Helen, General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Slim and easy to handle.Just getting used to different layout on keyboard but easy to use. Guide is very helpful
Possibly could have rated performance higher after longer period of use.
Bad points:
2 things.
1. Find the connection cable not very secure - seems to be a bad fit.
2. How to open the lid not very obvious especially with the samsung name upside down on the cover.

Paul, Swindon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great performance for the price with loads of hard disk space. Nice and quiet with a pretty good battery life.
Bad points:
Don't buy this if you suffer from OCD. It shows every finger print on the wrist rest and screen (urrr!!!). The touchpad scrolling area is about a centimeter from the right edge of the pad and often comes into play when you're just trying to use the mouse.

Seb, London General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Feels solid good quality, especially keypad. Silver finish looks matt in all pictures but is actually shiny, shows finger marks, which doesn't bother me cos it all looks great. Fan comes on a lot but is quiet and computer doesn't seem to get even warm with prolonged use. Screen superbly sharp, sound on speakers excellent too, as good as more expensive Sony Vaio previously bought. Battery seems to live up to the 4 hours claimed, can always tweak brightness etc.but good tip is to fully charge and run down battery first few times and when using at home take battery off as having it plugged in whilst fully charged eventually seems to deplete its life.
I nearly purchased Acer (a little less money) but couldn`t get at all excited over the rudimentary design and facia. This however has the feel of a more unique, personalised machine; sad though it is, that's what makes me most satisfied.
Bad points:
Some sales websites hardly mention that it is widescreen, this makes a difference on web browsing as you get two bands each side of the screen that aren't filled (making it into about a 14" screen). However I've increased zoom level (bottom right of screen) to 125% which seems the balance for best use of full screen on net. And I`m sure the widescreen will come into it's own with movies and games!
