Chromebooks represent a new type of laptop that's designed to be simple. Here's our round-up of all the models that we've reviewed.

With the gift-buying season well and truly in full swing, it's a great time to buy a new computer and, in particular, a new hybrid-type Ultrabook that runs Windows 8. The new hybrids that we've reviewed recently offer touchscreen input in addition to...

If you want a powerful laptop so that you can breeze through your school work, then one equipped with an Intel Core i7 CPU, lots of RAM, a discrete graphics card and a large hard drive is a good idea.
The Ultrabook has been hatched in an effort to make thin and light computers more prominent in the marketplace. It's an initiative by Intel that challenges hardware companies to come up with MacBook Air-like designs for Windows users and so far there...

For many people, a business laptop can be practically any laptop as long as its reasonably fast and has enough ports. However, bona fide business laptops have a lot more to them than typical mainstream laptops.
