Dell XPS T450 Value Multimedia System - pound;980.

This system is good value for money. You get a fast Pentium III processor, Windows 98 operating system, a modem, DVD drive, software and useful extras such as a colour printer. Popular with children for computer games.

Acer TravelMate 332T - pound;1,499

Acer's range of "sub-notebook" portable computers, weighing only 1.8kg, have proved popular with schools and business executives alike.

Apple iMac - from pound;632

The trendy choice. It comes in five colours and its all-in-one design makes it reasonably portable. It is also fast and well-equipped (modem, CD-Rom drive).

The cheapest laptop offered by Viglen. It has a built-in CD-Rom and floppy disk drive but weighs 3.2kg. Again, popular with schools and those who want to use a computer wherever they are.
