Apple and Amazon are growing fast, but Microsoft is still the dominant player in the PC space.
And Google is still king.
The best news for consumers is that Microsoft’s Surface is on track to overtake the $2,500 Dell Venue 13 laptop this year, according to research firm IDC.
But if you want a laptop that has enough power to take on the latest gaming consoles and tablets, you’ll want to consider a Surface Pro, which has the same powerful Intel Core i7 processor as its Surface Book counterpart.
It comes with an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 graphics processor, 16GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage, along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M graphics card, up to 16GB.
Microsoft has also added a new Windows 8 Pro edition for its Surface Pro line.
The Pro version offers up to an extra 8GB of memory and a 10.6-inch screen, but it’s the smaller size that makes it the perfect notebook for a gaming or work group.
The Surface Pro 2 comes with the same processor, RAM, GPU, and storage as the Pro edition, but its smaller size makes it ideal for working at home, a laptop with a smaller screen.
The Acer Aspire V5 is a budget notebook that’s also designed for work.
It’s priced at $399, which is more than a quarter of what you’d pay for a laptop like the Surface Book.
The Aspire, too, comes with 16GB RAM and a 5.25-inch display.
The keyboard is fine, but we like that it comes with a dedicated TrackPoint for pointing to things in the environment.
For work, the Aspire comes with Intel Core m5 processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up from 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM on the Surface Pro 3.
And for the price, it has a solid keyboard, an impressive 1080p display, and plenty of storage.
If you’re looking for a good gaming laptop, you might want to look at the Acer Aspira XB280HK.
It has a similar GPU as the Aspiria, but with a much smaller screen (it’s just 0.75 inches in height).
Its gaming capabilities are more limited, but the Acer is still a solid choice if you’re just looking for gaming.
For a solid gaming laptop with solid performance, the Acer VivoBook 14 comes in at $799.
The XB281HK has a 1080p screen, an Nvidia GTX 950MX GPU, up a memory capacity of up to 128GB, and a full SSD drive.
The Vivo is still an entry-level gaming laptop that’s easy to carry around and use as a desk or a desk-top.
For $1,100, the Asus Transformer Book X271S has the best gaming performance of any gaming laptop we’ve reviewed.
Its 13-inch gaming screen is a 2,560×1,440 resolution, and its processor is a Nvidia GeForce 8800M graphics chip.
It also has a 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and Windows 10 Home operating system.
But the Transformer is not a gaming machine, and the Translator Book X7000 is an even better value if you need more gaming power than the Vivo.
It ships with Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics, up up from the Nvidia 8600M in the Vito.
For around $1 a month, you can get an Intel Core Core i5-4570U CPU with 8GB RAM for $1.39 per day.
You can also get an Nvidia GPU, which adds up to 12GB of VRAM, up by $100 from the 12GB in the Core i9-4960X.
If your gaming needs require more power than that, the Nvidia GeForce 980MX GPU will be your best bet.
We’ve tested the Core M and Core i3 CPUs as well, but Nvidia is the only one offering a gaming GPU for the Core and i3, and you’ll likely want to choose the Core m3 or Core i4 for your gaming notebook.
We also tested the i7-4790K and i5 CPUs for our testbed.
AMD has a new CPU for its Ryzen desktop CPUs, the Ryzen 5 1600, which delivers a 1.9GHz boost over the previous Ryzen 5 1500 and 1600, and Intel’s Ryzen 5 1400, which gets up to 2.4GHz boost.
The Ryzen 5 1800X is AMD’s first mainstream desktop CPU to feature a boost over Ryzen 5 1200, which we’ve called the “Core i7 1800X.”
It’s a great gaming chip if you just need more power, but if you plan on gaming for a long time, we’d stick with the Intel Core M chips.
