Gary, Reading General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Screen is very clear and keyboard layout is good. Would recommend this computer who people who are looking for Ferrari performance at Fiesta cost! I compared about 10 laptops and this was the winner for me...and I don't part with my money easily either!!
Bad points:
Left and right click buttons are stiff and you need fingers like Popeye to press them. Easily solved with a wired/wireless mouse though.

Michelle, Chelmsford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
its wide enough to view documents or videos properly.
i like the additional number pad on the right - jus like desktop keyboard - very good!!
Bad points:
It doesnt come with a laptop bag and (im a lady) so its annoying having to find a suitable bag i.e in this case a sports bag wen im goin over to my friend's house. (im a student) so im saving money till i can purchase a laptop bag.lol
The cursor pad its so annoyingly sensitive that when you are typing your hand can accidentally slightly brush against it and then you end up ruining whatever you are typing. so i ave had to disable it inorder to avoid such disturbances. Very frusrating!!
