Speedy and spinny

Today’s a good day to freshen up that travel companion laptop. Staples is selling the Acer Spin 3 2-in-1 for $460. The list price for this convertible is $650 on Staples’ site, and you can find an underpowered version on Amazon for $484.

The Staples laptop comes with a dual-core Intel Core i3-8130U processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, which should make it a speedy and responsive modern system. The version on Amazon, by comparison, has just 4GB of RAM and a 1TB spinning hard drive, making it noticeably slower than the Staples model. The Spin 3 also comes with a 14-inch 1080p multi-touch display, two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0, one HDMI, and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi.

The best part of this laptop, however, is that the display can rotate 360-degrees for use as a tablet, regular notebook, or the infamous “tent” mode for watching videos.

If you don’t need a spinning lid and prefer storage space over storage speed, then Newegg’s got an Acer Aspire 3 for just $375. This laptop has a more powerful 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-7200U, 6GB of RAM, and a 1 TB hard drive, but watch out for the low 1366x768 display resolution.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
