Most would agree,2012 was a pretty interesting year for laptops in terms of design,we also seen the emergence of the Ultrabook computer,just about everyone laptop manufacturers unveiled their version of the Ultrabook. We are right off the heels of Windows 8 which makes things even more  interesting,you're seeing a flooded market of Windows 8 ready laptops.With that said,we grace the readers with our version of the holiday shoppers guide,for the next couple of weeks,we'll be guiding  readers into selecting  top choice tech devices that'll be the perfect gift for your love ones.Without further a do,here are the best laptops on the market that money can buy,be it cheap or expensive.

The highend option

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook  Price Point: $1,249

Probably the most impressive laptops let alone Ultrabooks I've seen on the market. Lenovo broke tradition when it made this particular computer, its  light in weight, very sleek and thin in design.Along with the design is some pretty impressive hardware,starting with a Core i7-3630M processor, 8GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M GPU with 2GB of storage memory and a 18.4-inch LCD display.

The Apple 13-inch MacBook    Pro Price Point: $1,699

Apple's first generation Retina display for the Macbook,it comes densely packed panel with 4.1 megapixels.It comes with an all flash based hard drive,the new Retina display Macbook  according to benchmarks I've read online has a pretty long lasting battery life.The only drawback with this particular Macbook is an absent optical drive,nor is there a optional graphic card.

The Razer Blade 17.3 inch Gaming system  Price Point: $2,499

The logical choice would have been to go with the Alienware gaming system,but from what I've seen with the the new Razer Blade this a pretty impressive machine,unlike most high powered gaming laptops on the market,this particular system doesn't have a bulky design,it has a sleek thin build.Inside this sleek petite system comes fully loaded with some damn good hardware,it has the Intel Core i7 processor with a 2.2GHz base clock and a 3.2GHz Turbo Boost,the latest Intel HM77 Express Chipset technology.It has a dedicated GeForce GTX 660M graphic card with 2GB of GDDR memory.

Budget Option

The Acer C7 Chromebook

Surprisingly for this price point,the C7 Chromebook has some pretty decent hardware,though there is no Windows operating system on this laptop,instead its running Google's own Chrome based operating system,not your traditional operating system instead its a browser based OS. The Chrome OS sufficient enough to view emails,stream videos and keep up with the latest in social media.
