Is It Worth It?: The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series Intel Broadwell Core i5 2.2GHz 15.6" Touchscreen Microsoft Signature Edition Laptop is a solid 15.6" laptop designed for everyday use. The 5.3-lb. machine houses a Core i5-5200U 2.2GHz Broadwell dual-core processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Is It Worth It?: Laptops rarely get any cheaper than this. The 4.7-lb. Editors' Choice Asus Celeron 2.16GHz 15.6" Laptop is a budget-minded machine, so in place of a fancy display or ultra-fast CPU, you get a low-power Intel Celeron N2830 2.16GHz dual-core Bay Trail processor, 15.6" 1366x768 LCD, 500GB hard drive, and Windows 8.1 64-bit. However, unlike other sub-$200 notebooks (which usually pack just 2GB of RAM), this system doubles that amount, which allows for better overall performance.
