The Best Business Notebooks

January 2023 update. Designed for the tough requirements of everyday business needs in the office and on the road business notebooks are the backbone of every modern business. Their key features include a robust case, high-quality input devices, and a good balance between battery life and performance.

With prices mostly significantly above $1,000 business notebooks tend to offer a lot. However, business customers also tend to ask for quite a lot in return. Long-lasting and robust cases, a wide variety of safety features, top-of-the-line communication modules, and last but not least a high level of performance paired with a low level of emissions. And to make matters worse, professional users have the habit of frequently asking for extended warranties and service options.

Given the often significantly longer life cycles of business notebooks, particularly in regard to the long-term availability of spare parts, we have extended the time frame for this category to at least 12 months or more. Please consider the following top lists when making a decision as well:

Editors' Comments

1st – HP Elite Dragonfly G3

HP Elite Dragonfly G3
HP Elite Dragonfly G3

Finally - after last year's HP Elite Dragonfly G2 still relied on 16:9 displays, HP goes a different way with the new model. HP has even opted for 3:2 instead of the more common 16:10. We like that, just like the pleasant input devices, the rich connectivity for such a light notebook, and the 5 megapixel webcam. We are less enthusiastic about the glossy display surface, the limited performance and the rather unstable display lid. Nevertheless, the HP Elite Dragonfly achieved a very good score of 91 percent.

The Dragonfly G3 looks great and feels even better during use. However, since the HP laptop's TDP targets are relatively low, you should not expect record-breaking CPU performance.

The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 with i5-1235U costs around $1,850 on Amazon (affiliate link).

2nd – Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3
Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 is positioned below the X1 Carbon as a "premium T-ThinkPad." In some vintages of the thinner T series, it was even slightly superior to its X1 counterpart - and that's once again the case with the 2022 models. Although the X1 Carbon G10 has the edge in some aspects like the speakers and the weight, the T14s G3 AMD wins overall due to the much more efficient AMD CPUs.

With Ryzen 6000, the fan of the ThinkPad T14s G3 runs very quietly even under load and the laptop delivers good battery runtimes. In combination with the very good performance as well as the business suitable platform, the T14s G3 is a very good choice as a productive system.

Compact, robust, enduring, fast - the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 AMD has many positive attributes.

The device is sold among others through Lenovo’s own webstore. Prices start at around $985 and a configurator is once again available.

3rd – Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 1

Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 1

The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 G1 is a complete newcomer to our business top list - after all, it is not only the first time that the ThinkPad Z13 is part of the list, but also the ThinkPad Z series itself has made it into our ranking for the first time. With its rating in the very good range, it immediately takes a top position in the list.

This is despite the fact that it has rather limited connectivity for a business laptop. On the other hand, the ThinkPad Z13 has many other qualities, such as the very good touchpad, the extremely high-quality case and the AMD CPUs that exclusively power this new platform - there is no room for Intel here. The AMD processors not only ensure high performance in a compact case, but also excellent battery life.

Premium quality plus AMD - the result is called the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 G1 with AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U is available on Amazon from around $2,055.

4th – HP Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3

HP Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3
HP Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3

The HP Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3 is a special quick-change artist: it is a laptop-tablet hybrid with a hinge ala Surface Laptop Studio, where the screen lies on the keyboard. However, it is not HP's first laptop with this design; the predecessor with the same name already had such a hinge. However, there is one big difference between the new model and the older variants: The new Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3 relies on an Intel processor instead of an ARM chip.

This results in a much better performance than the predecessor, which significantly increases its practicality as a business laptop. The HP Folio has a great 3:2 screen, good input devices, it is maintainable and comes with an eight megapixel webcam as well as a stylus in the box. One weak point is the few ports, and it is also comparatively heavy.

The design of the Dragonfly Folio G3 is too important. The Dragonfly does offer unique aesthetics, but you get more ports on the slimmer EliteBooks and are more flexible as a result.

The base configuration of the Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3 with i7, 512 GB SSD and 16 GB RAM costs around $2,379 on HP's official store.

5th – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10

Ten years of Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon - the result of this decade of laptop development is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10. In the tenth year, Lenovo doesn't make any big changes, the focus is on the upgrade to the 12th generation of Intel Core i CPUs, Intel Alder-Lake.

This also shows the weak point of the X1 series at the same time, because it seems to be chained to Intel by Lenovo, there is no AMD model. Alder-Lake does provide a considerable increase in performance, but these CPUs run too hot in the long run to retrieve the performance under permanent load. In addition, the battery life is lower than that of the predecessor. The fact that it still manages such a good score is due to the other qualities of the X1 Carbon, such as the very light case, the great input devices and the equipment. Lenovo has also clearly improved the webcam compared to the predecessor.

Alder-Lake P28 without long-term effect: The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G10 would need a stronger cooling.

The base configuration of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G10 costs about $1,280 on Lenovo's online store.

6th – Dell Latitude 7420

Dell Latitude 7420

Dell’s Latitude 7000-series is equivalent ot Lenovo’s T-series and HP’s EliteBook 800-series. Dell’s high-end enterprise laptops are available in two sizes with either a 13.3 or a 14-inch display. The larger Dell Latitude 7420  secured a very good rating of 90 % in our review.

Its strengths include a long battery life a robust metal case with carbon-fiber lid, as well as optional WWAN. In addition, the device remains very cool and comparatively quiet overall. In return, its CPU performance suffered and failed to meet our expectations. We also missed the track point device and were not particularly impressed by the soldered RAM.

Moderate and well-balanced performance but no long-term load. Dell’s Latitude is made for low to moderately demanding office tasks.

The device can be purchased either directly through Dell or through the usual retail channels, such as Amazon. Retail prices start at $1,300 for the Core i5 SKU.

What Lenovo's X1 series is Dell's Latitude 9000. The Dell Latitude 9430 2-in-1 is the equivalent of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7, it is a high-quality convertible with a foldable screen. Compared to the ThinkPad, the Dell Latitude 9430 2-in-1 is slightly more compact and thinner, it has a higher-resolution display and a slightly larger battery. In combination with the Alder Lake U processor, this leads to a better battery life compared to the competition. As an innovation compared to its predecessor, the Latitude 9420, the Latitude 9430 2-in-1 now has a webcam with two megapixel resolution as standard, and nothing has changed in the rich selection of ports.

The Latitude 9430 2-in-1 is a convertible for demanding users who can use the potential of the Intel 12th Gen. CPU in a suitable scenario.

Currently, the Dell Latitude 9430 2-in-1 costs around $2,980 on Amazon.

8th – Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 3

Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 3

A classic among classics - the ThinkPad X series has been around for over 20 years and the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 G3 is the latest model. It is optionally equipped with AMD Ryzen 6000 or Intel Alder-Lake, whereby we tested the Intel version. This one delivers a good battery life and a good performance, although it is hardly better than the predecessor especially under permanent load. The weaknesses and strengths of the X13 G2 basically remain, since it is a pure platform update.

For such a compact device, the ThinkPad X13 G3 primarily offers a lot in terms of connectivity. Fast WLAN 6E and an LTE modem ensure a permanent connection to the Internet. The 16:10 display is strong and the performance of the ultrabook is also adequate.

The device is available on Lenovo’s own webstore for around $1,169.

9th – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7 is the Alder Lake successor of the predecessor X1 Yoga Gen 6. The design remains almost the same, including very good ThinkPad input devices and aluminum case, but inside there is a switch to the much more powerful Alder Lake P series. The performance increases significantly as a result, but the battery life suffers from the higher consumption.

Another point of criticism for the X1 Yoga Gen 7: The panel is not quite as bright as in the predecessor, and the consumer rivals are also ahead here. At least there is a better webcam, and the X1 Yoga G7 is still a very good business convertible with great features - even if it is not quite as good as the predecessor.

All in all, the 7th generation ThinkPad X1 Yoga is still a very good business convertible, but it becomes more difficult to justify the high price in view of the competition.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7 is now available on Lenovo's webstore starting from $1,239.

10th – Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip

Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip

Asus may not be known for its business laptops but the Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip nevertheless managed to make our top 10 list. Priced at 2,500 Euros it is one of the more expensive devices and attempts to take the likes of other business convertibles, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6, head-on.

However, it failed to achieve the latter’s score by some margin. Asus’s business laptops offers quite a few perks, such as a good keyboard, long battery life, an optional stylus, 5G, good connectivity, and a 16:10 display. Of particular note is its expandable RAM, a feature seldom to be found these days among its immediate competitors. On the flip side it only supports single-channel RAM, and its fan was a bit louder than we would have expected.

The Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip is a well-rounded 2-in-1 premium business convertible.

The Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip is currently not available in North America.

11th – Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1

Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1
Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1

The Lenovo ThinkPad T16 is the first business laptop with a 16-inch display to make it into our best list. It is the largest model of the ThinkPad T-series so far. The fact that it is not extremely heavy is probably due to its carbon fiber and magnesium construction. In general, the ThinkPad T16 is a comparatively mobile notebook, also thanks to the large 86 watt-hour battery. Together with the good performance, the matte, bright energy-saving display and the still very good ThinkPad input devices, the ThinkPad T16 is a great work device. One weakness: The Intel P28 processor is throttled a bit with a TDP of 20 watts. It is also a shame that Lenovo now soldered so many components in the T-series.

Lenovo offers a solid business notebook with its ThinkPad T16 G1 with a very long battery life, bright low-power 16:10 display and low emissions. However, the CPU's throttling can be a nuisance outside of office tasks.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1 with i7-1260P costs around $1,380 on Amazon US (affiliate link).

12th – HP EliteBook 835 G9

HP EliteBook 835 G9

Along with Lenovo, HP is one of the manufacturers that rely heavily on AMD processors in the business series. The HP EliteBook 835 G9 is HP's smallest enterprise model with a Ryzen 6000. With its 13.3-inch display, it is primarily intended for travelers who are often on the go with their laptop. Matching this, the HP EliteBook 835 G9 has one big strength: The screen is extremely bright.

In combination with the very good equipment with USB4 and LTE, the strong performance, very good webcam, long battery life and comfortable keyboard, the HP EliteBook 835 G9 is an excellent choice for business travelers. Relevant weaknesses: 5G is not an option, the RAM is also soldered, and the SureView feature severely limits the viewing angle stability of the display even when switched off.

HP presents a successful business notebook with the EliteBook 835 G9.

The HP EliteBook 835 G9 is configurable in the US via HP's official website, starting at $1,629.00.

The Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 is the latest addition to the Latitude 9000 series, Dell's premium range for business customers. As the name suggests, the Latitude 9330 2-in-1 is a convertible that folds down into a tablet. The Dell laptop is very compact, robust and has a large trackpad at the same time. It is also easy to maintain and optionally offers 5G. One of the weak points is the limited connectivity, as Dell does without USB A or HDMI and relies exclusively on USB C. In addition, the fan runs comparatively loud and at a high frequency.

Despite some average features, the Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 is our top recommendation among business convertibles that will certainly last for several years.

Dell is currently shipping the Latitude 9330 2-in-1 starting at $2,065.
