Best Ultrabooks of 2019

As far as Ultrabooks are concerned, Microsoft's Surface Laptop 2 is our top pick. It has a premium build quality, a knockout touch display, and plenty of configuration options available to help you get exactly what you need.

Best Overall: Surface Laptop 2

The Surface Laptop 2 is a 13.5-inch clamshell notebook with a touch display that supports the Surface Pen for a premium inking experience. It has a 2256x1504 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio with a relatively thin bezel. 
In our testing, color accuracy hit 99 percent sRGB and 81 percent AdobeRGB, both excellent results that contribute to a vivid picture.
Inside is a faster solid-state drive (SSD) compared to the original Surface Laptop, this time able to hit read and write speeds in the area of 1,500MB/s and 811MB/s, respectively. Both Core i5-8250U and Core i7-8650U Intel CPU options have four cores for robust performance, you can add up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and the SSD size goes up to 1TB.
You can expect to get between eight and ten hours of life from the battery when going about general tasks, allowing you to leave your charger at home.
 An IR camera for Windows Hello logins is seated above the display, and the keyboard and touchpad are some of the best around, with an Alcantara palmrest adding a bit of luxury. If you're in the market for an Ultrabook, don't sleep on the Surface Laptop 2.
