William, Coatbridge

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Linux OS is easy to use and has all the features I could need. Boots up and is ready to surf quickly. Extremely quiet in operation. As small and light as claimed - very portable. Perfect for it's purpose.
Bad points:
Battery life isn't great if you were to be using this product on the move alot. I mainly use it around the house so it hasn't been an issue. Struggles a little with video playback - iplayer a little juddery.
