David, Burton on Trent born again christian blessed

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good for the price, good processor, nice large 17" screen for comfortable reading of text. would recommend for use at home more than taking it any where as it is slightly larger than the 15'4" screens and needs a larger bag.
Bad points:
The screen is 17" but I don't think they made the battery any bigger to compensate for the it, The design is not eye candy enough to be able to show off to your friends with it, it's just a very basic grey box, but if your not very trendy like me then that won't matter.

Adrian, Rubery, Birmingham Very satisfied customer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased with sze of screen and performance of processors. People have complained about battery life, but I think it is quite good. It never seems to get too hot and the fans are not noisy when they come into operation.
3 Good usb ports. I like the switch to connect to wireless network. Good wireless reception. Very attractive design and well built.
Bad points:
Someteimes have problems when typing, I don't know if this is the way I type or oversensitivity of the machine itself. It could have been useful to have put in a 1.7 or 1.8 speed processor insetead of 1.5
