It was a wonderful year to be a Windows user.
The year 2017 saw many of the leading PC makers, including Microsoft, release new
or updated laptops, desktops, 2-in-1s, and convertibles, some of them deliciously
drool-worthy. Microsoft released a powerful new Xbox console and took 4K gaming
centerstage. The company also debuted Windows Mixed Reality. PC gaming reached
new heights. And we can’t even begin to list
the awesome accessories released in
2017 that make our other devices that much better.
It was not easy to identify the best products in any of these categories. But that’s
exactly what we did. The following devices are quite simply the best of the best, and
every one truly deserves to be called one of Windows Central’s Best of 2017.
