Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products. Try Which? to unlock our reviews. You'll instantly be able to compare our test scores, so you can make sure you don't get stuck with a Don't Buy.

We've reviewed hundreds of laptops in our test lab, but if you're short of time or boggled when comparing specifications, then you don't have to read through lots of reviews to pick the right laptop for you. Below, we reveal our favourite laptop from our recent rounds of testing. We're confident that if you choose this one, you'll be happy with your purchase.

There's nothing worse than spending a few hundred pounds on a laptop, only to feel disappointed by sluggish speeds or a rubbish battery life. So let us do the hard work for you - our top laptop of the month is a Best Buy that may be expensive, but it impressed us in our tests and is a great choice for those after something powerful and flexible.

We've also picked out a much cheaper model too. Buying a cheap laptop can be something of a lottery, with many simply not up to snuff. However, we've found a laptop that is a good choice, offering the full Windows 10 experience for those on a budget.

Our experts would genuinely buy either of these laptops with their own money - we're confident you'll be happy with them, too.

A flexible laptop with a screen that can fold back on itself to serve as a large tablet, this model is definitely different. However, it doesn't rely on gimmicks, with an i5 processor and 8GB Ram meaning this is a speedy laptop that won't falter during daily tasks.

A budget laptop with specs that won't turn heads, but a price that might. This model may be basic, with a low powered processor and just 2GB of Ram, but we can't ignore that it's a real bargain. A good option for casual users who are keeping an eye on the purse strings.
