Bob, Uckfield Music, gaming or video fan

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Light
Bad points:
Shuts off if I pick it up on the left hand side. The pointing pad doesn't have a defined set of buttons and makes an awful clicking noise which is immensely annoying. The pad isn't very sensitive resulting in repeat touches being required. . Slows down severely when using more than 1 function. Its my own fault as I went with price over performance. Never again. Go for a more powerful, expensive model.

Geoff, Reading General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bought for plodding round the internet, email and above all homework for a child, it succeeds.
Bad points:
Windows 8 came loaded and requires adaptation for those accustomed to earlier versions. Also it's not touch screen and Windows 8 prefers that it is. None the less everything can be learned and got round. My daughter finds no barriers.
Can get very slow if you endlessly just close the lid so needs proper shut down from time to time.

Andrew, salisbury

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
cheapest in the shop
Bad points:
horrible mouse pad with right click/left click switches, in one unit. They actually do go "clunk". Keep accidentally moving the mouse instead of using the click buttons.
