Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The specifications and performance are fantastic for what I paid for. The laptop performs better than one I bought 6 months before and is much cheaper and lighter.
Bad points:
The battery life is dissapointing. I find myself having to turn the screen brightness right the way down in order to make it last for up to about two and half hours. Also, the position of the left Ctrl key annoys me slightly.

Bogdan, Worcester General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
- Very good performance (overall: processor, video card...) for this price.
- Nice display (clear image, good brightness/contrast)
- About 3hrs battery life (internet browsing and low brightness)
Bad points:
- Only 2.95GB RAM are being used by WIN7 (32bit) - default set - even though on the website 4GB are advertised (1GB is allocated to video card, even if that one has 512MB external memory).
- Fan is too noisy and starts quickly at high speed (it should've been set to start smoothly)
- The case is too shiny and you can easily observe fingerprints all over it (next to the touchpad where you hold your hands when typing) - moreover, the touchpad is made with the same material and your finger doesn't slide easily (as compared with a Sony Vaio)
- Not very good power management when running on baterry (still the fan starts in less than a minute, even without any important application running).

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's a good size and is quite light. I love that the keys are slightly raised not flush like on the Sony Vaio and it has a number keypad like a desktop keyboard.
Bad points:
There seem to be more things to put in this section but they are niggly points and do not outweigh the good in any way.It claims to have a 4 hour battery - it's more like 2, but this isn't a huge problem as I rarely use it where I can't plug it in. The Veriface software that came on it was useless & I ended up un-installing it - it only recognised my face one timeout of every 40-50. The only other problem (may not be a problem for someone not quite as OCD as myself) it is very high-gloss so finger-prints are a problem!!

Confirmed purchase: 19 Feb 2010

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Powerful videocard for this price. Cooling fan quite enough. Bluetooth. Numeric keypad. SATA 2 Hardrive. Extra volume and mute buttons - visible in dark. SD card slot. Solid, massive body/casing - doesn't bend, noiseless. Good build quality. Overall good quality and value. Bad points are minor issues.
Bad points:
Very glossy screen. 8x DVD, 24x CD writing speed, a bit slow. 16x DVD 52x CD would be better. Surface of body is glossy, maybe looks little cheap/plastic. - not too bad though.
Headphones socket is facing to my belly, would be better at sides. Could be more USB port, not only 3. Only one "Fn" button. Another would be handy on right hand site.
