Michael, Hampshire General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Touch screen and web cam included. Good battery life. Usable keyboard, the keys are a good size and sprung for about 2mm depression so tactile feedback is fine. Windows 7 seems OK - I was impressed by the way it found and installed a printer driver for a remote printer over my home network all by itself.
Bad points:
when typing on the keyboard the user's hands have a tendency to slide across the touch-pad, which moves the cursor somewhere else so typing suddenly jumps to some other place in whatever document you're writing. I believe it is possible to disable the touch pad.
Initial set-up is automatic but takes hours and hours - what with updating windows, and the numerous Samsung add-ons, many of which seem of dubious value.

Unfortunately I am unable to give this product a higher rating as one of the keys has broken off after less that 4 weeks use.

Henry, Ombersley Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Quick, Windows 7 makes life easy, large hard disk, easy to handle non slip outer skin, touch screen really useful extra input but still use touch pad a lot, clear bright display, great battery life.

Resumes quickly, swopping wireless points is effortless, no problems with “on the move” operating environments (temperature etc), Bluetooth wireless connects to my mobile for internet access whilst away from hot spots.

It is everything I hoped and more, represents great value, I am absolutely delighted.

Having read other reviews I did pop in an extra 1 gig of Ram from the start.

My children wished it had a DVD drive. (Yes this is a good Point)
Bad points:
Windows 7 “Starter” is fine but as I also want to use some business apps, it is a limiter. I couldn’t install Office 2010 Pro but 2007 works fine, MS SQL Express 2005 has known compatibility issues (but it does tell you this).

I can always simply upgrade the Windows version!

My children wished it had a DVD drive (Yes this is also a bad point, (see good points))

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought this net book for my son who has special needs and likes to play touch screen activities. He loves it and due to its design he can't drop it as easily as the he has with other lap tops in the past. The battery life is great.
