Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The product was really good and I am really pleased with it, although you need to make sure you're prepared to buy at least another 1GB of RAM as with just 1GB installed it is very very slow. It's great for playing films and games and with the extra ram is the fastest computer I've ever used!
Bad points:
The description did not match the product. I was told it had just "minor cosmetic defects" such as scratches on the lid. I even went as far as ringing the sales team to ensure the quality of the product. When it arrived it did indeed have cosmetic defects, but also had major structural damage in the way of pressure marks on the screen. The customer services team were helpful, when I could reach them, but quite unsympathetic and I was only offered a 10% discount which I reluctantly accepted. All in all, it was a very good buy as I have now installed 4GB of RAM, sorted the antivirus problem and tweeked it generally. It now works like a dream and I can almost ignore the marks. I'd recommend the product to anyone, quite disappointed with the service though.
