.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga
The OLED display of the X1 Yoga is almost worth the laptop’s $1,499 price tag. With its ThinkPad credentials, expect that it will ship with excellent keyboard. Finally, Lenovo promises that this laptop has an insane 16-hour battery life.
This device is severely angular, which gives the laptop its own unique aesthetic vibe. It is being marketed for business users but at $999, it might just be perfect for just about anyone with discriminating aesthetic sensibilities.
