Whilst tablets and smartphones have certainly encroached on the market space that was once solely occupied by laptops, the truth is that even today, they are still an essential piece of technology that many people simply cannot do without. Laptops provide a level of functionality and versatility that tablets and smartphones are yet to compete with. With this in mind, the laptop market remains incredibly healthy and the following are just some of the laptops to look out for in 2015
Toshiba Satellite Pro C50 Laptop
Toshiba has been a leading manufacturer in the laptop market for a long time and the introduction of the Satellite is set to cement that status even more. A very neat, tidy and aesthetically pleasing design belies the power within, and probably the easiest of way of describing it is to say that this could well be the laptop that finally propels Toshiba to the top of the tree.
With the Intel® Celeron, Intel Core™ and AMD Processors, superior graphics and sound, and its lightweight design, this is definitely one to watch in 2015. It is fast, efficient, it has more than sufficient memory for the purpose it is intended for and it look great too. One of the best laptops currently on the market is the Toshiba Satellite, simple as that.
Ultrabook Acer Aspire S3
One of the original budget laptops has slowly but surely gained itself quite a market share, and with their latest Aspire models they are going for the big push in 2015. The E111 is the highly anticipated model which is set for a Christmas release.
Acer were condemned in the past for the overall appearance of their laptops and cheap looking keyboards but they look as if they have addressed this from what we have seen of E111. The thin and lightweight 11” device will boast one of the most impressive ethernet ports on the market. This supports Gigabit LAN, so when you are connected to the Internet so you can both surf and send files at a speed of 1000mgb per second. This is clearly a huge benefit for surfers and will likely attract a lot of new customers to the brand who wouldn’t have otherwise considered it.
The Acer Aspire was one of the first laptops to launch using the Windows 8 OS, but don’t hold that against it, this is a dependable laptop that will meet the needs of all but the most demanding user.
HP Chromebook 14
You would be forgiven for thinking one of the biggest names in home computing had been quiet of late, when in fact they have been concentrating on their business machines. They have announced their return to the domestic market with the Chromebook, and very impressive it is too. The HP Chromebook also runs on Windows 8. Click here for a review on the latest OS version.
From the very well-built design to its gorgeous IPS( In-Plane Switching) display this is a very inexpensive laptop that performs like a premier model. The addition of 4G LTE has freed this previously web-centric laptop from the restrictions of Wi-Fi, and this is a killer feature whichever way you look at.
