D, Glasgow Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I got SR59VG laptop after my SZ1XP model got replaced by my insurance. A laptop that I had for 3 years without any problems or complaints. I think if I continued with my laptop insurance after 3years I probably would still have that model. But alas i was given the SR59VG and haven't looked back. It's a bit thicker than my SZ one but it's good enough that it's not too heavy.

I love the spaced out keys, find typing very easy and comfortable, doesn't make as much noise as the SZ which is good for late night work. I also love the shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. I love shortcuts and to be able to customise 15 different application shortcuts is a huge bonus, as well as the three different modes that you get with it. So I can customise the 5 keys in one mode to be for all my media applications. Another mode, I'll have my regular applications shortcut and the third mode is for my work applications. The fact that you can change the background for each mode you're in is great too so just by seeing the background you know what mode you're in so you know which shortcuts are currently accessible.
Bad points:
I don't really have any bad points. Only that I wish the battery would last longer. When I first got my SZ laptop I could got just over 4 hours on a full charge with the battery that came with. Wish that I could do that with the SR59VG. Other than that, not really any bad points.
