Top Intel i5 Laptops 2018

Jan 2018. Best Intel Core i5 Laptops for 2018. The Intel i5 is one of the best selling cpu’s in laptops. On this site we review good, affordable Intel i5 Apple and Windows Laptops for family, college, gaming and work/business use. laptops today have a sleek design, are lightweight and have some serious processing power with the Intel i5 processor. The laptop brands discussed below are: Dell, Asus, Apple, Toshiba and HP.

When buying a new Intel i5 laptop there are several factors to take into account: price (a laptop with better specs is more expensive), processor (older i5-4250 or the newest i5-6200u Skylake processor makes a big difference in performance and price), iMac or Windows, graphics card or not, design. Which laptop is best for you depends on your wishes and what you are going to use your new laptop for (casual use, gaming, laptop for family, student, business).

What Specs Do You Want?

An Intel i5 laptop is a midrange laptop that can be used as a family computer, as a laptop for college/school, as a laptop for “on the road”, for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs. It is more than fast enough for normal day-to-day internet, social media, writing reports/documents/presentations, watching a movie etc. The Intel i5 processor has two cores which makes it suitable for multitasking. After deciding for an i5 processor in your laptop there are more choices to make, the specs you want your new laptop to have.

Amount Of RAM Memory

RAM Memory is short for Random Aces Memory. This is the memory that the i5 processor directly uses to process data. The amount of RAM is therefore very important for its performance. If you want your laptop to boot fast and react fast the available amount of RAM (more internal memory is better, today laptops should have at least 4 GB, 8 GB or more is preferable).

Type Of Storage: HDD or SSD

The type of harddisk makes a lot of difference for speed. SSD is much faster than regular HDD and is increasingly affordable but if you use the storage mainly for movies/photo’s etc then the bigger amount of GB’s for the money that a HDD provides can be usefull.


When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the video-card is important. The i5 is actually an Integrated CPU-GPU processor. This means that the i5 has integrated graphics processing and for normal use you don’t need a separate graphics card. A separate Graphics card is only necessary when you want to play heavy graphics demanding games on higher settings or use the laptop for video editing. Then you would better buy an Intel i7 Laptop which is more suitable for that purpose.

#2 Best Intel i5 Laptop 2018: Apple MacBook Pro With Touch-bar and MacBook Air

The Apple MacBook Pro is the most popular Apple laptop, closely followed by the Apple MacBook Air. Both are excellent laptops with the best specs you can get on the market, but they are also the most expensive mainstream laptops around. The MacBook Pro shown below has a 2560 x 1600 screen, 512 Gb (very energy efficient) flash drive and four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports . Those specs make this laptop extremely fast. If you are an Apple user, nothing can compare to the quality of a MacBook or a MacBook Air. If you are not an Apple user the price and the problematic data transfers with windows and Linux devices could be an obstacle.

A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/3 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #3 place in the ranking.

Best Netbooks Chromebooks 2017

Best 11.6 inch laptop Netbook: Dell Chromebook 11 11.6-inch

2017. Best Netbooks/ Chromebooks for 2017. Netbooks and Chromebooks are the best! A good netbook is easy to take with you, lightweight, affordable, has a sleek design and is fast. I bought a new netbook for when I travel. Long battery life and weight are most important for me. A good netbook is able to perform all basic functions like surfing the net (it is not called a netbook for nothing), all social networking, some basic text editing, watch a movie. 11 inch laptops have better specs but are not as cheap as a netbook.

Remember when looking for a new netbook: Netbooks ARE NOT full blown laptops and the specs are according to the price: basic. Netbooks are lightweight, have impressive battery life and are easy to take with you. The 11 inch laptop gives you the same portability, are although they cost a bit more, still very affordable but the cpu, motherboard and screen are generally speaking better quality.

The main competitor is the tablet, but I choose my netbook or 11 inch laptop over a tablet to take with me on the road in the USA anytime because it has a normal keyboard, and when I have closed it it is safe. I would never be at ease with a tablet in my bag in fear of breaking the expensive glass screen.

So, When you want to buy a new netbook or 11 inch laptop there are several things to consider like: price, weight, processor, Chromebook or not, Apple or Windows etc.
