Steve, Sydney - Australia General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Spectacular looking laptop. Backlit keyboard. Terrific Hi-Def screen. Very fast graphics. Amazing coloured lights on touchpad, in speakers and on lid panel. 4 usb ports. Heaps of HHD space and RAM. Solid feel. Strong build.
Bad points:
A bit heavy for a lap, but fine for tabletop. Battery is really only useful as a USP, lucky to get 50mins work time even with all the lighting switched off. The second HDD was installed but not configured so could not be accessed.

Mike , Newquay, Cornwall. Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Powerful dual core processor and dual SLi graphics carsd allow you to play the most demanding of games including Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2.
Illuminated keyboard allows for low light use and the high res 1920 x 1200 XWGA screen mean you have plenty of room for everything from editing to gaming.
Bad points:
Bulky and heavy......but considering the power of this machine it's expected.

Pete, Marlborough Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Screen (1920 x 1200) is excellent. Backlit keyboard option is a must. Loads of disk space.
Bad points:
Case lights and extra LCD display are a bit gimmicky, and it weighs a ton, but mine is more of a portable desktop replacement rather than a notebook.
