This year's nominations for the 2005 awards for BEST LAPTOP are:

Sony Vaio VGN-T2XP
Not so much a re-design, more a refresh of an original concept but when it's this good, why worry?

Toshiba Qosmio G20
An all-in-one home entertainment unit that is both stylish and portable

Acer Ferrari 4000
A great new look and style comes wrapped in the world's first carbon-fibre laptop casing

HP Compaq NX6125
HP releases its first business-focused Turion and manages to raise the budget notebook benchmark

Apple 15in PowerBook
Apples are a religion and lifestyle statement, you either want one and can pay its price tag or you can't. If you can, you'll get a great machine
