Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The design is great, has enough USB ports, comes with blu ray technology (that I've not had a single issue with) and runs like a dream! I'm very impressed with it. Graphics are great. The 3D functionality is awesome.. it's a little bit of a novelty thing though really.. I've tried to play games with the 3D function on and can't seem to manage to play for more than half an hour without my eyes wanting to glaze over.. luckily you can disable this feature and re-enable it with a simple press of a key on your laptop. The number pad is very useful. Display is definitely big enough and bright enough. Keyboard even lights up, but you can turn this off if you want. Webcam and onboard mic are fab. There's plenty of space to store everything.. the hard drive is split into 4 parts (which can be a bit tricky to work with if you're not very tech-minded) Doesn't seem to get too hot either.
Bad points:
Sound!! The sound quality is poor. Even on the loudest setting I can barely hear it. I managed to get around this problem by buying a Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700, which I highly recommend going with this product if you still wish to purchase despite the sound issues. My other gripe with it is the weight, it's a lot heftier than a lot of laptops, but I guess that's to be expected. Sometimes the face recognition can be a bit hit and miss too.. but luckily if it's having an off day you can get around this by providing your password instead. The keyboard requires a bit of hammering too, or maybe that's just because I don't press the keys hard enough when I type.. who knows?! I've not needed to use the instant boot-up (don't really see the point in it to be fair..) so I can't comment on that.
