Bill, Bexhill Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Got it for my daughter it was the only one in that price range that had the spec for the new Simms game. I read on this site that it would handle the simms and it does which means i can get on my pc now and the fact that i have not been troubled once in 4 weeks since shes had it can only mean its a bit special.
Its constantly in use and on line and probably got millions of temp files etc, but i am more than happy and you just cant get better value for money.Nothing comes near it even at twice the price.Hope it lasts then.
Bad points:
None at all. Its perfect.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sleek and stylish, like the new eee ranges of PC's and a good solid "feel" to it's build. The technical stats cover all bases from work and play and give it some future proofing. Nice little laptop
Bad points:
The only drawback is the horrible glossy finish. In taking the PC out of it's packaging my greasy finger prints were all over it, this happens every time you open or close it, put it in the laptop bag etc.

Dan, Lancaster Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money with competent graphics hardware suitable for gaming, it can even run World In Conflict on high settings with framerates of around 35fps. Well designed, durable keyboard and chassis which seems sturdy and resilient, in an attractive carbon finish. The specification of the laptop is far superior to others in its price range and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Bad points:
The laptop shipped with a 32bit version of Windows Vista, meaning that only 3GB of the installed 4GB of RAM can be used most of the time. This is somewhat compensated for however, with the 'unusable' remaining gigabyte of memory being used to supplement the graphics card, meaning an impressive 1.5GB of graphics memory! It would be preferable for the laptop to ship with 64bit Windows Vista as it would make the machine more competent at all-round computing.

Rob, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its a nice stable laptop with a nice Spec and it runs stuff well
I use it for WoW, Ra2 And 3d Games like Command and Conquer so it runs it all well

Overall Nice Laptop
Bad points:
Has a squeeking noise when its running sounds like one of the fans, Might just be mine but its annoying and sounds like the noise they use to keep kids away.
