Top 3 Laptop Brands of 2012

The top 3 laptop brands of 2013 will probably not surprise everyone but a lot of the competition has shifted. Laptop brands such as Dell and Sony have fallen slowly behind other new competitors. The top laptop brand of 2013 still remains in the hands of Apple, which shows no signs of slowing down even after the death of its CEO, Steve Jobs, last year. 2013 has already been shown to be the year where laptops are not only faster, but sleeker and more sophisticated in terms of design.

Below, I have taken the time to analyze each brand, looking at the best laptops they have to offer to consumers for 2013. I have judged each brand by the quality, design, speed, durability and portability of their laptops.

Apple MacBook Pro 13.3-Inch

Price: $1,129.00

1. The Apple MacBook Pro has long dominated the laptop market as reigning champion, and 2012 is no different. The MacBook Pro still retains the best design of any laptops out there with its sleek silver polish and minimalistic design. Each MacBook Pro comes equipped with Mac OS X, the most advanced operating system in the world, which contains over 250 features that brilliantly organizes your apps and icons and allows for a beautifully smooth experience. The MacBook Pro 13.3 inche comes with 2.4 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 Processor, 500 GB Hard Drive, LED-backlit Display and 7 Hour Battery Life.

Samsung Series 3 12.5-Inch

Price: $559.99

2. Samsung is a global company headquartered in South Korea that has long dominated the cell phone and flat screen television industries. Now, in 2012, they have started to make a name for themselves in the laptop market with their new Samsung Series 3 that come preinstalled with Microsoft Windows 7. The 12.5 inch Samsung Series 3 is light, thin and fast. It comes with 4 GB of RAM, LED Backlit display and 2.30 GHz Intel Core. This is the perfect laptop for college students, businesspeople as well as stay at home moms. The design is the best I’ve seen so far in a non-apple laptop, and Samsung definitely went the extra mile in giving this machine a sleek and clean look.

HP ENVY 14 14.5-inch

Price: $1,069.98

3. After facing a downward trend, Hewlett-Packard (HP) bounced back in 2011 and is poised to keep getting better throughout 2013. They have placed a greater emphasis on design and have recently churned out beautiful laptops. They have even been able to create their own HP TouchPad, which has been a formidable competitor to the Apple Ipad. With the release of their newly amped up Envy 14, HP has improved tremendously. The Envy 14 comes in two colors, black and silver, and in my opinion is the best bang for your buck. The Envy 14 is priced at slightly below $850 and is PC’s answer to the MacBook Pro. If you are a diehard PC fan and are turned off by using a Apple MacBook Pro, I would purchase the Envy 14 without hesitation. It comes with Intel Core i5-480M Processor, 6GB DDR3 System Memory, 750GB Hard Drive, 14.5″ diagonal High-Definition LED Display and Radeon HD 5650.

You can’t really go wrong with the laptops mentioned above. These top 3 laptop brands of 2013 bring something new to the table and will continue to thrive for many years to come.
