The Best Laptops of 2023

2023 has been a great year for laptops, with fantastic models for both Mac and Windows users. Here were the best models of the year. 

Coming to you from Matthew Moniz, this excellent video review takes a look at the best laptops of 2023. For general productivity, such as school or office work, the MacBook Air is hailed as the best choice, particularly for its lightness and portability. The video recommends the MacBook Air 15 for those preferring a larger display, but also suggests considering the more affordable 13-inch M1 version for its exceptional battery life and performance. However, for those who prefer Windows, the Asus Zenbook 14X and Zenbook S OLED are highlighted as great alternatives, offering OLED displays and lightweight designs at affordable prices.

When it comes to more powerful Windows laptops, the Lenovo Legion series and Asus Zephyrus models stand out. The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 is praised for affordability, while the Asus Zephyrus G14 wins the 14-inch category for its competitive pricing and feature-rich offerings. For larger 16-inch laptops, a tie is declared between the Asus Zephyrus M16 and the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i, with the latter offering a great balance of performance and value.

The video also touches on the niche category of 17-inch laptops, where the Asus ROG Scar 17 takes the top spot for its remarkable performance, thanks to its AMD x3D processor. For creators, the MacBook Pro 16" is recommended for its impressive battery life, performance, and display, making it an ideal choice for tasks like video editing and graphic design.

For budget-conscious consumers, Moniz advises keeping an eye on deals, especially during the holiday season, as prices can vary significantly. Check out the video above for more.
