There’s a lot to like about AMD processors, whether you’re a business multitasker, a competitive gamer, a digital artist, or just a PC enthusiast who demands the best.

The Best Business Laptop, Based on Business Need

Is there even such a thing as a business laptop anymore, given how blurred the lines between what is and what is not a work device have become? It’s not as if all work is done on a computer: You use your smartphone, tablet, and some of you might even use AlexaTM.

So, if you need a machine to edit hundreds of hours of digital video, it must do so consistently, day after day. People who use laptops for work, on the other hand, have very different needs and priorities than those who do not. Work computers aren’t just devices for sending email, surfing the web, or watching YouTube; they’re essential tools for completing tasks. When you think about it, the reason is self-evident. You don’t just need good battery life if you need a business laptop to get you from meeting to meeting without being able to plug it in for charging. You need outstanding battery life.

With that distinction in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best business laptops based on your specific requirements.

The best business laptop for travel

Not every seat on a plane has its own power outlet, and if you’ve ever waited for a flight in a crowded lounge, you know how valuable these outlets are. That is why we created the Few things are more important than battery life when traveling with a laptop. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbonwith a remarkable 15.5-hour battery life Even if you do run out of battery power, one hour will get you back to 80%. If you can stay awake, that should get you from New York to Taipei.

Another resource that can be hard to come by when traveling is time. Wi-FiThe X1 Carbon becomes its own fully independent communication platform with an optional LTE-A mobile data module, allowing it to operate in over 90 countries. ..

That’s why we put the X1 Carbon through more than 200 durability tests and make sure it meets 12 military-grade requirements. Go ahead and hit the road, but make sure you bring a laptop that can withstand a fall. The majority of laptops are easily eliminated from being truly travel worthy due to flimsy construction, cheap materials, and inadequate protection from bumps and spills. Traveling can be taxing on you, and it can be even more taxing on your laptop.

You’ll be blown away if you’ve never seen HDR content on an HDR-capable display. Yes, the X1 Carbon is the first PC with Dolby® VisionTM High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology available. Don’t be surprised if your fellow passengers come to a halt. The additional levels of color, brightness, and contrast give videos and photos a lifelike appearance. Oh, and did we mention how great it is for movies?

The best business laptop for under $1,000

But what if you could get a business laptop for less than $1,000 that had all of the productivity tools you needed, was small and light, and could also be used as a tablet? The price ranges from $979.99 to $1,799.99. Even though we’d all like to say that money isn’t an issue when it comes to our work computers, we can’t always spend as much as we’d like. Lenovo Yoga 730 15”flawlessly It can literally bend over backwards to become a tablet when you want to tap, pinch, and zoom, and a powerful laptop when you need to type, thanks to its 2-in-1 form factor and multi-touch screen.

These extras aren’t necessary for the Yoga 730. Laptops aren’t typically thought to be very upgradeable. When you add a USB Type-C Thunderbolt port, that changes. This 2-in-1 laptop is a presentation powerhouse with discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 4 GB graphics, JBL speakers, and Dolby® Atmos® audio onboard. It can handle everything from sales meetings to product brainstorming sessions. Without ever having to get under the hood, ultra-high-resolution displays, external graphics, and super-fast storage become possible.

The best business laptop for processor-intensive computing

You probably don’t have the luxury of staying in the office and using a dedicated workstation if you typically run very demanding software packages, such as CAD for architecture or engineering. When the client calls, you must leave immediately – and your work must accompany you. So we created the ThinkPad P52s Mobile Workstation, an Ultrabook-class laptop with professional-level NVIDIA® Quadro® P500 2 GB graphics and an Intel® CoreTM i7-8650U with vPro® (1.90GHz, up to 4.20GHz with Turbo Boost, 8MB Cache) processor.

Through the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C / Intel Thunderbolt 3 port, you can connect almost any peripheral, from a secondary monitor to an external graphics card. Do you want to increase your productivity even more? For the ultimate in portable performance, the ThinkPad P52 can be configured with a 4k screen, backlit keyboard, and a massive 1 TB solid state drive.

Without an equally powerful battery, that kind of mobile power wouldn’t last very long, so it has one: A dual-battery configuration with up to 10 cells for a total power of 104 Wh – more than twice the life of a typical laptop.

The best business laptop for everyday computing

Sometimes all you need is a laptop that simply gets the job done at a price that pleases the accounting department – especially when you’re the accounting department (and the CEO, and the CMO…) The design emphasizes simplicity and productivity. Lenovo ThinkPad E580It comes with a full complement of ports, including HDMI and USB Type-C, as well as a battery life of up to 13 hours, allowing you to go anywhere and connect to almost anything. But don’t be fooled by the price. is a powerful Windows 10 laptop with a starting price of $479.99. With a 7th Generation Intel® CoreTM i3 CPU and integrated Intel HD Graphics 620, the E580 is a serious business machine.

There are plenty of ways to customize the E580, from mild to wild, with configurations that include up to 8th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 CPUs (1.80GHz, up to 4.0GHz with Turbo Boost, 8MB Cache) and AMD RadeonTM RX 550 2 GB discrete graphics.

Because it’s a ThinkPad, it comes with extras like superior construction and reliability, a full-size, ergonomic keyboard that’s a joy to type on, and Lenovo Premier Support.

The best for business

We understand that every business is different, and each businessperson has their own set of requirements for their laptop. Don’t worry if we didn’t address your specific requirements in this list. Microsoft Windows 10 is installed on the majority of our laptops because it is the gold standard for business computing, but it is not the only option. Google’s Chrome OS runs on our Lenovo ThinkPad and Ideapad Cloudbooks, allowing you to download compatible apps from the Google Play app store. You have the option of selecting your operating system as well: That’s why Lenovo offers over 50 laptop models, each with its own set of advantages, but all of them are fully customizable, ensuring that you get exactly the machine you want.

Cloudbooks are thin and light, and their cloud-based operating system makes them secure by design. Cloudbooks can be the ideal solution for businesses with highly collaborative teams that don’t require the full application support of a Windows laptop.

That’s something we understand. Your technology just became one less worry with a Lenovo laptop designed for business. Your company requires technology to function, but you don’t want to be concerned about it all of the time.
