Paul, Warrington Professional home user.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Perfect specification, easy to set up, fast, responsive, versatile. Great large screen, plenty of space to get information in view when multi-tasking, no reduction in speed noticed when doing numerous tasks because of 3GB RAM.
Bad points:
Slightly heavy, battery life could be a little better, but no different to other laptops !!
