Confirmed purchaser Nothing really lol

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I think that the best part about the above laptop is that it does not over heat, my old laptop used to burn my leg if it sat there too long but the one above is very good for keeping a stable temperature.
Bad points:
I feel that the only bad point with the above laptop is the windows vista, when i am installing something it keeps wanting authorisation from the administrator but i am the only user of the laptop so that can be quite annoying.

Good points:
Lovely large screen and aesthetic design. Energy Star product (lower energy use). Reasonable battery life compared to other laptops I've had. I like having the additional number pad to the right of the keyboard, the webcam and 5in1 card reader. Overall I'm really pleased with my purchase.
Bad points:
None that I have found so far!
