Tim, Sussex Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased with this laptop, especially at the price. Very fast for general applications. Not used for games so can't comment. Especially like the keyboard which feels good, keys nicely spaced. Excellent bright and crisp screen. I like the overall design. Very clear webcam.
Bad points:
None on the physical laptop itself. I personally can't bear all the unnecessary extra software that comes pre-installed on laptops but it's a fairly quick fix to uninstall all you don't want and I understand that some may find it useful. My biggest gripe is the ton of Windows Updates that has to be done to get up-to-date. At least an hours worth. Would be good if the pre-installs were a bit more recent. But this is the case on most brands.
