mouse pad takes some getting used too but thats about it. Reading some of the reviews the battery life seems to be an issue, however haven`t had that problem as such as i`ve always had it plugged in if i`ve been using it for any length of time

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well designed and practical laptop. Meets all the needs of the average user. Not a serious gamer, so can't really comment on this aspect of usability. Extremely quiet in use.
Bad points:
Display driver has caused the machine to crash a couple of times, even though it is the latest available downloaded from Samsung website. To be fair though, this could be the result of pre-Win7 software installed on machine.

Maybe it's a case of getting used to the calculater type keys, but much prefer the keyboard buttons on my old Acer.
