Advantages: Lots of Features and connections, Large Hard Drive
Disadvantages: Feels a little bit 'Plastic' and could have been designed a little better
I have had this model for nearly 4 months now and have mixed feelings about it. The keyboard is great, offering you room to type as normal without accidently hitting the nearby letter, but the mouse buttons have, in my opinion, i very cheap feel to them. Sometimes they just wont respond to your double clicking, which can become very frustrating at times.
The large screen is just about right - not too big, not too small. It offers very good resolution which combined with Windows 7 works very well indeed. there is a webcam just above the centre of the screen too which is a common feature of many laptops today but is a very useful one if you enjoy web conversations such as MSN Messenger.
The system is also very fast, offering 2ghz of Processing power and 1GB of RAM, which is great for writing documents, listening to music and surfing the internet, but please be aware this laptop will not be any good for gaming! The video card is quite good, but combined with the average amount of RAM and CPU power it can make High Quality videos lag a little bit at times.
The Speakers are quite good too, they are a lot louder than a lot of other laptop brands, offering a less 'tinny' sound to them aswel.
There is also a lot of storage available, with the 160GB Hard-disk. You will struggle to fill this up in a rush i can assure you.
The great thing about this laptop is you get lots of connections available to you. it is very easy to connect to a wireless network with the built in Wifi, and offers HDMI output too, so you can stream videos off the internet straight to your HD television!
There are more than enough USB sockets (3) and there is also a card socket for your camera photos, hidden discreetly next to the volume control at the front of the computer. Perhaps the volume shouldnt be controlled from there because if your using the laptop on your errm.. lap.. then it can be unnecessarily fiddly to adjust.
Finally the battery life is very good, unlike a lot of laptops that i have used in the past!
Overall this laptop is great value, with lots of features and powerful enough to run Windows 7 effectively. The only thing i would change is the appearance of the laptop, but thats me being picky.
Summary: A great value laptop and a good all rounder. recommended.
