Jumper’s entry into our list is a near-second place. The design is aesthetically pleasing, but without sacrificing performance. The battery lasts up to ten hours, which makes a big difference when you want to be mobile. We found that if you’re conservative on screen brightness, the battery can actually last much longer than ten hours!
While we don’t find Windows 10 to be quite as good an operating system for touchscreen laptops as the Chrome OS, it’s still quite good. There’s no bloatware preinstalled, and the system is responsive and quick.
