Colette, Nottingham Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing sound quality, perfect for listening to music and watching films. Also when playing films they fill the screen.
The touch pad makes moving around windows 8 easy and simple.
There are many short-cut buttons, again for ease of using windows 8.
Bad points:
The space bar key can be a bit temperamental, it has to be pressed quite firmly which can be irritating when typing but apart from that this is one of the best laptops I have ever owned. Not only does it look extremely classy it is very efficient too and all that for under £500.
