Peter, Ashby de la Zouch General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bought this specifically to run Adobe Photoshop Elements 12. Have found the processor more than adequate to cope with the demands of the software.
Previously used Windows 7 and initially worried about the new Windows 8.1 layout. However, being used to using an I-pad and smartphone, the transition to Windows 8.1 was quite easy.
Very pleased with this laptop and would definitely recommend.
Bad points:

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
a great machine now its up and running
Bad points:
had to pay £72 extra to have it looked at as it had been delivered with apps on that caused terrible problems with the speed and general performance... BEWARE when buying a refurb!! It has a design fault due the fan being so low down and causing it to overheat if no air gets under it. it is now propped up by 2 pens.
