The year 2017 was a fun one for Windows PCs, as 2-in-1 convertibles continued to proliferate and improve, chips got ever smaller and more efficient, and the first Windows ARM PCs began to break cover. And 2018 should prove even more exciting as a result, as Microsoft pursues options for even more crazy form factors.
Today, we want to know: What was your favorite laptop of 2017?
Unlike our Executive Editor Daniel Rubino, I don't have enough laptops to build a small fortress, but out of the ones I did try, the Razer Blade 14-inch 2017 refresh was a hot contender. Quad-core, GTX 1060 graphics, and a sleek design makes this laptop a pleasure to use, but I have my eye firmly on Microsoft's new Surface Book 2 15-inch, which boasts similar power, complete with a 2-in-1 detachable configuration, inking, and other premium features.
