If you’re shopping for a new laptop, you know that it can be difficult to choose the right one. There are dozens of laptop brands, each with models designed to suit different needs and budgets. That said, if you’re looking to buy an excellent laptop that will last and last, these three best laptops of 2022 (so far) may be exactly what you need.
1) 14 inch Apple MacBook Pro (2021)
If you’re looking for a laptop that will be with you for the next 5 years, look no further. Apple’s latest iteration is a powerhouse that can handle any task thrown at it and then some. With a retina display, fingerprint scanner, and all-day battery life, this is the perfect laptop to get your work done on. The only drawback is its hefty price tag – but if you’re willing to spend just shy of $2K on your new laptop, it might be worth the investment. CNET Editors’ Choice: Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook (2020): Dell has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to laptops, and they’ve once again taken things up a notch. The XPS 13 ultrabook is sleek, lightweight, thin and surprisingly powerful; with Intel’s 8th generation i7 processor inside. What we love most about this laptop is how durable it feels in our hands–and we feel confident using it as our go-to computer no matter where we are. We also love that Dell listened to customer feedback from previous models; finally adding back in the function key row after removing them from their previous iterations due to customer complaints over not having tactile feedback from these buttons when typing without an external keyboard attached.
2) 15.6 inch ASUS GA502DU
This is the most affordable laptop on the list, but don’t let that fool you. With its battery life and quality specs, it’s just as good as the other two! It also has a backlit keyboard to help with typing in dark environments. The ASUS GA502DU comes with an Intel Core i5-8300H processor and 8GB RAM, along with a 256GB SSD for storage. It features both a Full HD display and a 1366x768p display, so it can be used either way. However, the 1366x768p screen does not have touch capability which may be a downside for some people. In addition to these great features, this laptop also comes with Windows 10 Home preinstalled so you can get started right away!
3) Dell XPS 9500
Dell’s XPS 9500 is a sleek, lightweight laptop that offers the latest in hardware and design. It has an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. In addition to its sleek design and power specs, it also comes with a 15.6-inch touchscreen display that supports touch input. However, this laptop doesn’t come cheap at $1,799 MSRP. If you’re looking for something more affordable, Lenovo’s Ideapad 330S ($699 MSRP) is still a great option.
