OK! So now for my opinion :)
I got this laptop literally the other day and straight away I'm very impressed with how sleek and stylish it is, it's very light as well which is handy for me because I tend to take it EVERYWHERE with me and it makes a great difference compared to lugging a huge hefty one around.
What I noticed immediately was how quick and responsive it is, it's almost as if it reads your mind sometimes as it loads things so fast.
I play a lot of Facebook games and Football Manager (which I have also reviewed previously, ahem) and it just gives you excellent quality game play.
The screen size is superb and compliments the visual quality very well, sometimes it seems like there's TOO much room on the screen but I have learnt that there's no such thing when it comes to Angry Birds.
Graphically it's fantastic, as I mentioned I play games on here when I can and the power of the machine to run FM12 so seamlessly and faultless is incredible, the database on that game is absolutely huge and it took me completely by surprise that it doesn't lag or skip, even when I have iTunes open at the same time.
The built in speakers are decent enough if you're sitting in a quiet room alone but I would definitely recommend buying yourself an external set if you're into putting music on while you do other things as they're not the best.
Windows 7 is pretty awesome too and allows you quick and easy access to all your stuff, but I'm not reviewing that..yet! :)
I think that the fact that it has 3 USB ports is VERY handy indeed, I tend to charge my phone and my iPod at the same time and the fact that I can do it all from one place is a big help to me, it also makes it easier when I want to take the pictures from my phone, upload them and then put them onto my iPod, there's no faffing around with unplugging things, it's as simple as clicking and dragging.
The HDMI output is awesome! I am currently sitting in front of my 32" HD TV writing this review with a nice cup of coffee and a huge screen to see absolutely everything I need, tell me, Who would say no to having the chance to be able to do that?
If you use a laptop for general game play and social networking like I do then this is absolutely perfect, I don't think it could handle something huge like The Sims for example but it does the job when I need it and I very much enjoy it.
Summary: All round very good, does the job for general computing needs.
