Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good value for money and in my view great features for the price. Very easy to set up and started using it withing minutes.
Bad points:
A bit heavy (but I knew that) and battery life isn't great (but I knew that too) Advert in the pack for upgrading to new operating system but couldn't see how to follow it through for an internet purchase. Pretty happy with Vista anyway.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good all round performance for such a low priced machine, does all I require of it.
Bad points:
Would have preferred more prominent keys on the keyboard but that is personal.

While there are headphone and a microphone sockets there is no line in input, but that keeps my dad off itsoperhaps that should go in the 'good points' box.

Otherwise the only drawback is the glossy finish...... Shows every mark!
