With its sleek aluminum styling and attractive range of colors, the K43SJ29i5 is sure to turn some heads. Add a second generation Intel Core i5-2510M processor and an NVIDIA GT520 GPU and you’ve got a decent basic workhorse. The weird model name is something of a mystery that we've not yet solved though.

Dell - Hall 6, Booth 6A20
The Dell XPS 14z is so small and slim it could almost pass for an Ultrabook. In fact one of its biggest selling points was that it has a 13-inch form factor, while packing a 14-inch (1366 x 768 pixels) screen. This notebook was previously exclusive to the Chinese market but Dell changed its marketing strategy to allow for a local release in Singapore too.
