Mark, Cardiff

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small, powerful (processor) but yet fairly frugal on battery power.
Bad points:
A little short of memory on the system drive. With just (mainly) windows on there it sometimes gets filled up; I think the obligatory virus scanner etc. takes part of the blame though. Keep the installations on C drive down to a minimum.

Flamingo, Wolverhampton Style and looks come first

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Inbuilt modem, no dongle to get knocked about! Amazing looking and incredibly small and compact. Perfect for web browsing which is all I wanted it for.
Bad points:
No disc drive. Battery life could be better in my view but then as this is the first laptop I have actually owned it may be better then most I have no idea! Smartpad plays up fairly frequently - has a life of it's own sometimes but mostly only on startup and sorts itself out after a bit.
