The best poker notebook excels in processing speed and picture clarity.

A sturdy antivirus program is necessary for running poker applications efficiently. Another key aspect is the screen display; and though full HD is recommended, good resolution of 1080i is an absolute must and so is a 512 MB dedicated graphics card.

Furthermore, SSD drives are much more preferable than HDDs, being almost thrice as fast as HDDs while launching applications or booting, and altogether provide better performance.

The best notebook for poker implements a good operating system and an inbuilt Wi-Fi function effectively.

  • The latest upgrade of the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air brings a more powerful Core i5 processor and an astounding 17.5 hours of battery life. It remains our top choice for ultraportable laptops.


  • While we wish it had a better display, the 2015 MacBook Air is superfast and lasts longer on a charge than any other ultraportable today.


  • After some extensive testing, we found the MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015) to be little different overall to the 2014 model. The Thunderbolt 2 update will prove useful for connecting to high-resolution UHD displays, and a few percent of added processor power is never unwelcome. But hoped-for improvements in graphics performance and battery longevity did not arise in our testing, in spite of a new Intel processor which was expected to shepherd benefits in both areas.


  • The latest MacBook Air 11-inch is Apple's smallest and least expensive laptop, with good performance and more than 11 hours of battery power.


  • While the screen could be sharper, the updated 11-inch MacBook Air is a very light ultraportable that offers great performance and battery life for the price.


  • Available at the same price as last year, the new 11-inch MacBook Air has the same super-fast storage as before, and around 10 percent increase in processor performance. Gaming performance was always borderline, and now we find it no better and even fractionally slower. But overall battery runtime increased by almost a third in our tests, a very useful upgrade on the already very decent 10 hour-plus battery life of the previous generation.


  • The Surface Pro 4 is the best version of Microsoft's tablet yet, with a stellar display, snappy performance, and more than 10 hours of battery life. With Windows 10, the Surface Pen, and optional Type Cover, it can replace your laptop.


  • While it might not look new on the outside, the Surface Pro 4 features a faster CPU, bright high-res screen and improved Type Cover but with much less battery life.


  • A host of small refinements cements the Surface Pro 4's position as the best-in-class Windows tablet -- so long as you're prepared to pay extra for the required keyboard cover accessory.


  • The Toshiba Chromebook 2 CB35 puts a bright, highly accurate display and stellar battery life in a sharp, silver form that makes it the Chromebook to beat.


  • If you want a Chromebook, the Toshiba Chromebook 2 is the one we recommend. It has a great screen, looks good and delivers in every way that matters.


  • The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.


  • The $249 Asus Chromebook Flip offers a flexible design, a vibrant touch screen and long battery life, making it a very good laptop-tablet combo.


  • The Chromebook Flip is notable for being one of the lightest Chrome OS laptops on the market. Its versatile and convertible design, solid build quality and affordable price also help set it apart from the pack. The smaller-than-average keyboard will be a turnoff for some, but ultimately, the positives outweigh the negatives.
