CAIRO, Dec. 24 (SEE) - The

US-based Fox News network revealed the best-selling five laptops in 2018

including laptops from Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Lenovo.

HP Spectre x360 13t 

Spectre is HP’s premium consumer

laptop line. The Spectre x360 13t Touch sports an aluminum-clad chassis and

comes with an infrared camera for facial recognition, a fingerprint sensor, and

quad speakers.

Like many laptops in 2018, it has a

2-in-1 convertible design with a 360-degree hinge allowing it to switch to

tablet and tent modes. It also comes with the latest Intel 8th gen quad-core

processor, a 13.3-inch FHD (1,920-by-1,080) touch display, 8 GB of memory, and

256 GB of solid-state storage.

It's priced at $1,149.99 but often

can be purchased at a $100 to $200 discount, even directly from HP.

MacBook Air 2018 

The long-awaited redesign is a

marked improvement on the classic MacBook Air, which hadn’t seen a significant

design change since 2008 when it was introduced by Steve Jobs.

Like the original version, it is

light and durable with a 13.3-inch display. But this version comes with modern

features like a high-resolution Retina (2,560-by-1,600) display and a Touch ID

fingerprint reader. It’s also lighter and smaller than the classic.

The base model with 8 GB of memory

and 128 GB of storage goes for $1,199.

Lenovo Yoga C930 

The China-based computer maker

offers a wide range of laptops but this is definitely one of its best,

receiving a number of 4- and-5-star reviews.

The 2-in-1 convertible (360-degree

display) C930 screams premium design and materials. Highlights include a

soundbar built into the hinge, a nicely-situated slot for a pen near the back

hinge, and all-day battery life. The Yoga C930 also comes with an 8th gen Intel

quad-core processor, 13.9-inch FHD (1,920-by-1,080) touch display, 8 GB of

memory and a 256 GB solid-state drive.

It's priced at $1,399.99 but often

can be found at retailers or direct from Lenovo with hefty discounts.

Microsoft Surface Go 

The smallest Surface laptop-tablet

hybrid is a rare combination of low price and quality.

This is a laptop for travelers,

weighing just 1.15 pounds. The Surface Go Signature Type Cover keyboard adds

another half a pound, keeping the weight well under 2 pounds.

A model with a 10-inch

(1,800-by-1,200) touch display, 128 GB solid-state drive, 8 GB of memory, Intel

Pentium processor, and USB-C connector is $549. Add the $129.99 keyboard and

it'll cost $678.99.

Google Pixelbook

Most laptops run Windows 10 or

Apple’s macOS. But Chromebooks are built around Google’s Chrome OS and

typically don’t require a lot of expensive hardware so they tend to be

inexpensive.

The Pixelbook is at the apex of

the Chromebook market and comes with a high-quality chassis and a gorgeous

high-resolution display (360-degree hinge). It comes with an energy-efficient

Intel processor, 128 GB of storage (more than enough for a Chromebook) and

8 GB of memory.

The Pixelbook is priced at $999

but can often be discounted by $100 or more.
