Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice large screen that is crystal clear. The keyboard feels like a true typing keyboard with good size keys.
Battery life seems very good
Bad points:
Not too sure about the HP director. I clicked to action the advisories and all strange things occurred like messages stating that HP advisor was being re-installed etc. In the first couple of weeks I was experiencing some strange flickering of the screen when using internet explorer but that seems to have gone now.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The screen is huge, clear and bright.
Can't really comment on the battery life and it's used as a desktop replacement and is always plugged in.
Likewise with the weight, it's quite heavy but you'd expect that from such a large beast, but then it's not not really carried about so it doesn't matter, in my case.
Great design, pleasant to look at and use.
Came with Windows7 preinstalled, so there was no need to worry about upgrading it.
More RAM slots than usual allows expansion.
Bad points:
Screen is noticably flickery, but not so bad that it detracts from use.
The mouse is setup a little strangely but that can be fine-tuned in software.
Physically the mouse pad feels a little odd too, with it's smooth sides, but that's probably more to do with the fact that I'm used to Dell laptops that have clearly defined edges.

Graeme, Llangadog Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:

Nice solid design, looks good. It runs all my applications with ease. The display is excellent for watching movies/DVDs. Plenty of Hard Drive space and backed by the generous 4Gb Memory I believe this will run anything you can throw at it.I would(have done) recommend this model to all my friends.
Bad points:
At present I cannot honestly think of a bad point. I have only had it for a couple of months so this might change (but I don't think so)
