    I wouldn’t choose any of these hunks of junk! An apple computer would be the last one I’d ever consider, ever. The whole article is based on opinion not any real data, even then you can pick and choose data sets to include or exclude data to make your choice the best.

      Your comment is based on opinion as I am sure you have not owned all 3 of these laptops to know how it really runs.

        This entire article is an opinion.

    I would say the MacBook Air is a better choice 11 hours of battery life… I know cell phones with less life. Computers built by HP, Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo, Dell or any of the other countless makers have only 1 huge defect, the Operating System. I have owned 5 or 6 differant brands of laptops and where some were nicer looking than others most often my problems came from software not hardware. I own right now a HP laptop, Dell Laptop and Desktop, MacBook Pro 15, MacBook Air. I can say other than the few programs I need windows to run because the companies do not support OSX yet I would never turn those other ones on.

    I would get the ASUS G750JW gaming laptop cheaper than the Apple Macbook and has way more performance than it.Better in every single way.

    This is the type of article I would completely ignore for advice on laptops. It is merely a biased opinionated article with zero concrete data on what is considered a “best laptop”. Save your money and don’t buy an Apple, there are better options than this for less money.

      So this article is much like your comment. I say if you can afford it apple is best. I have a macbook they rock, I also have a pc laptop. Its ok but I use Windows 7 on my mac if I need to use a windows OS. I also have a desktop 1500$ gaming pc and mac thats 7 years old thats a desktop as well. Mac still runs great for being 7 years old pc works pretty damn well too

        Actually my comment is based on fact. It is fact that you can get a “best overall” laptop for less than an Apple and still have the same or better performance. A higher price does not denote better performance in all cases.
