The best laptop brand for your specific need is likely going to be less important than any given machine's specific hardware, but when it comes to finding the best laptop or the best chromebook, the name or logo on the lid does go a long way.
Some laptops, like the Apple MacBook Air (M1) have a reputation for stylish design and quality performance, while the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 is the hardcore PC gamer's go-to for gaming on the go.
