Steve , North Devon

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good design and very thoughtful software for the novice or young users.Would suit family users as it does most everything you would need from your computer.Fast and efficient processors give access to software and internet.
Bad points:
I would strongly suggest following the instructions for producing the backup disks and updating the windows operating system before use, very time consuming and could be avoided by including a Vista backup in the pack. Display isn't bad unless it's facing bright light which can be distracting due to the reflection and the same can be said for the keyboard if you need to look at the letters to type. Not so good for producing music in the studio if that's your intention, that said, for everyday music,gaming e.t.c it outperforms most. A bit pricey overall.

Allen, Didcot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Really nice feel to the keyboard. Overall design is sleek and smooth. Picture quality very good.
Bad points:
Can never get access to it, due to the fact that the rest of the family are constantly using it. The freedom of the laptop is fab.
