Laptops are sometimes overlooked in the hardware market as smartphones and tablets clamour for attention.
However, there is plenty of innovation and excellence in this area of the market, and numerous vendors are competing for market share by releasing ever more functional and beautiful devices.
To recognise this, and with Christmas fast approaching, V3 has put together a run-down of some of the best laptops released this year to give you an idea of what to get the loved one in your life, or yourself.
10. Fujitsu Lifebook T904
Fujitsu's first convertible ultrabook, the Lifebook T904, has a display that twists round on a hinge allowing multiple viewing angles.
The Lifebook T904 is powered by Intel's latest Haswell chips up to Core i7, running Windows 8.1 Pro with a maximum of 8GB of RAM, so it has plenty of power for daily activities.
It also has a removable four-cell lithium polymer battery that's good for approximately 8.5 hours, so you can take a spare for events or long-haul flights, for example, without worrying too much about running out of power.
The thin aluminium design can transform from a standard clamshell laptop, and the Fujitsu Lifebook T904 is a great productivity machine for those on the go.
