The Best Notebooks with the Best Displays

June 2021 Update. Is the display the most important part of a notebook, tablet, or convertible for you and does it play a leading role in your purchasing decision? Our overview of the best displays in current notebooks as reviewed by Notebookcheck might be helpful for you.

As part of our tests, we put much effort into analyzing the displays on our devices of all kinds and sizes. The results have a considerable impact on our total rating. The display has to convince in many aspects for a top display rating. The following criteria influence it: average brightness, distribution of brightness, black value, contrast, color precision in the Calman Colorchecker and Grayscale test (sRGB), covered color space, viewing angles, PWM, response time, level of adverse effects of clouding and glare and fineness of the resolution.

The following table shows an overview of the most important features and measured values of the 50 best displays (rated "Very Good" >88%) used in laptops and convertibles reviewed by Notebookcheck in the last 12 months (or still available). Due to the only recently introduced measurements on the part of PWM and Response Times, these values are not available for older models. The value "0" in the PWM measurement means that we could not determine any PWM. The table can be limited via the search function, for example "Acer" or "OLED". The list is updated automatically every day.
