Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Chose this one as read good reviews and it hasn't disappointed. Good clear screen, quick start up, everything works.
Bad points:
Nothing major. Battery doesn't last long, a couple of hours, but tend to use it on mains. Heavier than I thought, also find touch pad a little awkward at times though used to using a mouse. Wish they would make the outer casing of material which doesn't show marks every time you touch it.

Peter, March Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great lap top, very fast I use it for my University work it has more than enough memory to cope with my studies. The built in web cam is great for my online classes no hesitate thus far in recommending this laptop. Unlike some laptops it has a very sturdy casement & a very neat key board, quiet running & doesn't overheat like rival models
Bad points:
No real bad points to highlight except if you are carrying this kit around with you it can be a tad bulky
