    Compaq Presario CQ57-366SA review

    6  

    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

    8  

    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

    8  

    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

    6  

    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.

    The wait for the flurry of Intel ultrabooks is over, and the Lenovo IdeaPad U300S is among the latest super thin and light Windows laptops to come to the fore.

    Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U review

    8  

    If you wanted a stylishly light and powerful Toshiba laptop, you would immediately look to the Portege R830. That is, until you came across the £999 Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U - Toshiba's shiny entry into the ultrabook market that will go up against the Acer Aspire S3, Asus Zenbook UX21 and MacBook Air.

    Samsung are one of the best laptop manufacturers around, but is this mid-range Core i5 laptop more style over substance?

    Samsung Series 3 review

    This AMD-powered PC laptop uses less powerful components than older siblings the Samsung Series 7 and Series 9, but comes in at half the cost too, making it better suited to families and users with more basic needs

    Acer Aspire 5749 review

    8  

    Keeping up with Acer is some task. The Taiwanese company has come of age and is now one of the laptop manufacturers to be reckoned with. Its Aspire 5749 is another fine example of advanced features in a budget package.
