The new Apple iMac is an all-in-one desktop computer that takes cues from the original iMac of the ’90s but still remains the most forward-looking device for your work space. The iMac combines a surprisingly good 24-inch screen with a more than capable display (all thanks to the M1 processor) and has a 1080p webcam that makes it more than relevant in a pandemic year.
Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro
The 16-inch MacBook Pro is Apple’s most powerful laptop ever. If you are willing to pay the price, you will not be disappointed. Not only is the 16-inch MacBook powerful enough for heavy computing tasks, but it also fixes all the issues the manufacturer community had with the previous generation models. Configurable with the M1 Pro or M1 Max, the 16-inch MacBook Pro becomes the poster boy for Apple’s latest silicon. The new MacBook Pro promises plenty of ports, a great keyboard, and a bright and colorful Liquid Retina XDR display that can reach 1,000 nits when playing HDR content.
Dell 13 XPs
Dell’s XPS 13 has consistently been ranked highly among premium laptops. The bezel-free 16:10 display is gorgeous, the design is top-notch, performance is unmatched, and the keyboard and battery are its strengths. It can cope with everything from web browsing to light video editing and everything in between. Although the XPS 13 is the benchmark in the high-end Windows laptop segment, its port selection is a bit disappointing and the 720p webcam is meh. The 2021 XPS 13 is a sign of Dell doing things right.
HP Pavilion Aero 13
The Pavilion Aero 13 is one of the best ultrathin and lightweight Windows laptops on the market, finding a perfect balance between business and fun if you’re still working remotely. Although the Pavilion lineup is largely limited to value-for-money notebooks, the Aero 13 offers a slew of premium features, including a magnesium-aluminum chassis, long battery life, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600U’s impressive performance, and a bright and colorful display. , It amazes us how HP packed so many features into a notebook weighing just 970 grams. In a way, HP has rivaled the MacBook Air and it has succeeded to some extent.
