Durability. Security. Reliability. These are the hallmarks of a good business notebook. Business laptops tend to sport sturdy metal cases and feature comfortable, backlit keyboards (most of which are spill-resistant). In some cases you’ll get a pointing stick in addition to a touchpad for more precision. Business notebooks also tend to come with security software to help protect your data and the ability to dock your system for the best desktop computing experience.
Selecting the right system doesn’t just come down to specs. Your business and personal style also play a role. With all of the above in mind, we present the top rated business notebooks, based on our in-depth reviews.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is quite simply the business laptop to beat. This 3.8-pound powerhouse offers a class-leading keyboard and fast performance, plus more than 14 hours of endurance with its extended battery. An optional full HD touch screen is another plus, especially for those who opt for Windows 8.1. All of this is wrapped in a sturdy magnesium and carbon fiber design.
