Top 12 laptops for less than £599

Rock Pegasus 210

A stylish and highly portable laptop, but unfortunately lacking in performance

The Rock Pegasus 210 (£599 inc. VAT) is a strong and stylish ultraportable which chooses to sacrifice power and performance for optimum mobility.

The 12.1-inch 1280 x 800-pixel screen provides bright and colourful images and is great for office work. However, it features a Super- TFT covering which can cause distracting reflections in changing light conditions.

The keyboard is small, and those with large hands may struggle at first. However, the keys move smoothly and accurately and feel solid to the touch. The touchpad is also quite small and it might be worth packing an external mouse in your laptop bag.

Unfortunately, the external quality is not mirrored internally. The outdated Intel GMA 950 graphics card is the least powerful variant here and performance scores drop accordingly. While basic image editing shouldn't prove a problem, gaming is not an option and only the lightest of multimedia use is possible.
