The top 14 laptops you can buy today

Jon Turi, @jonturi

It's been a few months since we added anything to the laptop section of our buyer's guide, so we figured it was time for an update. Dell's new XPS 13 was a standout at CES this year, offering a nearly bezel-less 13-inch display packed into an 11-inch machine. It weighs just 2.6 pounds, too, putting it on par with Lenovo's equally svelte Yoga 3 Pro. If price is a factor, HP's Stream 11 is a great deal at just $200. This so-called Chromebook killer may not be the fastest, but it's able to run regular Windows applications and has a funky design, to boot. If gaming is your focus, MSI's GT72 Dominator is also worth a look. Not only are we fans of its build (and battery life), but when you opt for top-of-the-line internals, it's a beast of a machine. As usual, there are plenty of other stalwarts to be found in the guide, some of which have recently been refreshed with Intel's new Broadwell processors. If you just want a quick look, you can scroll through all the items in the accompanying gallery.
