  • Published on:  1/10/2019
  • CES 2019 was full of laptops, everything from GeForce RTX-equipped thin gaming laptops to AMD-powered Chromebooks to desktop replacements with swappable CPUs. A lot looked like last year’s bunch, but there were more than a few interesting exceptions. To cut through the deluge of announcements, we’ve rounded up what we think are the best laptops from CES so you can get a look at the tech that’s arriving this year.

  • Bob Martin (Mar 14, 2019)

    Those who brough Microsoft surfaces. They start to break down after a year ir two and tgere us no way to repair them.

    I'm still using a 6 year old asus laptop. I just finnaly upgraded to the 2018 dell xps. I dont see why a normal person cant get 4 years out of a laptop at least. Maybe 2 or 3 if your doing really performance demanding work like 3D modeling.

  • André Goersch (Jan 10, 2019)

    OMG dude, how many times do you have to make the exact same point? We get it, this year's model is better but not a huge upgrade from last year's model. You don't have to repeat the sentence for every single one of the 20 laptops you are showing.

    I just wasted 6:42 minutes of my life.....

  • Amer Bashar thank u i just wasted 15 seconds

  • Michael McFarland (Jan 10, 2019)

    I feel like I'm in a staring contest with the presenter

  • Thunderhippoable (Jan 29, 2019)

    Let's split up, look for survivors and get out of here.

  • Thot Slayer (Jan 11, 2019)

    Yeah he’s creeping me out @-@

  • Berat Şen (Jan 10, 2019)

    Don’t get him wrong you guys. This year’s model is great but it’s just not a big upgrade.

  • NTH THN (Jan 21, 2019)

    Wait what did he say again?

  • Muhammad ms (Jan 15, 2019)

    from any comment on this platform, i agree with this one :) They're not make sense about the substantial information that his delivered. CMIIW

  • rr M (Jan 10, 2019)

    take shot every time he says "not a huge upgrade" I dare you

  • Dallas the Great (Feb 17, 2019)

    I would die from an overdose.

  • Bilal Sheikh (Jan 10, 2019)

    I don't agree at all with you. 240Hz laptops, OLED display laptops, laptops with user replacable CPU and GPU. The ROG Mothership is a totally new type of gaming desktop replacement. What else do you want? The one thing that wasn't new was the design. But even that was refined with ultra thin bezels.

  • El Mahdi Ettaleb (Jan 29, 2019)

    Massively better chipset/cpu/gpu, like the previous years. Traditional CPU/GPU architectures are stagnating, and microsoft, qualcomm, apple, ARM and AMD are investing in APUs. Maybe the future's APUs?

  • Neil Rathod (Jan 10, 2019)

    This is not a review, it is one comment repeated over and over

  • Friendly T-60 armor (Jan 10, 2019)

    Good video but again But againBut againBut againBut againBut againBut again

  • Pierangelo Munoz (Jan 10, 2019)

    The camera on top is a huge update to me....

  • Grandmaster Funk (6 days ago)

    +Marcus Robledo Why? Chin/nostril cams are an awful implementation.

  • Marcus Robledo (Jan 11, 2019)

    It isnt for many people. I wish everyone would adopt matebook webcam idea
