Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lovely keyboard * Nice size screen * Easy to use
Bad points:
Internal speakers are rubbish.
I first started using this laptop with two profiles, sharing the laptop between my wife and myself. Hoever, I found that it kept making USB devices unusable (esp printers) and then creating additional drivers for them, which didn't work either. This meant that every time we tried to print something, there were multiple printer drivers installed but none of them worked. I tried reinstalling the printer drivers for a laser and an inket, but that would only work for that session. A reboot later and I'd be back with the same problem. It didn't matter if I was plugging the USB devices into the laptop or through a USB 2 hub, same problem.
Eventually I took it back to Comet where I bought it from, and the technician there suggested reinstalling the factory operating system (Windows 7 Home Premium) and only using one profile on the laptop. Since then this seems to have resolved the problem, but I thought that Windows 7 was meant to be used with multiple profiles?? Seems like I have some kind of crippled 64-bit computer or Windows 7.
I also have an older Acer desktop that works with both printers perfectly on Windows XP.
