As with all Acers there's loads of ports and functions including WIFI, 3 USBs, a multi-in-one Memory Card reader, digital speakers and a built in webcam; it doesn't have bluetooth but that doesn't matter as other features more than make up for it. Whether you're a professional who is always on the go, a student who's most at home in the library or someone who just loves pink, the Aspire One D255 is certainly the laptop for you!

Gamers should flock to this baby, especially if you're always on the go- don't let the beastly performance put you off, it's actually a really portable and user friendly netbook. It's also great for high end users, or anyone that wants to have a bit of fun!

The Alienware M15x is the best of the best when it comes to 15" laptops. It has enough power to send a rocket into orbit and graphics of such quality they are almost real- and that's just the basic spec! You're looking at a machine that maxes out 8GB of RAM, makes minced meat of Intel's i7 processor and doesn't flinch at ATI's 1GB HD5730; that's the top end spec, and if you need more, consider a military super computer. With 5.1 surround sound, a backlit keyboard and an HD screen, the M15x is at its best when dominating games, playing DVDs and it can also do mundane tasks like messing around with spreadsheets (much to its annoyance!). It's available in red, silver or black and is just like a living, breathing thing, crouched and ready to attack. So if you're a hardcore gamer or heavy high end user, or just want to see jaws drop wherever you go, prepare to unleash the beast!

Before you read any further, just remember the previously mentioned spec is amazing and would do most brands proud. The upgrades on the M17x however are just colossal and plain insane! Alienware will happily throw the latest Intel i7 processor your way, as well as 8GB of RAM and DUAL ATI graphics cards (yes, 2!). What this means is that you'll have more power than an atom bomb and will be able to dominate any game that comes your way; you'd be forgiven for thinking you were actually there in real life. Ever seen Avatar? The graphics are that real! Like all the other Alienware laptops, the M17x is also great for heavy users and it's quite a sensible solution if you think about it carefully. Alternatively keep it at face value and game like there's no tomorrow!
