Fred, Lytham St Annes General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A speedy laptop that perfoms well. Well designed and good value.
Bad points:
Battery perfomance is not that good. OK if you plug in before power drops below 12% but don't let it drop below this level.

It has windows 7 64 bit. My old card games will not play. I did not know anything about 64 bit windows. It was not made clear on the web page that this laptop had the 64 bit windows. I had never heard of 64 bit windows.
