Liam, Often on the move

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
It is slim
Bad points:
It is not very fast and the windows 8 system is terrible. It was never fast and for all this processing power you would think you could open an application in under 10 seconds.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, slim with good battery life.
Bad points:
Only two USB ports on the left, no good if your right handed or use a mouse then one is permanently used.
Feels cheap and plasticky especially the screen hinges. Time will tell!
Trackpad is hit or miss, sometimes it works well other times it's useless (I use a mouse all the time now)
Windows 8 installed, but has to update to Windows 8.1 when turned on (took forever when all you want to do is use your new laptop!) Bought for GoPro video editing on the fly, but reverts back to onboard Intel HD graphics rather than use the Geforce 720m (You can set this in preferences, but seems to change all the time)
Webcam is very grainy even in bright light.
Screen not as sharp as I would have expected. HD Movies look very SD!!

Its only a low end NVidea GT720 graphics card
Cant upgrade standard 8gb DD3 ram

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this laptop for my son who is starting his A levels. It's a well spec'd machine, light and a fantastic price.
It performs well running the games my son plays (world of tanks etc) and runs all the graphic applications for his photography really well. Apart from the trial version of MS Office and McAfee antivirus it's not full of any useless "bundled garbage" software.
My son has taken the switch from Windows 7 to Windows 8 better than I was expecting, so he now knows more about windows 8 than I do. I suggest anyone not familiar with windows 8 takes the time to go through the supplied tutorial/guide rather than trying to figure things out by themselves through trial and error.
One aspect we did struggle with was the upgrade to windows 8.1 - I think this was caused by us updating all the drivers, including the video driver, before we started the process.
We encountered a "BSOD" on the final reboot sequence, complaining about an incompatible driver.
After about 4 attempts we ended up having to disable the possible culprits, including the video driver in the device manager, before the upgrade would work. Following the upgrade to 8.1, we enabled the devices and installed the latest drivers no problem.
I also bought the ASUS wireless mouse (windows 8) compatible (5 button) - some mice don't state they are Win8 compatible so err'd on the side of caution - just in case.
Only other thing from me is that the caps lock lights is bottom left whereas I am used to them being top right (or on the key) - but it's not me that will be using it much.
I can't comment much on the battery life as it's either used at home for short periods on battery or plugged in or
at 6th form for short periods on battery, so around 3-4 hours usage is enough - the power options let you manage system performance so you can adjust this to stretch out the time more and enable sleep etc if left unattended on battery.
Overall, my son is very happy with the machine and we would highly recommend it.
Bad points:
Upgrade to Win8.1 was a pain but got there in the end.
Caps lock lights at bottom left.
