10 Best Laptops For Microsoft Office 2022 – Reviews & Guide

You probably have a PC or Mac computer in your home, but what if you need an ultraportable laptop to work on the go? You might be tempted by one of the many Windows tablets on the market, but they’re not very good for getting real work done.

A full-fledged laptop is much more appropriate for your office needs. It has a real keyboard and a large screen, plus all the functions that you’re used to getting with a traditional computer. Even if you just need it to occasionally check email or write up documents in Word while traveling, nothing beats the convenience of a full-fledged laptop.

Here’s how we picked these laptops

We chose these particular laptops because they’re some of the best-reviewed and highest-rated models available today. Beyond that, we also wanted to include options that are equally well-suited for Microsoft Office as they are for playing games and watching movies. After all, why should you have to buy two separate machines when one can do it all?

We divided our recommendations into three categories: Budget laptops, midrange laptops and gaming laptops. Each category offers a variety of choices at different price points so you can find something that fits your budget and suits your lifestyle.

1. Microsoft Surface Laptop 3

Also, the Edge browser is powered by Microsoft’s new EdgeHTML engine, which renders web pages smoothly and largely eliminates rendering bugs. For our battery test (continuous web surfing), we got a very impressive 12 hours, 8 minutes with the default Balanced Mode enabled. But if you want to squeeze as much juice out of the Surface Laptop as possible, switch to Power Saver mode.

2. Dell XPS 13 (9370)

I am going to take a closer look at Dell’s latest refresh of the XPS 13, but first, I need to give a big shout-out for saving the best for last. That’s because this is probably the only laptop in this guide that doesn’t have a single drawback worth nitpicking. It ticks all the right boxes to fit as our performance-based option for the best laptops for Microsoft Office.

3. Dell Inspiron 15 7000

It may be the most powerful and best laptop for MS Office. This Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a unique notebook that excels in performance, display, battery life, and gaming without being the most stylish notebook around. In some cases, it’s disadvantageous to have a top-tier laptop especially if you move around a lot or commute to work on trains and buses. The Dell Inspiron 15 7567 isn’t the thinnest or lightest of the pack. In fact, it weighs around 5.5 pounds. However, it has military-spec durability which means that your computer will last for years to come despite you accidentally putting it into your back bag unprepared.

4. Acer Aspire E 15

Acer Aspire E 15 e5-575-33BM is one of the few budget laptops that doesn’t look flimsy or like a 10-year old computer. The laptop has a metallic spine running from the edge into the chassis which gives it added sturdiness. The rest of the chassis has solid plastic with a little bit of flex. This is not uncommon for budget laptops to have this flex since they didn’t put too much effort into making them look premium and professional. It’s also slightly curved toward the edges where you may notice a creaking sound when you touch the display lid or palm rest area. But I guess considering its price point, it’s not so bad.

5. Asus Vivobook 15

The Asus Vivobook 15 Inch laptop was introduced in August 2017 and was meant to compete with the likes of Dell XPS 9560. It is considered a premium mid-range laptop that comes with a variety of ports, especially the USB-A 3.0. Among other conveniences, it comes with a fingerprint scanner and storage options.

6. Lenovo IdeaPad 330

Oh, the IdeaPad 330, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I’ll be frank, since last month I switched from PC to Mac, my PC love has dwindled. But I still have a soft spot for the blue and green logo. And here’s why; It’s a sleek 15-inch look, great keyboard shortcuts, and it comes with Win 10 Home version preloaded. Some think it’s heavy but when you lug around a 12-inch laptop (well technically not because my iPad Pro is so light), you trade off the weight against ergonomics or compactness; and for me, this device wins every single time.

7. Apple MacBook Pro

Operating SystemMac OS

The design of the MacBook Pro is both classical and modern. At a first glance, it looks like that of a regular notebook, while the unification of its matte black screen and case gives it a distinct flair. The classic Mac OSX logo on the lid gives it an authentic feel. It’s light for a 15-inch laptop, weighing 4 pounds and measuring 1 inch thick. The build feels polished overall even if some might find its shape dull.

8. HP Pavilion

Although the HP Pavilion is far inferior to HP’s higher-end Sceptre and Envy, it is by far among the best value machine for users on a tight budget. The Pavilion has many pros. It thrives for its good balance of style, performance, and price.

9. Dell G3

This doesn’t mean the G3 can’t turn heads. The interior is pleasant on the eyes with a clean black and red color scheme. Like the HP Pavilion, there are Beats Audio speakers on the front and back of the chassis. The sides have a matte plastic that slightly blends in with the faux metal interior giving you a more unified design.

10. Acer Aspire E15

The Acer Aspire E15 sets out to prove that wrong. For most of your office work, for light multitasking, and work on Microsoft office it works with minimal fuss. As far as budget laptops go, the Acer Aspire E15 is one of the best laptops for the office, providing good value for money. Its long battery life means you can run programs for as long as 8 hours without excessive worries about charging.

Its screen is just a little dull at times and its touchpad leaves much to be desired but these are minor niggles in a laptop that largely cuts the mustard. It also has a nicely designed chassis with a comfortable keyboard and a simple enough trackpad.
