Back to school season is almost upon us, and for those of you looking for a new laptop, there are some great choices. This year, the iPad and Chromebooks are strong contenders. Here are best six units according to reviews online:
Dell XPS 13
The Dell XPS 13 is the top pick and the winner of multiple “best laptop of the year” awards from almost every tech site. The $799 laptop’s best feature is the almost bezel-free screen, along with amazing battery life, and compact design. It is a great all-around pick and is the best choice for students.
HP Chromebook 13 G1
Ask anyone about Chromebooks and most users will say how bad the build, keyboard, and display were in the initial models. The HP Chromebook 13 G1 is what a Chromebook should have been all along. If you don’t need any special software installed, a Chromebook is perfect. At $499, the Chromebook 13 G1 isn’t too hard on the wallet.
Apple iPad Pro (10.5)
The new breed of iPad Pro’s, with their crisp displays, $99 Apple pencil is slowly approaching the point where most people will not want a laptop. Add a Bluetooth keyboard, and it is perfect for home work, essays, and reports. The only downside is that you will need to learn whole new ways of getting the same work done. But, once you do, you will never go back.
