10. Packard Bell EasyNote TS11
A good, all-round laptop with an attractive 15.6-inch screen for watching video. The dual-core i3 processor provides all the power you need for most routine computing tasks, and it's got plenty of memory and hard disk space for storing all your music, photos and videos. It's a bit heavy, and battery life is a relatively modest four hours, but it's good for the price.
