When laptops hit the meeting table, all eyes should be on you—and those eyes should be green with envy.
Many good options exist to elicit this response, so let’s narrow them down. For the power hungry, the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Mobile Workstation (pictured above) wins. Get the hottest Intel Xeon and Core processors, NVIDIA graphics, up to 64GB RAM, and 4TB of NVMe SSD storage. The Batman-black carbon fiber and magnesium alloy case with red highlights lets everyone in the meeting know who has the real power: you. Price starts at $1,655.
Those who do less compiling and data crunching but still want high “wow” marks should go with the Acer Aspire R 13 (pictured left). There are other good convertibles, but none with the eye-catching Ezel Aero Hinge that lets you flip the monitor in a variety of ways. It’s great for presentations, and you can get this unit with a Thunderbolt USB 3.1 Type-C port and plenty of office productivity horsepower, including a 2560 x 1440 WQHD touch-enabled display. Price starts at $899.
If you’re a Mac fan, your choice comes down to your preference for either the MacBook Air ($999 and up) or MacBook Pro ($1,299 and up). Max portability? Max power? Ask for both, because you’re worth it.
