Best of Laptops 2022: Our Top Picks For Gaming, Productivity & More!

Well it’s that time of the year again and we’re back with the Best of Series and yes, this is for everything that we’ve reviewed on this channel for 2022. So it’s been quite a year and we’ve definitely had quite a fair bit of laptops since then. Anything ranging from the thin and light all the way to gaming behemoths. Well we aren’t going to touch upon all of them but if you’re interested, feel free to check out all the individual reviews on this channel itself. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

So first up, we have to talk about gaming, in which case that would be gaming laptops.


Gaming laptops are becoming more and more popular as the years goes by and with what Intel, NVIDIA and AMD are pushing out nowadays, they perform pretty similar to their desktop counterparts. So for this year, our pick for the laptop that takes the spot for gaming goes to the Lenovo Legion 5i Pro.

And perhaps most of you already saw this coming from a mile away, especially more so when the previous generation also took this very spot. What do we have to say, we’ve to give credit where credit is due and Lenovo certainly hits all the right spots with the Legion 5i Pro. It offers great performance, a nice display, plenty of ports, so on and so forth. But yet, it does all that at a price that’s really too good to pass up. Thus that’s our choice!

But of course, we do also want to give an honourable mention to the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE.

This is a laptop that we’ve reviewed much more recently and just like the Legion, it basically ticks all the boxes, except in a small form factor. If you want a more compact yet still high performing laptop without breaking the bank, this is a good option too.

Gaming aside, productivity is an important aspect as well and there were certainly a lot of options this year. So let’s talk about the best productivity laptop.


Our pick for the best productivity laptop goes to the MSI Creator Z16P.

Honestly, this was a pretty tough decision but ultimately, we felt the Creator Z16P was the right pick. Not only does it provide great performance and a splendid display, two factors which are essential for productivity, every other component performed splendidly as well. Not to mention, it does have an SD Card Reader which really can’t be taken for granted.

As for our honourable mention, that will have to go to the Gigabyte Aero 16 OLED.

And with that, you instantly understand why it was such a tough decision. The MSI just edged out slightly with a better ports selection and a better keyboard but again, the Gigabyte will still be fantastic. Though do note that either of them might run your wallet dry for a couple of months.

Now let’s talk about laptops that fit every need, the everyday kind of laptop.


I think this might just be even more obvious. Our pick for the laptop that’s best suited for everyday needs goes to the Apple MacBook Air M2.

It really is a no brainer here because honestly, we were blown away by how good it is. Iconic design, lovely display, great performance and perhaps the best battery life yet.

Our honourable mention will then go to the Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED
