Best laptop 2023: 13 best laptops tested and rated

Laptops. I’ve spent over a decade testing and reviewing them. It’s a passion of mine that puts me in a prime position to help in your quest to find the best laptop for you. Whether you’re looking for a sleek ultraportable for work, a Chromebook for school, a 2-in-1 that doubles as a tablet or a gaming laptop to decimate your foes, this is the place to find it. This page is constantly being updated to reflect the Laptop Mag staff’s current top laptop choices based on our latest reviews. 

March 2023 Updates

We have named the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 to our best laptop list, as this is now the best 2-in-1 laptop we have tested. It features a fast 13th gen CPU along with a dazzling OLED display.

We have also added the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18, which is now our top gaming laptop. This beast includes a Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU along with a 240Hz display in a futuristic design. 

My best laptop recommendations are determined by rating, pricing and use case. We put every laptop through rigorous synthetic tests and we also use them in real-world situations, evaluating overall performance, display brightness, keyboard comfort and much more. We also run our own battery test to let you know how long these laptops last on a charge.
