Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's fast, efficiently, quiet and sleek. Everything a good machine should be. The keyboard is slimline, which not only invites you to type on it, it practically commands you too (and seems to be the easiest to work on). It's battery life is admirable, I've timed it going for almost five hours. It's graphics card might be underpowered for gaming on super-high detail, but it's powerful enough to run most games in high enough quailty to make use of the HD screen.

It's CPU may not exactly be an Intel i7, but for a Pentium, it gives the i5 range a damn good run for it's money

On the whole, a damn good buy, I expected something like this to cost over five hundred, but it appears not!
Bad points:
Well, the keyboard design is great, save for the fact that the slimline keys do catch a lot of rubbish directly underneath them, which makes cleaning quite difficult. Another problem is the machine's inabilty to get past the boot screen if you have something plugged in that's charging during boot (like a phone)

I also have concerns about the power button; it feels a little weak and somewhat fragile.
