About RMIT

In this feature we look at some of the coolest notebooks on the market. In other words, notebooks that your friends will be envious of.

These notebooks don't make up the larger part of the market mainly because they are very expensive and most people can do without a lot of the fancy features.

We tested some impressive LCD screen sizes, features such as integrated DVD burners and very quick processors translating to what users demand from the modern PC system.

We didn't want to end just there. We wanted to have a look at notebooks that take advantage of the latest technology such as wireless, biometrics, and whatever else makes life easier. We received submissions from Apple, Acer, AOpen, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, and Sony.
