The new HP Spectre x360 is an excellent laptop with a lot to offer in a small package, but it's only incrementally better than the previous model, and leaves out some useful features.
The Toshiba NB550D isn't exactly beautiful, but its dual-core AMD processor delivers great performance for a netbook. Add in beefy speakers from Harman Kardon and a good keyboard, and you've got a well-rounded netbook.
The Samsung Series 5 ultrabook offers the sort of clean, mature design you'd expect to see in a big city boardroom. Sadly though, it doesn't offer enough processor performance or screen resolution to warrant its relatively high price.
The Sony Vaio E Series 17 offers decent overall performance, along with a Full HD screen and a Blu-ray player. Nearly every part is configurable when you buy it so you can opt for lesser specs if you can't afford this top model.
The new Samsung Series 9 may be on the pricey side, but it draws excellent performance from the latest Intel chip inside the gorgeous, slim body, making it perfect for intense work on the go.
Offering a good-looking design and far better performance than you might expect for the price, the 15.6-inch Lenovo Essential B570 is one of the best cheap laptops on the market.
The Asus Eee PC X101CH may be slim and light, but it fails to impress in nearly every other respect. Its relatively cheap price tag doesn't justify poor processor performance and an unimpressive screen.
The HP Envy 4 Ultrabook is slim, stylish and affordable, but it's sadly let down by poor performance from an outdated processor and a trackpad that's just plain unpleasant.
If you just want a good machine without having to spend a fortune, then you can't go far wrong with the Samsung R60. It could do better at games, but other than that it's a pretty good all rounder with a bargain price tag
The Acer Aspire Timeline U M3 is a slim and portable machine that packs in Nvidia's latest graphics card, providing some serious gaming performance. It doesn't have a great screen but it's definitely one to consider for gaming on the go.
It does nothing to separate itself from the rest of the 10.1-inch netbook herd, but the HP Mini 210-1156sa is still a well-designed machine. Shame about the iffy battery life, though.
The 13.3-inch Samsung Q330 backs up its stunning performance with looks to match. As a result, we think it's a great option if you're looking for a laptop to use on the move.
The 13.3-inch Dell Latitude E4310 has plenty of grunt under the bonnet, but it's a little too big and bulky for our liking. It's a fairly speedy machine, but does that justify the asking price?
The 14-inch Toshiba Tecra R840-11E is a good option if you need a laptop for work purposes. It has a great keyboard, plenty of grunt, and it's small and light enough to comfortably carry around.
The L300 may be relatively heavy and suffer when it comes to battery life, but its good build quality and low price tag make it an attractive option for those after a stay-at-home laptop
The 17.3-inch Toshiba Satellite C670D-108 is attractively priced, with an excellent screen and comfortable keyboard. But our configuration, the C670D-108, is hamstrung by its sluggish AMD E-350 CPU.
This Apple MacBook offers specs that are almost on a par with those of the MacBook Pro, for significantly less money. You won't get all of the Pro-level features, but, if you can live without those, it's worth a look
HP says this laptop is the pinnacle of computing luxury, and we're inclined to agree. It'll cost you dearly, but the Envy 17 offers great design and performance
