Laptop Mag has announced the winners of its CES 2016 Top Pick awards, which include Razer, Dell, and Lenovo ThinkPad devices.

Laptop Mag’s editors and journalists tested numerous laptops at the event as part of the selection process.

“At this year’s show, we saw more than three dozen new systems, many with innovative features such as eye-popping OLED displays or convenient USB Type-C power connections,” said Laptop Mag.

Here are Laptop Mag’s CES 2016 Top Pick winners, with product descriptions from Laptop Mag.


Laptop: Razer Blade Stealth

Starting at $999, the Razer Blade Stealth is the thing that dreams are made of. The beautiful aluminum chassis measures 0.5-inches thick and weighs 2.75 pounds, and still manages to accommodate a 4K touch display and a Core i7 CPU.

Business Laptop: Dell Latitude 13 7370

Dell has combined the award-winning carbon-fibre design and infinity display of its XPS consumer line with the kind of durability and security that enterprise IT demands.

At just 2.48 pounds and 0.56 inches thick, this is one of the lightest 13-inch laptops on the market.

2-in-1 Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga

Lenovo’s $1,449 ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the first 2-in-1 to offer an optional OLED display that’s as bright and colorful as the best smartphone screens.

At 0.66 inches thick and 2.6 pounds, Lenovo’s high-end hybrid fits comfortably in even the smallest laptop bag while promising more than 9 hours of endurance.

Gaming Laptop: MSI GT72 Tobii

Tablet: Toshiba DynaPad

Laptop Accessory: Asus ROG XG Station 2

A pulsing blood-red backlight makes the desktop GPU housed in the ROG XG Station 2 look like it’s ablaze.

Hauntingly good looks aside, the graphics amplifier can turn any mild-mannered Asus laptop into a gaming superhero simply by plugging it into a USB-C port.

Innovation: Fasetto Link

A powerful wireless file, media, and Web server, the Fasetto Link weighs just 4 ounces and fits comfortably in the palm of a child’s hand.

Despite being the size of a couple of Tic Tac boxes, the Link is packed with up to 2TB of speedy SSD storage, 4 x 4 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and its own Linux operating system.
