Editors' Comments

11/10/2017: The Swift 3 SF314-52G (14-inch), a GeForce MX150-equipped mainstream notebook made by Acer, missed our top 10 list by a hair’s breadth. Its 15-inch sibling fared slightly better and can be found in 10th place. Also not on our list: Dell’s ginormous 17-inch (!) convertible Inspiron 17-7773, which we have classified as a multimedia notebook based on its performance (GeForce MX150).

12/06/2017: Acer's Aspire 7 A715-71G-53TU misses our Top 10, but the hardware with a 45 W SoC & GeForce GTX 1050 graphics is still interesting. Build quality, color gamut, and the port selection on the 15-inch laptop could be better though.

GeForce GTX 1060 in a 14-inch laptop

Razer is known as a manufacturer of gaming equipment. However, Razer has been creating a sensation in the laptop range, too. The Razer Blade (2017) is a handy 14-inch laptop with a height of only just under 20 mm. However, hardware components which can usually be found in 15.6-inch and bigger devices work inside: a 45 Watt SoC and the powerful GeForce GTX 1060 (laptop) with GDDR5. In addition, there is a quite good, matte IPS display and certainly fast Wi-Fi and an SSD. This says everything about gaming performance: The Razer Blade (2017) can run all games from 2017 smoothly; even with ultra details.

There are faster gaming laptops as well as less expensive ones out there - but not one of them manages to look as sexy as the Razer Blade.

Important: No FPS throttling occurs in games and the CPU delivers constantly high performance. Hardly any wish remains unfulfilled, since Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.0 are also available. Even the battery life is quite long. Nine hours is noteworthy for such a gaming-capable notebook.

Weaknesses are difficult to find: The Blade gets very loud under load, which is understandable in view of the low space for the cooling system. A card reader is not available and the stable aluminum case is a fingerprint magnet. The latter can be considered a reference in the Windows world. We seldom hold such a high-end case in our hands.

Rest assured that the Blade is a decent gaming laptop as well, but all things considered, the notebook is better suited as a highly mobile companion for creative users with high performance needs.

The competitors can surrender, can't they? The Dell XPS 15 is on par in terms of look and feel, but the Texans deliver lower graphics power (GTX 1050), but a larger SSD (256 GB), and a higher resolution. The MacBook Pro 15 is much more expensive and easily outperformed by GTX 1060 solutions in gaming performance. Acer fills this gap with the 593G and 793G Nitros, i.e. 15-inch and 17-inch laptops. The simple HDD variant of the 15-inch V15 Nitro "only" costs 1,350 Euros (~$1591). Hence, it is 850 Euros (~$1001) cheaper than the Blade with identical processing units. Thus, the Blade remains a laptop for all those who want to own a compact meteor. Creative people might find the optional QHD+ display attractive (see review), which not only features a finer resolution but also a larger color space. In addition, it is more precisely calibrated.

Faster graphics: Dell XPS 15 9560 (i7-7700HQ, UHD)
Editor's Choice Award in April 2017: Dell XPS 15 9560 (UHD)
Editor's Choice Award in April 2017: Dell XPS 15 9560 (UHD)

With exactly the same rating of 88.7%, Dell remains in a top spot of the Top 10 and follows the Razer Blade. Therewith, Apple's MacBook Pro 15 2016 is reached but not overtaken. Apart from a powerful Core i7-7700HQ and a UHD panel, the revised XPS 15 9560 (see review) also features a GeForce GTX 1050. Obviously, gaming is considered first priority.

One major curveball to consider is the GTX 1050 GPU in this latest iteration of the XPS 15. Graphics performance is a significant boost over the GTX 960M in the XPS 15 9550.

However, thanks to 16 GB of RAM and an SSD with 512 GB net capacity, the new XPS 15 is capable of more. Certainly this is also true for the "smaller" XPS 15 9560 variant with 7300HQ and Full HD (see review). The ergonomics of the visually unchanged 15-inch chassis remains adequate despite performance gain. However, this does not mean quiet. The fan is already audible under low and medium load. During gaming, the noise level increases to a loud 47 dB.

The XPS 15 is a very compact 15-inch laptop (Infinity Edge display), which performs well as a professional work device thanks to its excellent display with high color fidelity (almost 100% of AdobeRGB). Apart from the UHD display in our test model, an FHD display is optionally available.

Nonetheless, the 4K UHD SKU has a wider gamut than [...] essentially all other multimedia notebooks we've tested for that matter, including the latest MacBook Pro 15.

Neither in the Cinebench loop nor in the prolonged The Witcher test could we detect the throttling problem of the predecessor in the current entry-level configuration with 7300HQ.

The top list shows that there are currently similarly powerful alternatives in the multimedia segment with the Razer Blade, the MacBook Pro 15, and the Aspire VN7-593G V15 Nitro BE. Acer charges the lowest price. However, its build quality does not reach those of the Dell/Apple/Razer. Apart from the XPS 15, only the MacBook Pro 15 and the Razer Blade offer UHD resolution with 100% of AdobeRGB, when the TFT supporting these is on board. Those on a budget should consider the Aspire. Those who want extremely high quality and can do without UHD should consider the XPS 15 with 7300HQ, which is available from 1,500 Euros (~$1767).

Maximum configuration: Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016 2.9 GHz, 460)
Maximum configuration: Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016 2.9 GHz, 460)

The MacBook Pro 15 2016 (2.9 GHz, 460) (see review) is the first major redesign of the work comet from Apple in a number of years. Unavoidably, the chassis has become significantly slimmer and lighter. It is still one of the best and most high-end laptop cases. The display quality is premium and the huge trackpad works very accurately. As in the MacBook Pro, the Touch Bar is considered important. This small display replaces the function keys, and which functions are assigned to it depends on software and use.

Our review showed that the functionality depends mainly on the software support, but it can actually make the handling rather more complicated in practice.

Our test covers the top model with a Core i7-6920HQ, AMD Radeon Pro 460, 16 GB of RAM, and 1024 GB SSD. It costs just over 4000 Euros (~$4714). As a result, high performance is to be expected and the cooling system can cope with it surprisingly well. The AMD Radeon Pro 460 graphics card increases the performance by a steep 40% compared to the Radeon Pro 450 GPU in the base configuration. In terms of CPU there are no disadvantages.

The Core i7-6920HQ is about 10 to 15% faster than the regular Core i7-6700HQ, but this is also the case for the new entry-level quad-core i7-7700HQ, so you basically pay $300 for an "old" upgrade.

The testers criticized this laptop because of the bugs they encountered. The base configuration is also affected: Problems with Wi-Fi connections to 2.4 GHz networks if USB-C devices are connected, problems with the speakers, if Windows is installed via BootCamp, and image errors of the graphics card in the same mode. However, upcoming and already shipped updates are supposed to fix these problems.

One of the biggest issues is probably the radical change of the port situation. Although 4x Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) make the device quite future-proof, you will need adapters in the foreseeable future.

In this sense, while the MacBook Pro 15 2016 is third in this top list (tied for first, together with the Razer Blade and XPS 15), it does not meet the high claim of a 3000 to 4000-Euro (~$3535 to $4714) laptop. It is a kind of intermediate stage before the chassis will be populated with Kaby Lake processors in the coming year. In the meantime, there is enough time for problems to be solved and Kaby Lake will bring a performance gain. We also had the "smaller sibling" in review, the Apple MacBook Pro 15 2016 (2.6 GHz, 450; i7-6700HQ, Radeon Pro 450, 16 GB of RAM).

Multimedia convertible: HP Spectre x360 15-bl002xx
Multimedia convertible: HP Spectre x360 15-bl002xx

HP quietly updated its performance convertible. We reviewed the SKU Spectre x360 15t-bl100 (here in review). It is shipped with a Core i7-8550U (Kaby Lake Refresh) and GeForce MX150. 

HP left the chassis untouched but updated the hardware with a more powerful Kaby Lake-R CPU and new GeForce entry-level graphics. 

The memory equipment is very generous at 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD storage. Gaming enthusiasts will not be perfectly happy with the MX150, but it is still decent. The GeForce is also the reason for the multimedia classification.

You will immediately notice the high-quality design of the milled aluminum chassis. HP puts a lot of effort into the build quality, which also ensures sturdy hinges and surfaces. The 4K screen is very bright but only covers 64% AdobeRGB. Thunderbolt 3 is included as well, as is an active stylus. The backlit keyboard is easy to type on, but the wide trackpad makes right-clicks a bit tricky. Another advantage is the runtime of 8:30 hours. 

After the hardware-only refresh, the HP Spectre x360 15t remains a solid, well-performing 2-in-1 and it still remains one of the best choices when considering a large convertible.

The huge convertible is not without flaws though. The hinge is not sturdy enough for the heavy lid. The power adapter is very big and heavy, and both USB-C as well as USB-A are just Gen. 1, so basically USB 3.0. Dell's 17-inch Inspiron 17-7773 (here in review, MX150) is an interesting alternative if you are looking for a large convertible.

Best Value Award in May 2017: Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G-5811

Acer's Nitro models are also available in 17-inch form factor. These are available in countless configurations, either with GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060. The prices differ considerably: The difference between the test model with HDD, 7300HQ and 8 GB of RAM and the Aspire V17 Nitro with 7700HQ, 512 GB SSD and 16 GB is 750 Euros (~$883).

The combination of a quad-core Core i5 processor and a GTX 1050 Ti GPU ensures a smooth gaming experience.

Pros are Thunderbolt 3, a free M.2 slot for an SSD and Full HD resolution. The chassis cannot hold a candle to the laptops in the first three places in terms of quality and stability.

The matte IPS panel offers great viewing angles and decent color accuracy.

Acer's Aspire Nitro BE VN7-793G-5811 is suitable for all who are looking for a laptop for work and gaming. Those on a budget should buy the entry-level model with HDD and GTX 1050 Ti. Those who want to play all gaming hits in maximum details and Full HD should select one of the more expensive GTX 1060 variants. Anyway, prospective buyers get a cheaper device in the Acer than in the Razer Blade or Dell XPS 15. It delivers the highest gaming performance for the money.

Compact with 4K: Gigabyte Aero 14-K7

Thin build, long battery runtimes and gaming performance under the hood. Is this possible? Gigabyte says yes and created a jewel with the Aero 15 (see review). The slim performance wizard primarily convinces with balanced hardware (7700HQ, GTX 1060), its slim display bezel, calibrated TFT and Thunderbolt 3 port.

The extremely slim 15-inch laptop (19 mm/~0.75 in) might reach a top place in our Multimedia Top 10 as well as in the mobile Gaming Top 10.

The pro list of our review is long: Apart from design, slim display bezel, low weight and battery runtimes of about seven hours, it brings several other advantages. The 15-inch laptop is silent in Quiet mode, the display is precalibrated, the chassis is stable, and there are NVMe SSDs and a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Overall, the Aero 15 proves to be a worthy rival to the multimedia top dogs the Dell XPS 15, the Razer Blade 2017, and the Acer V15 Nitro.

Apparently, there is not much to complain about. In view of this, the not always reliable touchpad and the slightly weak sound are even more annoying. The sibling Aero 14-K7 (here in review; i7-7700HQ, GTX 1050 Ti, 16 GB, 256 GB) is a compact gamer with a 4K screen.

Buyers will have to forego the highest quality settings. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics core offers too little performance for this.

The 14-K7 waives some gaming performance, but not the 45 W SoC. Positive: The 14-inch Aero 14-K7 does not throttle in our Cinebench Multi loop. You also get very long battery runtimes of nine hours in practice (without gaming) and details like macro keys and Thunderbolt 3. 

The Aero also did a good job as an office device: The device has a very good keyboard and runs from quietly to silently.

Best Value Award in March 2017: Acer Aspire V15 Nitro BE VN7-593G

Is more gaming performance enough in order to continue the success of the Skylake predecessor? With the Aspire VN7-593G-73HP V15 Nitro BE (see review) Acer sticks to its concept consisting of a relatively simple chassis with exquisite, powerful components.

Acer again proves its skills and creates a 15-inch machine that is just as suitable for gaming as for home entertainment or work. But first things first.

Intel Core i7-7700HQ and GeForce GTX 1060 (laptop) power gaming. The HDD slightly slows down the execution, but it is not a disadvantage for gaming. The Aspire V15 Nitro BE is quite quiet during normal use, but it gets loud during gaming and prolonged load. The matte, contrast-rich IPS display cannot reach the Dell XPS 15's, however it also does not have to with its Full HD resolution. The speakers are powerful and the excellent microphone ensures premium recordings.

The in some places unstable casing, despite a new aluminum finish, remains. In return, it has never been easier to replace components.

The input devices, including keyboard light, are well made and external devices can be connected via USB Type-C 3.1 with Thunderbolt 3. Maintenance of components got significantly easier in comparison to the predecessor.

While the V15 hardly produces noise in idle mode, it is quite loud during games. The very good speakers with high and low pitches can easily drown this out, though.

This should not occur: The poor webcam images are not appealing and the card reader for SD cards is terribly slow. In addition, there are only two RAM slots, which are already used in the 8 GB variant. Gaming enthusiasts should definitely consider the Asus ROG Strix GL502VM as an alternative. Otherwise, this top list does not list real alternatives, since the devices here only use GTX 950M/960M and GTX 1050 cards. The Razer Blade (2017) is different, but its steep price might put many buyers off.

Not for gamers: Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G

The Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G-80L (here in review) differs from the other multimedia devices in this list by its "small" GPU. The price of about 1000 Euros (~$1178) is similar to the V15 Nitro (P8), which is equipped with a GTX 1060 GPU. However, the Aspire 5 A517 is a 17-inch system!

Above all, the Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G wins one over with very good CPU performance while consuming (relatively) little energy. Furthermore, with the Nvidia GeForce MX150, the Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G offers an entry-level graphics card, which can run a wide range of games quite well.

If you are not placing a lot of attention into saving power, an SSD, and the latest chipset, you should also consider the other attractively priced 17-inch system in this ranking: The Aspire Nitro BE VN7-793G-5811 (i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 Ti) provides more gaming performance than the Aspire 5 A517 with the MX150.

The Intel Core i7-8550U has enough performance reserves so as not to become a piece of obsolete hardware in the near future. 

You should consider the Aspire A5 A517 when gaming is not your priority, but you want a modern processor (four cores), decent runtimes (more than six hours), SSD storage, low noise emissions and low temperatures as well as an optical drive.

Best Value Award in May 2017: Aspire VX5-591G-75C4

The Aspire VX5-591G-75C4, also called VX15, is the small climber between the Aspire E series and the Nitro models. The test model costs 1,000 Euros (~$1178) and features a Core i7-7700HQ, yet it has no SSD. As in the XPS15, it comes with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which goes well with the other components and uses GDDR5.

Unspectacular but rock-solid - Acer has done a good job with its new VX5-591G-75C4.

Acer uses an appealing, partly lit chassis, which looks nice, but it falls behind its Nitro colleagues and the models in the top places in terms of quality.

Apart from some inaccurate gaps and a few, marginally protruding edges, the build of the solid-looking casing makes an impeccable impression that corresponds to its price.

Those who are looking for a not too expensive laptop with 45 Watt SoC and mid-range gaming performance should take a closer look at the Aspire VX5-591G. The price of the 15-incher is even slightly more appealing than its Nitro BE VN7-793G-5811 sibling's, which, however, is a 17-inch laptop. Hence, we assigned it the second Best Value Award in May 2017.
