Good points:
Quite a good all round Laptop for general use
Bad points:
Comes installed with windows 7 pre service pack 1 and was a devil to install updates and service pack 1. It took 3 factory resets before we discovered what you need to do is download service pack 1 manually from Microsoft and install this before any other auto updates ! Shame it couldnt have come with Service pack 1 already installed with Windows 7 really as this would have saved hours of stress !

Ken, Kingswinford West Midlands General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good fast machine.
Bad points:
Advertised as windows 7 64bit, but was actually factory set up as 32 bit,so in fact there are 2 systems not compatible until reset to 64 bit. This caused some confusion.
Sound settings ok with earphones,but weak volume without,probably set to comply with EU rules on health.
To get louder volume,change to American settings,if you can work it out.
Far too many unneccessary Screen Icons on factory settings.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good well rounded laptop with no issues found.
Nice design
Light and easily mobile
Bad points:
Battery life a little low but good enough for my uses.
The scrolling feature is temperamental and not as useful as just having a scrollbar to the side of the touchpad.

Peter, Carlisle Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
good keyboard though slighly sensitive. Overall very pleased with the product with one drawback.
Bad points:
I replaced Win 7 with Linux Ubuntu 11.04: there is an issue with this - the Hibernate/Suspend facility does not function - lid down or hibernate/suspend causes the pc to lock-up on a black screen. the only way out is to remove and re-insert the battery. Disappointing in an expensive machine.
