Customer Review

on 22 September 2010
Wanted a new, fast laptop from which to run my new business. This machine ticked all the boxes and had favourable reviews. Performance is great. Keyboard is great, with good solid feel; I needed integrated numbers pad, which it has (keys are a little smaller than the main keyboard but not so small that it is a problem). Speakers are average but I knew that from the reviews and anyway they are fine for watching clips and TV progs (actually better than I was expecting), probably not great for movie soundtracks (not much bass). Only real negative is the memory card reader: I expected an all-in-one but it only has SD, and my Fuji camera uses XD. I should have noticed in the spec but it is not a big deal and I would have probably bought the machine even if I knew due to overall spec. This is the only reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5. Have not checked out Blu-Ray as yet. Screen is good but nothing special. Obviously plenty of storage space (500GB), I partitioned 250/250 when first booted (you have to decide there and then whether to do) so I could make a mirror image backup from one partition to the other. I retained the recovery partition also and made a full recovery backup to an external drive just to be on the safe side. All the ports you need, 4x USB2 (one of which doubles as e-SATA). Am not a gamer but pretty sure this would handle games no problem - Intel i3 processor and 4GB RAM seems more than enough. Good weight for carrying around. I keep it plugged in as much as possible but battery life seems OK, certainly compared to my previous Acer Aspire machine. Overall, very happy with the purchase.
