The Most Popular Laptop Christmas Gift 2016
#1 Best Laptop 2016: HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop
HP has been a quality laptop producer for many years. The Pavilion series are laptops with good specs for a decent price. The specs for this HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop are: latest 6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor 3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10, 15.6-inch Full HD WLED-backlit IPS Display (1920×1080), HDMI, B&O PLAY with 2 speakers. For a price around $535 a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!
#2 Laptop 2016: The New Apple MacBook Pro (with touch bar) and MacBook Air
The New Apple MacBook Pro with touch bar 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 IPS screen, up to 512 Gb (very energy efficient) flash drive, 8 GB LPDDR3 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. If you are not an Apple user the price and the problematic data transfers with windows computers could be an obstacle.
Specs for the New 13.3 inch MacBook Pro laptop:
2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz), 4 Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, Intel Iris Graphics 550,Mac OS Sierra.
#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.
#4 The New 2016 Dell Inspiron 15 15.6-Inch Laptop
Dell is a well known laptop brand for many years. The Inspiron series are good laptops for a good price. The specs for this 2016 Newest Model Dell Inspiron 15 15.6-Inch HD 1366 x 768 LED Backlit Touchscreen Display High Performance Laptop are: Intel Core i5-5200U processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVD+/-RW Drive, HDMI, Bluetooth, Win 10, Intel HD Graphics 5500 with shared graphics memory. For about the same price as my #1 pick you get a 5th gen i5 processor, not the newest 6th gen. but with 8GB RAM in stead of 6GB and a HD touch screen in stead of a full HD non touch screen. The choice is up to you :)
#5 Laptop 2016: Samsung Chromebook 3 11.6-Inch
This Samsung Chromebook 3 has the following specs: Celeron N3050 2.6 GHz processor, 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 screen, 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM, 16 Gb SSD. The Samsung Chromebook 3 is the successor of the long time very popular Samsung Chromebooks one and two. Pros: very, very fast because of the 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM and 16 Gb Solid State Drive, lightweight, slim design and fully integrated with all Google services. Biggest problem for people who don`t like Google: fully integrated with Google services.
#6 Lenovo Flex 3 15.6-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook
This is an ultrabook, that means that it has more features, like a touch screen and better specs but is also a bit more expensive that a regular laptop. Although it is more expensive it has an excellent price/quality. That is why it is # 6 of the best laptops 2016.

AMD Laptops 2016
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.
