And that they certainly could (inspire a heart attack... duh); the eight new colours in Dell's latest Inspiron range of 15.4in and 17in laptops vary from shocking pink, right through to bright yellow - and, at 3kg, could cause considerable huff and puff during transportation.

But we like these laptops. Pitched at the consumer market, and with the option of Blu-ray and biometric fingerprint security, these 'portables' are the perfect fashion accessory. There's a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo and AMD Turion 64 X2 chips to choose from, decent connectivity options, Vista AND an eight-and-a-half hour battery life - all from as little as £549 inc VAT.
