Every year for the last 10 years, Laptop Mag has released a list of best laptop brands. For the first time ever, Asus has earned a spot at the top of the list.

According to Laptop Mag, the laptops coming from Asus over the past year have been consistently reliable with powerful specs to back them up. The machines have ranged from simple Chromebooks to serious gaming systems.

Laptop brands are evaluated based on a range of criteria from hardware design and review scores to support and warranty services. The time period reviewed this year began May 15, 2019 and ended May 15, 2020. After Laptop Mag's extensive research, Asus emerged at the top of the list.

Two of the most impressive machines to emerge this year were the ROG Mothership and Zephyrus G14, both gaming laptops with serious kick. The ROG Mothership features a detachable screen, a first for gaming laptops, while the Zephyrus G14 had notably reliable performance.

    One important thing that the article doesn't mention is bloatware. I'd prefer a laptop that hasn't been tainted by McAfee.

    This is not really accurate . ASUS is not the best when it comes to business notebooks and professional notebooks. they are really far behind.

    Asus is fine for home user but for business users, support and certain ergonomics is more important than laptop specs.

    Eg. users tend to treat their company laptops more carelessly than their personal ones. So, needs to be durable. Connectivity and other features in business different from home ones. Security too. Home users don't usually need TPM and bitlocker but not the case for business.

    Also, there is warranty and support. Home laptops are fine with 1yr but business needs 3yrs. Also, no carry-in. NBD on-site is a must. Some may even require 2-4hrs 24/7. Also need accidental dmg warranty etc......
