LG gram 15 (15Z980) Review & Rating

LG entered the US laptop market with its 14-inch gram in early 2016, which was followed closely by the 15.6-inch version. The claim to fame for both was their ultra-lightweight designs, a trend that happily continues with the latest gram models. At just 2.41 pounds, the LG gram 15 (15Z980) ($1,999) is the lightest 15.6-inch notebook we know of—lighter than, and thanks to a nearly borderless screen not much larger than, most 14-inch laptops. It’s also a capable desktop-replacement with…

Acer Aspire 5 (A517-51G-8433) Review & Rating

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a 17.3-inch laptop that’s not a gaming rig or a mobile workstation. Instead, the Acer Aspire 5 model A517-51G-8433 (starts at $499.99; $999.99 as tested) is a desktop-replacement aimed at home users who want a big screen for general applications and multimedia, whether that’s surfing the web, watching movies on DVD (it has something else rarely seen these days, an optical drive), or casual gaming thanks to its entry-level discrete graphics. Can you…

Falcon Northwest TLX Review & Rating

The Falcon Northwest TLX (starts at $2,200; $2,375 as tested) is a slim and powerful gaming laptop thanks to Nvidia’s Max-Q design.

It also boasts a flashy automotive paint job, a customization option that can add some class or flash (and, yes, some cost) to your machine. The Origin PC EVO15-S remains our Editors’ Choice for this price range, just edging…

Dell Latitude 7390 2-in-1 Review & Rating

The Dell Latitude 7390 2-in-1 (starts at $1,149; $2,209 as configured) packs in a lot of the features that IT departments consider necessary for deploying to their fleets. It’s backed by a powerful eighth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, has all-day battery life, and offers a fingerprint reader and face-recognition camera for secure logins. It comes within a hair of unseating our current top choice for business convertibles, the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2. But the G2, with its multitude of…

CTL Chromebook J41 Review & Rating

CTL sticks to the basics with its latest classroom chromebook. The 11.6-inch Chromebook J41 ($219) ditches the whiteboard lid, rotatable webcam, and retractable handle of the CTL NL61TX we reviewed last year in favor of an all-black body with a rubberized coating that’s pleasing to the touch while also helping to avoid slippage. Its rugged chassis should withstand a drop, as well as being casually tossed around at school. The Editors’ Choice Acer Chromebook Spin 11 offers military-grade ruggedness, but…

Asus ZenBook UX331UN Review & Rating

If you’re searching for a well designed 13-inch ultraportable laptop with a relatively powerful discrete graphics card that’s easy to carry with you, you might be wringing your hands at the lack of options. In fact, some of the most popular ultraportables, including the Dell XPS 13 and the Apple MacBook Air, can’t be ordered with a discrete GPU. That’s where the Asus ZenBook UX331UN ($999) comes in. It’s among the thinnest and lightest ultraportables we’ve reviewed recently, but it’s…
