Top 10 all-purpose laptops

These general-purpose laptops are built to go and can do it all, making a great choice for most notebook users

It's amazing what you can get for $1,500 these days, or even less than $1,000. These laptops are built for comfort, both at work and play, with fast CPUs and graphics processors, good battery life, and enough room to type comfortably and watch a video without squinting. Audio, video, and screen quality are not always created equal, and some of the units put utility ahead of multimedia. But you'll find most of these units to be affordable, portable, usable, and up to the task.
