A laptop, also known as a notebook, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right laptop, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving 'mobile' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you laptop mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You'll work faster because you can view more information at once and it's great for multimedia!

Ultrabooks may be the current head-turners amongst PC notebooks, but they always come with a premium that is indirectly proportional to their size. Asus’ S56CA illustrates this well. With many of the same components as recent Ultrabooks we have tested, th...

Bottom line As a very recent release, the S56CA unsurprisingly runs Windows 8, which we’ve noted before isn’t ideal for a device without a touchscreen such as this. So a third-party widget to reinstate the Start button might be essential if you want to continue the...
