The best laptops in India offer everything that you need from a laptop. This includes a combination of great performance, battery life, and a build and design that's convenient for the user. The laptops in this list cover a wide range of use cases, form factors, and budgets. We've got both of Apple's laptops here, including the MacBook Air M2 and the MacBook Pro 14 M2 Pro. We've also got convertibles, or 2-in-1 laptops, like the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 and the Lenovo Yoga 9i, and premium thin and lights like the Dell XPS 13 Plus. Powerful mainstream laptops, with large screens are also included in this list, like the LG Gram 17, or the budget all-rounder, the Acer Swift X. This list will help you find the best laptop to suit your needs.
The new Apple MacBook Air with the faster M2 chip is a powerful daily driver. This is an update to the already fantastic M1 chip; we could actually have included the M1 MacBook Air on this list as well, and it’s still an option if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the MacBook Air M2. This laptop offers fantastic everyday performance paired with great battery life. The new M2 variant of the MacBook Air offers a bigger and brighter screen as well a higher res webcam. The base model of the MacBook Air comes with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, and an 8-core CPU and GPU. The machine is very-well optimised, so while it may look like there’s fewer cores than other AMD and Intel processors on this list, you will still get excellent performance.
- Excellent display, Superior mousepad and keyboard, Good I/O port selection
- Weak speakers, No dedicated GPU, Lack of palm detection on the touchscreen
The Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 is the best premium 2-in-1 laptop we’ve tested this year. The laptop comes with a fantastic 16-inch 3K display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is quite common in creator laptops, allowing for more real estate on the screen when working on projects. In our testing, we found the display to be very bright at 415 nits, and we got an sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage of 100%, making this an excellent machine for your content creation needs. Of course, the 16-inch display is also fantastic for consuming content. The laptop comes with a 13th gen Intel Core i7-1360P, which is a powerful mobile processor with 12 cores. This is paired with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM clocked at 6400 MHz, and 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage. You’ve got great I/O support as well, including two thunderbolt ports making this is a great package for anyone looking for a capable 2-in-1 laptop.
The 2023 variant of the Lenovo Yoga 9i features the new 13th gen Intel Core i7-1360P processor. That is paired with a fantastic 4K or 2.8K OLED multi-touch display with 100% sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage, making this a great laptop for content creation on the go. You also get 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM clocked at 5600 Mhz, and 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage. The 13th gen processor nets an overall improvement in performance over the already fantastic 12th gen processor. So if you’re looking for premium thin and light with a fantastic display and great performance paired with portability, you can’t go wrong with the Lenovo Yoga 9i.
The MacBook Pro 14 2023 with the M2 Pro is one of Apple’s most powerful offerings in the market, and comes with a price tag to match. There is a pretty massive leap in performance over last year’s MacBook Pro 14, with an overall improvement of 20-25% across the board. That’s pretty huge, considering how powerful the MacBrook Pro already was. The M2 SoCs are really pulling their weight. Other than a straight up improvement in performance, the MacBook Pro 14 also promises good battery life, while keeping thermals in check. The laptop features a bright 14-inch display with accurate colours, making this one of the best creator laptops you can pick up in the market. If that wasn’t enough, you can get up to 96 GB of RAM and 8 TB of SSD storage, which will take care of pretty much any and all of your storage and memory needs. Of course, that’s also going to cost you a bomb, and possibly an arm, a leg, a kidney, a lung, and more.
When you think of a premium thin and light laptop, the Dell XPS 13 is a laptop that’s guaranteed to pop up. The Dell XPS 13 Plus is the latest from Dell which features a 12th gen Intel Core i7-1260P processor with 12 cores and 16 threads. This is a powerful processor which offers great performance. The Dell XPS 13 Plus also features a new design, while the exterior maintains the same look as its predecessor, the XPS 13 Plus features a new keyboard which we really liked, and a new floating touchbar. The laptop still maintains top-notch build quality. The XPS 13 Plus comes with a bright and crisp OLED display, with a UHD+ resolution (that’s 3840×2400) and 100% sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage, making it great for all your content creation needs. The Dell XPS 13 comes with two type-C ports. Both of which are Thunderbolt 4 ports which are very versatile.
Most of the laptops on the list so far have been extrememly premium thin and light or creator laptops. However, we’ve got an option for those of you who are looking for a budget laptop as well. This is the Acer Swift X, a thin and light laptop which features an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11390H. This is a quad-core processor with a max clock speed of 5 GHz, which is still very good. This is paired with an NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti to help with intensive rendering and editing tasks. You also get 16 GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM, 1 TB of NVMe Storage, and a FHD display with an advertised brightness of 300 nits and 100% sRGB coverage, making this an appealing laptop for students. Or anyone looking for an entry level or budget creator laptop.
