Good points:
Copes with anything you care to do.Very responsive. Quality feel about everything.
Bad points:
Battery does not last very long, about an hour on average. This is probably due to the large screen. No other complaints.

Allan, Bicester, Oxfordshire

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Plays all new games that have been loaded well. Layout really good, easy to use, Large screen, futuristic media controls layout. Fast boot up. Excellent quality graphics and screen colours. Lots of interface ports. Wireless internet really good. Full sized alpha numeric keyboard built in. The built in Surround sound is brilliant with six speakers built into the PC. Havn't tried external speakers yet because built in sound quality is so good compared to usual laptops. integral Microphone quality very good too.
Bad points:
Battery life not so good - from full charge went to 60% in 5 mins. Not fully discharged the battery yet so not sure of total life.
