Checked for accuracy by our qualified fact-checkers and verifiers. Find out more about fact-checking at CHOICE.

Our tech expert has spent hours testing and comparing each model to find the laptops, 2-in-1s and tablet/keyboard combos that:

  • are the best performers
  • are the easiest to set up and use
  • have the best specs and features.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

We've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.

How to view the best laptops: The main score displayed is for laptop use. To view and compare the tablet use scores alongside laptop use scores, sort by 'Tablet use score' using the 'Sorted by' dropdown menu.

How to view the best tablets: To see which tablets and 2-in-1s we recommend as tablets, tick the 'Recommended for tablet use' box in the left-hand side column. Some devices may score better as tablets than laptops, and vice versa.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find which models have the specs and features you're looking for, such as the crucially important battery life and charging time, types of connection ports, weight and performance. 

System specifications listed are as tested, but minor specifications can change quickly and available models in the same family may differ slightly in model name, specs (e.g. colour, RAM, storage capacity) and price.

Note: The performance scores of models which are discontinued are based on older benchmarks, so for discontinued models the performance score and the CHOICE Expert Rating cannot be compared with current models.

Read our buying guide to find out how to buy the best laptop to suit your needs.
