Andrew, Lewes General home user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Looks nice and flash, is light.
Bad points:
Lack of instructions, Hard to learn, complete change and not helpful to find out how it works. All the reasons i hate new computers. New things should make it easier for customers not harder to understand. Am using my old computer as much as possible as it is easier.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
With cashback, this was outstanding value for money
Good performance for the price - adequate for typical tasks, but you wouldn't want to edit video with it!
Bad points:
Not a big fan of Windows 8 but needed a Win8 system to gain familiarity with it.

Kevin, Edinburgh General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Compared to my old laptop this is much faster and lighter, but feels more rugged. The screen is brighter and clearer as well. Battery life is great and startup is fast.
Bad points:
Very few. I can't work with a touchpad - I prefer a mouse and that plugs in the wrong (left) side for me - so trailing wires.
The colour is not nearly as garish as the picture. And windows 8 is not as bad as you might think.
