PCMag.com and LaptopMag.com are two websites that offer information about the best laptops. PCMag.com regularly compiles a list of the best laptops each year in various price ranges, while LaptopMag.com posts different choices of the best laptops based on categories such as the top overall laptop, the best Apple laptop and the best cheap laptop.
PCMag.com seeks to inform consumers about the latest laptop designs and specifications, helping them determine the laptops with the right features that meet their needs. The site recommends laptops with a touch screen feature for individuals who are looking for Windows 8.1 or 10 laptops.

For customers who want high-end features and excellent performance, ultraportable laptops are an ideal choice. Some of these laptops offer features such as battery life lasting more than eight hours, full-size HDMI ports and 1,080-pixel touch screens. As of 2015, several laptops recommended by PCMag.com include the Asus Chromebook Flip, Lenovo ThinkPad T450s and Alienware 15.
