Shaun, Coleford, Glos General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I like the performance, it's probably more than I need but excellent for me. The individual keys make typing easier, and battery life is great, i do totally discharge or almost to keep battery in good condition.
Bad points:
None come to mind.

Very good price in its category;
Easy to install/ start up; Slick metallic design, 14" screen size is excellent. Has a built in CD/DVD drive and plenty of ports. Screen is clear and bright.
Computer runs quickly and usually smoothly.

Confirmed purchase: 10 Jan 2011

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Graphics, screen, sound, are excellent. I often watch movies without hooking up the external speakers. Performance is quick. Start up and shut down are fast. Multi tasking is great. Very light. Easy to set up out of the box. Love the keyboard.
Bad points:
Battery life is pathetic. I would not be so diappointed if Samsung had not boasted a 5 hr battery life. On a full charge I dont get more than 2 hours for basic email and facebook activities. Forget about watching video or playing games on the battery. I've set the power settings to the most battery conservative settings but still no joy. The hard drive is partitioned which is really annoying so you dont really get 320gb. It's more like 250. There are comparable laptops with better battery life.

Confirmed purchase: 09 Jan 2011

Confirmed purchaser Often on the move

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Screen is excellent, I much prefer watching movies on my laptop compared with the normal TV! Build seems sturdy and it definitely looks good. I love the keyboard, very easy to type for long periods of time with the nicely spaced keys.

Performance seems fine, I have run first person shooters fine on this, if you take the graphics settings down a notch or two. for everyday use it is quiet, cool and fast.
Bad points:
The only thing that really gets me going is the touchpad. It's a bit on the small side and it isn;t responsive around the edges of the area you would think should work. This makes the mulit-point manipulation a little hard to use atfirst. Still though, it's a minor problem on a great allrounder.
