5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Laptop 4 Sep 2012
By Alvis
Verified Purchase
I purchased this laptop at a perhaps promotional price from Amazon and as such it was a simply stunning buy, but even at around 400 GBP this machine is still a 5 stars, although the version based on the AMD A8 chip may be an even better buy in the 400-500 pounds price range.

Built and look
The laptop feels very solid and extremely stylish thanks to a very well made construction and an impeccable metal cladding finish. I am not particularly keen on many such laptops but this is very nice looking. There is very minimal or no flexing for neither the chassis nor screen. It is quite thin for a DVD equipped laptop and it is fairly light for a non ultra-portable machine.

Features
It has all the right features for a modern work and media laptop, except I would have preferred a higher resolution webcam. However it include HDMI and VGA video ports, 4 USB ports (two of which are very fast) Ethernet and WiFi, the latest bluetooth which is fast and supports all recent services, a card reader slot and the analog audio IN/OUT plugs. I used it with my iMac bluetooth mouse running both Windows and Linux with identical results in operation to the iMac.

Screen
It is excellent especially for a budget/mid-market machine. It is anti-reflective (a very good thing), bright and with good resolution. Colours are vibrant and with a good fidelity (I am a keen photographer). However the angle of view does affect greatly the contrast (which in turns affects the perceived colours) especially for vertical angles.

Keyboard
The keyboard feels solid and not cheap (although not top quality either). I found it easy and responsive to use. The touchpad looks and feels nice, although the buttons do feel a touch loose. I operation though it is not a real limitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value ! 7 Sep 2012
By Haawser

Screen- OK, it's only 1366x768 but the matte finish is pure win. Unlike most cheap laptops with high gloss screens this one can actually be seen in bright lighting with no annoying reflections. If you use your laptop on the move this alone is worth the asking price.

Build quality- For a <300 laptop it's on par with stuff costing far more. Feels reasonably solid with little flex or wobble. Although made entirely of plastic it doesn't look or feel 'cheap'. I would call it an understated design, but in a good way.

Connections- With USB3, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, webcam/mic, DVD burner, audio in/out, bluetooth and a multi-card reader it has all the options one could expect from a modern laptop.

In use- Plenty fast enough for everyday use, surfing, watching movies, writing stuff etc. It can even play older/less taxing games quite nicely. Battery life is probably close to 5 hours when not doing intensive stuff. Keyboard and trackpad are average, but it's an average priced laptop so that's expected. Nothing 'wrong' with them as such, but the trackpad buttons do feel a bit flimsy, work well enough though.

Overall- For the price it's a steal. I haven't seen anybody other than Amazon offering them for 279 so I'm guessing they must have some sort of deal going on ? Whatever the reason, if you want a sub 300 laptop for 'general use' you should give it serious consideration.

(As true as all that ^ is, it's not why I bought it. I bought it because I suspected the A6-4400m and A10-4600m APU's were interchangable. They both use the same M-PGA zif socket and have 35 watt TDP. So I took a chance and fitted one. Along with a 128GB SSD and 8GB of low latency DDR3 1600.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent computer, 1 Oct 2012
By louise
Verified Purchase
I purchased this computer from Amazon, It was advertised at such a special price, and even though I was given a 2-3 week wait for delivery< I decided I couldn't go wrong. I am so glad that I did, it was ordered, on the 10th September and delivered on the 16th, I saw this model being sold by a famous computer store for 300 more than I paid for it.

It was well packaged, the computer box was within an outer box, when I opened the computer box I was amazed, it had a dust sleeve over the screen, The computer was also in a dust bag, the leads have small velcro straps attached.

The whole look and feel of it is quality.I use this as my home computer, I have down loaded and played music, you can finetune the sound quality, to get a better pitch, it comes with Windows 7> 2 months free security Norton360. I downloaded Windows Security Essentials, It also has 3 versions of Internet Explorer 9. (32bit,64bit, IE no addons).

After using Windows XP for many years,on my old notebook. To see and use windows 7 on such a stunning computer is a whole new experience,
One quirky thing, the delete button works by holding down the shift key and then pressing delete.
