Whether you're looking for an efficient work station, powerful gaming rig or just something simple to binge Netflix on, the holidays are the perfect time to dive into a new laptop. This year has brought a bumper crop of devices, so let us lend a hand with the New Atlas Gift Guide to laptops.
Work and play
For a less bank-breaking option, you can't go wrong with the flexible Samsung Notebook 9 Pro, at $1,299.
Playing with power
All work and no play is a dull way to live, and if the holidays mean it's time for a break, these gaming laptops can let you do it in style. Samsung's first foray into portable gaming is the VR-ready Notebook Odyssey for $1,599, while dedicated gamers might go for Acer's powerful Predator Triton 700, packing a Nvidia GTX GPU and up to 32 GB of RAM for $2,799.
And then there's the high-end, hardcore Alienware 17 R4. This beast is stuffed with a GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, 32 GB RAM, eye-tracking input and the option for a UHD display.
All prices are accurate at time of writing and quoted in USD.
