Josh, Stoke-on-Trent General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good solid performer. Deffinately good value for the features it has i.e. blu-ray player. Very good LCD backlit screen looks better than any other laptop screen I've seen. It also generally looks nice.
Bad points:
Really the only "bad" point I can think of is that the power cable comes out of the laptop quite easily and everytime it does the laptop makes a sharp high pitch beep to let you know which can be a bit annoying.
