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!

Best of the rest

Apple Alternative

Apple MacBook Pro 13" (2015) award

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

Asus ZenBook UX305
The Acer 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

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.
