'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.'
'Mediocre battery life.'
'The glossy finish is sleek and doesn't attract as many fingerprints or smudges as would something in black; the system is easily one of the best-looking laptops in the industry.'
'new unibody casing'
'The 17-inch screen is incredibly sharp, thanks to the 1920 x 1200-pixel resolution.'
'Choosing high performance'
'The keyboard is comfortable to type on and we like its glowing white backlight when in use.'
'The keyboard is large and comfortable to use and there is even a separate numeric keypad, which helps fill up some of the space available on the chassis.'
'No Blu-ray drive, heavy'
'Viewing angles were decent but nothing special in this price range.'
'The Samsung R530-JA03 ’s bright, eye-catching design makes a refreshing change to the traditional budget laptop design: business-like slabs of black or grey.'
'worst graphics performance'
'It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.'
'The touchpad has a lightly textured surface that was moderately accurate as we moved around the desktop.'
'Attractive design, Firm keyboard'
'The case feels sturdy, and the latchless lid feels good and stiff, holding the screen in place.'
'The Dell Inspiron 14z monitor is quite bright, with a nice pop to its colours.'
'bright 16:9 display'
'The HP ProBook 4710s features a roomy keyboard, complete with number pad, but the expansive keyboard surround could use some multimedia controls and a larger touch pad.'
'very bright and evenly illuminated LED screen'
'Heat and Noise During normal use (browsing the web or working on a text document) the ProBook 4710s remained relatively cool but not very quiet.'
