Beautiful, compact, and a pleasure to work on - even without a fancy touchbar at the top.

Microsoft Surface Laptop

Microsoft's carpet-covered laptop is an ultra-portable stunner

Asus ZenBook UX310UA

Not quite the whole package, but still difficult to beat for the money. If power and pixels are all that matter, pick this over a MacBook

Dell XPS 13 (2015)

Small in size, great in stature, and an excellent Windows 10 ultrabook with a fantastic infinity display and great performance and good battery life.

Apple MacBook (2017)

Lenovo IdeaPad 320S

Cheap but not nasty makes for a refreshing combination, especially if you're on a tight budget

Razer Blade Stealth

A super-slim laptop that can change, Transformer-like, into a gaming PC beast, Why choose between style and stamina, and playing Skyrim with all the fancy effects? The Blade does both - as long as you invest in the Core.

Microsoft Surface Book

Shorn of its initial bugs, Microsoft's first laptop is a lustworthy machine with premium appeal. It is painfully expensive and struggles with gaming, but plentiful processing power and a pixel-packed touchscreen make it a Windows 10 wizard.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in with Touch Bar (2016)

A fantastic balance of power and form, plus, it's so nice to type on - with a brilliant, bright, colourful screen

Back to school tablet deals

Apple iPad Pro 10.5

Tablets just don't get any better than this right now. A genuine alternative to a bulky laptop.

The best Android tablet around goes toe-to-toe with Apple's iPad Pro. If iOS isn't for you, this is the top tab to buy.

Apple iPad (2017)

The cheapest full-size iPad is still an iPad, which makes it one of the best tablets money can buy

Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6

A clear improvement on Samsung's first attempt at a Windows tablet

Amazon Fire 7 (2017)

Google Pixel C

Turns out the future of laptops looks a lot like an Android hybrid tablet 

Apple iPad Pro 12.9​

Apple's tablet colossus isn't quite as productive as a Surface Pro, but it's still a great device for getting stuff done

Huawei MediaPad M3

Probably the closest thing to an iPad Mini running Android, the M3 is a small, stylish and well-built tablet that's plenty powerful enough for all sorts of streaming and multimedia - even if the overall performance falls a bit short.

Asus ZenPad S 8.0

Yes, the software is frustrating. Yes, the build isn't quite as classy as its competitors. And, yes, the camera isn't too hot, either. But the ZenPad S is also seriously affordable, offering a nice display for a nice price.

Lenovo Yoga Book with Android

Minority Report-styling and Android internals make this one tasty 2-in-1 tab
