J, Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
performance is good, other than the battery life which is only about 1.5hrs. The screen is large and clear, but with the large screen comes an appropriate chassis and weight, still fits happliy into a lapto rucksack.

3 USB ports is useful, the wifi is easy (but look out for what the internet security firewall is set to on yur software!)
Bad points:
The keyboard has a long stroke and therefore the use of the spell checker to replace the missed letters is a must. I was used to a Dell before with an easier key board

The usual issues with internet security meant it took a while to sort out the wifi, but that was a software issue. as a refurbished laptop, you need to register the windows 7 that came with it, otherwise it chucks you out after a month! Good point though, the activation code required is attached to the back of the laptop, so you know that Windows 7 is genuine!

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
I like the size of the screen and the overall laptop but as I am touch typist by trade I do find the speed of the keyboard too slow for me. My son however goes on Facebook and does his homework on it and its fab for that.
Bad points:
Bad life is a little on the low side but not a huge problem for me, just the fact that the keys are slow - when I type it seems to be almost a complete word behind!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent Value for money. Easy to set up, no problems. Came with windows 7, which after suffering Vista, was a welcome relief.
Bad points:
The keyboard is not very good, as a reasonably fast typer, I re-read what I have typed and need to make corrections, not something I need to do on better keyboards. The caps lock does not have an light when activated, but brings up an on-screen icon. This really slows the system down, so you have to wait after pressing Caps Lock before you can continue to type otherwise it misses the first half of the typing. Then wait again when turning the caps lock off. The cursor can leap up the page whilst typing, which means you end up inserting text in the wrong place. It's really just the keyboard that lets it down.
