Windows 7 launches tomorrow, and Microsoft has been showing off its new OS on a range of laptops and desktops at a swanky London launch.

Although most of the kit isn't brand-spanking-new, it was our first opportunity to get hands-on with many of the new models. First up is the Sony Vaio L11S1E/S, a high-definition all-in-one. With its 3GHz Intel Core Duo E8400 chip, the Vaio's multi-touch touchscreen is supersnappy.

We got our first glimpse of Windows 7 on the Toshiba Satellite T130 too. The T series charge your gadgets while they sleep, and boast 11 hours of battery life. We also saw the HP Pavilion dm3. The keyboard is well-spaced and easy to use.

PC World and Currys parent company DSGi has also announced a whopping £150 off assorted Toshiba and Dell laptops. Anyone trading in their old PC gets £100 off a Windows 7 machine.

Click continue for more windows on the world of Windows 7, including prices for the new hardware.

Look how skinny the T130 is. Depending on configuration, the T series starts around £450.

The HP Pavilion DM3. It's this thin partly because it has no optical drive. It'll set you back around £470.
