I bought this middle april through Amazon and am very pleased with my purchase. Arrived next day due to Amazon Prime well packaged and documented. Laptop is quick to start and feels well built in terms of components.
East to setup and battery life is good and works well as an office and development (Visual Studio) machine - i3 performance is comparably better than my 2.2 Core2Duo work laptop. Onboard graphics card is fine for Windows 7 Aero, but by no means a sturdy games machine, but you'd get a WII/PS3/XBOX if you want a shiny graphics games platform.
Only downsides I can see are:
1. Too much rubbish preloaded (Norton, Mcafee, Office trials), but easy to remove/uninstall
2. Screen is LCD and not backlit LED so not good in bright conditions but fine in normal ambient circumstances.
3. No firewire (...cheapskates, Sony).
I considered a Dell/HP/Samsung machine when looking around for a laptop, so would recommend you have a wander around a high-street store first to see what feels right.
Overall very pleased with laptop so far.
