Roy, Bexhill Home and business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Laptop excellent. Nice design and a very nice feel to the keyboard. I've had other laptops where the keyboards drive you crazy. Weight and battery life surprisingly good for a 17" (much better than my Acer). Great video card.
Bad points:
A recovery CD/DVD with an operating system and laptop drivers would have been a good idea.
My first experience of Windows Vista which is dreadfully slow and cluttered with unecessary programs - once you clean this up and disable unecessary startup's the machines speed is very good. If running with full Vista features you really need more than 2Ghz of ram.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Key pad spacious, screen appears larger than previous 17" laptop - perhaps due to screen resolution etc. Windows Vista easy to use and helpful instructions, laptop faily light in weight compared to Packard Bell. Everything about product is stylish, yet simplistic for ease of use.
Bad points:
battery life could do with being longer than 2 hours.
