Nathan, Manchester Programmer, Home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Multitouch pad is nice to use, the laptop is light and the battery life is decent for what it is (3-4 hours). Can't complain overall considering what I paid.
Bad points:
Webcam is very laggy and grainy. Screen colour/contrast varies a bit too much at different viewing heights for my taste. Have to tilt the screen right back to get reasonably accurate colours.

Bad points:
This is the first time I've gone to effort of leaving feedback for any product I've ever bought. I can't stress enough the disappointment I've had over this product and the poor quality it provides. It's unresponsive, incredibly slow, seems to have a mind of it's own and completely unprofessional. Writing this feedback took me around half an hour alone due to it's internet speed. I only started using this product recently as I went into hospital shortly after I purchased it, and after around 2 weeks of using it I cannot begin to describe how much hassle it has caused me and my university work. By the looks of things I fall out of the return dates and it's unlikely I'll get my money back, I'm left disappointed and generally annoyed as I'm going to need to purchase a new laptop whilst this gathers dust in the loft.
