There is already a good review for this machine. I took the plunge as getting an i5 processor and 6gb ram for this price it seems a bargain (£549.99)

Just to add, if anybody is interested, the Windows experience score taken the first day of ownership:

Processor 6.9
memory 6.9
Graphics 4.9
3D gaming graphics 5.8
Hard disk 5.9

The only "negative" i can find is the machine is a little on the big side - not massive, but a little big. The keyboard has a large built in wrist rest area where the touch pad is. A nice touch is the numerical pad, something I have never had on a lap top.

All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and grateful for the previous reviews.

I thought long and hard before making this purchase - and now I'm not sure why I hesitated at all!

Delivery was really fast - following day, exactly as expected. I already purchased a Samsung Netbook for my wife 18 months ago, so I knew what to expect, but I was still pleasantly surprised. On opening the box the notebook was well protected and looked every bit like the online images. Very little documentation, but as a seasoned user I didn't need much guidance. Even for a first-timer, there should be no problem to get up-and-running. The more detailed user manual is accessible from the Samsung group in All Programs, along with a host of other support applications. I'm not a big fan of built-in games, but if that's your bag then there's also a range to choose from in amongst the built-in software.

The screen is clear, bright and adjustable from the usual blue function keys, as is the sound. The reflection from the shiny surface takes some getting used to after a matt one, and you find yourself avoiding windows over your shoulder. But in most indoor situations it works well. I've not tried outdoors but would imagine it to be nightmare. That said, the quality of the image is outstanding and adds a degree of depth and clarity to my photographs (a primary use for me). Going back to the sound, it's totally adequate for personal listening at say arm's length - any more than that you'd be thinking of utilising the audio jack with something a bit more powerful or perhaps headphones. Also not used yet is the HDMI socket, but that's another option if you want to play through your TV.

All USB and other sockets are on the sides, so no struggling at the back edge to find connections.

After owning a Samsung R60plus since may 2008 , i decided it was time to get a new laptop.
Having owned other makes before i decided i would like to stay with a samsung as they are reliable and the build quality is really good.

Delivery was really quick.(2days)

Inside the box is a recovery cd , laptop , battery , quickstart guide and power lead.
It was really straight forward to setup and within 30 minutes i was good to go.

As soon as you start the laptop it asks you to partition the harddrive , so i set my main c: drive at 150gb and left the rest to drive D , which suits my purposes really as i will not be installing alot of software.

I removed the trial version of Norton security and office 2010 and installed my own version of office 2007 and mcafee security ( which is free with o2 broadband).

There is quite a bit of trial version software preloaded, which i really hate , but once removed , its no big deal.

The first thing i did was charge the battery and head over to my brothers house to show him my new laptop. We decided to see how HD video on youtube performed ( we did this at his house as he has btinfinity ( 40mb connection)
Well the picture quality was stunning but the screen kept flickering once in a while which worried me slightly.

I got home and tried the youtube videos at home and the same thing happened , so i removed the battery and plugged it in directly to the mains and the problem vanished. It would appear the graphics card doesnt have enough power from the battery to perform during hd playback but works fine from mains power.

Bang for your buck! That's an apt description for this lovely little powerhouse of a laptop. It's got buckets of memory, a very fast processor and more RAM than you can shake a stick at. The design is cosmetically appealing and it's vibrant colours and screen resolution will have you drooling. The connectivity is also above par. Plug in HDMI cable straight into your flat screen TV and the picture will be transferred to the larger screen automatically.
The only negative I can think about is par for the course for laptops in general , and that is the sound quality. Slightly tinny, but this really is a very minor drawback. Pay double the price for the same spec in a more fashionable brand if you wish. But DO consider this computer first. Remember Samsung is THE up and coming name now in LCD TV's, if they continue with the good work they have laid out on this little darling then they could make inroads in the premium portable computer market.
In conclusion , I have been using my new Samsung for a month now and I am as happy as a pig in the proverbial. Stunning value for money. If undecided I strongly urge you to hit "BUY" ,you won't regret it. Good luck guys.
