'Image quality is superb, although the shiny screen can be distracting if you're working in a brightly lit room.'
'The keys are flat and springy; the layout lacks a full number pad, but that's far from a dealbreaker on a multimedia notebook.'

'A pair of speakers above the keyboard were sufficiently loud, but lacked a bottom thump.'
'the screen is bright and onscreen colours vibrant.'
'the case is solid and robust and feels particularly tough to the touch.'
'the screen is very bright and has reasonably wide viewing angles.'

'Add-ons can get expensive.'
'spectacular performance scores'
'The 15.6-inch, 1366x768 glossy screen is nice and bright, with a webcam situated at the top.'

'It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.'
'The built-in webcam and wireless LAN make it easy to video chat at Wi-Fi hotspots.'
'the L305’s performance was mostly unimpressive.'
'the display is otherwise average.'
