Score 8.0/10
Good points:
a good so ,far reliable, laptop which seems capable of performing all the tasks it was purchased for.
Bad points:
there have been some problems with the loaded windows vista premium, was especially concerned when programme would not start and was telling me that it was an unauthourised program, even more concerned when windows product key would not work. this problem seems to have corrected itself and system has allowed me to make back up copies of windows.
