The last thing online gamers would want is to panic about their laptop’s battery running out while they're at the middle of a game. So you might want to make sure that the laptop you're getting is a heavy-duty machine that can take care of business.So, off you tinker into specs. But for a busy gamer like you, deep in the game, spending time looking on hardware is not the top priority. But don't worry, here's a list of the 8 best gaming laptops that are not only budget-friendly, but come with the quality and durability for extremely long playing sessions.
Alienware 13 (OLED Display)
Alienware 13 with its OLED display boasts a very vibrant screen that no other gaming laptop can offer. Despite being one of the smallest VR-ready laptops, you can play the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets. It's also hailed for supporting buttery-smooth frame rates with its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU and Intel Core i7 CPU. Its OLED screen is 13 inches wide, helping provide a fantastic gaming experience. You may also opt to add VR-ready desktop graphics. This gadget's downside though is that it is not as finely tuned when pitted against higher-end OLED TVs. All in all, the OLED display makes this “limited edition” Alienware 13 a terrific gaming experience from the visual standpoint.
Asus ROG G701VI
The Asus ROG G701VI is a heavy, dynamic laptop that can muster long gaming hours made possible by its overclocked Intel Core i7-6820HK CPU. It has a 64GB-RAM, two 512GB PCIe M.2 SSDs set in RAID 0 configuration and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU with 8GB of VRAM. Gamers are given the visual treat with the 1080p, 120Hz Nvidia G-Sync display and 178-degree viewing angles that will entice you to play your favorite games wherever you are.
Origin PC Eon17-SLX (GeForce 980)
This Origin PC laptop is powered by desktop parts that include an overclocked processor and the likes of a desktop graphics card for VR systems such as Oculus Rift. The generic body, though, is the downside. It's clunky and looks ordinary considering the cost of this laptop. If you get the VR configured be prepared for some extra expenses. The keyboard, touchpad and display are so-so. While the Origin PC Eon17-SLX is a bit pricy expensive and bare, it is praised for being one of the very few gaming laptops that contains components dedicated for VR hardware like the Oculus Rift.
The moment you get a glance of HP Omen, you'd immediately want to buy it because of its attractive, bold design. User customization options are also available, and the gaming experience is enhanced with its great keyboard. It also has a touchscreen, one thing that too many gaming laptops don't have. Its biggest disadvantage is having a mediocre graphics card. But all in all, HP's unique-looking, very portable, great performing laptop makes it a gamer's favorite.
Acer Predator 15
Seldom you'll see a 15-inch gaming laptop, which makes the top-end Acer Predator 15 stand out. Because gaming laptops are usually used for long hours, this one is made with extra cooling facilities to keep the parts running. Battery life is also excellent. Aside from its OK’ish looks, everything else in this laptop is great. It's actually one of the fastest gaming laptops and with its extra cooling, you don't have to worry that hours of gaming would overheat this gadget.
Gigabyte Aero 14
Gamers agree that Gigabyte Aero 14 is great in performance at a value for money. With its 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia Pascal-series GPU and a screen resolution that exceeds the usual 1080p, the Gigabyte Aero 14 is packed with what every gamer is looking for at a more affordable price. Portability and performance matters most for gamers and this laptop delivers. It only weighs a little over 4 pounds and is just 0.78 inches thin but it can do heavy duty performance. It's battery life is also worth praising (3 hours and 38 minutes nonstop).
Razer Blade's battery life is one of the top reasons why gamers prefer this laptop. You can play on it for 3 hours and 35 minutes and its battery life could extend for up to six hours of non-stop video. The graphics are also great and with its Razer Core external GPU enclosure, loading the Nvidia Titan X comes without hassle.
Aorus X5 v6
Aorus is not as famous as other gaming laptop models, but wait til you try Aorus X5 v6; you'll forget about other brands. It's actually praised for being a durable gaming laptop, with a simple design giving it an attractive, sleek look. It comes in an all-black finish with a GTX 1070 powerhouse. Connect it to a 144Hz external monitor and you can enjoy Overwatch at up to 120 fps on Ultra. If its internal capacity isn't enough for you, surely its 15-inch, 3K resolution display would suffice. So, who wants a subdued design when you can have powerhouse performer?

Are you left with frequent back pains after mopping the floor? Have you ever wanted to assign this task to someone else? If so, you're in luck, because today we have the 7 Best Mopping Robots of 2017. First of all, let me get this straight. Mopping robots are mostly meant for regular maintenance mopping and not for extreme scrubbing and cleaning. These handy little devices do a great job for regular maintenance and doing so, in the long run, will be enough for your floors. You can go for a traditional mop now and the mopping robots will do a great job of assisting you.
Smart SoftBase Robotic Mop Sweeper
For less than $40, it is hard to find a mopping robot. This is the cheapest of the lot and there is nothing else that comes for less than $100. But don't be skeptical about its performance. You get what you pay for. This robotic mopper has two modes of operation – one that lasts for 30 minutes and another one that lasts for 90 minutes. It is also extremely silent and the cleaning cloth that comes under the mopper is very easy to replace. For someone who wants to try out robotic moppers, this would be the perfect one to start with. What's more, it can run off of rechargeable batteries, which I think is just amazing.
ECOVACS Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Like I mentioned earlier, there is only one robotic mopper that comes under $100. The ECOVACS robotic vacuum cleaner doubles up as a mopping robot and comes with a price tag of around $160. It is round in shape and works on infrared sensors that allow it to scan the room properly. There are different modes for vacuuming which includes auto, spot, and edge. Best thing is that you can combine vacuuming and mopping together to clean at one go.
Haier Robot Vacuum Cleaner Floor Cleaner
Haier is world famous for a lot of their home appliances which includes air conditioners, refrigerators and more. There is no doubt that their mopping robots would be good too. The thing that sets apart the Haier robotic mopper from the others is the looks and build quality. The round shape and silver color goes really well along with the center portion which houses the display. There are five cleaning modes – auto, spot, edge, scheduling, and plan. It takes things to the next level and you can vacuum, sweep and wet mop in one single step.
The ROLLIBOT BL618 takes things even further. If you thought you cannot do more than vacuuming, sweeping and wet mopping, you were wrong. BL618 comes with one cleaning mode less than the Haier robotic mopper, but compensates with an additional feature. Apart from vacuuming, steaming and wet mopping, the ROLLIBOT BL618 also performs UV sterilization. The 10 sensors present on it allow every kind of terrain to be cleaned with ease.
Dibea D900 looks spectacular compared to all the other mopping robots. It looks more like a hovercraft than a robotic mopper. While most manufacturers are going for round-shaped moppers, Dibea went ahead with a D-shaped mopper. The color combination is not very impressive in my opinion, but that comes down to a matter of personal choices. Coming to its performance, it has 4 cleaning modes and the small height ensures that it will go under any furniture with ease. The 2-in-1 wet and dry mopping use nanofiber mops for the best possible cleaning that you can get from a mopping robot.
ETENTUOS Robot a SMART
The ETENTUOS Robot a SMART has features very similar to the D900 from Dibea. It has an array of infrared sensors that allows it to track furniture and stairs. There are four working modes to choose from and a microfiber mopping cloth that cleans everything it possibly can. While operating, it produces sound less than 55dB which is extremely quiet. One of the best things about this mopping robot is that it will work for around 2 hours with a single charge and also automatically docks and recharges. With a 3 year warranty, there is nothing much you can ask for from a robotic mopper.
iRobot Braava 380t Mopping Robot
Perhaps the best mopping robot as well as the most expensive on this list. The Braava 380t from iRobot is a beast when it comes to mopping. It has two working modes – dry sweeping and damp mopping. The Northstar Navigation works sort of like a GPS and cleans each and every spot in your house. Braava also returns to its initial spot after cleaning which makes it extremely easy to find. At just 3.1-inches in height, it will fit under most furniture. The Turbo Charge Cradle that comes along with it can be used to charge the Braava in just about 2 hours.

Laptops have never been this portable and cheap! Take a quick look online and you'll be surprised that there's a wide array of them to choose from. And they're getting more affordable. Blame it on the tablets and smartphones but with the growing availability of their lightweight, portable and sleek version, getting a laptop has never been easier and faster!
The laptops we're featuring on our list do not only come at a price that's value for your money but they also got the aesthetic appeal, wafer-thin designs and internal guts that will get your work done immediately. So read on and find out our top picks for lightweight laptops in 2017.
HP Spectre 13 V011DX
This Windows laptop is sleek enough to function like a MacBook. It's so lightweight you can put it inside your slingbag or use it without any hassle. It features a tactile keyboard and its monitor comes with the standard 1080p display. Compared to MacBook, its Intel Core-series processor enables it to have the stylish look and the computing abilities you'll never have to doubt. It features three USB-C ports where you can attach your peripherals (a converter is needed though when using the old USB-A).
Dell XPS 13
There's no doubt Dell XPS 13 is the most compact Windows laptop, featuring a stunning bezel-less display, lightweight, compact frame, and off-center webcam. While its small frame limits the battery life, its Infinity Edge makes every buck you spend well worth it. Since its bezel is only a few millimeters thick, buying this 13.3-inch laptop will make you think it's only 11 inches. It is really portable and comfortable to carry without sacrificing the number of USB ports or the battery power. The laptop also features both Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.0 ports.
New Razer Blade Stealth
Stylish and made of only premium materials, this laptop contains new Intel Kaby Lake processor to give you a guarantee of a top notch performance. Its vibrant high-resolution touch display makes it ideal for reading and word processing. Another interesting thing about this laptop is that its battery life is pretty long so with its sleekness, quality performance, and long life, you get a bang for your buck.
Apple MacBook MLHA2LL/A
No list of lightweight laptops for 2017 is ever complete without the MacBook. Last year, the Apple bestseller took a new version to new processors that ensures speedy performance and longer battery life. For aesthetic purposes, a rose gold color option is now available to add color to your choices. The new version of Macbook contains features including touch screens, 4K resolutions, depth-sensing webcams and detachable keyboards. Its minimalist look makes it nice to use whether you're working at home, in the office or outdoors.
HP Spectre x2
Another offering from HP is the HP Spectre x2. It is hailed for its slim look but don't ever think it isn't long-lasting. It's actually built with a sturdy design in mind and its stiffer keyboard makes it a tough choice against Microsoft's Surface Pro. Added bonus to this lightweight laptop is the keyboard cover. Its mobile broadband antenna makes n-the-go data access fast and convenient. Another observation, though, is that it's difficult to operate the kickstand and the slowness of the processor is worth noting. Battery life is definitely OK. Yet, with its slim, attractive look, lower-power processor, and cover keyboard, buying the HP Spectre x2 is a wise decision.
Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series (3162)
This Dell lightweight laptop is a budget friendly choice for the price conscious consumer. But, wait, there's more. Its sturdy build, excellent performance, and long battery life are bug pluses. However, critics note that this laptop looks divisive with its old blue color while the middling display with poor viewing angles are two things to consider. For its basic price of $180, this laptop is a best buy with its features, durability and functionality.
Asus ZenBook 3 (UX390UA-XH74-BL)
You'll never find any laptop as thin as this lightweight one from Asus. But mind you, it's earning raves for its first-rate performance and battery life. Listening to music makes a great experience thanks to its strong speakers. The fingerprint reader will surely attract those looking for added security features. The con however, is that this laptop only has one integrated USB-C port and it only has a limited to full HD panel. The touchpad may also feel slippery. Performance wise and considering its battery life, the Asus ZenBook 3 is a practical purchase.
