3G/UMTS module; Docking station port; eSATA/USB combo; Good battery runtime; Solid manufacturing

Contrast poor display; Fan almost always on

The Lenovo ThinkPad L420 has the same CPU and similar equipment. Less expensive and with a slightly weaker CPU, but with a dedicated Nvidia graphics: the TravelMate 5760G.

Acer TravelMate 6592


This is an affordable notebook that should suit anyone looking for a capable, mostly desk-bound, system.

Although it comes with a strong variety of connections and good screen performance, the Acer TravelMate 6592 (831G08Mn) is let down by a relatively small hard drive.

Good battery life, Centrino Pro features, High resolution screen

This is an affordable notebook that should suit anyone looking for a capable, mostly desk-bound system. The webcam is a nice extra, while fingerprint recognition is fast becoming a 'must have' feature for business users.
