Bought product for my twelve year old son. Ideal for doing all homework projects but still good enough to run his off line and on line games.
Bad points:
Tends to trip the fuse in the consumer unit when he plugs it in to the mains

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
i like that i can connect the laptop directly to my tv to watch movies. i thought the battery was at the lower end of power time but i've since found out its one of the best. its also one of the bigger laptops but i like that about it. overall i have no problems with it and now use it more than my desktop.
Bad points:
not one of the more powerful laptops but its more than enough for regular browsing, emails, etc. its only when you have quite a few programs running that you notice
