Oli, Basingstoke Nothing all that relevant

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Everything except the bad points. Performance, Design, Display etc
Bad points:
Battery life is pretty bad if you don't have it plugged in even on power saver mode.
There is no way of having a 'middle' button or a scroll button on the mouse square touch pad thing...not very helpful but not the end of the world either.
