Excellent Laptop , Still up to date a year on !

Advantages: Great for movies , good quality and easy to use
Disadvantages: Poor battery life
I got my Samsung R519 for Christmas 2009. I was instantly happy. A year on and it is still as good as brand new laptops out there which is great ! It has good specs and a large , bright screen. The only thing that really bugs me about it is the battery life but I normally have it plugged in anyway so that doesn't affect me that much.
* Quality *
The R519 is superb quality. It has a large screen and the keyboard is very robust but at the same time is really easy to type with. I have had it for just more than a year now and everything is working the same as when I first took it out of the box apart from the left button on the mouse which can sometimes stick but that rarely happens and is just down to dust getting stuck. The keyboard is quite noisy as well but that doesn't bother me but it can bother some people.
* Reliability *
So far I have had no problems with my laptop. Like I have already said , it is working the same as the day I first got it. I have had no viruses and I haven't used up even half of its memory yet.
* Ease of Use *
This laptop came complete with Windows 7. This is windows newest system and also its most easy to use system. Everything is displayed in a clear way and even my 7 year old finds it really easy to use. The laptops mouse is very simple as well and responsive not like some other laptops that I have had over the years !
* Installation *
When I pulled this laptop over of its box , I was so excited to use it and I was expecting that its would have a long boring start up or one of tests etc.. I was pleasantly surprised. I pulled up the lid , made my account and put in my wireless password and that was it ! I was surfing the web within 2 minutes of getting the laptop!
* Battery Life *
This is the one thing that slightly lets this laptop down. It has poor battery life. This can be over come however. Either by leaving it plugged in or changing the battery settings. These are settings which will automatically kick in when the computed is unplugged so the battery will last longer. The screen will dim to whatever point you want it to and some programs that you chose will shut down.
* Features *
The Samsung R519 comes with some great features. It comes with windows 7 pre - Installed. It also has a large screen for a laptop (15.6 inches) ,2GB RAM ,SRS TruSurround XT and SRS WOW XT which make it perfect for gaming or watching HD movies on it.
Summary: A excellent all round laptop perfect for watching movies or just everyday use
