Picking a device as the best laptop for writers might seem strange. But, writers have specific needs for their primary device, just like video editors, 3D designers, and photographers. And those needs go beyond a functional keyboard and a word processor.

For instance, a working keyboard is not enough when you’re typing away for hours. It needs to be comfortable to the touch, accurate, very dependable, and have tactile feedback and a satisfying bounce. If you plan on typing for long hours without experiencing fatigue, you’ll probably need one of the best keyboards on a laptop. With an excellent keyboard, you also need a fantastic monitor that won’t hurt your eyes after long writing sessions and can be used outdoors. Additionally, you will probably want something slim and portable so that you can explore your ideas no matter where you are.

  • Weighs just 1.8kg

Asus VivoBook S15 (S532F) weighs just 1.8 kg (3.96 lbs) and is equipped with 10th-generation Intel Core processors and Intel UHD 620 graphics. Plus, its 15.6-inch screen is bright and vibrant. It is affordable. The screen is only 1080p, and the battery life is average. But, overall, this one’s an ace.

7. Apple MacBook Air (2020): The best Apple laptop for writers

REASONS TO AVOID

  • Screen colors are a little muted

This is the best affordable MacBook ever made.

8. Acer Swift 3: The best budget laptop in the world

AC1836E7-68E2-41D8-942A-F21BCD3A64E3.jpeg

SPECIFICATIONS

  • CPU: up to Intel Core i7-8565U
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce MX150, Intel HD Graphics 620, or AMD Radeon Vega 8
  • RAM: 4GB – 8GB
  • Screen: 14-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) ComfyView IPS – 15.6″ Full HD (1920 x 1080)
  • Storage: 128GB – 1 TB HDD, 16 GB Intel Optane Memory

REASONS TO BUY

  • Superb keyboard and trackpad
  • Excellent performance
  • Very reasonably priced

REASONS TO AVOID

  • It looks a little plain

The Swift 3 (not to be confused with the Switch 3, another laptop from Acer) is an inexpensive laptop; however, that plain chassis is all aluminum and packed with big components. Its performance is like that of the Microsoft Surface Laptop. Its display is a little lower-res, but the two are otherwise strikingly similar – other than the price. The keyboard offers a comfortable typing experience with decent travel.

9. Acer Chromebook R11: An incredible Chromebook at a low price

  • Graphics: Intel HD Graphics – Intel HD Graphics 400RAM: 2GB – 4GB
  • Screen: 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 HD IPS touchscreen
  • Storage: 32GB

REASONS TO BUY

  • Very versatile
  • Very cheap
  • Good battery life

REASONS TO AVOID

  • Awkward trackpad

The laptop runs Chrome OS, so it does away with all the overheads that Windows brings. Hence, it can run excellent and fast on less powerful components, which means a meager price! Its touchscreen is decent, though it’s only HD, and it will flip to become a tablet. It has excellent battery life.

10. Surface Pro 7: Best mid-range tablet with keyboard

REASONS TO BUY

  • Tried and tested quality hybrid
  • Upgraded to cutting-edge CPU

REASONS TO AVOID

  • Starting to feel dated
  • Battery life isn’t the best

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is among the most powerful tablets out there. It boasts 10th-generation Intel Core processors and the best-integrated GPUs on the market. Additionally, it has a USB-C port and Wifi 6 support.
