Our Favorite Laptops Under $1,500

Rory

A good laptop needn’t cost an arm and a leg, and in fact, even the top-end models are dropping their prices to a much more budget-friendly level without you losing out on power and functionality. From the ever-popular MacBook and the supreme Acer Predator games machine to laptops that are ideal for the home user, our list of recommended models has something for everyone.

But for laptops under $1500, there’s a lot of choice, so what’s best for you?

What to look for when buying a laptop under $1500?

  • Processor: most laptops come with a processor offering up 2 GHz of power, which is more than enough to run the majority of games, wok related programs, movies, and more
  • RAM: with extra RAM easily available, whatever a laptop has initially, can rapidly be increased. 4 GB is a good place to start, but these days, everything up to 1 terabyte is doable
  • Battery life: everything you do on your laptop is limited by the battery longevity, so it pays to look for one with the best battery life possible, depending on your requirement
  • SSD Hard drive:  there’s a good reason why SSDs are more popular than the older HDDs. Loading speeds, durability, and increased energy efficiency make a real difference to the functionality of your laptop

Here, then, are our top 10 laptops for under $1500 – why not have a look? Your next machine could well be here!
