David, Blackpool General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Solid construction, very good screen, good battery life, dual drive bays as standard.
Bad points:
Ran incredibly hot, to the point where it could not be used on your lap. Overheated twice in three weeks to the point it shut down.
It's a great machine but it's poor cooling makes this machine unusable.

Ashleigh, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It's quite powerful, but no where near as good as the current range that HP offers with the 2nd generation i7's.
Bad points:
Heavy, rubbish battery life, layed out weird.

They squished the keyboard into a much smaller space than necessary. Really they should have spread out the keys a bit and made the keyboard fit the full width.

Leaves me thinking that the design was not very well thought out... there's so much empty space on the base of the laptop.
