2022 is over! With the new year, it’s the perfect opportunity to take stock and choose the three best laptops that have marked us this year in writing. For 2022, it is on the side of Asus, Apple and Lenovo that we had to look.
The year 2022 has been rich on many points on the tech side. For the laptops, it has notably seen the official arrival of foldable screens, as well as new generations of chips such as the 12th generation, very successful at Intel, or the M2 at Apple. It should also be noted that, like everything, prices are not falling… but rather increasing.
This year was clearly the year of ultrabooks: the three best PCs of this year are all of them. It should also be noted that these are more and more powerful, with an ever better controlled heating.
We have rewarded a whole bunch of tech products this year: find them all in our list of Frandroid Tech Awards.
- Good power and controlled heating
- Stunning OLED display
- Thin, light, strong
the Zenbook S 13 Oled has everything you need for the perfect ultraportable. Thin, light, stylish, the featherweight from Asus measures only 1.49 cm at the thickest point. It is the perfect companion for any nomad since it weighs only 1.096 kg. Very nice, all aluminum, with a large keyboard and a trackpad extended as much as possible, it fully encourages mobile productivity.
But where Asus stands out, especially in this price bracket, is on the screen. The OLED panel in 2880 × 1800 pixels, touchscreen, is particularly well balanced, in addition to being easily adjustable according to your needs. But the Zenbook also stands out for its performance, which is surprisingly good: the Ryzen 7 6800U does the job perfectly and thanks to the AMD Radeon 680M graphics chipset, you can run a number of somewhat demanding tasks, in particular certain games… all while avoiding heating it.
The Asus ultrabook is also satisfactory on autonomy, which reaches the day if you make the right settings. Of course, we will note a few black points here and there, such as the location of the speakers under the chassis, or the absence of 90 Hz for cooling.
Still, taking all these points into consideration, the Zenbook S13 Oled is THE model to recommend for those looking for an ultraportable under Windows.
- Efficient and very autonomous
- Flawless keyboard and touchpad
- Totally silent
Apple has been perfecting its famous MacBook Air for years now. And it is clear that the apple brand has reached a certain maturity with the 2022 edition, called Macbook Air M2. It must be said that the firm had taken a giant step in 2020 with the introduction of ARM processors.
In 2022, the M2, a worthy successor to the M1, is therefore even stronger, both in terms of power, heating and autonomy. The performance/autonomy ratio is simply the best in its range. Devoid of fans, the MacBook Air is perfectly silent. It’s the perfect machine for working: the keyboard and Touchpad have reached an excellent level of finish and comfort. The same is true for the quality of the aluminum chassis, which is now similar to the design of the MacBook Pro and places it on a premium range. However, the device is not free from defects: the new notch on the screen is not the most pleasant, and it deprives us of Face ID. Distrust also on the resistance of the paint of dark colors.
If you want a Mac, you clearly won’t make any mistakes choosing Apple’s latest. But it will be necessary on the other hand to pay the price, since the firm has drastically increased its prices. It is certainly the best laptop of 2022, considering it only for what it is, the consumer will however have to make his choice in the light of the presence of the MacBook Air M1, which can be just as interesting.
- Top-notch design
- An unrivaled featherweight
- Good Intel SoC performance
the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon from Lenovo lives up to its name. Weighing less than a kilo, it is also particularly thin and compact with its small 13.3-inch panel. Lenovo manages the feat of scoring points everywhere: a quality design and chassis, a pleasant keyboard and touchpad, a fluid screen, very good performance and satisfactory battery life.
The 2560×1600 pixel IPS display proves excellent for web use, and benefits from a pleasing 90Hz refresh rate. Lenovo. Thanks to its 12th generation Intel SoC (i5 i5-1240P or i7-1260P depending on the configuration), the Slim 7i Carbon is on all fronts. Autonomy, meanwhile, can go up to 10 hours maximum, which is really honorable for such a thin PC.
In short, in 2022 Lenovo delivered a particularly well-balanced mobile and high-end PC.
