What is it: A laptop aimed at power users

Price: About £1,100

Good:

  • Sturdy build quality
  • Decent performance
  • Good keyboard and trackpad

Bad:

  • Display isn't the brightest we've seen
  • Very big and heavy
  • Unimpressive battery life

The judgement: The 17.3-inch Samsung RF710-S03UK looks okay and offers decent performance for your cash. But, while it's a good all-rounder, we've seen other laptops perform better for less money.
