Editor's Choice Award in June 2018: Dell XPS 15 2018 9570

Dell's 2018 XPS 15 (here in review) is an even better laptop than before. It features a modern Intel Core i5-8300H including the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 as well as the discreet Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050. Emissions, runtimes, and ports have been improved and result in a very good rating in combination with the fast processor.

The Dell XPS 15 is a very good all-rounder both for work and gaming without being too expensive.

The combination of the fast quad-core processor and the GeForce GTX 1050 ensures decent gaming capabilities. The good access to the components and a matte screen with good contrast and high color gamut are other advantages. Die speakers inside the high quality chassis are convincing and provide good sound quality.

We also reviewed the XPS 15 with the faster Core i7-8750H and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q. The overall rating of 90 % is a bit lower compared to the entry-level SKU. The supposedly faster processor cannot utilize its full performance potential and the UHD panel consumes a lot of power, which costs more points.

The additional CPU and GPU performance is a slight advantage over the entry-level SKU, but the optional 4K panel prevents a better rating due to some drawbacks.

2nd - Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a very well-equipped notebook for many different usage scenarios. After the high-end SKU, we also reviewed the entry-level model and it managed a better score of 92 %. This situation is similar to the Dell XPS 15.

You have the choice when it comes to the display: Better picture quality or matte screen with longer battery runtime: The 1080p panel consumes less power, so the stamina is superior compared to the 4K HDR SKU.

Cheaper is better when it comes to the ThinkPad X1 Extreme and Lenovo's entry-level SKU convinced us.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a multimedia laptop with excellent performance figures and a lot of features. It combines multiple devices, because you can use it as your daily business device and the use the CPU/GPU performance to play some games after work.

We liked the 4K panel with HDR support as well as the high-quality chassis and the excellent input devices. The CPU performance is very good and the system noise is very adequate during everyday tasks.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a successful 15.6-inch multimedia laptop with excellent CPU performance and the best keyboard you can currently get in the mobile segment.

The CPU performance is unfortunately reduced on battery power. The battery runtime of the X1 Extreme is not great, either, and WWAN is not available at all.

All in all, Lenovo still offers a very good 15.6-inch notebook, which can utilize the full performance of the i7-8750H under load.

3rd - Apple MacBook Pro 15 2018

Apple's MacBook Pro 15 2018 now with six cores

The 2018 MacBook Pro (here in review) offers some new features, but still not the expected performance bump. Apple offers the MacBook Pro 15 with a 6-core CPU for the first time and also switches to DDR4 memory. However, the full performance cannot be maintained for long, so the performance gains are limited compared to the 2017 MacBook Pro.

Overall, Apple's multimedia laptop comes with the excellent chassis we are familiar with. The panel is very bright and only the reflective surface causes criticism. The MacBook also has powerful speakers and a fast WLAN module. We also like the huge trackpad, which is very precise and improves the controls.

We have to criticize Apple for the power adapter, which is insufficient. It caused some battery drainage during our stress test, and the PSU prevented better CPU/GPU performance. The device is comparatively quiet with light workloads, but the fans are clearly audible under load. Apple does not change the ports, either. You still get four Thunderbolt 3 ports with the full bandwidth, but that's it. External peripherals will often require adapters.

The MacBook Pro 15 unfortunately suffers from cooling issues, which affects the processor performance. It is therefore not the best choice for every user.

4th - MSI PS63 Modern

Slim like an Ultrabook - MSI PS63 Modern

The MSI PS63 (here in review) has advantages in terms of mobility, ergonomics, and maintenance. The design is not bad, either, because MSI packs all the hardware into a sophisticated chassis made of aluminum.

The Intel Core i7-8565U is a 15W SoC, and the Turbo utilization is limited. The dedicated GeForce GTX 1050 GPU on the other hand runs at the full speed during our stress test.

The battery runtime is very long with about 11.5 hours in our WLAN test.

The display looks good on paper, because Asus promises TrueColor, which means an almost full sRGB gamut. Our measurements do not support this claim, and the luminance of just 262 nits on average is clearly behind expectations, too.

The MSI PS63 is a very slim and enduring laptop if you do not need the power of a 45W processor.

5th - HP EliteBook 1050 G1

HP's EliteBook 1050 G1 (here in review) is a completely new series without a direct predecessor. The 1050 G1 is a successful multimedia laptop with a good build quality. There is not much criticism for the input devices, either. The glass touchpad is comfortable and the keyboard is not perfect, but still good overall.

HP uses a matte 4K panel with good brightness, which is hard to find in this segment.

It seems HP wanted a bit too much with the EliteBook 1050 G1, because you should expect a bit more for the price tag. The business-multimedia laptop is just not as good as the Dell XPS 15.

All in all, the HP EliteBook 1050 G1 gets a very good score and offers many useful features.

The MSI P65 9SF Creator convinced with very good performance results during our review. The Intel Core i9-9880H is very fast and the multimedia device is also a good gaming laptop thanks to the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q.

The device is primarily designed for content creators who do not want to compromise on performance and ensure a fast system when they use applications like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere. 

The device appears very noble, but the stability could have been better. In return, however, the MSI P65 9SF Creator convinces with its low weight as well as the compact chassis. We liked the 144 Hz panel and could not detect PWM or clouding. The limited maintenance is unfortunate, just like the single storage slot.

The MSI P65 9SF combines multiple devices. During the day, you can easily use the subtle and stylish device for work, but the notebook can also handle modern games in 4k in your free time.

7th – Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE with two displays

The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 offers a more than decent connectivity. Its main highlight is certainly the 5.5-inch touchpad that doubles as an IPS display, along with the good-looking high-quality case.

In regard to ports we were particularly impressed by the two Thunderbolt 3 ports but would have preferred a full-sized SD card reader instead of the included micro SD card reader.

Another highlight was the UX580GE’s 4K UHD touchscreen that completely covered the AdobeRGB color space and showed absolutely no signs of PWM flickering whatsoever.

In theory, performance should be more than adequate thanks to an Intel Core i9-8950HK and a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. In reality, the CPU was unable to achieve or even maintain its full clock speed. Consequently, the ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE was outperformed by the Asus Chimera G703GI in the Cinebench R15 multi-thread test (1,312 vs. 1,074 points). The dedicated GPU performed below average as well and thus failed to meet our expectations.

Two displays can be an advantage, and Asus has tried to incorporate this into the ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE. The concept was somewhat similar to Apple’s Touch Bar, and turned out to be particularly useful for multimedia content. In reality it was very taxing to keep switching back and forth between the two screens. As a result of the thick matte cover that was required to improve the touchpads smoothness and pointing capabilities text was not as crisp as expected.

Battery life was definitely a downside – similarly priced devices, such as for example the Dell XPS 15 2018, easily lasted twice as long on a single charge.

The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE is a nifty multimedia device with an excellent display and many useful features.

Performance-wise the Core i9-8950HK turned out to be somewhat of a disappointment, which is why we would recommend getting the Core i7-8750H model instead. The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 GU501GM performed about as fast as our ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE review unit.

8th - Lenovo Ideapad 720S

The Lenovo Ideapad 720S with a good display and fast SSD
The Lenovo Ideapad 720S with a good display and fast SSD

The Lenovo IdeaPad 720S (here in review) offers a solid list of components, but the Intel Core i7-7700HQ is a bit slowed down by the reduced 35-Watt TDP, so the cooling solution can manage the heat. Our review, however, shows that this still does not work all the time and massive throttling during the stress test results in low clock rates. We cannot quite understand why Lenovo does not implement a dedicated video output on a multimedia laptop. The Type-C port at least supports Thunderbolt, so you can use adapters to attach external displays.
The design of the Lenovo Ideapad 720S is good, which can also be said for the display. It is not only bright and provides a high contrast ratio, but the color are also accurate out of the box. A fast SSD, good battery runtimes, and quiet fan noise cannot compensate for the massive thermal issues under load though. The slightly clocked down Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Max Q version) cannot maintain its clocks while gaming, either. 

The Lenovo Ideapad 720S is a visually appealing multimedia laptop, but the insufficient cooling performance under load prevents a better rating.

The Asus ZenBook 15 UX533FD (here in review) combines a modern Whiskey Lake processor and a GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q in a nice chassis. Overall, the performance of the Intel Core i7-8565U is above the average of competitors. There are no major drawbacks during the review, but you have to live with the very glossy screen when you get the Asus ZenBook 15 UX533FD.

The Asus ZenBook 15 UX533FD is a nice multimedia device, which also works as a gaming laptop. You do not have to waive long battery runtimes, either.

All in all, the Asus ZenBook 15 UX533FD convinces with good performance figures, long runtimes, and good fan as well as thermal management. Thanks to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q, the device can also handle games.

Das Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G - a successful all-rounder

Acer's Aspire 5 A515-52G is a 15-inch multimedia laptop with the Nvidia GeForce MX250. For about 1100 Euros, you also get a fast Intel Core i7-8565U, 16 GB RAM as well as a hybrid storage system consisting of SSD & HDD.

All the hardware is inside a slim and comparatively light chassis, which looks very modern thanks to its slim bezels. The Nvidia GeForce MX250 in combination with the Whiskey Lake CPU is sufficient for smooth gameplay in most titles. However, you should reduce the resolution and the details.

The device does not lack storage, because you get a total of 1.5 TB. The operating system is stored on the fast NVMe-SSD, which results in a very responsive system.

The Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G is a good multimedia device with a modern design and a fast CPU. Nvidia's GeForce MX250 alone, however, is no reason to buy the laptop.

As it is so often the case, we criticize the screen brightness, and this is also the case for our test sample of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G. Still, it has a matte surface and wide viewing angles thanks to the IPS technology.
