Asus N550JK

The Asus N550JK is an outstanding, versatile laptop. Only the most demanding gamers should find fault with it. Tech-savvy users might want to replace the HDD with an SSD to boost the performance even further and get the absolute most out of this stellar PC.

Best of the rest

Five-Star MacBook

Apple MacBook Pro 15" (2013) award

Apple MacBook Pro 15" (2013)
This year's MacBook Pro 15" is one of the best laptops we've reviewed for this form factor. Anyone who loves quality images will love this computer. Our only qualm with it is the limited number of connections ports. Everything else is great... if not perfect!

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro award

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro
What a surprise! MSI was able to put big processing power in a thin body whose temperatures stay in check. The GS60 Ghost Pro will run any game with high settings, plus it has a great screen and is easy to carry around.

Budget Option

Lenovo IdeaPad S510p

Lenovo IdeaPad S510p
The S510p is well-priced for its specs. It does what it's supposed to and can handle any productivity task, but struggles with complex activities like video encoding. It has fast startup, shutdown and program launching. The only drawbacks are its low-quality display and audio line-out.
