Severine, London Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Best value for money gaming Laptop. This is basically a rebadged MSI GT725/729 (less Blu-ray & Turbo functions)
This is the cheapest quad core Laptop with a Radeon HD4850 you can get (I got mine for £665.00).
The build quality is very good and so is the 17" screen.
Bad points:
It has a full keyboard,which includes a number pad on the right. This make the keyboard cramped and useful keys, such as the enter, cursor and right shift keys have all been shrunk.The sound drivers were not correct, hence why others have reported this pc being too quiet. I installed the drivers for the MSI GT729 (the drivers under device manager should show ATI HDMI Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio), which made a vast improvement. Also there is a lot of heat given out when gaming, which is expected, as the q9000 is a 45w cpu.

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
A full qwerty keyboard including numeric keypad.
The ATI graphics card can be overclocked easily with the supplied Catalyst Control Centre.
The laptop performance is comparable with my three year old desktop but it costs about half of what I paid then for the desktop.
Bad points:
Some of the keys, for example the cursor keys, are too small for comfortable use.
