Bad points:
after about two weeks use i connected it to my home network i encountered problems from the word go i went back with the machine to the store and it was discovered that there was a fault wiyh the chip. the machine was exchanged and the new one is running perfectly on my network. i was just unlucky and do not believe it is a general fault.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The laptop looks good with the dark red and black design, it powers on fairly quickly. My usage so far has been limited, browsing the net, facebook etc. but it does all this well with applications open. It plays DVD's with good quality picture and sound. I like this and would recommend it to anyone. My reason for purchase in comparison to similar Dell and Toshiba laptops was the keyboard, which is well spaced and easy to use.
Bad points:
None so far.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This laptop is very quick. I started using a new laptop at work at the same time as getting this one, and the Samsung outshines the other in terms of speed and general performance. So far I've not even come across any niggles about things the Samsung does. It also looks nice and stylish, and has good features that I've not come across in other laptops such as using the touchpad to rotate or enlarge the screen. 3 hours battery life which I think is reasonable considering most laptops around.
Bad points:
This laptop is larger and so therefore slightly heavier than the smaller range now available which is not a problem for me, but something to consider if you plan to work on trains etc.
