6 top laptops for less than £699


Toshiba Tecra A10-16E

A very usable laptop, but performance is poor, as is portability

The Toshiba Tecra A10-16E targets corporate users, offering great build quality and comfortable controls that make it an ideal machine for everyday business use.

Unlike many consumer laptops, the Toshiba features a standard 15.4-inch TFT screen. The matt finish is a lot better when used out and about, as it doesn't highlight reflections or fingerprints, and it's also fine when used near a window or directly under a light.

It doesn't offer colours quite so vibrant as its rivals, but it's still one of the brightest panels, making it an excellent choice for home and office work
