The Best Business Laptop, Based on Business Need

You use your smartphone, tablet, and some of you might even use AlexaTM. It’s not as if all work is done on a computer: 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?

And yet, when it comes to

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

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

Few things are more important than battery life when traveling with a laptop. 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 ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7with a remarkable 15.5-hour battery life If you can stay awake, that should get you from New York to Taipei. Even if you do run out of battery power, one hour will get you back to 80%.

Wi-Fi is another commodity that can be difficult to come by when traveling. The 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 have 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.

The additional levels of color, brightness, and contrast give videos and photos a lifelike appearance. 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. Oh, and did we mention how great it is for movies? You’ll be blown away if you’ve never seen HDR content on an HDR-capable display.

The best business laptop for under $1,000

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. But what if there was a business laptop that had all of the productivity tools you needed, was small and light, and could also be used as a tablet? tabletThat describes the price range, which starts at $709.99. , at a cost of less than $1,000? Lenovo Yoga C740 15” The Yoga C740 seamlessly transitions from tablet to laptop thanks to its premium 2-in-1 design and brilliant FHD touchscreen, giving you the best of both worlds. flawlessly

All of that changes when you add a USB-C port, which the Yoga C740 has two of. Without having to open the case, you can connect 4K displays, external graphics cards, and solid-state storage. Laptops aren’t always the easiest machines to upgrade. These extras aren’t necessary for the Yoga C740. This 2-in-1 powerhouse can handle anything from HD video conferences to cutting-edge gaming, thanks to integrated Intel® UHD graphics, a Dolby AtmosTM speaker system, and up to 1TB SSD.

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. So we created the ThinkPad P53s Mobile Workstation, a high-performance laptop with NVIDIA® Quadro® P500 2GB graphics and an Intel® CoreTM i7-8665U with vProTM CPU (1.90GHz, up to 4.80GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 Cores, 8MB Cache) and up to 8th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7-8665U with vProTM CPU (1.90GHz, up to 4.80GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 When the client calls, you must leave immediately—and your work must accompany you.

Do you want to upgrade your rig? With the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C / Intel Thunderbolt 3 port, you can connect almost any peripheral you can think of. For the ultimate in portable performance, you can also build a custom ThinkPad P53s with a 4K screen, up to 48GB DDR4 RAM, and a massive 2TB solid state drive, depending on your needs.

If you have a 65W AC adapter, you can use Lenovo’s Rapid Charge technology to get up to 11 hours of battery life from a single one-hour charge. As if by magic. That kind of power doesn’t last very long without a battery to match, so it has one as well. You can get up to 15 hours of battery life from the built-in 57Wh battery.

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 focus of the design is on performance and durability. Lenovo ThinkPad E590It has USB Type-C, two USB 3.1, and HDMI ports, as well as a battery life of up to 11 hours thanks to our Rapid Charge technology. is a powerful Windows 10 laptop that outperforms the competition on every level, and it starts at only $769.30. With an 8th Gen Intel® CoreTM i3 CPU and integrated Intel® UHD Graphics 620, this is a serious business machine. You can stay productive on land, at sea, or in the air without sacrificing performance.

There are plenty of ways to customize your E590 with configurations like an Intel® CoreTM i5-8265U CPU (1.60GHz, up to 3.90GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 cores, 6MB Cache), 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 1TB hard drive.

Because it’s a ThinkPad, you can expect excellent build quality and durability, as well as a full-size keyboard and robust security features (including a fingerprint reader). Overall, working with an E590 is a pleasure.

The best for business

We understand that every business is different, and each businessperson has their own set of requirements for their laptop. 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. You have the option of selecting your operating system as well: Google’s Chrome OS runs on our Lenovo ThinkPad and IdeaPad Chromebooks, allowing you to download compatible apps from the Google Play app store. 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. Don’t worry if we didn’t address your specific requirements in this list.

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

Upgrade to a Windows 10 PC

If your business laptop is still running Windows 7, now is the time to upgrade. Microsoft has decided to stop supporting Windows 7, so it will no longer receive security updates. Even though Windows 7 is still supported, we strongly advise you to upgrade to Windows 10 to ensure your security. That means viruses and hackers who want to steal your data can infect your Windows 7 laptop.

We recommend Windows 10 over previous versions because it is the most recent OS and Microsoft is constantly improving it. Your company deserves the most up-to-date security and software. But, just in case, make a backup of your data on an external hard drive before upgrading. With Windows, upgrading your operating system is simple, and your business data will transfer over without a hitch.

Some Windows 7 laptops will not be able to run 10, so it may be time to upgrade to a new computer. Lenovo is a company that manufactures computers. You’ll need a business laptop with at least a 2GHz processor and 4GB of RAM to run Windows 10 smoothly. ThinkPad laptopEvery new ThinkPad comes with Windows 10, which consistently ranks as one of the best business PCs on the market. In the meantime, our ThinkBook laptop These Windows 10 laptops can assist you in taking your company to new heights. series is a stylish and cost-effective option for everyday business tasks.

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.
