Lynda, Northern Ireland IT Technician and buyer

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The laptop is affordable, has a great keyboard layout and doesnt come with unnecessary pre-installed software like HP and Toshiba laptops.
Bad points:
For a laptop with a Core i5 processor it doesnt run quickly. I'm dissappointed as my 5 year old celeron laptop with XP Pro runs much more quickly. the case could also prove a bit of a problem, the fittings are cheap and the edges of the case are quite sharp.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The Intel i5 processor certainly gives the speed required.
Bad points:
The edges of the case are a little sharp and could benefit from a design change but do not inhibit the use of the laptop.

Jan, Edinburgh General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Neat & lighweight, fast performance.
Bad points:
If this was the first time of purchasing a computer there is no instruction book only a 1 page sheet of instructions on how to set up! Not helpful for a 1st time user with little knowledge of computers. No indication that you only have trial access to packages epecially internet security and word excel etc. and that you still have to purchase these which adds considerably to the cost of purchassing aa computer.
