Acer Aspire 4810T

Acer's laptops will never win awards for stunning beauty or ground breaking design, but they are are always sturdy, dependable and offer great value for money.

Apple made much of the introduction of the uni-body aluminium construction of its MacBook Pro, but some months in it does seem worthy of the fuss.

Dell Adamo XPS Price: (TBC)

The thought of Dell trying to take on Apple at high design may seem on the face of it completely absurd but once you've picked up and held the Adamo you'll change your tune pretty quickly.

However, it's not the Adamo we're recommending but the Adamo XPS its ultra-thin sibling that's available soon.

If you've ever wondered how thin a laptop can go then you'll gawp at the 9.99mm height of the Adamo XPS. Any thinner and it would probably be too sharp to pick up safely.
