Here's PC Advisor's guide to the best five mini-laptops on the market.
Mini laptops have been one of the biggest success stories of the year. Powered by one of two low-power processors, Intel's Atom or VIA's C7, these inexpensive portables offer everything you need to surf the web and send email.
With screens of around 10in or less and solid-state disks (SSDs) in place of hard disks, mini laptops are lightweight and robust.
The trade-off is limited storage space and onboard graphics and audio. This will be fine for normal, everyday use, but gamers won't be able to play advanced titles. For Best Buy products in six great categories, visit PC Advisor's Christmas 2008 Buyers' Guide.
