Top 5 Laptops in Australia for 2020: What to Pick?

Whether you are looking for the ultimate laptop for gaming, working, studying, or designing, you’ve come to the right place. We have compiled a list of some of the most well-received such devices in Australia.

Of course, it is difficult to pick the ideal laptop that will fit everyone’s tastes. Some are a better bargain, others offer excellent performance, while the rest will give you a hard time, heating up way too quickly when you are working on them.

Top 5 Laptops in Australia for 2020

Top 5 Laptops in Australia for 2020.

To make your selection process a lot easier, we have decided to focus on a wide selection of designs and options that will better meet your needs. Here are the most popular five laptops for 2020.  

Asus Vivobook S15: Flexible Option at an Average Price

Perfect for regular use on a limited budget.

  • Full HD IPS Display
  • 178-inch viewing angle
  • Features HDD and SSD
  • Better cooling
  • Short battery life span
  • Limited 4GB memory

For those looking for a lightweight and slim device, this laptop makes for an excellent choice. While it isn’t the ultimate gaming option, it has plenty to deliver for its mid-range value. You get an i5 processor and Intel HD Graphics 620, which is more than enough to get some work done. The keyboard is pretty big to provide users with some additional comfort and flexibility. Overall, it’s a solid mix of good spec and a versatile design. 

Dell XPS 13: The Better Version

Easily fits your personal style. 

  • Outstanding design
  • Excellent 4K display
  • Perfectly positioned webcam
  • Brilliant performance
  • No HDMI connection
  • Expensive

When it comes to portability and performance, it’s tricky to find a laptop that can top the Dell XPS 13. The design is incredibly flexible compared to its previous version. Finally, we got a newer, better edition with perfect camera placement right on top of the screen. Even though it came out a while ago, it still remains a popular choice for many Australians, and it’s clear why. This device leaves plenty of opportunities for adding customisation options for users looking for a unique experience. While it’s not the perfect gaming option, the 8th Gen Intel Core i5-i7 is all you need. 

Razer Blade 15 Advanced: The Go-To Choice for Gamers

For premium gaming sessions. 

  • Smart design
  • Outstanding battery life
  • Goes well over 60FPS
  • High-end build
  • Very expensive
  • The Mercury Edition adds additional costs
  • Loud

This device is in a class of its own. The company is well-known for its high-end devices made for gaming. But the robust build of this one truly stands out. If you are looking to replace a MacBook or a PC with a more portable option, this one will definitely hit the spot. It features a display with a high refresh rate and leaves plenty of space for productive work. If you don’t mind the over-the-top price and loud fan noise, you will love this one. The sharp edges and 8th Gen Intel Core i7 make it stand out, particularly from the rest of the similar devices on the market.

Acer Chromebook 514: The Right Price for Anyone on a Budget

The perfect battery for long study sessions. 

  • Great touch display
  • Excellent design for such a low price
  • Lasting battery life
  • Large touchpad
  • Not the best processor

Not everyone has thousands of dollars to spend. Sometimes it is important to keep it simple and opt for the cheaper alternative, even if it means saving up on a weaker processor. That’s where the Acer Chromebook 514 can come in handy. Unlike some of the other laptops on this list, this one features an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, which may not be the best option, but can still get the work done. You can open multiple tabs at the same time without affecting its performance. Besides, if you want to tweak it up a bit, you can always upgrade some of the parts to get a better laptop for your money. All in all, it’s an excellent option for studying, writing projects, or designing. 

MacBook Air 2020: Totally Worth the Price

MacBook Air 2020

MacBook Air 2020.

One of the most convenient options on the list. 

  • Excellent battery life
  • More storage than its previous model
  • Upgraded keyboard
  • Very few ports

Compared to the 8th Gen previous model, the upgraded MacBook version features a 10th Gen Intel Core. So, if you need some multitasking to get done, this device will do the job quite well. The battery is another reliable component since it can last for around nine and a half hours, which is almost an hour more than the older device. Plus, it comes with a super colourful and semi-bright display, both easy to adapt to. 


To pick the right laptop, you need to know what you are looking for. So, instead of checking the broader categories, choose the one that will best fit your needs and budget. With a strategy like this, you will always stay on the right track.

Stage 4: Restrictions Melbourne Metro

COVID-19 Stage 4 Overview

We are closely monitoring the situation daily and constantly revision and updating company policies and procedures to keep our staff, clients and the greater community safe. If any of our staff have any flu symptoms, they must cease work immediately and get tested while waiting for tests they are forced to stay at home and not permitted to leave for any reason what so ever. Thus far Australia wide as of 7:12 am on 18th August 2020 we have had 4 technicians go in for testing, one in SA and three in Victoria all came back as negative, to our knowledge we have been responsible for zero community transmissions and zero COVID-19 cases. After dealing with virus outbreaks for the last 20 years we understand the social dynamics and life cycles of these epidemics. As an organisation have gone over and above the government regulations and are working on new technologies to keep serving our clients with the highest standards of quality and service long into this pandemic.

We would like to update you regarding the stage 4 restrictions imposed by Daniel Andrews government on the state of Victoria since Midnight 5th August 2020. We will be closely screening all clients that they are clear from any flu symptoms or been into contact with anyone that is confirmed to have the COVID-19 virus. The great news is you can still get your computer fixed in Victoria, all other states are not affected and running as per normal, we have a number of flexible options for you;

1) Remote desktop support, for any software configuration issues we can log in remotely via the internet and fix them.

2) Contact-less computer repairs. We will book a time when a technician will come to your work or home, once the technician arrives they will call you. You are then required to put the equipment outside. The technician will take the equipment away assess it and then get back to you with some options for repairing it. Once the repairs are complete the technician will return the computer back to you.

3) Sendle - DIY send it in. You can book a Sendle pickup which we organise for the next business day. Simple call up and book the job, you then need to put your laptop in a box and we email you a shipping label. Attach the label to the box and a Sendle courier will pick it up from your work or home on the next business day. We will also arrange for delivery back to you once the computer is all fixed up.

4) Australia Post. You can register your details with us and then send your computer in for repairs. We can send it back once the machine is repaired and working like new again.

5) Onsite booking, this is only as a last resort if you need your computer as a primary communications tool or you need help with your NBN or VOIP phone. We can dispatch a technician with the full PPE outfit to you home or workplace to get you back online.
