#2 Laptop this Christmas: The latest Apple MacBook Pro and MacBook Air
The latest Apple MacBook Pro and MacBoook Air are the most popular Apple laptops. 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 10th gen Intel i5 processor, a 2560 x 1600 IPS screen, up to 1TB (very energy efficient) flash drive, 16 GB RAM and 4 thunderbolt 3 ports. Those specs make this laptop extremely fast. If you are an Apple user, nothing can compare to the quality of a MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air. When you are not an Apple user the price and the problematic data transfers with windows computers could be an obstacle.

Best Christmas Ultrabooks
Here you find the best Ultrabooks available today.
AMD Laptops 2021
AMD processors have less processing power then Intel processors but they are about half the price. For example: for the same price as an Intel i3 processor which is a duo core processor you have a quad core AMD A10 processor. The AMD A10 and i3 processors are similar in performance. AMD processors run better with a good amount of fast RAM memory. Therefore you will normally see more GB RAM installed in the laptop. You will find better/ separate graphic-cards in AMD laptops then in Intel laptops for the same price because the processor is cheaper. This is useful for better graphics in games and video editing.
Best Gaming Laptops Christmas 2021
Some older and also cheaper laptops with good specs:
#3: Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)
This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop today. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing. For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. 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 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #3 place in the ranking.
