Most helpful reviews

Ian, Croydon Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Generally a nice machine to use but still early days to make a definate appraisal.
Can't say about battery life as I have hardly used it on battery yet.
Bad points:
Keyboard a little 'soft' and don't like the small arrow keys.
Pad mouse is somewhat erratic and at times frustrating and would prefer it to be in the centre as it was on my old beloved laptop
Only found 2 'damage' points on this refurbished unit:
1: 5 of the keys on the top right of the keyboard slope inwards. Not serious.
2: A crack about 2 inches long which I didn't notice at first on the right bottom corner of the lid.

Myles, Telford Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sleek and sexy design, a nice almost carbon fibre like, matte finish. Great graphics performance, I t can run all recent games like Skyrim and Battlefield 3 on good settings with ideal frames per second. 30+
Bad points:
No so good battery life, it only last about 2 hours on a full charge, and is not ideal for commuters or students, unless you carry the charger around with you and your destination has a plug, this also adds to the bulk of the machine, another negative.

Andrew, bournemouth Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
nice professional look. good performance especially the graphics card. have no problems playing any game at high detail.
Bad points:
needed to upgrade the ram to 8gb, prefer to have the power lead from the right side as the power lead tends to get in the way. and the sd card reader wasnt compatible with my sd cards need to get an adapter.
