Score 9.0/10
Good points:
compact, quick for web browsing. nice design
Bad points:
@ and " shortcuts are the wrong way round for some reason, have some issues occasionally where i lose connection to bt homehub. sometimes it is difficult to use linux for upgrading programs (probably a case of preference to windows and not really a fault)
