The best work laptop for you is a personal choice but will almost certainly come down to a few factors of specific interest to work users. The ideal work laptop should have a powerful processor for computing tasks, ample RAM for multitasking, lots of storage for work files, and a high-resolution display for less eye strain during long shifts. It also should be lightweight for portability, have a durable build, and long battery life, especially if work takes you away from electrical outlets.

While personal laptops are used for various activities such as entertainment, browsing the internet, and gaming, work laptops are specifically designed to cater to professional and business tasks. Work laptops often have better security measures, enterprise-level software, and additional features to promote on-the-job collaboration.

The best work laptop typically comes equipped with features that enhance productivity and facilitate efficient work. These features may include a fast processor, lots of RAM and storage, a comfortable keyboard for long hours of typing, a high-resolution display for clear visuals, and convenient connectivity options such as USB ports, WiFi, Bluetooth®, and so on.

In most cases, you can install additional software on your work laptop—but only if doing so complies with your company's policies and does not compromise security or functionality. Before proceeding with any software installation, ensure that the software is compatible with your system by checking its requirements. Familiarize yourself with your organization’s software usage policies to ensure you’re complying with them and assess potential security risks by verifying the software's source.

To protect the data on your work laptop, you should use strong and unique passwords and enable encryption for sensitive files. You also should regularly update your operating system (OS) and antivirus software, and never visit or download files from suspicious websites. It's also important to always follow your workplace's security protocols and guidelines.

Work laptops—the best of them, anyway—always sport a powerful processor that can handle complex computing chores and keep complicated software programs running without slow-downs. This makes a top-of-the-line processor highly valuable for professionals who use resource-intensive applications, or who need to multitask by keeping multiple, complex software programs running all day.

Yes, most of today’s best work laptops have video output ports such as HDMI and/or DisplayPort, allowing you to connect them to external monitors, projectors, or other display devices. Some of these external devices can even be attached to regular USB ports, which are common on work laptops. These capabilities come in handy if you’re giving presentations or setting up a dual-monitor work environment.

The battery life of a work laptop varies depending on factors such as the laptop's specifications (some batteries have more charging capacity than others), the power settings you choose, and your personal usage patterns. Generally, the best work laptops provide anywhere from a few hours to a full day of battery life. So always check the specifications of any laptop you’re considering. And it can’t hurt to carry your charger or power adapter with you, especially for extended work sessions.

Yes, if you use multiple devices, and if your workplace allows it, it’s typically possible to establish a remote connection from your work laptop to your office computer. This allows you to access your files, applications, and even control your office computer from a different location—really, anywhere with an internet connection. Remote access can be convenient if you maintain two or more work-related computing devices.

Absolutely. Most work laptops are suitable for video conferencing and online meetings. They often come with built-in webcams, microphones, and speakers to facilitate seamless communication. And even if these components aren’t built-in, you can usually attach stand-alone webcams and so on to the various ports on your system.

When working remotely, you can help ensure the security of your work laptop by always (and only) connecting to secure and trusted networks and, if possible, using a virtual private network (VPN) to encrypt any data you transmit. It’s also important to keep software and antivirus programs up to date and to remain cautious about phishing emails or suspicious links.

If your work laptop is running slowly, you can try a few troubleshooting steps. These include closing unnecessary applications, restarting your laptop, checking for software updates, running a malware scan, and checking to confirm you have free storage space for your system to use. If the issue persists, contact your company’s tech support staff for further assistance.

Yes, many work laptops are compatible with docking stations. Docking stations are designed to allow you to place your laptop into them and immediately connect to peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, mice, that you’ve plugged into the dock. This can be especially useful when you have a dedicated workspace or need to quickly switch between a mobile and desktop setup.

Work laptops offer several advantages over desktop computers. They are portable, allowing you to work from various locations and travel with your work setup. Laptops also consume less power, are more space-efficient, and provide flexibility in terms of connectivity options. Additionally, they allow for a seamless transition between work environments, making them ideal for professionals who need mobility, whether it’s room-to-room or country-to-country.

Yes, work laptops always have built-in WiFi capabilities to connect to wireless networks. Simply go to your laptop’s network settings and choose the desired network from the available options. You should be able to work anywhere you can find an active—and adequately secure—WiFi connection.

Yes, the best work laptops often come with various security features to protect your data. These may include features like biometric authentication (such as fingerprint scanners or facial recognition), encrypted storage, secure boot, and remote data wiping capabilities. These security measures help safeguard your work-related information and maintain the confidentiality of sensitive data.

Absolutely. Work laptops are well-suited for programming and software development tasks. They can handle development environments, code editors, and compilers or interpreters for different programming languages. Whether you're working on web development, mobile app development, or data analysis, a work laptop provides the necessary computing power and resources.

Yes, work laptops can be used for virtualization purposes. With virtualization software, you can create and run virtual machines on your work laptop. This allows you to set up different operating systems or create isolated environments for testing, development, or running legacy software.

Yes, you can connect your work laptop to a VPN to establish a secure connection when accessing sensitive work resources or working remotely. A VPN encrypts your internet traffic, making it more secure and protecting your data from potential threats or unauthorized access.

Absolutely. Cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive can be used with your work laptop. These services allow you to store files in the cloud, sync them across multiple devices, and easily share them with colleagues or clients. Cloud storage provides convenience, accessibility, and data backup options. The best work laptops seamlessly integrate with cloud storage services for superior productivity.

  • Premium models: From high-end powerhouse computers like our Legion series to budget-friendly but reliable models like the ThinkPad series– Lenovo has laptops of various designs and specs to fit anyone’s needs.

  • Laptops powered by AMD and Intel: With the latest processor technology, never worry about your PC slowing down or freezing up when it’s crunch time.

  • Better organization: Since you’ll be able to keep all related spreadsheets, documents, work accounts, etc., in a single location (your work laptop), it will be easier to keep track of everything. Never forget an important deadline because a critical item is stored on an office computer.

And those are only a few of the general advantages of the best work computers. We’ll discuss some more when we discuss tips to help you pick out the best work laptop for your specific needs.

Who could use a good work computers

Buying the best notebooks for work can benefit a lot of people. Let’s discuss some of the key professions and types of people we’ve noticed get the most out of high-end business computers. Don’t worry if your title doesn’t fit into one of these categories– anyone can take advantage of our work laptops.

3D artists

If you deal with complex 3D modeling and designing, then a good work laptop is a must for you. 3D rendering for game design or similar jobs requires a ton of CPU and GPU power for processing. With the right work computer, you’ll save time and effort by buying something beefier.

Scientists

Scientists often deal with massive amounts of data and need computers that can run multiple calculations in tandem. Whether you’re running a training model for an AI machine or working with deep learning algorithms in programs like TensorFlow, you’ll need the computing power to get the job– especially when the slightest miscalculation can cause you to miss out on valuable insights.

Video and Photo Editors

If you deal with video editing and need to produce high-quality content in a timely manner, then you should invest in a high-end work laptop. If you don’t, you’ll find you spend more time waiting for videos to render than actually stitching them together and working on your craft.

The same goes if you deal with photo editing too. As you stack on filters and different Photoshop layers, you’ll find your PC moving like a slug if it doesn’t have the processing power to handle it.

Students

Yes, these are the best notebooks for work, but that doesn’t mean students won’t benefit from the features and specs of these laptops. This is even more true if you’re studying to enter one of the fields above.

But as we mentioned, these are just a select few categories that work computers are especially good for. Of course, anyone will benefit from a good work PC.

Picking out the best work laptop

Deciding on what work laptop to buy can seem like a daunting task, especially since there are so many options to choose from. However, we at Lenovo are always looking to make the process smoother, so we’ve put together a quick handy guide to discuss the main elements you need to look at when picking out a new work notebook.

At the end of the day, you’ll need to find something that fits your needs perfectly. Even if you’re buying a single laptop for yourself, it still needs to be an investment that will last and make you a return.

Let’s go over the main aspects of a new work laptop you need to consider:

The operating system (OS)

No matter what model you choose– ThinkPad, Legion, or even Chromebook–picking the right OS is the most critical decision you’ll make during the entire process.  These are the most common options on the market:

  • Windows: The most widely used OS in business, Windows has excellent compatibility with many different programs and hardware, robust security features, and a host of Windows services such as Azure that will propel any business to new heights.

  • Linux: The OS for hackers and programmers, Linux offers more control over your system and hardware.

  • Chrome OS: Built off Linux, Chrome OS aims for simplicity but with the backing of a powerhouse company like Google.

Understand CPUs

The CPU is often referred to as the “brain” of your computer. It contains all the physical components your PC uses to take in information and do work. There are two big players that you have to choose from Intel and AMD. While they both make excellent, fast CPUs, AMD is generally considered the leader between the two titans– with the AMD Ryzen 7 Pro offering great functionality at an incredible price point.

GPUs Explained

Another processor is the GPU, but it deals exclusively with graphics and visuals on the PC. For most business purposes, you’ll want to focus more on the CPU so you can run multiple tasks in parallel. However, if you deal with video editing or 3D rendering in CAD software, then you’ll want to pay extra care to the GPU.

Don’t skimp on RAM

Nearly as important as the CPU is RAM, which stands for random access memory. It has a direct impact on your performance. If your work only entails answering emails, video calls, and entering numbers into Excel, then you can get away with around 4GB of RAM. However, more is always better and we recommend starting with at least 8GB. Then if you deal with more resource-intensive tasks, then you can go up to 64GB.

Storage capacity

Another important feature to think about is the amount of storage space you’ll need. Typically, you’ll want as much as you can get so you don’t have to worry about deleting things when it gets full. Also, the best hard drives available today are SSDs or solid-state drives. They’re compact storage devices that don’t have moving parts, meaning you can transfer/open/move data and files at lightning speeds.

Screen Size and Resolution

Last but not least is the screen size and resolution. Of course, you’ll want something large enough that all your work is clear and visible, but it does come with a tradeoff. The bigger the screen, the larger and heavier the laptop.

As far as resolution, you can devote more of your budget to other areas and get something around 1440p that offers the best of both worlds– beautiful visuals at an affordable price.
