One of the perks of my job is being exposed to a lot of laptops. While that may seem like a dream for many the question of which laptop is the best for my usage is, well, complicated.
I recently did a comparison video between the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (3rd generation) compared to the Surface Book 2. While there are plenty of similarities between the two, there are some core differences as well.
But if I had to choose only one laptop, which would it be? In our latest video I'll tell you why I think the X1 Yoga is the better laptop – at least for my needs – compared to the Surface Book 2.
To be clear, I'm not claiming the X1 Yoga is the better choice for everyone – far from it. But when it comes to features, what you pay for, and what you need, well, it's not always about the specification list or raw power (see my HP Envy x2 review, as an example).
The bottom line is this: even for me picking the right laptop in 2018 is getting harder. After we shot this video, I received our review unit of the new Dell XPS 15 (9575) 2-in-1, and I'm now reviewing the HP EliteBook 1040 G4 – both of which are too tempting to ignore.
Where to spend your money on a new laptop is now a reality because there are so many good choices – but that's a problem worth having, for once.
