Francis, Hayle General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
front facing USB ports, 2 x USB 3 ports on the rear, very quick
Bad points:
No blu-ray, front hatch which hides the USB ports, memory card slots, etc is a little cheap and feels like it will probably break in some point in the future.

Galal, lonodn Musician

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Fast processor ,good amount of RAM, a good pc if you just want to browse the net and run some non professional editing software
Bad points:
WINDOWS 8 Only , you can not install windows 7 , and you can not upgrade or change graphics card or expand hardware except for maybe adding another hard drive . the wireless internet dongle was impossible to work with ,very low speed , worked ok when connected LAN. somesoftwares would not work on windows 8 even though the correct drivers were installed , and the claim that you can still run some softwares in windows 7 compatibility mode , is not correct , some softwares would not work at all and just crash.

Reg, Oxford Keen gamer

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
None
Bad points:
Windows 8 is exceptionally confusing.
It won't accept Outlook Express.
The start/restart button is too small and tricky to push at a distance (the older-style round button can be pushed with a stick; I have to crawl to access this new one).
I miss my on-board games bundle and ease of access to it; (eg Spider Solitaire, it has set itself to the single-suit game, and it's impossible to change to the 4-suit game). Everything seems to be online rather than on-computer. Very disappointing.
In short, every "upward" move in Windows takes us further from ease of use. Awful!
