Rob, Lancashire IT professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good value. It's small and light with a good battery life. The screen is bright and reasonably readable in adverse conditions. There's plenty of hard drive for the price and a dual core processor that seems perfectly adequate.
Bad points:
I would have preferred fewer signs of use - despite it being a rework. The keyboard and mouse pad feel a little 'lightweight'.
