The 5 laptops we're most looking forward to trying in 2019

- CES 2019, the biggest tech show of the year, was light on funky futuristic laptops that will likely never come to market.
- What it did have were some great-looking laptops that are either already available for sale, or else will come out later this year.
- Dell, Lenovo, HP, and Huawei all had strong outings this year, with new models that look great, offer great specs - and that are often cheaper than a comparable Mac from Apple.
CES 2019, the largest tech convention of the year, got me excited about laptops in 2019.
I didn't see any crazy concept laptops, with weird designs and funky features that are unlikely to make it to store shelves - unusual, because those are usually out in force at CES.
What I did see was a good range of perfectly reasonable and practical models that we're definitely going to see come to market in 2019. In a way, these "reasonable" new laptops are actually more exciting than the far-out concepts, mostly because they'll actually be available to buy at some point this year.
This year, there was a great showing by Lenovo, Dell, HP, and Huawei.
