Mrs J, Scottish Borders General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Decent speed machine, and good value for money
Bad points:
Took some time to set up - still not quite there, and this was not helped by having to get used to windows 8, which needed specific drivers for printers etc that had to be hunted down.
Unless you like that sort of thing, think about getting someone to do all the set up work for you and you will save yourself hours of frustration!
Also the telephone helpline no. given with the software purchased at the same time was a dead number, so no help there!!
