Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Reasonably quick. Very good bright screen. The audio is as good as I have heard from any laptop, but that is not to say that external speakers wouldn't be better, because they definitely would. It seems to fairly quiet in operation.The built in wireless N class device is very sensitive and whereas my previous laptop would only connect at 240Mhz with a weak signal indication, this in exactly the same place connects at the full 300Mhz with excellent signal quality. All in all a very good buy.
Bad points:
The hinges are very stiff and it is definitely a two hand job to open it up. The case is very shiny which I think adds to its appearance, however it will pick up fingermarks just by looking at it and shows every spec of dust. The paperwork which comes with it is abysmal and virtually useless, although a manual is supplied on the disc. You have to make your own recovery discs, which takes a bit of time and when you have finished, you don't know if they are going to work,
without wiping windows off and reinstalling from your just made discs. The other bad point from my viewpoint is the large amount of rubbish that is installed on the drive.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This laptop is a lot faster than my dual core P.C. Copes well with basic HD video editing. The Webcam is also very much a plus point. I could not believe the quality of the video and audio using a Skype connection to speak to a family member in New Zealand.
Bad points:
None so far.
