( dpa ) - Finding a laptop for as little as 600 euros (944 dollars) for everyday use is not as difficult as one would imagine, according to a test of 10 laptops conducted by German magazine Computer Bild.

All the computers tested cost less than 660 euros. The test showed that cheaper computers can compete with more expensive laptops.

If the cheaper computer has a dual-core processor, then the differences between the low end and high end models are barely noticeable.

Only when it comes to operating games with complicated 3-D graphics do the cheaper computers reach their limits.
