      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A well designed laptop with a good specification with minimal negatives.

      I have owned this laptop now for just over a year (since Jan 2010). I purchased it for the price of £459;a lot less the original RRP of £599 and it is easily one of the best P.C's I have owned.

      The Laptop:
      On opening the box you find the well wrapped and protected Laptop along with the charger and a couple of quick-start guides, unfortunately there's no extra accessories here but that's typical these days. The actual laptop if very stylish and whilst maintaining a professorial look; the matte gray lid works well to contrast the silver glossy interior you find upon opening the lid, along with the individual black keys and multimedia buttons on the top right. The build is very good for the most part although some of the screen surround is a creaky when pressure is applied.

      This laptop performs exceptionally for its purpose. The HD screen is bright and colours are crisp although when watching movies blacks aren't well defined due to the average contrast ratio. With 256mb dedicated graphics and 2.0 GHz dual core processor the majority of game's will run well on medium settings; multimedia playback on this computer is exceptional, DVDs play with no frame dropping even when using the HDMI output. Battery life is around 2 - 2.5 hours when running multiple apps, Wi-Fi and having the screen at full brightness. This can be extended to around 3.5 hours if you are only word processing or similar. Finally most software will run very well here except for highly demanding tasks such as video rendering.

      Overall I feel that this laptop is suited to the majority of mid-to-high end personal and business users with its "business-esque" design and high specification.
