Check out the best Windows laptops, as rated by Digital Trends’ expert reviewers.

Best Windows LaptopsWindows is still the dominant operating system – the race isn’t even close. This means that you can almost certainly find a Windows laptop that fits your needs, no matter what they are.

Apple has successfully given Windows laptops a bad reputation for quality, and corner-cutting manufacturers have sometimes seemed all too willing to provide ammo for Cupertino’s marketers. But with that said, the quality of Windows laptops has been on a definite upward trend, and Windows itself is becoming friendlier to mobile computers with each new version.

There’s a huge range of Windows laptops on the market, so you certainly have plenty to pick from. But we suggest you start with the models below.

Our best Windows laptops list is continually updated as we review new products that enter the market.
