10 Best Laptop for Hackers often use generic equipment or assemble machines from generic parts. Brands tend to have quirks which can leave clues that help others track down the hacker. Also, hackers use their tools as little as possible. They compromise other people’s computers and conduct attacks through other people’s hardware to reduce the chances of being caught. By the way, cracking a system and bringing it down are very different and often opposite goals. It’s much harder to break a system if it’s down.

Hackers don’t deal with the brand of laptops.

Usually, hackers love to assemble their PC with bleeding edge technology. i.e. Processors, Graphics Cards, Motherboard, Wi-Fi Antenna, RAM, etc.

What about the Operating system?

About the OS, they use almost all types of OS, but Linux (Kali Linux) is their favorite one. In many of the cases GUI tools for Windows and Mac (Unix Based) too can do the tricks but Linux they Love it.

These are the 10 Best Laptop for Hackers

Alienware one of the best laptop for hackers. For 2016, Alienware is upgrading its winning formula for gaming laptops, bringing Intel’s new 6th-gen Core i7 CPU and Nvidia’s 980M graphics to its leading 17-inch gaming laptop. You still get Alienware’s signature spaceship-inspired case, tons of customizable lights and a comfy keyboard. Toss in a 17.3-inch screen that sets a new bar for gaming machines, and you’ve got a pretty potent package for $2,750. Other notebooks have more powerful desktop-level GPUs built in, but when you connect the Alienware 17 to the optional graphics amp ($980 with Nvidia 980Ti GPU), its gaming performance goes to a whole other level while future-proofing your purchase.

2. Lenovo Y50-70

Here’s looking at you, kid. Following the current trend of outfitting gaming laptops with ultra-high-resolution displays, Lenovo has launched the Y50-70 Touch. Priced at $1,499, the Y50-70 Touch adds a 3840 x 2160-pixel touch panel to the Y50’s chassis. To further justify the price increase, Lenovo has upgraded the processor and storage, which translates into a small bump in performance. All of this is nice, but like its Y Series brethren, the Y50-70 is plagued with a bulky frame and short battery life, keeping it from being realistically portable.

3. Dell XPS 15 9530

4K displays are relatively rare for TVs, and even more so for notebooks — which is one of the reasons Dell’s refreshed XPS 15 is so interesting. Its crystal-sharp 15-inch touch screen is a delight for video and photo editors. But, more important, the XPS 15 ($2,549 as configured; starting at $1,599) has the muscle to back it up: a Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 750M graphics. And it’s encased in a lovely aluminum and carbon-fiber shell, making it as — if not more — attractive than the MacBook Pro with Retina display. But is it worth it to spend more than $2K on 4K?

4. Asus Zenbook UX305FA

Designed to beat the MacBook and competitors like the HP Spectre at their superslim game, the Asus ZenBook 3 UX390UA tips the scales at just 2 pounds but offers heavyweight performance, thanks to an optional 7th-Generation Core i7 CPU and a blazing-fast PCIe SSD. Starting at $1,099 ($1,599 as tested), the 12.5-inch laptop also provides an extremely vibrant screen, rich audio and, on the top config, a uniquely beautiful royal-blue chassis. However, if you want the sleekness and speed of the ZenBook 3, you’ll also have to accept mediocre battery life and a lone USB Type-C port for both power and data.

5. Dell Inspiron 15 7559

I can’t believe that it’s budget! Dell’s new Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop (starting at $799, reviewed at $849) has the looks of a system twice its price. Thanks to its 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti GPU, this laptop is more than a pretty face. It has plenty of power to play most of your favorite games (on medium settings) and can multitask with the best of them. The lackluster display leaves a lot to be desired and keeps the laptop from earning our coveted Editor’s Choice rating. But if you’re looking for a solid gaming notebook that doesn’t drain your wallet, one thing’s for sure — the price is definitely right.

The exclusive Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch has all the right ingredients for a great Ultrabook. Inside this sharply designed $699 machine is a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, a sharp 1600 x 900 touch screen and excellent battery life — more than enough to meet the competition head-on.

8.Razer Blade Pro

Razer is a feng shui master. Once again, the company has somehow managed to squeeze a whole lot of awesomeness into the Blade Pro’s 0.88-inch chassis, including an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. As if that weren’t enough, the 17-inch laptop also comes with Razer’s ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard — a world’s first — and a 4K touch screen that uses Nvidia’ G-Sync anti-tearing technology. The mind-blowing performance, sleek design and gorgeous display make the $3,699 Razer Blade Pro feel like it’s worth every penny.

Powered by a new generation of mobile graphics starring Nvidia’s brand-new GTX 1070 graphics card, Asus’ ROG G752VS OC’s offers record-breaking gaming performance for hundreds less than older notebooks featuring Nvidia 900-series GPUs. And despite the savings, Asus hasn’t skimped on other features, as the G752VS features a massive 32GB of RAM and a bright, 17.3-inch full-HD display in a refreshingly sleek gray-and-copper body. And while there’s a number of other 1070-powered systems yet to come, for $2,499, Asus’ ROG G752VS OC has set a new standard for high-powered gaming rigs.

This refreshed MacBook sports the company’s innovative Force Touch trackpad, which can perform a host of pressure-sensitive commands. It also packs an optional AMD Radeon R9 R9 M370X GPU, which Apple says can deliver up to 80 times the graphics performance as last year’s model.
