What is it? As Kate Moss is to fashion, the Muramasa is to laptops. At 17mm and less than 1.5kg, it's the thinnest and lightest model in the world.

What does it do? Who cares? Like big-ticket mobile phones, ultra-light laptops sell on style, not ability. From sleek magnesium case to jet-black hi-res screen, it's the last word in tech-credibility. With one of these under your arm, you'll never be upstaged in a pitch meeting again. But on those rare occasions when you actually want to use it, the Muramasa (named after a Samurai warrior) doesn't disappoint. With a 600MHz chip, 128Mb RAM and 20Gb hard disk, it's a respectable performer.

What's the competition? Every PC manufacturer does laptops, but few take the high-end, style-conscious buyer as seriously as Sharp. Only Sony's Vaio range can rival the Muramasa.

Where can I get it? It's yours for pounds 1,875 inc VAT, from all good stores now.
