    A great deal of varied technology was on display at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, from eye-catching AI devices to, well, some really strange inventions. The selection process for the best of CES awards was quite difficult because of the wide variety of laptops on display at the expo. These were not your typical computers with yearly performance updates. AI was the main subject, and several computers had CPUs specifically designed for AI. Furthermore, high refresh rate OLED screens were common, and a variety of laptops with distinctive and inexplicable designs were on display on the show floor. We’ve created a list of the best laptops at CES after careful review.

    Asus Zenbook Duo

    After numerous revisions including Zenbook 17 Fold and Project Precog, ASUS has finally presented their actual dual-screen laptop, the Zenbook Duo, at CES 2024. Similar to Lenovo’s Yoga Book 9i, the Zenbook Duo has two separate screens and an integrated, easily detachable Bluetooth keyboard for portability. Specifically, the 14-inch OLED screens from ASUS stand out thanks to their 3K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and stylus compatibility. Priced at $1,500, it comes at a $500 savings compared to the Yoga Book, making it an enticing option in the field of high-end ultraportables.

    HP Omen Transcend 14

    With a weight of under 3.5 pounds, HP presents the Open Transcend 14, a gaming laptop that is considered to be the lightest 14-inch laptop in the world. It supports a 14th-generation Intel Core Ultra 7 or Ultra 9 processor, up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM, 2TB of storage, and an RTX 4070 GPU, all without sacrificing performance due to its ultraportable design. It stays connected with two USB-A, two USB-C (supporting Thunderbolt 4) and an HDMI 2.1 jack. Users can also choose to upgrade to Bluetooth 5.4 and Wi-Fi 7. With a starting price of $1,600, it is scheduled to release later in the year.

    Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 5

    The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 5’s distinctive appearance, which makes it seem like a cross between two different gadgets, defies convention. When the monitor is removed, what starts off as a standard clamshell laptop can become a 14-inch tablet with complete functionality. When separated, each component keeps its unique functionality. The tablet can be used as an inking display using Lenovo’s Freestyle app, as a wireless monitor for the laptop base, or as a stand-alone Android device. When coupled with an external screen, the laptop base can operate in tandem as a compact desktop computer. It is rather expensive, but it provides a flexible and adaptable user experience; prices start at $2,000.

    LG Gram Pro

    LG launched its redesigned Gram laptop lineup at CES in December. The LG Gram Pro is noteworthy, mainly because it has the possibility of having a separate GPU. It’s important to note that the GPU is restricted to an RTX 3050, a former and entry-level graphics card, regardless of whether you choose the 16- or 17-inch model. Still, the remarkably tiny design of these computers is what makes them unique. One of the most lightweight laptops with an RTX graphics card is the 16-inch model, which weighs only 2.9 pounds and is only 0.57 inches thick.

    Furthermore, LG has improved the panel selection, offering a 120Hz OLED or 144Hz LED display. The devices felt more robust than in prior years, indicating improvements, although possible build quality concessions to attain such small sizes raising worries.
