Jord, Manchester General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Striking colour, great keyboard, quick access to everything, plays Guild Wars like a dream, very nice size - not too big, not too small (14"), feels sturdy and well built, webcam/microphone, love the sleep feature, plays videos steamlessly, doesn't get too hot underneath. Love it!
Bad points:
Glossy screen can get very annoying in light (especially when my uni window has constant streams of light), battery life is quite poor indeed!

Beata, Northampton General home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
design is great. lots of usefull applications. most of them I dont even know how to use but they seem to be useful.
Bad points:
On/off button is in completely wrong place. When I hold my laptop in one hand(right) i always turn it off.
Dispite of the fact that the laptop has 4 GB RAM and is on Windows 7 it is very slow. If I resume it from 3h hibernation, it will take 20 minutes to load(or very often I just have to restart it using power putton)
I am doing system updates every time when Windows 7 is asking for it. Some of them do not install. 2 times I had to do system restore as after update I couldnt load my profile. It only went to safe mode....I have many more bad point...

I love this laptop to bits. It looks gorgeous, it's powerful enough to deal with all of my gaming / illustration demands and it feels so nice to use. Very very pleased with it.

In built speakers aren't amazing, but few laptops have that XD

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
I like the design very much...its quite compatible as well. Good feature on touch pad, hope it will get more smooth by the time.
Bad points:
In-spite opting for engraving, I didn't got the engraved laptop with my name on it
I got i5 but the processing speed is not up-to mark, it seems I'm using i3. Are you guys gave me the right product :O
Performance was the only thing which I required...haven't got it
It says the battery will last for 4 hrs, its only a month I purchased it, now battery last for maximum 3 hrs.
