It's great to see Microsoft's Surface Laptop and Xbox One X make it to the list because it's an exclusive club. The Surface Laptop is a great premium computer that at the time we called the "best Surface ever" in our review. Its solid construction using metal and Alcantara makes it a joy to behold and use.
The Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made as it features six teraflops of processing power and 12GB of memory. In addition to that, the Xbox One X also contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive. For those looking to make the most of their gaming experience — no matter if it's the desire for higher resolutions or more stable frame rates — the console is the device for you. We called it a "console packed with raw potential" in our review.
