"Worst intervention everrrrrrr" Hank Moody is a legend. For those new to Californication you need to watch Seasons 1-5 before watching this instalment. For seasoned veterans there is no need to review as this is a must have addition.

Waste of money, bought for sons Christmas, used once in the living room. Wouldn't work in his room as Microsoft believe all UK rooms should be 20 x 20ft!

Good ball for outdoor use with great grip. Ordered for my son to use, I had the same one as a kid and knew the quality was good. Only issue (& reason for the 4) Incorrect item delivered first of all (on delivery date), however contacted the seller and they promptly apologised and replaced with the correct item within 2 days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Samsung R20 Review, 10 Jan 2008
I bought the R20 back in May 2007, at the time I was looking for a PC package deal and opted for the R20 together with matching Samsung SM206BW Monitor and a wireless Keyboard & Mouse.

The spec of the R20 I purchased was 2x512MB RAM, 160GB (7200rpm) Hard Drive, ATI 128mb Integrated Graphics card running Vista Home Premium. The Intel chip was a simple Core Duo 2x 1.73GHz (I think!).

The design of the laptop is stunning, but the high gloss effect on the lid is prone to smudges and fingerprints especially when you are carrying it from meeting to meeting or around the house. The most annoying part is the design imprint just below the screen when you open the lid. This looks like a really nice little design feature when you first purchase, however this has now gone a (not very eye pleasing) shade of grey a little more than 6 months down the line and makes the laptop look older than it is.

Performance wise, the original 1GB of RAM was not nearly enough to run Vista Home Premium as the ATI Graphics card snatches away (what appeared to be) 200MB from my system memory with Vista taking a HUGE chunk of the rest. However, you can upgrade up to 4GB with this model.

I ditched the original 2x 512MB sticks of RAM and opted for 2x1GB versions which only cost me another £32 from Microdirect.co.uk.

The laptop now runs very smoothly and takes everything I throw at it.

The hard drive space is very good, however upon first start up it split my 160GB HD into two partitions of 70GB each (with 20GB hidden for Vista).

The only real bad point about this laptop is that the battery life is abysmal, unless all you intend using it for is to run a spreadsheet or word document in a meeting without the plug.

If your thinking about lying in bed watching a DVD or listening to music then forget it (unless you plug the thing in), as you only receive around 20 - 35 minutes of battery life before it goes into standby mode. The screen also dims to the point that you have to plug it in just to see what your doing!!!

Games and media wise it isn't a bad little machine. The screen is excellent for watching DVD's (with the plug in!) and you can play games like Fifa 08, The Sims2, Tom Clancy's GRAW etc with no issue or slowdown.

Overall id recommend this laptop, however if your looking for a better spec and build quality for the same price go for a HP.
