Ray, Chelmsford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Seems very capable for the money. Runs Vista OK as long as you turn off all the bells and whistles! The graphics where a concern for me because I wanted to watch WinTV and DivX movies, but its proved not to be an issue.
Bad points:
It is rather heavy and the very shiney screen can be annoying in some lighting conditions.
