Good points:
Specification is generally good. Performs fast enough for most functions and graphics is great. HDMI connection is very useful.
Bad points:
The mouse/curser area is too slippery - would be better designed with a rougher surface like some of the other laptops.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Looks good and works well most of the time.
Bad points:
Occasionally runs slow, and freezes. I think this is mainly due to half the memory at least being constantly used by vista.
