Dave, Greater Manchester General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Does what you need for general web surfing/office use etc
Bad points:
Not the best performer, 2GB of RAM on the way as only 2GB on board but it's the more expensive DDR2. The row of keys on the left of the keyboard drive me insane and there's no way to switch disable them. I end up launching Power DVD or losing my web form and heading to the home page when I just wanted to press the tab or shift keys! Silly, silly design. I also hate that the F keys are special function keys (volume up/down etc) by default and you can't switch this so when I want to ALT-F4 to close a window I have to ALT-FN-F4 or refresh a page FN-F5 arrghh so annoying!
