With a powerful nVidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics card in place, the MSI GX700 offers great 3D performance, and we had no trouble running the most demanding of games.

Novatech is a UK-based company and offers a wide range of laptops for both consumer and corporate buyers. The X60R Pro is an affordable entry-level gaming system, but it’s an anonymous product that fails to stand out from the crowd. The 3.2kg chassis is the largest in this group test.

With a conservative design, comfortable interface and capable multimedia abilities, the Fujitsu Siemens (FSC) Amilo Pi 3540 is suitable for both business users and regular consumers alike.
