Summer starts and so does traveling, and some of us need to keep working while on the go or enjoy watching movies or videos while sitting next to the fireplace. If that is the case, or if you are just looking for a great laptop that will cover all your needs, you have come to the right place. Here are the Best Laptops June 2017 for business, gaming, and media editing / mobile workstation.

Best Business Laptops June 2017

Choosing a business laptop is a delicate process. The key features to look for in a laptop for business use are great battery life, fast storage, and a good keyboard. The top pick for the Business Laptop category goes to Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4, an amazing laptop with some impressive specs: a fast i5 processor, DDR4 memory, a 256 Gb SSD and a Full HD screen.

Top Pick – Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4

Acer-E5-575G-57D4-15-6 Acer did an amazing job at packing a lot of features into a little, portable laptop. Featuring a dual core, 7th gen i5 processor with Hyperthreading, that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. It has a dedicated GeForce 940MX, which is a big plus considering a lot of laptops don’t have dedicated graphics at this price point. The 256 Gb SSD will make Windows 10 fly and file transfer lighting fast. Another great feature is the backlight keyboard, that for people like me, that stay up late doing work, is a must. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, you also get the latest in Wi-Fi technology with MU-MIMO, that will ensure great network performance, even in traffic-heavy areas. Since 256Gb may not be enough for some of us, the laptop also features 2 x USB3.0 ports and the “new” USB-TypeC port, for fast transfer speeds if you need to move files to an external USB or USB-HDD.

Another great pick – Asus P2540UA-AB51

ASUS P-Series P2540UA-AB51

Coming next is the Asus P2540UA-AB51, a more budget-friendly option, featuring a 7th gen i5-7200U CPU, 8gb of DDR4 memory and 1TB of storage (HDD). It also has a stunning 15.6″ screen with FullHd 1080p resolution, that will be great for both productivity and media consumption. The two main features that make this laptop stand out are a fingerprint scanner, and an integrated TPM chip that provides hardware encryption. So why is this in second place? The 1Tb HDD and the integrated graphics are a bit inferior from the Acer, as well as no backlight keyboard for this one, however, you get most of the great specs for 180$ less.

Best Gaming Laptops June 2017

Getting to play our favorite games while on the move is great, if you are like me, a match of Call of Duty or Battlefield is the perfect way to finish the day. To get the best gaming experience on a laptop, we are looking for a powerful processor, dedicated graphics, and a high-resolution screen. So here are the Best Gaming Laptops of June 2017 for gaming on the move.

Top Pick – ROG Strix GL502VM

Asus is not letting us down with this one. The ROG Strix GL502VM is a very powerful machine, featuring the lighting fast GTX1060 graphics card with a whopping 6 Gb of GDDR5 memory. Nvidia has done an amazing job at packing a powerful punch in a small package, and this is the best example. The features don’t end here though, this laptop also has a 7th gen i7-7700HQ CPU with Hyperthreading, 16 Gb of DDR4 memory, backlight keyboard, and an amazing 128Gb SSD / 1 Tb HDD combo. If that is not enough to satisfy your gaming needs, you also get a 15.6″, FullHd 1080p screen with G-Sync. Right now you may be thinking, “And how heavy and big is this machine?”, well, is less than 1″ thick, and it weighs only 4.9 lb!

Best Media Editing / Workstation Laptops of June 2017

Not all of us will be writing documents or playing games. Some may need some computing power for Graphics Design or Video Editing, that is why I’ve put together the best picks for Mobile Workstation / Media Editing laptops of June 2017. The features that we are looking for in a Mobile Workstation are a powerful processor, dedicated graphics, and good and fast RAM. So let’s jump in!

 

Top Pick – Lenovo Thinkpad P50

While this is probably not the most beautiful of the laptops, it packs some punch, so don’t let appearances mess with your head. This amazing beast packs an Intel Xeon E3-1505M Quad core processor with vPro technology, a Nvidia Quadro 2000M with 4 Gb of GDDR5 (Wow!), 16 Gb of DDR4 memory and a 256 Gb SSD. The screen is a 15.6″ FullHD IPS panel with some amazing viewing angles and colors. We also get a Backlit Keyboard, Fingerprint Reader, and 1 Thunderbolt port. Do you need more?

Another Great Pick – Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY

This pick is a hard one, the Lenovo P50 has great connectivity and powerful specs, but it lacks a better display that will accommodate the needs of those who do Graphics Design or Video Editing at higher resolutions. That is why the 2nd place for the Best Laptops June 2017, in the category of Mobile Workstations, goes to the Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY. This powerful workstation features a 6th gen i7-6700HQ processor, which is powerful enough for most applications like Photoshop and AutoCAD. You also get 8 Gb of DDR3 RAM, 1Tb of storage, with an 8gb cache. This means that the hard drive will perform a little closer to an SSD (but not quite) because the data is saved to the cache, which then is transferred in the background to the actual HDD. The highlight of this laptop, however, goes to the display, that is an amazing LED 15.6″ 4K display – yes your read correctly, 4K- that will blow your eyeballs out of their sockets. Do you have an excuse to not get it?

Budget Pick – Lenovo 15

Not everyone has +800$ to spend on a laptop, and that is ok. Lenovo is coming to the rescue with this very affordable powerful machine. It rocks a 5th gen i7-5500U processor, which is not the latest, but it still packs a punch. The main selling point for this laptop is the dedicated R7 M360 graphics card because there is no such thing as a “Workstation” that uses the integrated graphics. It has a nice 8 Gb of DDR3 RAM, 1TB of storage, backlit keyboard, and Bluetooth. Let’s not forget about the FullHD display, either. So overall, this will do the job for a few years, especially if you are not going to be editing very high-resolution images and videos, which for 600$, it’s a very good deal.
