Desirable laptops

Okay, this may be ambitious, but if you are really serious about this Valentine's business, it may be that you can stretch to a whole PC.

Asus Eee PC

And some of the most desirable laptops on the market are, handily, not all that expensive. The Asus Eee PC is (a) a massive hit and (b) the only laptop we've ever seen receive spontaneous female attention in a high-street branch of PC World.

An ultra-cheap, ultra-portable PC with a linux-based operating system and a slick-looking 7in display, the Asus Eee PC 701 costs only £220.

Dell Inspiron 1525

Dell is getting in on the slimline laptops act with the Inspiron 1520 – a model some 30 percent daintier than previous Inspirons. Processor options run from an Intel Celeron M to a T7215 paired with up to 2GB of RAM. You get a 15.4in display and, depending on your needs, can add a webcam and a multi-card reader.

Vodafone's 3G wireless broadband comes as part of the deal. Click here for the best price on a Dell Inspiron 1525, which starts from £339.

MacBook Air

It's not the highest specified laptop out there; it may not even live up to its claim of being the world's slimmest laptop, but it's hard to argue with the sleek lines and great-looking design of the Apple MacBook Air - the latest must-have from cult-inspiring Apple. Although you may balk at the £1,199 starting price.

Apple iMac

With a whopping great screen on which to get all creative in GarageBand or Photoshop, the Apple iMac is perhaps the ultimate designer PC. The 24in LCD flatscreen is more than a display – it also contains the rest of the iMac, which means no bulky tower to knock your knees against as you sit in your study idling playing DVDs and adding to your iTunes library.
