Alan, Oxted Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It has a very good feature set which goes beyond what you'd expect from a machine at this price. Software tools are excellent especially automatic back up feature. It has fingerprint recognition, an excellent webcam and very good battery life.
Bad points:
I found it difficult to resize the backup partition of the hard disk - given the size of the supplied hard disks, a partition greater than 18gb would have been useful.
