    Acer AC700 Chromebook review

    4  

    You'd be forgiven for not noticing Chromebooks - cloud-connected laptops that Google promised would revolutionise the way we use our PCs. Can Acer turn the tide?

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420s review

    8  

    In a nutshell, the Lenovo ThinkPad T420s is a powerful business portable that's a pleasure to use, but it's not exactly a looker.

    Asus Eee Seashell 1015BX review

    6  

    Continuing the Seashell line, the 1015BX isn't a radical departure from previous generations in terms of looks, but it uses an AMD processor.

    Samsung Series 3 NP300E5A review

    6  

    The Samsung Series 3 NP300E5A sets the standard for budget laptops. It's a solid looker that packs more power than its closest rivals, but does suffer a low quality keyboard.

    Lenovo IdeaPad U260 review

    4  

    The Lenovo IdeaPad U260 is quite a looker. Unusually for Lenovo, known for producing solid black business machines, the U260 is a slim, golden ultraportable that features a head-turning design and a weight of only 1.3kg.

    The new HP Folio 13 is a cross between the classic corporate computer and the modern, ultra-portable PC laptop.

    Don't be put off by the dull, grey styling: Toshiba's Z830-10N Ultrabook is quite a remarkable computer.

    Say hello to the Lenovo ThinkPad X220, a splendid example of the Chinese manufacturer's commitment to powerful business machines.

    Buying this Ultrabook made by a lesser-known brand will save you cash, but does it perform as well as its more famous peers?

    HP ProBook 4535s review

    4  

    The explosion of Ultrabooks has served to expose the swathes of poor quality, bulky and slow laptops that have plagued consumers over the last few years, and the HP ProBook 4535s is one such machine.

    The Acer Aspire 5750 won't win any awards for design or craftsmanship, but with the power and performance on offer, it's hard to ignore for anyone looking for a decent laptop on a budget.

    Samsung's first Ultrabook might get noticed thanks to the friendly price, but can it live up to the Ultrabook moniker?

    Samsung Series 9 review

    Samsung has chosen not to brand its super-thin, quick-to-boot and attractive laptop as an Ultrabook, so why do we love it anyway?

    The HP Mini Beats will offer you basic performance and a pretty decent battery life wrapped up in a chassis that is light, portable and perfect for taking on your travels.

    It isn't the thinnest, but its powerful Core i7 processor, SSD and respectable battery life mean this laptop handles demanding tasks.

    Clad in HP's customary black and silver, the £600 HP Pavilion dv6-6b50sa is an affordable, feature-packed media laptop.

    Samsung Series 7 Gamer review

    Samsung Series 7 Gamer review

    7  

    Gaming laptops such as the Samsung Series 7 Gamer can be a funny old breed. The idea of a portable PC powerful enough to play the latest games certainly appeals. But the reality is often a system that, due to its high-powered components, is bulky, heavy and has an incredibly short battery life. So is the Samsung NP700G7A any different?

    With the draw of HP's premium Envy range and Dr Dre's urban cool Beats brand, the HP Envy 14 Spectre will be hard to ignore.

    The Compaq Presario CQ57-366SA won't win any awards for its looks, but does offer the things we look for in a budget laptop.

    Toshiba Qosmio F750 review

    8  

    Toshiba's Qosmio range was the first to bring us glasses-free 3D, and we were so impressed with the X770 that we awarded it 4.5 stars. The Qosmio F750 continues the tradition, albeit with a couple of drawbacks.

    It's not often that a laptop will get everything right when it comes to media playing but the HP Pavilion dv7-6b51ea is different, and ticks all the boxes required to make a fantastic media centre laptop.

    Packard Bell EasyNote TS11 review

    The Packard Bell EasyNote range might not be as well known as Dell's Inspiron or HP's Pavilion brands, but it has established itself as a home for mid-level laptops at budget-level prices.

    HP dm4-3000ea Beats Edition review

    HP's Pavilion range was never going to offer the same 'wow factor' as its premium Envy line and we couldn't pick out its previous dm4 Pavilion in a line up. But HP's new dm4-3000ea Pavilion Beats Edition is far from anonymous.

    If you're after a machine to play Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Modern Warfare 3, look no further. The Asus G74S is a mammoth gaming laptop, which has the power to play all the latest titles.

    Acer TravelMate 8481T review

    When it comes to battery life, Acer's TravelMate 8481T is the laptop to beat. It's not all that surprising when you see the battery protruding from the back of the chassis, practically doubling the breadth of the machine.
