Vicky, Wales General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
my old laptop was small & slow with awful battery life. This one is nice & fast with a good size screen & so far I've had approx 3 hours battery life & then plugged it in before it's warned me its running low. Love the separate numeric pad & the keyboard is good too. Mouse is easy to use & responsive. Doesn't get hot on my lap even after hours of use
Bad points:
nothing comes to mind after a few months use

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light, battery long life. Unlike purchase 6 months ago, did not have to change 64 bit Windows to 32 Bit windows. Seems they have now made it do both. Everything I would expect from a decent laptop
Bad points:
Same as all other models. Would prefer taller narrower screen (like they used to be). Don't need the number keypad, but they all seem to have them now.
