Choosing the best laptop for your office work, Business, Gaming, Classwork or Streaming can be a daunting task. Below are some of the laptops that we consider to be the best which you may want to buy in 2018.  This review takes into consideration of pricing, operating system, design, and other common chromebook specifications.

Dells XPS 13

 Dell XPS 13 is a premium laptop both outside and in while most laptops have at least a half inch bezel surrounding the display on all sides the XPS 13 has a stunning super-spin infinity edge bezel that’s less than a quarter of an inch thick. Combine that with carbon fiber and metal construction and you have the best looking laptop available.

  • CPU:      Intel Core i7-8550U
  • Operating System: Windows 10

Dell XPS 13 doesn’t earn the best laptop title because of its premium configuration. The entry-level laptop starts at just $789 (Ksh. 81, 400) and can be handsomely equipped for $1000 nothing else offers the same overall value and many competitors feel hopelessly out of date when placed next to Dell flagship.
