So I am finding this quite strange at the thought of writing the review about the laptop I am typing on, but here it goes. well as you can tell from the headline I am kinda keen on this laptop. If you have read any of my other reviews, they are definately not techy. Anyway the techy stuff is usually provided so I am just going to write my personal opinions on how I find this laptop.
So I love this laptop firstly due to the lovely wide screen. It is a huge improvement from the last laptop I had. The screen quality looks like a TV almost. I love watching catch up on my laptop now because the picture quality is great.
I have the laptop in black and its slightly silver around the keyboard area, although the keyboard is black. It was a complete bargain as well at less than £200 new.
The battery life lasts for a couple of hours on its own, which is more than enough for me. And thats with things such as writing this review!The only downfall to where I sit is when I do need to plug it in, I have to plug it in to my right (and the socket is closer to my left!lol) The lead I have is long enough as well.
The buttons are not the smoothest but they are ok and to be honest I do not like the ones that are too soft anyway as it doesnt feel like I am typing.
This laptop is made of great quality and I must admit i have dropped it twice already and it hasnt broken *phew*. I would say its the lightest laptop I have picked up but its definately an improvement on my ancient one. It would be great if yt was a little lighter but I absolutely love it!
I tned to use my laptop for bowsing the web, online banking & online shopping ;) and it works a treat.
The only negative to this is the touch pad is extremely sensitive and I must admit I haven't quite worked out something just yet but it is really irritating. The problem I have is the screen just seems to 'zoom' in or out on its own ( I am sure its not and I am probably doing something) but its really irritating. I then have to alter it back to 100% as I like it buy choosing the options on view.
Sorry the last negative I would have is on my old laptop it had a little scroll option on my touch pad of which I could use to scroll down the page. This does not have one on this touch pad and i have to use the cursor to scroll down the page by using the bar on the right if that makes sense.
Not such a techy review as I mentioned earlier but that info is provide anyhow, so if your looking for a bargain laptop with a great screen and stylish design I would defo opt for this one! I hope this helps!
