Here at Creative Bloq, we test laptops, PCs, Macs and workstations on their value as well as their specs and computing power. We like to rate products in context of the broader market, the tech they offer and the price being asked. 

But of course, we also test the performance and design of each computer and device, and this can include consistent testing of battery life, screen colour balancing and CPU performance. Below are the specifics on how we review laptops, desktop PCs and workstations. For our more general guidelines for reviews, see how we test and review.
