Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good Size. Nice and light. Clear screen. Fast on startup, love the way you open the lid and there is your desktop pretty much instantly. Backlit keyboard very handy for working in low light. It is my first experience of Windows 8 but I really like it, once you have spent a little time understanding where everything is, it really is quite neat.
Bad points:
When you lift the lid, there is nothing to get a hold of, so it is easy to slip out of your fingers and slam the lid back down before it opens properly.
The mouse is constantly opening up the right hand windows menu, a windows flaw rather than the pc itself, annoying but nothing I can't deal with.

Good points:
Sensibly built, light fast and sturdy.
Bad points:
Keyboard could benefit from lights to show when buttons such as caps lock are on. Left mounted mouse pad takes some getting used to.

Good graphics
Does everything I want
Plays some pretty graphic intensive games really well. World of Warcraft etc.
Backlit keyboard
I first bought my wife one, I liked it so much I bought myself one.
Bad points:
Not really found any yet.
I only gave the battery life 8 out of 10 because I haven't tested it so I don't really know.
