Jakky, Dunfermline Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Battery life is excellent and perfect for social use especially if away from home. I can easily get 7 hours of use out of mine. It looks good, I have the red coloured one, and when used on holiday recently it received a few admiring comments.
Bad points:
I bought mine to use for business emails etc whilst away from home. The machine is far too slow for this and I would not recommend it in a business capacity. In fact, an associate did ask my opinion and I recommended against it. Now using it only for home internet browsing.
