If you're after a laptop that's not just small enough to carry with you but also matches your outfit then the Logiq 6-5032 could be just the model for you.

The Logiq 6-5032 we reviewed was decked out with a metallic blue finish, but if that doesn't tickle your fancy it's also available in white, black or even pink.

The Logiq 6-5032 has a very reasonable specification for the money, bundling a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 with an impressive 2GB of RAM, which helped it achieve a relatively high WorldBench score of 69.

Inside is a capacious 250GB hard drive, which is generous for an ultraportable. The Logiq 6-5032 has an internal DVD writer too. The screen stretches to 12.1in and runs at the near-standard 1,280x800 resolution.

It's a glossy display, so you get great colour reproduction but it's at the expense of increased reflectivity which can make the Logiq 6-5032 difficult to work on if there are bright lights behind you.

The Logiq 6-5032's keyboard makes good use of the space available, with good sized keys and the touchpad is decent too.

We wouldn't expect an ultraportable to be up to running the latest games, and in this respect there are no surprises in the case of the Logiq 6-5032. Its integrated Sis Mirage 3+ graphics chip struggled all the way through the demanding Fear test and managed only to achieve a solitary 1 frame per second (fps).

The Logiq 6-5032 isn't exactly handbag-sized and it is towards the larger end of the scale when it comes to ultraportables, but it's still small enough to carry with you on the move.

Unfortunately, you'll have to plan you route carefully to take in sufficient stops for recharging, as the Logiq 6-5032's battery life is pretty poor. It only managed to hold out just over an hour at 73 minutes when running our strenuous test. This really isn't very good.

OUR VERDICT

The Logiq 6-5032 offers good performance for the money, provided you're willing to forego gaming, and it has a good specification. It's let down severely when it comes to battery life, however, so it's not ideal if you need to spend a large amount of time away from mains power.
