Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quick and powerfull, running multiple programmes with ease. Wireless working is eay to set up and works a dream.
Screen quality is a delight. Keyboard also has avery nice quality feel with a full keypad and number pad plus leds for caps lock and number lock ( often omitted on cheap keyboards).There is also a very discrete button (with led) to isolate the touchpad - this can be useful to avoid accidental movement of the curser when using a mouse instead of the touchpad. Not that a mouse is really needed - the touchpad is excellent.
There is an internal microphone to use with thebuilt in webcam. The machine is very quiet in operation.
All in all this computer is a pleasure to use.
Bad points:
The battery life has to be the one serious failing of this machine. A full charge will not give more than one and a half hours of use. This does not bother ME much as I have it plugged to the mains 99% of the time, but some users might find it annoying.
Other than that, I find that the lid flexes slightly unless opened with both hands - not really a problem and partly a function of the good strong hinge, but I worry a bit about the screen's ability to withstand flexing. And the last gripe - the sound from the speakers could never be called loud and isof mediocre quality.
