Laurence, Harrogate General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
really useful side number pad.
fast at proccesing info/programmes.
Bad points:
power lead plug in should be in the back of lap top and not the side,
should have a volume button on the laptop as well as the one on the screen.
she shiney black case looks real good but attracts finger prints really easily would have been better with a mat finish.
arrow keys could have been a bit bigger
don't really see the point of the button beside the power button, this should be replaced by a volume button.
these are only very minor things nothing is perfect but this comes close. would recomend highley.

Mr B, Cardiff General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Plenty of RAM, good memory, great performance for a general user like myself. I'm currently a student and use the laptop just for web browsing, writing essays and the occasional game. I researched the market quite alot and I am positive a got a great deal for my money. The HD screen is delicious, watching high quality video via youtube, bbc i-player etc makes the viewing experience just that bit better. There is also plenty of ports, one in particular i do like - the hdmi port. I currently have it connected to a large LCD television and so I can have two independent monitors running two different "interfaces" for example on one monitor i can have a movie playing, on the other monitor i can have microsoft word open, its really useful!
Bad points:
The only few problems I have encountered using this product are as follows;
1. The battery life is not great, after watching a movie or browsing the web for a couple of hours you find yourself plugging the laptop back into the mains
2. Sometimes when you open a web browser the screen starts flickering for some strange reason ! However, if you minimize the program then open it again it stops the flickering thing. So not a major problem!
3. This one is more of a desire than a problem but anyway... In the box you just get the laptop and the cables I would have liked a protective sleeve or some form of protection ! Quite picky I know, but I can have a moan if I want :P
