  1. Wonderful article, just the right post filled with great information about all laptops and electronic’s.
    I have an old Toshiba laptop, it’s about 8 years old. I need a new one because it has it’s moments.
    Everyday there is a problem! Now, I am using my Android, which is not an easy task, as I try to keep up with the intense Super Affiliate Challenge.
    Awesome info at the right time. Great Job!

    • Thank you so much for the encouragement. It’s amazing how many great options are on the market and there is one that will fit every need.

      I was recently amazed at how much better the laptops had gotten. I bought my son a Dell 2-in-1 laptop for college and it was ridiculous as to how fast it was, how thin it was and how many cool new things it has for social networking; and it can be used like a tablet.

      I was impressed.

  2. This is really helpful for people looking for a new laptop. My laptop is still in really great condition. But if I ever decide to get a new one, I will have to look through this article again. Thank you for all of the information. It would have been a little more helpful if it had more about each laptop though. I will have to look over this if I am just scanning for a minute. After I could go and look up more information on each one. This is a really good start to finding one.

    • Thank you for comment about adding more information about each laptop. I agree that is something I should do. I’m a little concerned about making the article too much longer but I think you have a great point about at least adding a little more to each one.

      I appreciate the heads up and I will add some more information, most likely this week.

      Thank you.

  3. I still have my old Dell Laptop I got five years ago and it works fine still. I guess I’m from the old school where you have to make do with what you have or just too cheap to buy something new. But to be honest I have used this computer for all of my blogging and everything I need but am looking at something new down the road. I like the choices you have up on here and will be checking them out. Great article. You out did yourself!

    • Thank you for the compliment. It’s amazing how much time it took to research and write that article. I am creating another article now on the docking stations for each laptop on that list and guess what? It’s taking a long time to do that also.

      I tend to use my computers and laptops for a long time but there comes a time when it decides to take it’s last breath and I get the blue screen from hell, or something like that and than we get to go find ourselves a new fancy hot rod. Even the cheapest and least powerful laptops on this list are still incredible from what we used in the past.

      Let me know when you do upgrade and what you choose.

  4. What a great post, you have written extensively on this topic laptop. You have clearly differentiated the laptops that you have made it easy for one to choose whichever he/she likes.
    Where my eye is on the the top two but I can’t give it a go now my purse isn’t telling me the truth, I will recommend anyone who wants laptop to this site.
    It is a great site.

    • Thank you for the kind words. The top two or three definitely show up more on top laptop reviews for 2018 but they are not necessarily the best laptops for everyone. Some people may want the bigger work horse laptops and others just want to surf the web and can spend a lot less money; but this list definitely has something for everyone.

  5. Awesome post there are so many laptops on the market that it sometimes confuses people about what to buy, but the post that you have written is great this will help your readers know what to look for and how to spend their money. Excellent review.

    • Thank you Norman. There are definitely places to go to get more detailed information but I wanted to begin the discussion of many of the top laptops of 2018 with this article. I was surprised at how quickly it grew in size as I began writing some basic things about each laptop.
