They don't have mobile workstations' independent software vendor (ISV) certifications for specialized computer-aided design, rendering, and scientific apps, but elite systems for digital content creators are some of our favorite laptops. The Dell XPS 15 and the Apple MacBook Pro 16-Inch are probably the best-known, but everyone from Acer and Asus to Gigabyte, Razer, and MSI competes in this space—as does Lenovo, which has just unveiled a third generation of its 15.6-inch ThinkPad X1 Extreme (starts at $1,479; $2,913 as tested). The new Extreme combines elegant design and solid performance with alluring features led by a gorgeous OLED display. Its battery life is a little disappointing and it can't double as a gamer as some competitors can, but it's a first-class creative and productivity partner.
