Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent design with the usual Tosh quality. Fantastic 18inch display, Nvidia graphics, blu-ray drive and 500GB HDD.
Comes with remote control and backlit keyboard is a nice touch.
Other than that...... I bought this Satellite P500 based on previous experience of owning a P200 and P300.....again I havent been dissappointed.
Bad points:
Only 3 bad points.....wasnt impressed with the Connexant audio.....too quiet, but itunes pre amp soon sorted that out. Annoying BEEP from the multimedia touch pad which is now on the left of the keyboard as opposed to above the keyboard where it used to be on the older Satellites....touch it when typing and it beeps.....easily turned off by entering the BIOS at boot up and disabling.
Biggest dissappointment of all was Windows 7.....absolutely useless....lets hope Microsoft sort out the problems with the first service pack.
