20 Of The Best Laptops For Teachers In 2016

20 Of The Best Laptops For Teachers In 2016

Whether for students, teachers, engineers, artists, entrepreneurs--there is something in this list for everyone, from affordable Chromebooks to MacBook Pros and Surface Pros to high-end gaming laptops from Alienware.

The laptops (and a few 2-in-1s) were chosen based on their Performance, Design, Utility, and Value. That is, they had to score well in at least one of these areas, and ideally more than one. Chromebooks, for example, would be high on Value, but lower on Design. Alienware's laptop would be very high on Performance and Design, but lower on Utility (primarily a gaming laptop), and even lower on Value (though that's subjective--depends on what you're looking for).
