Toshiba’s Satellite S55T-B5152 is a mid-range laptop equipped decently to handle multitasking and average day-to-day use without freezes or latencies. It doesn’t particularly shine in any areas, but it’s a good and balanced desktop replacement
Starting at $1199 MSRP, the Dell Alienware 15 ANW15-1421SLV is the most accessible version of the brand’s 15-inch gaming laptop series. Launched earlier this year, it’s still highly regarded by many reviewers and satisfied users, mainly because of the specs and more important, the build quality.
The Lenovo G50 59421806 is an entry-level laptop, despite this version of the laptop being the second most valuable out of the three main iterations of the same chassis. Featuring an Intel Core i5 processor, this less than portable unit is most suited as a desktop replacement or as a college computer.
The Zenbook UX303LA-DS51T is a thin, lightweight and powerful ultrabook from ASUS. This is a premium laptop that’s built on the premise of functionality and portability, weighing just 3.2 pounds, a solid choice for any traveling businessman or anyone who wants to take a laptop in a shoulder bag and not feel weighed down by it.
The Acer Aspire V3-572G-543S is a good all purpose laptop with great computing power and graphic rendering capabilities. Launched in January 2015, the Acer boasts “premium performance” with its 5th generation Intel i5 processor and the all new Precision Touchpad, which allows you to navigate more easily around Windows’ 8 touchscreen oriented interface (to evade the lack of a touchscreen capability, a feature many contenders already implemented in their newer models).
