Real estate is a multi-billion dollars industry and offers a lot of competition to those aspiring to join the field. In order to survive and grow in the industry, you need to be at the top of your game all the time. How can you do that? Own an extra-ordinary laptop that not only improves your performance but also makes the entire experience enjoyable for you.
The job of the realtors revolves around traveling, making, and delivering presentations on properties to clients. Now imagine, you have prepared an excellent presentation but while you are delivering it, your laptop gets stuck. Frustrating? I know! Thus, to help you with that, I have compiled the list of 10 extraordinary laptops that would always have your back.
So, let’s bid farewell to the lagging, system crash, rapid battery drainage, and dive right into our list of best laptops for realtors.
However, before going into the detailed reviews, take a look at some of the basic features that these laptops have to offer.
|Samsung Galaxy Book||Core M||4 GB|
|Dell XPS 9370||Intel Core i7||16 GB|
|Apple Macbook Pro||Intel Core i7||16 GB|
|Lenovo ThinkPad X1||8th Gen i7||8 GB|
|LG Gram||8th Gen i7||16 GB|
|Acer Chrome Spin||8th Gen i5||8 GB|
|Apple Macbook Air||Core i5||8 GB|
|Dell XPS 12||Intel Core M 6Y54||8 GB|
|Huawei MateBook X Signature||7th Gen core i7||8 GB|
|Newest HP Spectre||8th Gen Core i7||16 GB|
1. Samsung Galaxy Book-Perfect Blend of Performance and Convenience
- Light-weight device
- Provides excellent battery backup
- Compatible with Samsung Galaxy smartphones
- Comes with a keyboard and S-pen
- Decent processor, storage, and RAM
The device on our list is something that redefines convenience and user-friendliness. It is a tablet cum laptop that is extremely light-weight and has all the qualities a realtor seeks in a laptop.
The device features a Core M processor which is the newest chip designed by Intel. In low-key or non-gaming laptops, Core M often makes a better case than Core “I” series. It is because “M” demands a fraction of power compared to “I” which improves the overall battery timing of the laptop.
Thanks to this new chip, this device provides up to 9 hours of video playback on a single charge. So, even if you forget to plug it in a night before the presentation, the laptop would have plenty of battery to get you through the session.
What I like about this device is that it comes with all the necessary accessories and you do not have to purchase them separately. It comes with a keyboard and S-pen, both of which can be easily connected and removed from the device. I personally prefer tablet view with S-pen as it turns on the creative beast beside me. This can essentially be used to design appealing presentations which is why it is the best laptop for presentations.
The storage capacity of the device is 128 GB but a variant with 256 GB of storage is also available. The choice of storage usually depends on the type of your use but I personally recommend 256GB because having more never hurts.
Some of the shortcomings that I noticed were the lack of HDMI or VGA port, which means, you would have to get a USB-C connector or find a Bluetooth projector. Secondly, the stand that supports the tablet in laptop mood is not that strong. However, both of these problems can be worked around, so they should not be seen as deal-breakers.
2. Dell XPS 9370- Display That Leaves an Impression
- Quality display
- Extra-ordinary specifications
- Light and good-looking design
- Thunderbolt 3 for connectivity
- Not vulnerable to scratches
Well, you have prepared a really mind-blowing presentation but only to find out that the display of your laptop is not doing the justice to it. It can be heart-breaking. So, in order to make sure you never find yourself in such a situation, we have come up with Dell XPS, a device with a display that is not short of a treat.
The device uses an HD Infinity Edge touch screen that provides 4K resolution and a sharp display. On top of it, the device has a high screen-to-body ratio which makes it an almost bezel-less device. To cut it short, the display of the device would never betray you. In fact, it would have the client overlook your shortcoming by over-shadowing those mistakes.
Moving on, the device is just as good as its display in the other aspects as well. It uses an Intel corei7 processor which is one of the fastest chips available. Furthermore, it features 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD for storage. All of these make the device extremely powerful and efficient that never disappoints with its performance.
Another feature to consider while selecting the best realtor’s laptop is the thickness and weight it. Real estate agents have to carry their laptops all the time and unnecessarily heavy laptops would cause a huge deal of problems. However, lucky for us, Dell also considered it and made it into a really thin and light-weight device.
The battery of the device is a decent one and can provide a backup of more than 6-7 hours on video playback. Plus, it does not take too long to charge as well which makes it the best laptop for real estate agents.
The only shortcoming that the device has is not with the device itself but with the distributors of it. The accessories that come with it in the package are sometimes not original, although compatible. However, in such cases, you can get a complete refund or get a replacement. So, not that big of an issue.

|Display||Infinity Edge Display|
3. Apple MacBook Pro-Device That Needs No Introduction
- A compact and light-weight device
- Comes with a decent GPU
- Efficient processing chip
- Decent battery back up
- Plenty of connectivity options
Apple is a name to be reckoned with, the company, over the years, have made an unmatchable reputation by consistently delivering quality products. The machine we have at hand is one of such products and has all the features that laptops for realtors should have.
For starters, it is one of the most compact devices that are available in the market. Plus, it weighs around 4 pounds only, making it a light-weight device that can be carried around with ease. Laptops like this are ideal for realtors since most part of their jobs revolve around commuting from one place to another.
Moving on, if we talk about the hardware, it is one of the most efficient devices you can get your hands on. The machine features Intel’s Core i7 processor which is the fastest of the lot. Plus, it is coupled with 16 RAM. This combination enables the laptop to provide a smooth and lag-free performance.
For storage, it has an SSD of 512GB mounted in it, which would be enough for most people. However, in case you want to upgrade it, you can move up to 2TB, which is a massive storage capacity. Furthermore, being the SSD, the hard drive provides an excellent reading and writing speed.
What makes it even more appealing to the realtors is the fact it comes with a Radeon Pro 560x Graphics unit. This GPU is efficient enough to run most modern games at medium graphic settings. However, even if you are not into gaming, you would be amazed by the quality of graphics it brings to the table. Especially, while you are delivering a presentation, it leaves quite an impact on the audience.
Lastly, the device provides up to 10 hours of battery back up which is more than enough for realtors. And, the durability of apple’s batteries is not a hidden fact, you would get a decent life out of it as well.
|Processor||Intel Core i7|
|Display||Radeon Pro 560x|
4. Lenovo ThinkPad X1-Device with Futuristic, Innovative and Practical Design
- Futuristic design
- Can be converted into a tablet
- Equipped with good enough hardware
- Retractable keyboard
Lenovo ThinkPad X1, at first glance, does not look like an extraordinary device. However, when you pay attention to the detail you realize how futuristic and innovative its design really is. The device might seem bulky but it is one of the light-weight devices weighing just around 3 pounds.
The reason I called it a futuristic device is because of its ability to mold in different shapes. You can bend its screen all the way to the back of it and convert the laptop into a tablet. Plus, when you convert into the tablet, the keyboard retracts itself back and makes the bottom plain. Therefore, even if you put the tablet on its back, the keyboard would not come in the way.
Moving on, the laptop features an 8th generation core i7 processing chip that is ranked amongst the fastest chips. This chip along with 8GB of RAM provides a decent enough performance. You would not experience a performance lag even if you run demanding video and photo editing software.
For storage, it comes with a 256GB SSD, which would not be enough for most people. However, you can always upgrade it or attach the SD cards in case you cannot afford the upgrade.
The device has two variants, one which has been mentioned, the other with slightly better specifications. However, the price difference between the two is massive and I cannot get around it. I understand that with the up-gradation of hardware the price ascends as well but not in this manner. Therefore, if you take my recommendation, purchase only the reviewed variant. In case, you want to get better specifications, browse other options.

5. LG Gram Laptop-Best Computer For Real Estate Agents
- Exceptional battery backup
- Ultra-compact and light-weight
- Aesthetically appealing design
- Proven military-grade durability
- Backlit keyboard
LG Gram laptop was launched back in 2018 but taking the feedback of users in consideration the company has upgraded it and reintroduced it in the market. However, the features that made it popular are still intact and as good as they were in the previous model.
If you are an experienced realtor, you must have seen this laptop in the hands of several other realtors. The reason behind its popularity among the real estate agents is its compact and light-weight design. The laptop weighs only 2 pounds which is the lightest you are ever going to come across. As mentioned before, commuting is the key part of real estate, thus, being light-weight and compact, this device makes an excellent companion.
Besides being light-weight and compact, the device is aesthetically appealing as well. The two-tone interior of the laptop makes it a treat for the eyes. It is simple but decent and elegant that suits the taste of a wide range of audiences.
Moving on, like the design, the hardware of the device does not disappoint as well. It features Intel’s 8th generation processor which has been mentioned several times before. Long story short, it is a decent chip and you would not encounter any problem or whatsoever with it.
The RAM is 16GB, which has quite an impact on the reading and writing speed of the device. The massive RAM allows you to run multiple demanding programs all at once without experiencing any lag or interruption.
When it comes to storage, it has a 256GB SSD, which is not as good as one expects, considering all the other aspects of this laptop. However, you always have the option of upgrading.
The best thing about this device is its battery which is a beast compared to the batteries of other laptops in this price range. It provides back up of around 19-20 hours which is astonishing considering the size of this device. Normally, a compact device like this does not even last 5-6 hours. Therefore, the combination of compact design, excellent hardware and exceptional battery makes it the best realtors laptop.

6. Acer Chromebook Spin-Unorthodox But Effective
- Gorilla glass protection
- High-resolution display
- Versatile and stylish design
- Compact and light-weight
- Comes with a built-in anti-virus
Acer has a reputation of delivering stylish devices in the market and they have lived up to with this device. However, in addition to being stylish, the design is very practical and versatile. It is a convertible device with its hinge allowing 360 degrees of rotation. It means you can convert it into a tablet, tent, or in whatever shape you wish to.
The design of the device comes in handy especially to the realtors who have to prepare and deliver a lot of presentations. When you convert it to the tablet, it almost feels like paper that makes it easy to draw and edit the shapes on presentation. The screen of the device is highly responsive to the pen that comes with it and makes an otherwise tiring and boring task a fun activity.
Moving on, if we talk about the hardware the laptop features Intel’s 8th Gen i5 processor which is decent enough for the activities this device is designed for. Plus, it has 8GB RAM and along with a powerful processor, it provides a smooth and lag-free performance.
The catch is, the software used in it is not Windows but Chrome OS, designed by Google, specifically for this device. It is an android OS which would take some time to adjust when it comes to old-school people. However, the people who are a little bit familiar with android should not have any issues with it.
An interesting fact about this software is that it comes with a built-in antivirus which is an updated version. Usually, in most laptops, you would have to purchase this software separately and these can cost a lot. So, it is a plus point along with many other features that this device offers.
Lastly, the device provides 2K resolution and the videos of the property shown on it make quite an impact on clients. The display shows more detail than an ordinary laptop which helps the client to understand the property being shown in better manners. And, this display has gorilla glass protection which is another plus because it increases the durability of the screen.

7. Apple MacBook Air-Old But Good Enough To Get The Job Done
- 12 hours of battery backup
- Efficient connectivity ports
- Compact and durable design
- Good enough processor and RAM
- Good looking design
Apple is a known brand and once a user gets hooked to its devices there is no going back. The people that own Apple’s device mostly opt for its laptop because these devices form a great synergy. This product is for those who are looking for an affordable laptop manufactured by Apple.
The device is ideal for realtors because of its compact size and light-weight that makes it convenient to carry around. Plus, the design of the laptop is pretty durable and can withstand slight wear and tear that excessive commuting can offer.
Moving on, being a slightly older model, released back in 2017, it features a 5th generation core i5 processor. Although it is a slightly older chip, it is still a good enough process for every software it is intended for. Software like MS office, Illustrator, and Photoshop run lag and glitch-free on this device and these are software realtors usually use.
As for the RAM, it is 8GB which is more than enough to read and write the data a realtor needs. The storage though is a bit of a disappointment is only about 128GB which would not be enough for most people. However, you can always have it upgraded, so it is nothing you cannot workaround.
For connectivity, the device has two USB 3 ports, Thunderbolt 2 ports, MagSafe 2 power, and an SDXC card slot. All of these ports rank themselves amongst the fastest connectivity ports and provide a really smooth and efficient performance.
The device uses Lithium metal batteries that provide that backup of around 11 hours. It is long enough to last all day even if you forget to bring a charger with you.
Another area where Apple has always excelled is its display. The unit has Intel HD Graphics 6000 as its graphics and video support. This card, although its not too powerful, still provides an excellent display quality. The 4k Video runs smoothly and without any glitch or whatsoever. This display quality is ideal for realtors who often present videos of the properties to their clients.

8. Dell XPS 12-Cheap Laptop For Realtors With All Required Features
- Comes at an affordable price
- Low power demanding processor
- Light-weight and practical design
- Decent battery backup
- Provides excellent value for money
The device at hand is one of the budget devices that suits the realtors who are looking for an affordable yet efficient option. From design to hardware, it checks all the right boxes concerning the needs of realtors.
For starters, the design of the device is compact and weighs only about 2.8 pounds. In a job like real estate, this design comes in handy as it involves a lot of traveling. However, while traveling you need to keep a decent bag for the device because it is not as durable as other devices mentioned in the list.
Another interesting thing about the design of this device is that it comes in two pieces. The keyboard unit attaches with the display unit magnetically and can be dismounted with ease. The removal of the keyboard unit decreases its weight further and more convenient to carry around.
Plus, people with creative minds can use their tablet mood to translate their ideas on software like Illustrator and Photoshop. Normally, you do not have that liberty because the touchpad does not provide as good control as touch screen provides.
Another benefit of this design is that, when you convert it into a tablet, you do not have to worry about where you place the device. Usually, when devices are converted into these modes their keys are pressed and can often cause problems. So, this innovative design works around that problem and allows you to use the tablet without fearing damage to the keyboard unit.
Moving on, the hardware, as mentioned before, does not disappoint with its performance. The processor it features is a slightly unorthodox and relatively new chip. However, if you compare its performance against the 7th to 8th generation of Intel’s Core i5 it fares pretty well. Plus, it has an advantage over them of its low power demand. Therefore, the laptop provides better battery performance compared to the usual core i5 and i7 chips.
As far as the quality of performance is concerned, I assure you it would be as good as Intel’s 8th generation core i5. You would not experience any lag, glitch, or anything of that sort. Along with a powerful chip, it has 8GB RAM, which again is not that great, but for the activities, you are going to use it for it would not present any issues.
For storage, it uses a 256GB SSD drive, which is a medium-sized drive. Some people would find it enough but those who do not can always have it upgraded.
Overall, it is a decent device and comes at an affordable price. Plus, it offers plenty of handy features which makes it the best budget laptop for realtors. In case you are running low on budget, grab it with both hands because it is a good laptop for realtors.

9. Huawei MateBook X Signature Edition-Get Your Laptop To Make a Style Statement
- Stylish and practical design
- Comes with office 365

For those who want their laptop to make a style statement, Huawei Matebook is just the right device. It is arguably one of the most beautiful devices you are going to come across in this price range. Moreover, the hardware of the device complements its design and makes it the best laptop for real estate agents.
Talk about convenience during commuting and this device has got you covered. In addition to being stylish, it is one of the most compact and thin devices that are available in the market. Plus, it weighs only around 2.31lbs which makes it a great travel companion.
Since the body of the device is metallic, it can stand the wear and tear excessive travelling has to offer. In case, you are wondering if the metallic body heats up, the answer is no. The design of the device ensures inflow and outflow and with the help of its efficient fans, keep the device cool.
The device features an 8th generation core i7 processor which is arguably the second-fastest chip after the core i9. In addition to it, there is 8GB RAM incorporated in it that improves the overall performance of the device. For storage, it comes with 512GB of SSD hard-drive which reads and writes the data in a matter of seconds.
Realtors would be delighted to know that this device comes with Office 365 Personal that is an integral requirement of their job. So, you would not have to spend extra bucks to purchase this software.
Display of the device is another most appealing feature. It provides 2K resolution and the bezel-less display serves as the icing on the cake. In most cases, you would not even need to connect the device to projectors because the screen of this device is just as good. The colors are amazing and the details are sharp.
However, in case you must attach the projector there are all the ports you need for it. Both HDMI and VGA ports are available, so you do not have to purchase a converter separately. Just one area where it lags is the number of USB ports that is just two. However, one can work around it. It would be a shame to discredit such a wonderful device merely because of one less than a usual USB port.

10. Newest HP Spectre-Durable Device For The Realtors Living in the Cooler States
- Metallic body and gorilla glass protection
- Excellent hardware
- Responsive pads and fingerprint sensor
- Quality display
Newest HP Spectre is the last device to make it to our list and, like all the laptops mentioned before, it is a total beast when it comes to performance. Design-wise, it is a compact device but weighs around 3 pounds because of its metallic body. Although it is a bit heavier than most of the products mentioned before, it is still convenient and easy to carry around.
In addition to the metallic body, the screen of the laptop has gorilla glass protection. The combination of both makes the laptop pretty durable that can withstand minor degrees of abuse. However, no matter how durable it is, always carry it in a specialized bag to prevent accidental damage.
The device is convertible, meaning it could be turned into a tablet as well. The screen folds all the way to the bottom and locks the keyboard and turns the device into a tablet. However, considering the weight of the product, it would be slightly different to use a device in this mode.
Moving on, the processor featured in this device is 8th Generation core i7 which has been praised several times before. Along with it, you get 16GB RAM, which is more than enough for the realtors. And, the storage is good enough as well standing at 512GB. The point is, all the built-in hardware is extremely efficient, so, you would not have to bother to have it upgraded.
The only shortcoming of this device is the fact that it heats up relatively more than the other laptops. Perhaps, it has to do something with its metallic body and the high-end hardware attached on its board. Anyhow, the point is, it can be quite frustrating and the fans become noise too. However, like always, there is a way around it, and that is the cooling pad. I know it would make travelling bit difficult but it is not a sane decision to leave such a wonderful device merely because of that.
Plus, the people living in cooler states already would not experience any such problem.

Ultimate and Comprehensive Buyer Guide For Best Laptops For Realtors
Laptops for realtors is not a choice but a necessity in order to excel in the field. However, for a device as expensive as a laptop a lot of thought should go into it before making the final decision. In this section, we will outline some of the factors that you should consider and make the decision based on them. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
Size and Weight of the Laptop
The first and foremost thing a realtor must look in a laptop is the size and the weight, understandably why. Most part of the realtor’s job revolves around commuting from one place to another and a heavy laptop does not fit in. Therefore, always consider the weight and size of the device according to your commuting routine and choose the most convenient size for you.
Usually, anything below 3 pounds is good enough but it is even better if it is near to the 2 pounds. So, not the RAM, not the Processor but only the size should be your first priority, and then find the suitable board.
The job of realtors does not usually demand working on high-end software. Most of their work is around making the sheets and delivering the presentation. For such activities, high-end specifications are not required. However, if you have some extra-bucks lying around, it would be wise to spend it to get a better device, specifications-wise.
In case you do not, just get a device that has a processor over core i5 or equivalent and RAM more or equal to 8HB. However, the storage is where you should not compromise because all the documents and presentations can take a lot of space. So, anything below 256GB is not a good option.
Display of the Device
When it comes to the realtor’s laptop, the display of the device is just as important as the processor and RAM. Some will argue why, since most of the presentations are to be delivered via projectors. However, it is not always the case because not every time a big shot client is going to come for whom you have to set up an entire room.
Most of the time, you simply have run by these presentations to regular clients on your laptop screen. In such cases, If the display of the device is not providing enough details it would not leave a good impression. In fact, it would become ambiguous that can slip the client from your grasp.
Therefore, it is important to get a laptop with a decent display that shows accurate colors and sharp details. It should be good that the client gets complete information about the property and does not need to visit the property in person. So, try to get a laptop that provides optimal resolution and preferably has a graphic card because it improves the video quality.
The battery of the Device
In every electronic device, the battery is an integral part. If it is not good enough, it will render the device almost useless. It is even more important in the devices that are to be used by realtors. Imagine yourself showing a property to a client and the battery runs out. Would it be bad? Isn’t it?
Therefore, while purchasing the device always look at the user reviews and find out the backup that a particular device provides. It should be more than at least 8 hours, something that lasts all day with a single complete charging. The point is, it should be as good that you do not have to carry the charger of the laptop around.
