Best 15in notebooks

We round up the best 15in laptops on the Australian market

Due to their size, plentiful features and low price, 15in laptops still represent the sweet spot in the market. Pricing for a well-featured 15in notebook starts at around $800 and it can go up to around $2000 depending on its specifications. In this round-up, we've gathered some of the best 15in laptops we've seen to date, including the Medion Akoya P6624 (MD98390). While the Medion is not always available (Aldi usually sells them every few months), it's worth keeping it mind for when it does go on sale at Aldi. Almost every Medion model we've seen offers incredible value. We've also included HP's Pavilion dv6, which is a quad-core laptop for $999, as well as Dell's very popular Inspiron 15R, Samsung's glossy R590-JS02AU, MSI's FX600, Lenovo's business-centric Thinkpad T510 and Acer's Aspire Timeline X.

Medion Akoya P6624 (MD98390)

The Medion Akoya P6624 is a marvellous desktop replacement notebook for anyone who has a sub-$1000 budget. It features plenty of mod cons considering its price, and its good graphics performance makes it a legitimate notebook for a budget gamer. It even comes with a digital TV tuner. Indeed, it's hard to fault a notebook that has so many features in addition to a competitive price; it will be available to purchase from Aldi supermarkets from 28 October.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
