Leader: Apple MacBook Pro Retina 15 (2013)

1st

Apple's MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch (2013) has been on the market for a while. Alike its predecessor the notebook impresses with a high-end case, very good input devices, and an extraordinary good high-res Retina display. You can save money when selecting the GPU. An Intel Iris Pro Graphics integrated into the CPU or optionally an Nvidia GT 750M GPU can be configured. The start price ranges from 2000 to 2600 Euros (~$2312 to ~$3006) depending on the configuration.

2nd

Think big. With the NX500JK-DR018HAsus offers a new Zenbook model. This time it is a 15.6-incher. For 2200 Euros (~$2543), the demands on this notebook are especially high and it cannot meet all of them. The 4k panel is top in the pro list with very good colors, high brightness and high contrast. The aluminum chassis belongs to the best ones besides the MacBook Pro's. The keyboard quality is also high and it is apt for prolific writers. The battery life of six hours in the WLAN test is very good for the performance class. But the performances of the GeForce GTX 850M and Core i7-4712HQ are lacking. The CPU does not use its Turbo potential (standard-volt quad-core) by far. The small performance loss can also be seen in benchmarks. The gaming performance of the GTX 850M is not affected, but it is a mid-range GPU. In contrast, the ergonomics are good with cool surfaces and a steady, largely quiet double fan. The maintainability sticks out positively. All components, including the battery, can be reached via a bottom plate.

Mega display: Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T
Mega display: Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T

3rd

Toshiba is not the first manufacturer that has incorporated a display with extraordinary high resolution in a notebook. With 3840x2160 pixels, the resolution of the 15.6-inch Satellite P50t-B-10T is especially fine, and it also supports touch input. The display also has excellent colors and contrast. 1417:1 is rare in the notebook range. The chassis made from aluminum and plastic is elegant but not the best in terms of stability and quality. The tester found the very good input devices with brilliant feedback surprising. The performance of the system is not increased by an SSD, but a hybrid HDD combined with a standard-volt CPU ensures fast processing. A Radeon R9 M265X from AMD is responsible for graphics, but games in Full HD are too much for it. Gamers are not the primary target group of the Satellite P50t-B-10T, but rather demanding consumers or professional users looking for best display quality for specific applications. At best, workstations perform better in terms of display, but customers won't get 4K or comparable resolutions higher than Full HD there. The price of 1377 Euros (~$1592) for the Satellite P50t-B-10T is high, but adequate in view of the unique display.

4th

Asus' N750JK multimedia notebook with a size of 17-inch largely convinced in our test. With Intel quad-core CPU (standard voltage) and Nvidia GTX 850M, which is already based on the new Maxwell architecture, it is also suitable for fans of PC games. While the built-in display has an ergonomic matte surface, it loses points in brightness of the colors. With a battery life of above 5 hours in realistic scenarios, the 17-incher convinces in mobility.

5th

With the V 17 Nitro (VN7-791G-759Q), Acer introduced a gamer with convincing looks and powerful components at the IFA 2014. Now, Acer omits the GeForce GTX 860M and puts lower mid-range hardware in a 15-inch chassis with the same look and branding. The Aspire V 15 Nitro VN7-571G-56NX is available from 659 Euros (~$761). A Core i5-4210U, GeForce 840M, and matte HD display no longer sound like high-end gaming. The 15-incher aims at occasional gamers. They get decent input devices, low emissions during office work and speakers with good sound for a movie night. Bargain hunters should consider selecting an IPS panel and spend a bit more money. Acer incorporated a quite dark, low-contrast TN panel with narrow viewing angles in the price-cutting review model (659 Euros, ~$761).

6th

The Acer Aspire V5-573G-54218G1Taii model with GeForce GTX 850M (Maxwell) could be even considered a gaming notebook, but it only costs 799 Euros (~$922). Besides that, the 15.6-incher features the popular FHD resolution and a contrast-rich IPS display! Is there anything left to be desired? While the low-voltage processor slightly decreases the frame rates, the gaming performance is still outstanding in this price range. Apart from native Full HD, almost all titles of 2013 are playable with maximum details. However, the slim chassis gets quite hot under full load. We liked the good battery life of just under six hours in our Wi-Fi test.

HP Envy 15-k010ng: display disappointment
HP Envy 15-k010ng: display disappointment

7th

HP provides a decent 15-inch device for gaming with the Envy 15-k010ng, which stands out from the competition in the medium price range with its GeForce GTX 850M. In combination with the fast SSD and the Core i7 there shouldn't be any performance issues. However, we noticed during the review that the GeForce GTX 850M runs with a reduced clock, which limits the gaming performance a bit. The device is usually very quiet and cool, and the sturdy and sophisticated construction is convenient. Drawbacks are the missing maintenance cover, the mediocre sound and the bad viewing angles of the TN panel. The latter in particular is not really suited for a high-performance device.

The Asus N550's design and features are partly identical to its bigger N750 brother's, but it uses a different chassis (only one SATA slot). The throughout powerful GTX 850M from Nvidia is also available for the N550. Alike the bigger N750, it is delivered with an external subwoofer, which improves the sound volume of the device.

Not a gaming laptop: Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD
Not a gaming laptop: Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD

9th

Toshiba's Satellite L50-B-1TD is now available with an SSD. The multimedia all-rounder with a size of 15.6-inches brings mid-range hardware. A Radeon R7 M260, Core i7-4510U and a fast SSD deliver sufficient performance for the coming years. However, the R7 M260 is not apt for gamers since it is already too weak for games in HD resolution. IPS display, long battery life, and silent operation while idle are well done. The build quality of the plastic chassis does not meet our expectations for just under 1000 Euros (~$1155) and the connectivity is meager, too.

Conventional: Wortmann Terra Mobile 1774P
Conventional: Wortmann Terra Mobile 1774P

10th

Wortmann focuses on standard solutions: The Terra Mobile 1774P is a rounded 17-incher with a conventional design and a 97 Wh lithium-ion battery which sticks out on the underside. The capacity is necessary in order to achieve a battery life of six hours (WLAN test) despite high power consumption. The processing performance of the Core i7-4712MQ is beyond all doubts and the CPU fully uses its Turbo potential. The GeForce 840M is too weak for the native FHD resolution, but it can cope with high details with resolutions below 1366x768 pixels. The matte TN-type display features relatively good viewing angles. Brightness and contrast are very good and make use in the sun possible without problems. We would like to see faster graphics and an IPS panel for above 1300 Euros (~$1501).

Six notebooks did not make it into our Top 10, but none of them is bad per se and almost all of them achieved a rating in the upper 70% range. Toshiba S models differ from the L models with a higher-quality aluminum finish. In the Satellite S50-B-12U the manufacturer uses quite an unattractive HD panel with TN technology and combines a Core i5 with a Radeon R7 M260. The good speakers are a positive aspect. Gamers will not be happy with the hardware. For the price of the Toshiba, just under 700 Euros (~$808), you'll get e.g. an Acer Aspire E5-571G-536 with GTX 850M.

First of all, HP's Pavilion 17-f130ng lags behind because of a short battery life and relatively low system performance. The AMD A10-5745M (Richland) delivers passable performance for office applications, but it is too weak for games or demanding tools. A matte FHD display, good input devices and solid build quality are rare, yet pros. So, the HP can also be considered an office device.

Lenovo's IdeaPad Z50-75 also features AMD hardware, namely a Kaveri A10-7300 with Radeon R6 M255DX. The tester was surprised: dual graphics got significantly better. There are partly big performance gains. Overall, the gaming potential is still modest. Most current games cannot be played in HD resolution (if high details are selected).

The HP ProBook 470 G2 (G6W68EA) is a desk worker for demanding, yet budget-minded office users. They consider good input devices, a businesslike chassis and best ergonomics important and will find these in the ProBook 470 G2. We regret that HP lacks FHD. HD+ on a 17-inch device appears to be from last year. The ProBook loses points because of its TN display's low brightness and contrast.

The Acer TravelMate P276-MG-56FU also has a size of 17-inches and brings an interesting office combination which is also suitable for gaming: GeForce 840M, Intel Core i5-4210U and a matte, contrast-rich FHD display. Unfortunately, it is only a TN panel. The keyboard is, unfortunately, not apt for typing long texts, especially if a good feedback is desired. Good battery life and two Windows operating systems make the package complete, which Acer offers for 780 Euros (~$901).

The F555LD-XX243H from Asus is a white 15.6-incher with simple all-round components, consisting of GeForce 820M, Core i3-4010U, 8 GB RAM and 1 TB HDD. Due to its poor TN display, its not completely perfect keyboard and the relatively low system performance, it only achieved a satisfactory rating.
