2015 is over, and it was a strong year for laptops in general, with tablet sales declining and traditional portable computers managing to stabilise their position in the market as a result. So if you want to get cash for laptop trade-ins and use this money to invest in an upgrade, what are the top machines of 2015 and how have they managed to distinguish themselves from the competition?
Dell XPS 13
If you are looking for a cutting edge sub-£1000 Windows laptop with a gorgeous QHD display and plenty of powerful components, the latest XPS model from Dell could be the right choice for you. It is thin and light and looks just as good as a MacBook Air, all while packing in an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state hard disk for superfast load speeds.
Asus Chromebook Flip
If the Chrome OS is more your cup of tea and you want to experience Google’s cloud-powered platform in all its glory, this touchscreen Chromebook from Asus is a good choice. It has a 10.1 inch display, a 1.8GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, along with a cleverly designed chassis that lets it double up as a tablet.
The 13-inch MacBook Air is still a good choice for fans of Apple, especially since it has great battery life, an SSD for storage and a dual-core Intel chipset with integrated graphics capabilities. It weighs less than most laptops on the market and will be supremely portable.
Recently introduced as the first laptop in the Surface range, this is a true powerhouse thanks to its 2.4GHz processor, Nvidia graphics chip, 8GB of RAM and 13.5-inch display with a 3000×2000 resolution. And it is Microsoft’s only own-brand laptop on the market, setting it apart from its rivals and showing that the software giant can succeed in this arena as well as elsewhere.
