    "When I'm revising, I don’t have to mess around with notes scattered everywhere, the touchscreen makes it easy"

    Alastair studies chemistry at the University of Bradford. He's reviewing a collection of products that are the best all rounders: the HP Envy Sleekbook touchscreen laptop, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and a WD hard drive that's accessible wirelessly from anywhere.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

    There's a lot to love about the stylish Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (not least that this one comes in a slinky shade of red). Its slim and light body means you'll barely notice it in your bag, so it’s an ideal companion for note-taking in lectures - or a spot of revision in the garden. And, of course, it's got you covered for entertainment when you’re not working.

    HP Envy Sleekbook

    Pack the power of a desktop into a laptop and this ultraportable is what you get. It's really lightweight, making it just as good for working at home or on the move, and the touchscreen controls give you added flexibility.
