The world's most extreme laptops

Some laptops will give you a hernia, while others will fit in a coat pocket. Some cost a day's pay--others, half a year's. Here are the outliers of the notebook world.

The Most Expensive



Name: Ego Bentley

Price: $19,943

Availability: Now

Extreme spec: The killer price tag

Reasons to love it: Two years ago we heard about the so-called million-dollar laptop from Luvaglio. But my choice for laptop extravagance is the Ego Bentley because, unlike the Luvaglio, it seems to exist--and that gets high points in my book.

For only $19,943, you could be the owner of a fashionable laptop encased in a handbag, made especially by Ego Lifestyle for car manufacturer Bentley. Each Bentley laptop is handmade and features titanium chrome detailing, fine leather, crossover hand stitching, and the "classic Bentley knurling effect on the handle." (Translation: The handle is bumpy instead of smooth.) If you don't like what you see on the sales floor, you can have your Bentley crafted to suit your own ego.

The Bentley has a 12-inch screen, a 160GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM, a Mobile AMD Turion 64 processor, three USB ports, S-Video out, a VGA port, a Webcam, a DVD-RW drive, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi; its total weight is nearly 6 pounds.

For the money, you would think that the Bentley's specs would be a little flashier, and that it might weigh a little less. But hey, nearly 20 grand is a small price to pay for classic knurling, right?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
