·         Best ultrabook laptop

When it comes to the XPS 13, dell keeps its standards maintained but that strategy keeps producing the best ultrabook. The Kaby Lake XPS 13 shares the similar design as its previously: a high quality aluminum exterior and carbon-fiber top, and that wonderfully sized, bezel-free 13-inch screen.

·         Runner-up

The HP Spectre 13.3 specifically has a distinguishing profile. It’s one of the slimmest ultrabooks around. For anybody coveting the streamlined experience of Apple’s 12-inch MacBook, this 13-inch notebook will bring you closer to that while providing superior functions.

The drawbacks of this sleek notebook are its battery life. This makes its importance a bit lesser yet it has so many other features to become anybody’s priority.

·         Best convertible laptop

The addition of active pen support and the choice of a 4K UHD screen cements this, status as our favorite, even there are a few trade-offs in performance. This seems as an excellent package of 2017.

HP’s revised Spectre x360 is smaller and lighter, and still reigns supreme as the best convertible out there.

A couple of few performance dips on the 4K version, it might win. Though, it can rule this convertible category now and until it’s time to challenge the Dell XPS 13 again.

·         Best budget convertible laptop

Asus gives you a ton of value for the money and arguably the best budget convertible out there.

The Asus ZenBook Flip might not be as elegant as its primary competition, but it costs a lot lesser and can still do the majority of the same workloads but the fact is, its pricing and specs are identical to our favorite budget ultrabook, the Asus UX305. Inside you get a Core m3-6Y30, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, and outside there’s a 1920×1080 IPS screen with an anti-glare finish end.

·         Best hybrid laptop

This is a Surface Pro laptop is the winner of this category and this shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, Microsoft gave life to the concept of hybrid tablet/laptop devices (also known as “2-in-1” laptops

The only drawback is it’s expensive and the important keyboard adds $130 to the price. That means the midrange Surface Pro 4 with 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and a Core i5 is a $1,430 computer.

The arrival of Nvidia’s Pascal-based mobile GPUs has converted to high-end gaming laptops for the very first time; they’re able to run desktops for their money. Case in point is MSI’s GT73VR Titan, which pairs a GTX 1080 mobile GPU with a 17.3-inch, 1920×1080, 120Hz G-Sync panel. It delivers high frame-rate gaming at an unprecedented level.
