Steve, Bournemouth Often on the move

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
- Good weight, very light for its size.
- Good sound quality with the Altec Lansing speakers.
- Reasonably good performance for the hardware.
- Great for watching films provided not too much in the way of natural light sources.
Bad points:
- First and foremost the screen is not matt finished so is impossible to use at times due to the reflections.
- HP software is awful and comes as mandatory install, forces Symantec products onto the user and should be considered nothing less than Adware/spyware.
- Windows 7, although considerably better than Vista, is still in its infancy and frought with bugs. Includes a very annoying rundll error that Microsoft refuse to acknowledge and correct. No option for Windows XP install.
- Not a games machine. Despite having decent enough hardware the O/S consumes most of them so games have to be tuned down.
- Battery life is quite short, about an hour and a half, in practice.
