Best business notebooks

The best business laptops on the Australian market

These days it's hard to distinguish between a business notebook and a laptop designed for the average consumer. Both types of notebooks have similar performance and features, but the difference is that business notebooks generally have more management software, better security options and are more solidly built because they are most likely to be used on the road.

In this round-up we've highlighted a variety of business notebooks from Acer, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba. You will find large, desktop-replacement style notebooks such as the Dell Vostro 3700, and even a netbook such as the Sony VAIO X Series, which is favoured by travelling executives. All up, we believe there's something for every type of business user.

Lenovo ThinkPad T510

It may look drab, but the Lenovo ThinkPad T510 business notebook is well-featured, solidly built, fast, and has a long battery life. It does feel a little too heavy for lap use and its keyboard isn't completely solid, but its pros heavily outweigh those cons.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
