If you are still to enter the 'high definition era' then Dell’s new competitively-priced, colourful Inspiron 1525 laptop range might well tempt you in.

Dell’s new laptop not only comes in a number of colours (including a strangely bilious yellow) but also includes a Blu-ray player, priced at a mere £329.

The Inspiron also features a 15.4-inch high definition wide aspect display with 720p resolution. And, should you have a decent high definition telly, you can plug the laptop into that via a HDMI port.

Cheap as chips, but we’ll pass on that garish yellow thanks Dell.
