[-Introduction On The Laptop-]
After braking my screen on my previously laptop, i needed a new laptop for work. I wanted one which was durable firstly so the screen wouldn't brake like the previous. I wanted a white coloured stylish laptop because they are basically the type of laptop i like. I wanted a fairly cheap one between the prices of £500-£700 which was my budget. I instantly started looking a google shopping which not alot of people use but i would definately recommend, they provide the lastest prices, and where you can purchase the laptop from. It definately saves you going around every single site trying to find whether they sell the laptop and then what the price is and what is comes with.
After searching through google shopping i found the cheapest price. The cheapest price was at PCWorld which was convient for me because i trust the store, and there is one nearside my home. The price at PCWorld was £650 at the time, it then came with a case, the laptop and security software to be downloaded onto the laptop. For all of that i thought the price was amazing. The laptop was in stock as most things at PCWorld so i went to collect it. The staff at PCWorld couldn't have been any better they were so nice and thoughtful and made sure i knew what i was doing. The laptop was well packaged with everything it came with in one box which was convient because i didn't have to go around carry bits and bots.
[-Getting The Laptop Home & First Use-]
I got the laptop home and started it immediately. It was packaged really well which i loved, because i do tend to drop and brake things quite a bit, and as you can guess that is how my previous laptop broke! All of the seperate bits in the box were packaged very well, even the instructions which were packaged in their own plastic wallets to avoid folding which i thought was really good. In the box was the laptop itself, the laptop charger, the case (only in this package), instructions, the warranty, step by step guides, security software (only in this package again). I charged up the laptop straight the way connecting the laptop charger into the laptop which i must say was really easy. One thing i did notice straight the way whilst carry the laptop is the fact that it is so light. The laptop and charger which is all you need to carry around weighs literally one to two kg, which makes it really portable.
[- Battery Life & Start-up-]
Start-up on this laptop is very fast which is amazing especially if you want to go on the laptop fast and efficiently. If you put the laptop in advanced sleep mode which is more or less the same as turning off the laptop, all you have to do is lift the lid and the laptop starts up within three seconds which is great. If the battery dies or you have to go quick another great feature on this laptop is the fact the laptop automatically saves your work. The work which you had open is automatically saved to the hard drive which is really good and means that you never lose the work. Battery life on this laptop is also amazing which is another great feature of this laptop. All of the laptop's performance works of battery save which is good and no change is made to the performance. There is no need to worry how much battery life is left because the laptop generally lasts around ten hours which is amazing. Battery life obviously depends on what you are doing on the laptop, the battery runs down more if you are playing videos or games.
[-Stylish, Light-Weight, & Modern-]
This laptop is so stylish which is one feature which i absolutely love. I have never saw a laptop like it, it curves and is a weird shape which is great because i wanted a laptop which is different because most laptop look the same rectangualar shape, despite this being a little rectangular, it is desfinately different. It as sold as being ultra light which is definately right. The laptop is very light and makes it portable and easy to carry around if you are going to be using it for work. This laptop is shiny, and a great colour which makes it look really modern which is a good thing about a laptop if you are taking it into work, or if you are buying it for someone else. The laptop is skinny which is good and helps to make it light weight, it also helps if you are carrying it around with you.
[-Picture Quality & Sound Quality-]
The picture quality on this laptop is amazing. It has a very very bright LED screen which is good and i suppose this helps the picture quality. This laptop can also provide over 16,000 colours which is amazing, and allows you to view pictures clearly. The screen size is 13" which is also a good size which is not too big and not too small. On your home screen backgrounds which come with the laptop make good use of the 16,000 colours available, and makes your laptop look really good. Game and video quality is also amazing through picture graphics and sound. The sound quality on the laptop is also amazing, whether you are playing the sounds out loud or through headphones which can be easily plugged into the laptop. Music and game effects play great on this laptop and sound really good. There are multiple volume levels which is great if you want your music on low or high. iTunes also works great on this laptop and the music plays out is good quality.
Wifi connectivity on this laptop is great. It scans for wifi available networks fast and efficiently. This is great if you are out and about and want to connect to wifi immediately. Another great feature of this laptop is it has amazing bluetooth technology, which is Bluetooth 3.0 high speed, this allows you to send files to other laptops and devices easily! This laptop has a share file solution which makes sharing files easy, and efficient another great feature of this laptop. A great feature of this laptop is the fact that you can charge devices via USB without the laptop even being on. Via the connection of the USB it charges your device up easily, and i have never known a laptop which does this.
[-Customer Service & Help-]
Samung is a great company which has so much help on offer for its users. Samsung has a great call centre with people that are willing to help. The call centre is more or less 24 hours, well it has always been open when i have rang up. Samsung also offer a great email service where you email with the problems which you are having and they will help you sort them out with a email back within a couple of days, which is a quick response for a large company. Other options include, online video tutorials, and online forums where people can come online and help you with the problems you are having. The user manuals, and step by step guides are also helpful. They come in a large range of languages which is great if you want to read them in a different language than english, they also come in simple language, with diagrams to help you.
This laptop has 4GB RAM which is fab for a laptop. It also has 320GB in hard drive capacity which is also really good. All of this memory is great and allows you to store lots of documents and presentations if you are using it for work. Me personally i have hundreds of documents, pictures and quite a few videos from music concerts and i still have loads of memory left. This means you can also download programmes easily, fast and efficiently. All this memory allows the laptop to be super fast which is great because i hate a laptop which is slow!
[-Where To Buy The Laptop-]
If you want to purchase this laptop it is available at quite a few places, which i will list below, and the prices they sell it for. If you are planning on buying this laptop and the package doesn't come with a case i would definately recommend buying one, it makes carrying it around easy, and prevents it from collecting dust or dirt. Prices are as follows;
The BT Shop; £684.99
Insight UK; £663.94
Memory Express; £686.16
Ebay; Range Of Prices
Overall i would definately recommend buying this laptop, it is a great price for what you get. It is a good laptop, and for all the points i have raised above. The laptop is great for people of all ages. Thanks for reading and rating!
Summary: 100% recommend.
