BUYER'S GUIDE / The Best Small & Hybrid/Convertible Laptops

Portable notebooks for users on the move

The 4 best laptops of the moment: the best all-rounder, the best-value laptop, the best budget option, the best choice if money is no object.

Editor's Choice : HP Spectre x360

The Spectre x360 is a stellar laptop. Not only does it have an outstanding body, but the screen is of the highest quality, it's versatile and it has plenty of battery life in it. This is pretty close to perfection, we'd love to see more of this from HP!

Apple Alternative : Apple MacBook Pro 13" (2015)

The MacBook Pro 13.3" is still an appealing product and performed excellently in our tests. The changes made to the 2015 model aren't monumental, but they do make the device even more of a pleasure to use. If you're looking for a top notebook (and if you have the means), this would be an excellent choice.

Good Value : Asus ZenBook UX305

The Asus UX305 will suit anyone looking for a transportable laptop, especially users who favour endurance over power. We particularly liked its design, speed and value for money.

Budget Option : Asus Transformer Book T100TA

The Asus Transformer Book T100TA is kind of different for a hybrid. It has extremely low performance as a laptop (productivity and web browsing will be all you do on it), but excellent performance as a tablet. Considering the price, it would be a great choice as a standalone Windows 8 slate.
