Questions & Answers

22/01/2015 GS: Can you burn DVDs and CDs on this laptop? Or does the presence of "Optical drive = DVD" mean that you can only read DVDs?

gavin: Hi, the optical drive on this laptop, (and all others) does both reading and writing.


22/01/2015 Els: Does this have a matte screen? I've see anti-glare mentioned vaguely by a reader but can see nothing on the specs. Plus I don't know if anti-glare is as non-reflective as matte. My primary need in a laptop is to avoid reflections at all cost - so it is critical I understand if this is truly matte or whether it is just somewhat less prone to reflection than a glossy screen. Where can I find written evidence if it is matte?

gavin: No, this laptop will be anti-glare, but not fully matte. It is very hard to find matte screened laptops. Samsung were the only ones who consistently had the feature on their professional range, but that series appears to have finished as well.

11/01/2015 Carl: How much is a ram upgrade for this product?

Lucy: Carl,
Thank you for your enquiry, I am afraid that we can not upgrade the memory on this unit due to the positioning of the chips.

10/01/2015 Ourbry: Does this model have a built in camera?

Lydia: Hello

Thanks for your enquiry. I can confirm that the item NX.V9MEK.005 does have a built in webcam.
