Mark, Essex General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A more up to date system brings into line with other technology available on the high street
Bad points:
Number kepad needed on right hand side and not just along the top of the keyboard.
A lot of old windows users will notice a lot of changes so will take time to get used to the difference

David, Cheltenham General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A good design and performance with the Intel Celeron Processor giving 5.7 speed on the windows performance index. Windows 8 is good once you get used to it over about a day and is very stable after 550MBytes of windows updates were installed; 2 were over 150Mbytes. The keyboard is very good and firm, not like a lot of others which are like a trampoline. Display is also bright and clear.
Bad points:
The first computer failed in that Windows would not activate or install any updates even after a full reset.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Start screen's tiles look good & are easier to use than a traditional start menu. Good value for money.
Bad points:
Many products have yet to be updated to function with Windows 8. My new Kodak printer was unknown to the pc for a long time & refused to connect via the Add Device function. This was resolved after advice from internet. Worst problem is my android phone does not seem to be compatible. I still can't load photos or music from it to the pc. I would check carefully that your devices can cope with Windows 8 before buying !

Anne-Marie, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
- MUCH more hard drive space than I expected!
- Overall good performance.
- Fantastic battery life.
- A great upgrade from any netbook.
- Would even be a moderate laptop for one who relied solely on their laptop for work and the like.
- Once Windows 8 is gotten the hang of, it's actually quite a nifty system. You'll miss it if you go on an earlier system on another computer.
- Overall, great laptop for work, social networking and gaming (although not ideal for the latter; still acceptable).
Bad points:
- Windows 8 can be a bit unwieldy (this is hardly a bad point!). EVERYTHING is massively different, not like the Windows XP to Windows 7 jump. Barely recognisable!
- No free trial of Microsoft Home Office- have to stick with plain old Wordpad or install a cheap alternative.
- Might be a bit more suited to younger users (I'm 18)- anyone not too great with technology will definitely struggle to get their head around it all.
- Hardcore gamers may find it slow and cumbersome for games (I didn't, though!).
