    Nice review, but I thought this laptop had been around a while, hence why the specs might seem a little out of date?

    Looks that way. One of the laptops they compared it with is the ASUS A6JA, at £1400. I have just brought one from scan for about a thousand (typing on it now in my garden). Comparing the specs, and for the same money I would say the Asus is better in every way other than the screen resolution.

    Also, on the Battery benchmark is nearly a good benchmark, but it falls down by relying on the systems percent remaing score, instead of just playing the DVD untill the battery dies. All hexus would need to do would be to get an insanley long move (LOTR director's cut should do it), and just play the thing untill the battery gives out. For peple who watch moves on planes it is a realistic benchmark, and very easy to do.
