There was a time when laptops were filled with compromises. They were slower and had crappier screens than their desktop counterparts. But times have changed with mobile tech now pervasive and laptops sporting powerful performance, high-end specs and some of the best screens you've ever seen. Each year, the bar is raised a little higher. So, what's the best laptop of 2018?

Dear Lifehacker, I just bought a new laptop with USB type C charging. The manufacturer's wall charger is rated 45W, and is not modular - the USB-C cable is all one piece with the power adaptor. I'd love to minimise the gear I take on the go, so ideally I'd like a wall charger that is modular so I can plug in a micro USB cable for my phone / Bluetooth headset, and a USB-C cable for my laptop.
The Huawei Matebook X Pro is considered to be one of the best laptops of 2018. You can currently buy it from the Microsoft Store for $300 off! But you'll need to hurry - stock is limited and the deal will be ending in a few days. Here are the details.
Huawei's Matebook X Pro finally provides a real competitor for the MacBook Pro, and the good news is it's now available for pre-order in Australia! If you're thinking of jumping the Apple ship, or just looking for a new laptop, here's what you need to know.
For the first time in recent memory, Apple has held an event full of surprises. Sure, we all expected the iPad Pro to receive an update, and there were rumours of new Macs coming, but no specifics leaked. No supply chain photographs, no product names popping up in iOS firmware.

Fresh from breaking into the top five PC makers in the US for the first time, Microsoft's hardware division is looking to continue its momentum with the release of the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6. Aside from an all new jet-black matte finish, most of the changes this year are under the hood.
Microsoft has announced a number of new products, including the Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6, Surface Studio 2 and the all new Surface Headphones. This means that, barring the Surface Book, Microsoft’s entire line of Surface devices has been refreshed. In the case of the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Laptop 2, a slick new colour option has also been added to the mix in the form of matte black.
Dell's spiffy Developer Edition notebooks are a product of the company's "Project Sputnik", an "open-ended exploratory project to identify what developers wanted in an ideal system". Unfortunately, despite being widely available in the US and Europe, you can't get them in Australia (the exception being the Precision 5520). So, why do we miss out?
Laptop battery life has improved massively over the last few years, thanks to increasingly more power-efficient CPUs and GPUs. But when you're away from an outlet, it doesn't hurt to take extra steps to preserve the electrons in your lithium-ion, like tweaking the settings of your antivirus software.
