Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great lookng laptop with a great display and keyboard, seems to run just fine and not too hot. Loads of memory and a good sized hard drive. Windows 7 is working okay at the moment...let's hope it lasts.
Bad points:
The psu unit went faulty within a week, this was replaced quickly. The mains lead flex has exposed mains wires, I have replaced this sepearately.

The anti virus software supplied is too costly to update so I moved on to AVG.

When it was working it was an excellent lap top, quick, crystal clear.
Bad points:
Problem with the hard drive, wouldn't load up properly so returned product. I suppose that's the chance you take with refurbs.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is my first laptop so not in a perfect position to compare but, I think it is great, it does all I need and more. The battery is ok for my needs and from what I've heard from other people good, but do seem to charge quite often.
Bad points:
Battery life could be better but I understand all Laptops need regular charging.
