Craig, Sheffield

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really nice design, good battery life, nice keyboard, easy to use, love the blue glow around the mouse pad!

The laptop is pretty slim and light compared to a friends 17" laptop!

I am looking forward to the windows 7 upgrade!

This model has the subwoofer underneath too!!
Bad points:
I thought the lid was matte, but its actually gloss and shows up finger prints (I was specifically looking a non gloss one for this reason), but its not too bad! The rest of the laptop is matte though!

Mike, Glasgow Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
High definition, clear and bright screen, with a flexible range of power saving options which can help extend battery life when you are not plugged into the mains. Good graphics capability for a laptop, and plenty of RAM coupled with a good processor means that you will not have to cope with long loading times for most programs.
Bad points:
Keyboard can sometimes feel a little cheap and unresponsive, but not overwhelmingly so. Battery capacity is a little small, especially given the size of screen [and the resulting battery drain] however Samsung as previously mentioned has implimented a flexible array of power saving options to counteract this.
