There are plenty of articles on net discussing some of those low priced notebooks in the market, and while it’s good to have some cheaper options, majority of those notebooks have significant short comings as far as extensive usage is concerned. On the other hand, while the costly options are not within everybody’s reach, they can provide quite a lot of value for the money spent. So essentially, the most expensive laptops are also the most beastly machines in the market, and even if you can’t get your hands on some of these at the moment, it will still feel good to read about the top five most expensive and the most powerful laptops in the market, because if you are a true geek, you’ll still be able to appreciate the specs.
Let’s take a look…
1. HP EliteBook 8760w Mobile Workstation (XU101UT):
The name says it all; this EliteBook is one of the most formidable notebooks for sale by HP, but then anybody can create a product and call it elite, let’s have a look at the core features to know if it really is an elite book. To start with, you will be getting an Intel Core i7 processor, which is pretty much the fastest available option when it comes to processors, with 8 GB memory, and up to 720 GB of storage. The Optical Drive supports Blu Ray DVDs with a 17.3” display and AMD Firepro M5950 coming with 2 GB dedicated memory for graphics. The notebook weighs a little more than 3 KGs with an 8 cell battery, and HP Elitebook 8760w is going to cost you a little more than $3500.
2. Dell Mobile Precision M6600:
After the HP, it is Dell’s turn to play its trump card, and it has Mobile Precision M6600 for that. Firstly, it has an incredible Intel Core i7 2960XM processor which is Quad Core 2.70GHz, and 17.2” LED screen that can turn into a touch screen whenever you want. It comes with 512 GB hard disk and 32 GB DDR3 memory. With all those mighty specs, the notebook still doesn’t weigh a lot, with a little more than 7 pounds in weight. The laptop will cost around $6000 and it comes with a 3 year warranty.
3. 17 inch MacBook Pro:
Talking of pricey, high-end notebooks, you can’t keep Apple out of these lists for long, so here we are. 17 inch Macbook Pro has 2.4 GHz quad core i7 processor with 4GB memory, 750 GB hard disk, and Antiglare high resolution screen. It is going to cost you a little more than $4000 with all the accessories. But even if you don’t go for the accessories it is still quite costly at $2499, but then it is the best Macbook at the moment, so the price is understandable.
4. Toshiba Qosmio X770-107:
I personally have quite good experience with Toshiba notebooks (not that I’ve had bad experience with others). The most expensive laptop by Toshiba at the moment is Qosmio x770, which is selling at almost $2300. The laptop has all the features being offered by the big wigs, to start with an Intel i7 processor with almost 1000 GB of storage and 8 GB Ram. Coming to the graphics, it comes with Toshiba TruBrite technology and TFT display for 3D vision. Battery timing is not exceptional, still not bad with 2.30 hrs of battery backup.
5. Lenovo ThinkPad W520:
Next on our list is Lenovo ThinkPad W520, with 2.40 GHz i7 processor, and the remaining features aren’t lesser by any stretch in comparison. To start with, it offers NVIDIA 1000M Quadro with 2GB DDR3 memory for graphics and 160 GB hard disk. The notebook weighs less than 3 KG despite having pretty good specs. The laptop is priced at $2500 (approx.) at the moment. The screen size (15.6”) is slightly smaller than the other four on our list, but it makes up with a 9 cell battery offering good backup.
