HP ProBook

Whether it's a laptop powerful enough for a simple note or a model that allows you to calculate the most complex formulas in Excel, HP ProBooks come in many shapes and sizes. All of these laptops are solidly built, which means they can take a beating.

  • Always an on-site manufacturer's warranty from HP
  • Usually a metal casing
  • At least an Intel Core i3 processor
  • 13 inches to 17 inches
  • For small businesses

HP EliteBook

HP EliteBook laptops are built even more solidly than the HP ProBook models. On top of that, they have better security options like an HP Sure View privacy screen, which makes it impossible for bystanders to read the screen. Each HP EliteBook also has at least an Intel Core i5 processor. This means you can create graphic designs, for example in Adobe Photoshop, regardless of the model.

  • Always on-site manufacturer's warranty via HP
  • At least an Intel Core i5 processor
  • 13 inches to 15 inches
  • Always an aluminum casing

  • For big businesses

Lenovo ThinkPad

The Lenovo ThinkPad laptops come in different versions, so you have something to choose for many different activities. They have extra security options to store files, like a TPM chip. Choose a spill-resistant keyboard and a spilled cup of coffee won't be a problem either. Do you need a laptop that is powerful in terms of housing and performance? Choose a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon model with a carbon casing.

  • Different types of warranties
  • At least an Intel Core i3 processor
  • Plastic, carbon, and aluminum casings
  • Security options such as a TPM chip
  • For big businesses

Three Acer Travelmate laptops.

Acer has different laptops for the business user. The laptops have extensive security options, such as a fingerprint scanner or an infrared camera. You can log in safely without using a password. The TravelMate laptops have been tested to military standards. This makes them suitable for use on the go and in construction, for example. ConceptD is intended for the graphics professional, since it has powerful NVIDIA Quadro video cards for video editing, 3D modeling, and AutoCAD.


Business Asus laptops

Asus business laptops meet the extensive requirements for professional use. The Asus Pro laptop and Expertbook are sturdy metal laptops. The Expertbooks have been tested to military standards. That way, spilled coffee, hard bumps, and high temperatures won't cause any damage. In addition, all business Asus laptops have various security options. With Windows 10 Pro and a TPM chip, you can encrypt privacy-sensitive files.

Other business models

A Microsoft Surface, Acer, and Toshiba laptop.

There are several business models that are worth viewing. All business laptops have at least Windows 10 Pro, and are therefore safer than laptops with a 'normal' Windows 10. Always a good choice.
