Andy, Portsmouth Used in my bedroom

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
17" screen is great for watching DVD's, the audio software is fantastic for adjusting the audio settings. The spec is excellent for the price - 2mb Ram and 120gb hard disc. The mouse pad is bigger than most I've used which is handy if you don't want an external mouse. It's reasonably quiet for a laptop, contrary to some other reviews. I searched around for ages to find the best deal and, 1 month on, have still not seen any deals that even come close with the same spec and screen size . Software included is more than enough for the avergae user.
Bad points:
Audio outputs would have been more convenient at the back, rather than in the front. The size and weight would be a bad point if you intended carrying it around a lot - but I don't. The Microsoft Office package is only a trial (30 uses for each application), but the Works package is almost as good (of which this laptop has the full version).

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
very clear screen - excellent for photography. Quick response.
Bad points:
No seperate manual. The manual in the system is not comprehensive. Still not clear what the fan button does-possibly a battery saving device
