About the Team
Laptop Mag is the premiere publication focused on mobile computing, from laptops and 2-in-1s to Chromebooks and tablets. We have a dynamic team of editors and writers focused on helping consumers what to buy and how to get the most out of their systems and software. We review the biggest new products from all of the top companies (including Apple, Dell, Lenovo and HP), execute key face-offs and consistently update our top picks across several categories.
Laptop Mag also creates special reports throughout the year, including Best and Worst Brands and Tech Support Showdown, which have become hallmarks for the brand. We meet daily to set priorities and work closely together throughout the day to deliver the best content in a timely fashion.
