Best 16GB RAM Laptops

When we receive questions regarding which laptop to purchase, often we recommend that 8GB RAM should suffice, irrespective of the processor or brand the person is buying. However, for those who plan to use their laptops for any kind of content creation, coding, prototyping or even the people who work with large datasets on a day-to-day basis, a laptop with 16GB RAM is an absolute necessity. Programs like Adobe Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve and even Excel and PowerPoint can really sink their teeth into the RAM, occupying most of it, if not all. Just open up a few tabs of Chrome or even FireFox and see the RAM consumption shoot up. So if you need a system that can keep up with your demanding needs, get one with 16GB of RAM minimum. In case you’re confused about which ones to go for, here’s a handy list of our top 10 recommended laptops with 16GB RAM. Although the prices of the products mentioned in the list given below have been updated as of 1st Mar 2021, the list itself may have changed since it was last published due to the launch of new products in the market since then.

HP SPECTRE X360 (2019)

HP's Spectre x360 has been one of the best (and costliest) touchscreen laptops in the market for quite a few years now and it is not going to stop now. The touchscreen panel on the device is responsive and easy to use, while the HP Pen stylus that accompanies it is lightweight and efficient. The 2019 model enjoys a slightly longer batter life compared to the 2018 model, a privacy guard for the display, and a refreshed exterior design. It's slim, lightweight, and sharp.
