Still waiting for dongle so without it couldn't work keyboard or mouse so can't use PC so can only give it low rate as manufacturers wouldn't provide it direct and am waiting for retailer to sort it out 3 weeks after delivery.

Quick to use, lots of space on HD, great RAM, love the 10 usb ports and the 2 extra power only on the back, along with the wireless wifi!
Bad points:
Didn't come with Windows 7 Business option, but did manage to upgrade very easily via download (though means its an extra cost)

Stuart, Dorset Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Overall a very good experience. FYI: Windows Experience Index scores the computer between 5.2 and 7.5, the lowest score being for Aero Desktop and the highest for memory operatiions per second.
Bad points:
The network card kept on failing to connect to the internet using my hard wired internet connection. After much hassle and hours of trying to understand the problem I found an expert forum where other people with the same network card were suffering the same problem. The solution was to change one setting in the device manager. No hassle if you use a wireless connection but a potential pain if you connect using ethernet cable.
