Moving forward from Best laptop (notebooks) 2018 Part 2, we should not waste time but to move forward to the 7th number in our list

A small gaming laptop that packs a huge punch

If you've got the money, you'll be hard pressed to find a laptop that's both as portable and powerful as the Aorus X3 Plus v5. Packing Intel's top-end Skylake processor, paired with a mighty 6GB version of Nvidia's GTX 970M, here is a gaming machine that can play any game at 1080p with the settings cranked up. Featuring an innovative cooling system that blows air out of the back, plenty of ports and a great keyboard, this Stealth Bomber-like machine can slip into your backpack with room to spare. Loading times are barely there thanks to its nippy M.2 SSD, and a decent range of connectivity ports that includes HDMI and DisplayPort Inputs means you can hook it up to an external display when not on the move.

There's something oddly brilliant about HP's Spectre range. Clearly intended to compete with Apple in terms of build quality, but priced just a tiny bit lower to gain some traction with potential buyers. The X360 is another convertible that allows you to fold the screen backwards to create a tablet-style device. This is ideal for Windows 10, although you'll probably not use it much as a tablet because it's still a laptop-weight device.


A class act

SPECIFICATIONS
CPU: Intel Core i5 2.7GHz
Graphics: Intel Iris Graphics 6100
RAM: 8GB
Screen: 13.3- inches 2,560 x 1,600
Storage: 128GB
Connectivity: 2x Thunderbolt 2x USB3
Camera: FacetimeHDWeight: 1.58kg
Dimensions: 12.35 x 8.62 x 0.71-inches

REASONS TO BUY
+Retina Display
+Superb battery life

REASONS TO AVOID
-Force Touch underdeveloped
-Base storage feels small

If we consider that the Air is essentially an Ultrabook then we can safely ignore it in this roundup and head directly to the Pro. It's a larger, heavier machine but it's also the powerhouse of the range. Starting at £999 it's not bad value when you consider it has 8GB of RAM and an i5 2.7GHz and 128GB SSD.

You'll get 10 hours out of the battery, in the ideal conditions, and the real keyboard makes for a pretty delightful user experience. Oh, and the trackpad - there's simply nothing like it on any PC we've ever used, it's a class act.

If you need Windows 10, that's no problem either, just install with Apple's Boot Camp.
