Patrick, Ashford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
it handles basically every task which I need doing and it can play the most up to date games. It rarely crashes and is just generally awesome. Sound quality is really good for a laptop.
Bad points:
Dust appears to be magnetically pulled towards the screen which isn't a major problem but after a while gets really annoying. Despite its amazing spec it still can not play the very most up to date games on the graphic settings that i would have liked to have been able to.

Ralph, Leuchars, St Andrews

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good looking, sounding, and performance (the graphics card is up to the latest games).
Bad points:
Very reflective screen, which both makes it hard to use with windows or lights behind you, and also shows up every greasy finger-mark! Secondly, the battery life is poor, which is very disappointing seeing as it has the very latest of the AMD processors designed for low power usage. Finally, it gets very hot if actually on your lap or a cloth surface, ie you'd be recommended to put it on a flat hard surface and not onto fabric.
