Top 10 Laptop Brands –

  1. MSI

Razer isn’t the only one in this new category of thin and light gaming laptops. Close on its heels is the stunning MSI GS65 Stealth Thin which is just as light, thin and powerful. While MSI scores pretty much as the Razer when it comes to build quality, performance and features, it finds itself at the bottom of this list due to a relatively poor tech support.

Brand Score – 3.2 out of 5

  1. Razer

Finally, one for the gamers! Razer breaks into the top 10 list with a deceptively bold laptop – the Razer Blade. An all black unibody aluminium chassis and weighing only 4.5 pounds, Razer is well within its rights to claim that they are Apple of gaming. Innovating a space which usually saw a more bulkier variants for the gamers, Razer, we believe is here to stay on this list.

  1. Samsung

Bringing in their A-game to the laptop business, Samsung is steadily gaining ground in this list. Being a relatively late entrant here, Samsung is betting high on its well rounded product line up – from the budget friendly variants taking on the likes of Acer and some of the high-end variants slowly picking up in the enterprise systems space. Its touch-screen laptop, the Notebook 7, leads the Samsung pack with gorgeous design backed by good battery life and new gen processors.

  1. Microsoft

Microsoft may not have a the diversity in its product line-up of those brands that precedes it in this list, its flagship product – the Surface Pro – surely beats everything else in its versatility. A superbly designed product with a detachable keyboard and packed with high-end processors, it leads in the nascent tablet-laptop niche space.

Brand Score – 3.7 out of 5

  1. Apple

While it remains the holy grail of mobile phones, Apple has simply not been the most preferred brand in the laptop category. While tech connoisseurs still vouch and prefer this alpha brand, it continues  to be at the top in its US market. But for the rest of the world it still remains an aspirational brand as opposed to a more accessible brands that dominate the top 5 in this list.

Brand Score – 3.7 out of 5

  1. Asus

Giving a stiff competition to Acer, both in terms of product quality and budget pricing, is the Taipei headquartered Asus. Its ZenBook series has continued to the best performer in Asus’ line-up and again manages to be in the top 5 brands purely with its clout in the Asian and African markets.

Brand Score – 3.8 out of 5

  1. Acer

Backing its bargain-basement prices with premium features, Acer continues to be disruptor in the laptop business and manages to safely secure itself to be in top 5 of this list. An impressive line up that includes Aspire series and Spin 1, Acer manages to be go-to brand for first time buyers and personal system purchases, especially in the highly price sensitive Asian and African markets.

Brand Score – 3.9 out of 5

  1. HP

A product line which includes the beautifully crafted HP Spectre x360 to the more budget friendly HP Envy 13t, HP comes in a close third to its long standing competitor Dell. A steady performer in the consumer’ choice index, across the globe, HP continues its hold on the top 3 Laptop brands in the world.

Brand Score – 4.1 out of 5

  1. Dell

While the company itself has seen ups and downs over the last few years, it definitely has not deterred them in coming out with products that still retain the qualities that made Dell one the most loved and used brands across the globe. While its popularity took a beating in its home country, US, they have smartly moved from strength to strength in Asian market. Again, Dell like Lenovo has placed its bets on enterprise sales and reaping in the benefits backed by superlative quality of its products and customer support.

Brand Score – 4.1 out of 5

  1. Lenovo

Over the last 5 years, Lenovo has quietly displaced the likes of Apple and Dell, to be the most preferred brand when it comes to enterprise sales. It has an unbeatable product line-up that boasts the likes of trusted work-horse Thinkpad to the more versatile Yoga 920. While their customer support may be something that needs a bit tweaking, they more than make up for it with products that beats others in the list in terms of design, innovation and most importantly product quality.
