Andrew, London General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I think the best thing about the value for money Samsung R505 is that you do not feel like you are compromising on anything. it looks great, feels very solid, has excellent build quality and is extremely quiet. the processor, ram and graphics card combination seems to work together better than expected and the screen is rich and works very well for playing games/watching movies. I would recommend it without reservation
Bad points:
Well the sound quality from the laptop speakers is very average but then that is to be expected and this can be easily avoided by plugging in a pair of speakers!

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
the good point are the specs which is why I bought it.
Bad points:
There are quite large lags between clicking on operations and them working, lots of hour glass watching. the internet ias fast round mine but slower than my old pc which was 4 years old. Vista is constantly asking me permission for the sillyiest things which interupts me. I could not find a way of unistalling mcaffe as couldn't find the add/remove function in control panel.
