The Consumer Electronics Show marks the launch, or at least announcement, of thousands of devices and products. These range from activity trackers and smartphones to TVs and laptops, with all sorts in between.

This year's show saw several laptops announced from the likes of Lenovo, HP, Acer and others so we have rounded up the best of the bunch here.

You'll find a brief summary of each laptop and we will be adding any links to our first impressions as we get our hands and eyes on them. Here are the best laptops of CES 2016.

Pocket-lintLG Gram 15-7

LG announced the LG Gram 15 laptop at CES 2016, which looks rather like Apple's MacBook. It joins the 14-inch model launched at the end of last year and brings with it a 15.6-inch display and a magnesium alloy body.

An Intel Core i5 or i7 processor powers the ultra-slim laptop that measures just 16.7mm and hits the scales at 980g. A Full HD IPS display is on board too and it runs on Windows 10 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. LG has said it is coming soon but details as to when and how much have yet to be revealed.

Samsung announced the Galaxy TabPro S at CES 2016, looking to take on the likes of Microsoft, Lenovo and Apple with a portable device that doubles as a laptop and tablet in one.

The Galaxy TabPro S is a Windows 10 2-in-1 device that is not only super light, but super slim too. It has a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 Super AMOLED display, a 10.5-hour battery life and it runs on a 6th gen Intel Core M dual-core processor.

Samsung also announced two additions to its Notebook 9 series at CES 2016 including a 15-inch and 13.3-inch laptop. Both devices run on Windows 10 and can be specified with up to Intel Core i7 processors.

The smaller-screened device measures 13.4mm slim and hits the scales at under a kilo, while the larger model has a thickness of 14.5mm and a weight of 1.29kg. Both have Full HD displays and come in silver and pink, while the 15-incher also adds USB Type-C to the party. The Notebook 9 series will be available in select markets from early 2016, but not the UK.

The Lenovo Yoga 900S spearheads the company's 2016 line-up with its pencil-thin 12.8mm build that weighs just shy of a kilo. It sports a 12-inch QHD display, 10.5-hour battery life and it features a 360-degree watchband hinge, allowing you to flip the screen over for a Windows 10 tablet.

There's a full keyboard on board, along with an optional active pen stylus. The Yoga 900S will ship in March 2016, priced from $1099 in the US.

HP announced several laptops at CES 2016 including the Spectre x360 family with lots of exciting features for this year including a 4K display, OLED, Bang & Olufsen audio and a larger 15-inch model.

The 13.3-inch model returns with an OLED Quad HD display option, meaning a 50g lighter device and a higher colour gamut. The 15.6-inch model is new for 2016 and comes with a 4K display, 15.9mm slim body and a 9.5-hour battery life. The 15.6-inch Spectre x360 will start at £1000 this month, while the 13.3-inch OLED model will be available in spring but pricing has yet to be announced.

Along with the HP Spectre x360 refresh, HP also announced the EliteBook 1040 and the EliteBook Folio. It is the latter that really caught our eye however, despite being business focused.

The EliteBook Folio is pitched as the world's thinnest and lightest business class notebook. It is 12.4mm thin, weighs less than a kilo and offers a battery life up to 10 hours. There is also a 4K display on board, all for a starting price of $999 in March.

Pocket-lintAcer Switch 12 S

The Acer Aspire Switch 12 S is a 2-in-1 notebook that features the company's Snap Hinge Gold that is said to support fast data streaming between the tablet and keyboard for a quick connection, while the Acer ExoAmp antenna is claimed to offer reliable Wi-Fi.

The anodised aluminium body is just 7.85mm thin and the latest 6th Generation Intel Core M processors are under the hood, while USB Type-C supports fast data transfers. Users can choose between a 4K or Full HD display, both protected by Gorilla Glass 4, and prices start at $999.99 in North America and €1199 in Europe from February.

Pocket-lintAcer Chromebook 11

Acer's latest Chromebook - designation CB3-131 - has an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display, with the company's anti-glare technology. It offers up to nine hours of battery life and can be spec'ed with either 2GB or 4GB of memory to add to the Intel Celeron quad-core processor, and either 16GB or 32GB of internal flash storage.

However, it's biggest draw is the super slim form factor. It measures just 18.6mm so has a small footprint and is 1.1kg, making it light enough to sling in a backpack comfortably. With different specifications being available, the new Acer Chromebook 11 series starts at $179.99 in the US and will be available from February. UK prices are yet to be revealed.
