Razer Blade Stealth
If you want a small form-factor notebook that can handle a few games then you shouldn’t look much further than the Razer Blade Stealth, featuring up to an Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD Graphics 620, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to a 4K IGZO LED display, it is a sleek gaming-focused ultrabook that certainly impresses.
If you are willing to trade out the compactness of the Stealth then its bigger brother might be a better option for you, and for good reason. It tops off an Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core Processor and up to a 4K touchscreen display with an Nvidia GeForce 1080 GPU, yes a blooming 1080 in a laptop.
Dell XPS 13
The Dell XPS 13 proves that Dell is still dedicated to the laptop market, it’s a great-looking little thing that features up to a QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800) display with an InfinityEdge design and a sleek overall look.
ASUS Zenbook UX305CA
The ASUS Zenbook UX305CA is a great-looking aluminum Windows laptop that competes closely with the MacBook, but with some big specs alongside it, including an Intel Core M3-6Y30 Processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, and Windows 10 for a mid-range price tag.
HP Chromebook 14
The HP Chromebook 14 is definitely one of the best Chromebooks around, fitting the simple but feature-full Chrome OS into a sleek build that keeps things easy-to-use.
Spectre from HP is one of those laptops that is truely change how Windows laptops are percieved, instead of the history of plastic the HP Spectre features a sleek and slim design that is sure to awe those around you, and the specs are pretty good too with an Intel Core i7-6500U, 8 GB RAM, 512 SSD, Intel HD Graphics Card, Windows 10.

It wouldn’t be a best of laptops list without mentioning the MacBook. It’s slim, it looks amazing and it features a fantastic 12-inch 2,304 x 1,440 LED-backlit IPS display alongside macOS.
MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
Although it is very controversal, you have to consider the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar as one of the best laptops of 2016, featuring a brand new and brighter display that simply isn’t beat, a fantasticaly clicky keyboard, and the interesting addition of the Touch Bar. It also comes with that sleek design that we all know and love Apple for, but in Space Grey, finally.

If you like laptops that spin and flip then you should take a look at the HP Spectre x360, which spins around a 360-degree hinge to transform it for a number of purposes from watching movies to a normal laptop stnce to a tablet format. And it comes with that fantastic HP lead design.
