Jim, Manchester Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The size and quality of the screen is excellent. I'm finding that the nvidea video card is working well with all software i've used. I have even tried games, nothing too hard core but games like FM09, trackmania ect are all working seamlessly, so, even games requiring a more powerful system than these should work also.
Bad points:
Obviously the size and weight is not great but I think that's expected and the battery life could be better. I really don't like the fact that the power cable port is on the left of the machine rather than the back. Also, the keyboard is a little flimsy (though, all keys work just fine).

Confirmed purchaser Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
the screen size is good and produces a sharp clear images. operates very fast with a wide variety of programes from office based programmes to games mode
The wireless connection is perfect for around the home.
Bad points:
The Battery life is only about 40 mins average which means the plug adapter need to be on hand. A bit heavier than what you would like,however thisis only to be expected with a product that has this amount of features.
