How Do We Pick Laptops for Our Buying Guides?
The laptop recommendations that we provide in our buying guides are based on our expertise, which we’ve gained through years by being on the cutting edge of everything that’s been happening in the laptop’s industry.
As mentioned earlier we are a group of passionate laptop experts, so we like to keep ourselves updated when a renowned laptop manufacturer launches a new lineup of laptops or when Intel, AMD or Nvidia announces new CPUs and GPUs. We watch the live keynotes of such product launch events and even attend some in-person where we get to try those newly launched laptops for initial impressions.
This makes us enough capable to weigh different laptop models on the basis of the specs and features they offer for the price and the ones that we think offer the most value make it to our buying guides.
Of course, we also review laptops ourselves (process of which is mentioned below), but hundreds of laptops are launched every year and it’s not possible to review each and every one of them.
But rest assured laptops recommended in our buying guides are up to date and best available options. And our readers love our opinion and praise our laptop buying guides for helping them buy the right laptops for them!
Our Review Process
Our experts review a lot of laptops every year and they all have to pass through a long list of our quality checks.
All of them undergo the usual CPU and GPU benchmarking tests, battery life tests, data transfer speed tests of internal storage drives, tests for brightness-level and color accuracy of the display, keyboard and trackpad tests, and stress tests to check the durability and build quality of chassis.
But after our in-lab tests, our experts also test the laptops for at least 3 days by using them as their main work machine. This helps them to tell you how exactly the laptop behaves and is like to use in real life scenarios.
About Purchase Links in Our Guides
As mentioned earlier, we regularly update all our laptop buying guides to provide you with up-to-date advice and newest and the best laptop recommendations. To do that, we continuously scour the web, ecommerce sites like Amazon, New Egg, Walmart, B&H and more, and also manufacturers’ own web stores.
Basically, we keep an eye on almost every major online laptop retailer out there to find the laptops offering most value for the price to recommend in our buying guides. During this hunt, we also compare the prices of each laptop model at different retailers to find where you can get the best deal on it!
In our buying guides, you will find the places where you can get the best deal on each of our recommended laptops mentioned as the “Best Price Retailers.”
This is also how we end up finding epic laptop deals which we post on the deals section of our website.
Affiliate Disclosure: In most cases, we are affiliated with the retailers that we link to in our buying guides, meaning if you make a purchase through those links, we earn a little commission at no extra cost to you. That’s how we pay our site’s server bills and make our living. But rest assured our laptop recommendations never get manipulated by that. In fact, our editorial team is never made aware of any such associations, and it works completely independent from our advertising & marketing team.
