Powered by a 10-Core CPU and a ridiculous 32-Core GPU, the MacBook Pro with the M1 Max chip is a beast by every possible metric. Do not be fooled by its slender appearance because it is not a thin and light machine. Weighing in around 2.0kg, the Apple 16-Inch MacBook Pro M1 Max packs in power and thermals capable of delivering blistering performance in every possible task.

4. APPLE MACBOOK AIR M1

  • iOS 10.14 Mojave OS
  • 13.3" (2560 x 1600) Display
  • 8-core CPU | NA Processor
  • 256 GB SSD/8 GB DDR4 Memory

If someone asks you what are the best laptops to buy in terms of price and performance ratio then the Apple MacBook Air should be your recommendation. It is the world's most popular and loved thin and light laptop for many years. This laurel has been achieved thanks to its reliable performance for day-to-day tasks while delivering class-leading battery life. Well, last year, Apple made the MacBook Air even better by throwing in its M1 chip inside. Now, the MacBook Air powered by the M1 chip is just as powerful as the MacBook Pro 13-inch that's powered by the M1 chip. In fact, it's even comparable to the 16-inch MacBook Pro that's powered by the Intel chip.

Apple has completely replaced the older MacBooks with these newer ones that are powered by its M1 chip. With a starting price of Rs 92,900, they're not that expensive either and we think it's the best MacBook for most people right now.

This particular laptop was also the recipient of the Digit Zero 1 award in the thin and light category and rightly so. It is powered by a powerful Intel 11th Gen Core i7 CPU based on Intel’s EVO platform providing it with great battery life and efficiency. The Intel chip also comes with built-in Iris XE graphics which is enough to do some light gaming. Additionally, the thin and light became one of the best laptops launched this year thanks to a superb combination of keyboard and the trackpad. They feel amazing to use and enhance your productivity in every way. Furthermore, the ultra-lightweight of 997g makes the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon one of the best laptops you can buy. Needless to say, Lenovo is a good laptop brand as well.

If you’re thinking what are the best laptops to buy in the thing and light segment then look no further than the ExpertBook B9400. It's ASUS' flagship ultrabook and it's said to be the world's lightest 14-inch business laptop. It's based on Intel's EVO platform which means they are very reliable for day-to-day workloads with snappy performance. Overall, in terms of design and features, ASUS is a good laptop brand.

What we really like about the ExpertBook B9400 is the fact that it comes with plenty of ports despite its small form factor. It even has a really good keyboard and an oversized touchpad that also doubles up as a Numpad. You can read our full review of the ExpertBook B9400 right here to learn more about the laptop.

  • 15.6" (1920 X 1080) Display
  • AMD Ryzen 7 Octa Core-5800H | 3.2 GHz Processor
  • 256 GB SSD/16 GB DDR4 Memory

The Acer Nitro 5 series is available in a variety of configurations. However, this particular variant was our pick for the best Mid-range gaming laptop for the Digit Zero 1 awards 2021. The laptop also won the Best Buy award as well for its superbly high price to performance ratio. It is powered by a Ryzen 7 5800H Octa-core CPU, an RTX 3060 GPU with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM, 16 GB DDR4 memory and a QHD screen with a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The laptop is capable of running modern titles such as AC Valhalla at 1440p resolution in high settings at around 60FPS. The laptop is supremely capable when it comes to productivity as well thanks to its Quad-HD display which is fairly colour accurate as well. On the list of “what are the best laptops to buy?” the Acer Nitro 5 easily scores a spot.

8. ACER ASPIRE 7 GAMING

  • Windows 10 Home OS
  • 15.6" (1920 x 1080) Display
  • AMD Ryzen™ 5-5500U hexa-core | NA Processor
  • 512 GB SSD/8 GBGB DDR4 Memory

Finding a really good and reliable laptop on a tight budget is quite a task but we have a very good option. If you can't spend more than Rs 60,000 on a laptop, then we suggest you go for the Acer Aspire 7 gaming laptop. It is powered by the Ryzen 5 5500U chip and comes with enough RAM and storage for pumping out a solid performance.

The Acer Aspire 7 gaming laptop truly excels in the battery life department. It managed to last longer than most other gaming laptops in its class which is quite impressive considering its price. The only complaint we had with the laptop was the fact that it only had a 60Hz display but it's not exactly a deal-breaker considering how much you are paying for it.

Pros
  • Understated design
  • Great performance with AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
  • Excellent battery life
  • Good port selection
Cons
  • Highly uncalibrated display
  • The speakers could have been better

9. MSI PULSE GL66

  • Windows 10 Home OS
  • 15.6" (1920x1080) Display
  • 11th Gen. Intel® Core™ i7 | NA Processor
  • 1 TB SSD/16 GB DDR4 Memory

MSI's new Pulse GL66 gaming laptop comes with one of the new Intel H45 processors and packs an RTX 3060 GPU for gaming. We've already reviewed this laptop and we think it's one of the best gaming laptops out there right now that hits the sweet spot for 1080p without burning a huge hole in your pocket. But what we don't like about this particular laptop is that it doesn't have an SD card reader and there's no ThunderBbolt 4 support as well. So, just keep that in mind. If you’re wondering what are the best laptops to buy in the gaming segment then do give Pulse GL66 a try because MSI is a good laptop brand.

Pros
  • Good design & build quality
  • Solid performance for 1080p gaming
  • Intel H45 Core i7 performs well
  • Two SODIMM slots, two M.2 PCIe x4 slot
Cons
  • Runs a little hot & loud
  • Average battery life
  • No SD Card Reader or Thunderbolt 4

10. ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS G14

  • Windows 10 Home OS
  • 14" (1920 x 1080) Display
  • AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen 9 | 3.3 GHz Processor
  • 1 TB SSD/16 GB DDR4 Memory

Want a thin and light gaming laptop? Check out the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14! It is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind laptop. It manages to pack so much into such a small form factor. You get 8 beastly cores with 16 threads to chew through whatever workload you may want to throw at it. For the price, you can buy laptops that deliver better value, but none of them will be as portable as the G14, and THAT is what you are really paying for. Our recommendation would be to skip the 1440p variant and stick to one which trades the resolution for higher refresh rates.

Pros
  • Impressive performance for the form-factor.
  • Anime Matrix display is a very well implemented gimmick.
  • Truly one-of-a-kind machine at the moment.
Cons
  • Heat makes the keyboard unusable.
  • Uses a mid-range SSD.
  • No Pg Up or Pg Dn keys
SPECIFICATION
Processor:AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen 9 Quad Core core processor with 3.3 GHz clock speed
