You would be tempted to do something like this. Laptop Computers ( main header) dell laptop computers sony laptop computers apple laptop computers hewlitt packard laptop computers acer laptop computers lenovo laptop computers Do not do this. Although you are using the keywords in the navigation it gets really hard to follow. A better layout would be to just use the manufacturers.
