Best Laptops: Holiday 2019

It’s time for our holiday look at the laptop market. After years of waiting, Intel has finally launched its latest 10th generation Core processors based on the long-anticipated 10nm process, and while 10th generation Core for laptops features processors based on both 10nm Ice Lake and 14nm Comet Lake, Ice Lake appears to be quite widespread in many of our pics this quarter. In addition, AMD’s Ryzen platform recently got a new halo device in the Microsoft Surface Laptop lineup, and offers AMD a competitive platform. AMD hasn’t yet launched their latest 7nm Zen 2 parts for laptops yet, but the combination of Zen plus Vega graphics has worked well for them.
