Simon, Bristol

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Seems to work very well (no problems as of yet). Fast processor (I'm glad I went for a faster processor than I would have got had a I chosen something with 4gb RAM -rather than 3). RAM seems totally adequate for my purposes: I use a music editing/creating programs a lot and they have worked without any problems thus far. Neat design with nothing too fancy. Very big screen.
Bad points:
The battery doesn't last that long (about 2-3 hrs) but I was expecting a lot worse after my previous laptop! ...and it's pretty decent for the money I spent.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
very fast processor, good for all applications & the games I've played, and for 3D modelling and animation. Also wireless works well even when skyping....along with integrated webcam. Larger keyboard with separate number pad great for anyone like me with fat fingers. Had mine 6 weeks (the laptop; not my fingers) and hasn't missed a beat. For the money a superb all round package.
Bad points:
A bit on the heavy side and battery life isn't great at around 1.5 to 1.75 hrs even on power saving mode. Used it a few times on a plane to watch DVD but always seems to run out of steam about 10 minutes from the end of the movie. Having said that 17" laptops aren't generally bought primarily for their portability. Shiny top a magnet for grubby fingermarks. Sound is a bit tinny at times but ok for a laptop.....plus I generally use headphones which compensates

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good design, acceptable battery life, very good speakers, perfect keyboard, very good touchpad and good performance for no-gamers.
Bad points:
Not good for games, very slow performance on graphic demading applications due to the Nvidia 9200M GE GPU, CUDA Driver cannot be installed because the graphics adapter's name suffix is GE instead of the original Nvidia one, GS.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Large screen, good battery, runs reasonably cool.
Bad points:
Power supply is molten hot, mouse pad keeps failing and needs reset, took ages to get the wifi connection to remain stable. Having a numpad takes a while to get used to on a laptop.
