Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro – Â£999
With a vastly improved processor and a much more appealing build quality, the new Lenovo Yoga 2 is proving incredibly popular at the moment with people who want to avoid Apple, but who still want the same fast and reliable computing experience. This is a particularly slim machine, so you might be shocked to learn that it only measures in at around 15mm when closed. Some people claim this gives the device and less than durable feel, but we think it actually adds to the appeal. The Lenovo comes with 8GB memory and a slightly smaller than expected 250GB hard drive, but itâ€™s great value for money.
Dell VPS 11 – Â£859
For anyone interested in a no frills machine thatâ€™s guaranteed to get the job done, you wonâ€™t go far wrong with the new Dell. For more than a decade now, this company had produced some of the strongest and simplest desktop computers on the market, so it makes sense their laptop designs are just as tough. With 4GB of memory and a 128GB hard drive, this is obviously a little less impressive than the Lenovo, but you wouldn’t know that from using it. We can honestly say this laptop has the most comfortable keyboard weâ€™ve ever come across. You really do need to try it out for yourselves.
Apple Macbook Air 13-inch Â£949
With astonishing battery life and an Intel HD 5000 graphics card, this machine certainly isnâ€™t for the faint of heart. Itâ€™s the first serious laptop from Apple to come in at under Â£1,000, and so we thought that definitely made it worthy of inclusion in this article. Although the manufacturer markets it as an entry-level laptop, it does pretty much everything you would expect and is more than capable of running HD videos, recording studio software and lots more. On top of all this, the battery life is an incredible 12 hours! And thatâ€™s when youâ€™re using the machine to browse online. You wouldnâ€™t think it were possible, would you?
So there you have it guys. Now youâ€™ve heard about some of the best laptops available from computer stores this year for less than Â£1,000, which model will you choose when you finally head out downtown with your credit card?
