Most of us can’t get through the day without our own personal laptop, whether working in finance, journalism, design or science.

Storing thousands of megabytes of data and allowing you to fulfil your daily work obligations seamlessly means making sure you have the right laptop for your field is fundamental to job efficiency.

That’s why we’ve taken the time to showcase some of the best laptops on the market right now. Some are smaller and light enough to carry around with you on the job, while other bulkier designs can hold more data and feature a better hard drive for processing.

Despite its small size, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon comes with pretty much every feature you need in a productivity machine, making it one of the very best business laptops money can buy. Thanks to a battery life of up to 15.5 hours and a rapid charging feature that brings the battery back up to 80% capacity in only an hour, the X1 Carbon is an ultrabook that can keep you working while on the move.

Perks:
  • Great battery life
  • Lightweight design
  • New and improved touchpad

Huawei MateBook X Pro

Huawei may not be the first name you think of when looking to buy a new business laptop, but the Chinese company has proven itself as an excellent laptop manufacturer with its new MateBook X Pro. You can’t go wrong with its beautiful design that is sure to get appreciative looks in the boardroom. It’s light enough to carry around with you and has an excellent battery life. It’s also one of the cheaper ultrabooks on the market.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 (13.5-inch)

The Surface Book is well worthy of a spot on this list.

Perks:
  • Video editing
  • Great battery life
  • Incredibly powerful
Where to buy:

Apple Macbook Pro with Touch Bar 13-inch

This Macbook is a brilliant upgrade to Apple’s formidable laptop range and it’s one of the best business laptops money can buy. Apple has come out swinging with some seriously improved specs. The 13-inch model can be configured with the latest Intel Core processors, all USB-C ports are not Thunderbolt 3 and you can have up to 16GB of RAM. If you want even more performance, the 15-inch version is worth considering, as it bumps the specs up even more.

Perks:
  • Fast performance
  • New and improved Macbook
  • Great display
Where to buy:

Dell XPS 13

This is easily one of the best business laptops money can buy. It looks sleek, feels great to use and packs a new Intel Kaby Lake G-series CPU, featuring “discrete-class” Radeon graphics. This means this laptop packs serious power, even if it can get a little loud.

Perks:
  • Impressive power
  • Ultra-thin design
  • Good for on-the-go users
Where to buy:

HP Spectre Pro

This is a device that not only oozes luxury with its combination of colour and a clever design, but also one that packs some incredible components. Despite being just over 10mm thick and weighing just over 1.16Kg, it manages to pack a proper Core i7 CPU with a full HD 13.3-inch display, a massive 4-cell 38Whr battery and three USB Type-C connectors.

Perks:
  • Great design
  • Three-year warranty
  • Lightweight
