Up until now the vast majority of models available have favoured the smaller 11.6-inch screen size, which is perfect for portability but can be a […]
Asus N550JV review: high-performance midrange laptop, with an abominable touchscreen display and slow hard disk
Price: 800 Rating: 7 Asus laptops have come a long way since the Eee PC series, which effectively pioneered the netbook category in 2007. Emboldened by that success, Asus subsequently pitched into the mainstream Microsoft mêlée where it is now just another maker of carbon-copied Windows laptops. The Asus N550JV tries to be a little […]

HP Envy 15 x360 15-u000na review: 15in Windows laptop folds to become a big fat Windows tablet with a terrible display. But why?
Price: 600 Rating: 5 HP is hedging its bets with this laptop, literally making it flexible enough to broaden its appeal. It’s added folding tricks that let it fold back on itself, so where a normal laptop has a display that will hinge backward just beyond the vertical, the lid on the Envy 15 x360 […]
Price: 1200 Rating: 7 It’s tempting to dismiss the 4K display of Toshiba’s new P50T-B laptops as simply being a bit of a gimmick – especially given the graphical limitations of Windows itself.

Dell XPS 15 review: thin and light Ultrabook with amazing Quad HD display takes on (and beats) the MacBook Pro
Price: 1499 Rating: 8 It might not have the eye-catching convertible design of its stablemate, the flipping-screen Dell XPS 12, but the 3200 x 1800 display of the latest version of the Dell XPS 15 ensures that it provides plenty of visual appeal of its own. With a weight of just 2.01 kg, it’s also […]

Toshiba Kira-101 review: Windows Ultrabook with 13in touchscreen that has good overall speed and a high-resolution display
Price: £1,299 inc VAT Rating: 8 By its own admission, Toshiba is quite happy to focus on the ‘value’ end of the market and its recently unveiled spring line-up did feature a preponderance of budget 15-inch and 17-inch laptops.

Toshiba Portégé R30-A-14K review: a £900 laptop with relatively lightweight design, long-lasting battery and disappointing display
Price: �900 inc VAT Rating: 7 Toshiba tends to take its time when it comes to new fads like Ultrabooks, or even updating its laptops with the latest Haswell processors. True to form, its Portégé R30 is a distinctly unassuming mid-range laptop with a modest specification and little in the way of eye-catching features. See […]
