Mark, Oxford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Much lighter than I was expecting. The keyboard is really nice too, and I have additional keypad which is great. Very quick to start up, and the processing power is good.
Bad points:
Some of the packages are a bit naff. I don't want McAffee and it just won't go away. Why would I pay for Nitro Pro when I can get Adobe? DVD player looks a bit fragile

Ben, Waterford I.T. student

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great Battery
From start click to using takes seconds
Silent fan
Bad points:
None with the laptop as of yet
However the sales person who phoned was downright rude. Be prepared and know some things. They will try to sell all kinds of things. Was told that I could not back up to an external HDD. She also got ratty because I wasn't biting for office, their "better than all" anti virus and other things. When I was about to enquire about two sticks of extra RAM she hung up mid sentence. I mean SHE phoned ME. Anyway rant over the laptop itself is worth it.
