sImon, Hitchin systems analyst

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well built, solid, good display. Works well as a desktop replacement. Good level of cpu power and memory for the money. Optimal pricepoint for a system of this level. Very capable as my audio workstation running Ableton Live with lots of plugins.
Bad points:
It's a bit big to take outside the house, and it won't run off battery for too long, but if you want a very good quality home use laptop this really isn't an issue.
