Laptops from computer manufacturers Toshiba, Acer and Asus have made best-of lists for their performance and affordability in various technology industry media. PCMag.com rated the Toshiba Tecra C50-B1503 as Editors' Choice for best price in 2015 and added the business focused computer to its list of "The 10 Best Laptops." In addition to attractive price, it was recognized for its good battery life and abundance of features.
The Toshiba Chromebook 2 has been recognized as one of "Laptop" magazine's Best Laptops Under $500 in 2015. The Chrome operating system-based computer also scored high marks with Digital Trends for its affordability. The technology website included it as one of its Best Budget Laptops for 2015. "Laptop" praised the computer for its full high-definition, 13-inch display, 8-hour battery life and Skullcandy-powered speakers.
Also on Digital Trends' 2015 Best Budget Laptops list is the Acer Aspire Switch 10. The technology site gave it four out of five stars — the same score that users gave it — because of its low price, long battery life, solid construction and thin profile.
The Asus EeeBook X205TA — one of the least expensive computers on the "Laptop" magazine list of Best Laptops Under $500 in 2015 — was recognized by "Laptop" for its battery life of more than 12 hours, among other features.
