Laptops are more mobile, which makes them great and preferable over desktops for most people. However, some laptops are greater than others considering a variety of features. What most people look for in a laptop varies based on what it’s going to be used for.  While others make the screen size a priority, some others consider the processing power more than anything.

However, when buying a laptop, one feature is a common consideration for everyone, and that’s good battery life. No one wants to be in the middle of an important work when the laptop turns off. Battery life varies with each laptop model, and there are specific models that are top of the chart in this regard. Some of the models that top this ranking might come as a surprise to you, as they are not the usual suspect.


HP Spectre Folio


This 13.3-inch laptop is a reliable model. Its 18.5-hour battery life makes it attractive to users. Also, the HP Spectre Folio is fully clad in leather, which makes it stylish. It does most operations pretty well, although it lacks a dedicated graphics card. That disqualifies it as a gaming PC. It boasts Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of memory and 256 GB storage.


LG Gram 13 8th Gen


This laptop is one of the lightest laptops you can ever own and my personal favorite. It weighs only 2.2 pounds. The 13-inch LG Gram has a battery life of 16.25 hours. It harbors an Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, 8GB of memory, and 512GB of storage.  Although, it might seem too light and flexible when you hold it, but that greatly enhances its sturdiness. The LG Gram has one of best battery you can find anywhere.


Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch 


It’s hard to make a list of best laptops in some manner and not include Macbook Pro. Apple has always been known for its good battery life. The 13-inch MacBook Pro stays in similar category as one of the laptops with the best battery life. It has an impressive 16 hours battery life, although a slight dip from its immediate predecessor in the MacBook Pro line, but still very impressive. This model comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8BG of memory and 512GB of drive storage.  


Microsoft Surface Book 2


The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is a unique laptop, as it is a two-in-one detachable. This means that you can remove the keyboard and use it as a tablet. The Microsoft Surface Book 2 has a battery life of 16 hours when browsing the web, and 10.25 hours when watching videos. It comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and 256 GB of drive storage.


Dell XPS 15 (2019)


The Dell XPS 15 is a 15-inch notebook, which makes it the largest on this list in terms of size. However, in terms of battery it lasts for 14 hours while browsing the web. In addition to its good battery life, it comes with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of memory and 512GB of solid-state drive. It has a dedicated Nvidia graphics card, which helps with games and graphics.
