Best 15in notebooks

We round up the best 15in laptops on the Australian market

Due to their size, plentiful features and low price, 15in laptops still represent the sweet spot in the market. Pricing for a well-featured 15in notebook starts at around $800 and it can go up to around $2000 depending on its specifications. In this round-up, we've gathered some of the best 15in laptops we've seen to date, including the Medion Akoya P6624 (MD98390). While the Medion is not always available (Aldi usually sells them every few months), it's worth keeping it mind for when it does go on sale at Aldi. Almost every Medion model we've seen offers incredible value. We've also included HP's Pavilion dv6, which is a quad-core laptop for $999, as well as Dell's very popular Inspiron 15R, Samsung's glossy R590-JS02AU, MSI's FX600, Lenovo's business-centric Thinkpad T510 and Acer's Aspire Timeline X.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 5820TG

We think the Acer Aspire TimelineX 5820TG is a great notebook. It's comfortable to use, and despite its size it is not inconceivable that you could lug it to and from work or uni.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
