Score 7.0/10
Good points:
easy to switch on and off, good screen display
Bad points:
Can be a bit slow. The integral mouse takes some getting used to - it has a mind of its own sometimes. Came with Windows 2007 installed. Its not as easy to work with as windows XP. In fact each version is slightly worse than the one before = Bring back good old windows 98
