  • Summary: I made an account on this website just to review this stupid laptop. Everything that is great about this laptop is ruined by Samsung being sloppy. The laptop has major issues - it has the ability to play powerful games with great graphics, but overheats if played for more than about 30 minutes!
  • Pros: Design, memory, graphics.
  • Cons: Over heats, breaks too easy.

  • Summary: When the computer works, it works well. Unfortunately overheating can be a problem (see below).

  • Pros: Huge Display, extra bay for 2nd hard drive, Sleek Design (compared to other 17 inch laptops), powerful, Can be upgraded to 16 GB ram (if you buy 64 bit Windows)

  • Excerpt: One problem with this laptop is that it is very slow you might want to invest your money and buy something with a bit more ram like the advent roma 2000 costs £340 (from pc world)Alternatively you can simply upgrade you laptop which might cost you quite alot depending on were you go.

  • Excerpt: Very stylish and sleek laptop, although maybe a little thick and/or weighty for some people! Has been very sturdy for me so far (touch wood!) as it has suffered a few minor knocks and drops over the last year. However one thing I have noticed is that it doesn't like being pick up by the screen.
  • Pros: Reliability
