Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Looks fantastic, ergonomic, vibrant and easy to set-up. More of an art piece than a computer
Bad points:
DEAD PIXELS! I loved it when i first saw it, but was on the phone to organise it being sent back within an hour of owning it. I counted 11 dead pixels on screen which were not noticeable until i opened a browser with a white background which showed up little black cluster spots on the screen. After researching this online, it turns out to be a problem with these units and being a graphic designer, it would drive me nuts to see little spots on the screen. Considering the reviews and the fact the whole unit has to go back in the event of a problem plus, it's upgradability was very limited, i decided to cut my loses and buy something else. Mac have branding spot on and these look great and had the screen been mint, i'd of kept it probably, but I am glad to have sent it back as apparently dead pixels can occur later on and this would have really annoyed me.

Ken, Attleborough General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very solid, nice looking, quality piece of kit.. very easy to set up..in fact was up and running in about 15 mins... wireless mouse and keyboard very neat and easy to use.. navigating the system is intuitive, having been a Windows user for a very long time, I was reluctant at first to change to the Mac... I have found the system easy to use, once I got used to the basics, which didn't take as long as I expected..overall a pleasant experience.
Bad points:
The software doesn't come with a word processing facility, considering the price of the unit you would have thought that a basic utility, I found that some old Quickime files I had stored on my old computer would not play on Quicktime Snow Leopard.. it told me I needed some more software to be able to play the files, but did not suggest which.. have not gotten around that yet, but in fairness have been too busy to look into it properly. The photo filing system seems a little bit bizarre but that is either me being a bit thick, or not having enough time to go through it properly.

Andrew, Pewsey General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up, clear and simple instructions and very intuitive bearing in mind I have only used PC's in the past. Fantastic screen is so clear and enables easy use of multiple open windows / applications. Very fast at everything we have asked it to do so far.
Bad points:
Not much software included BUT you know that when you buy it and most stuff can be done on relatively cheap additions.
