Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is my third generation of HP laptop which I use almost exclusively to assemble and deliver image-intensive lectures.
It performs that function admirably.
Its slim lines and long battery life are ideal for work while travelling on public transport.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
perfect size for travelling but big enough to have the feeling of a 13' like the robust but individual design .Like the easy connectivity to TV
Bad points:
touch-pad is not as smooth to use as I am used to, the buttons are a bit heavy to push compared to the rest of the key board.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent laptop, nice design.
The keyboard design, screen quality, size and feel of the laptop are very satisfying.
iMac looks without the crippling costs and fanboi stigma.

Performance is very impressive, handles HD playback very well - connects to HDMI flat panel TV very slickly.

Power consumption is very good - if you turn off the wifi and bluetooth - I've managed to work during most of a 8 hour flight with a little power left to send an email over wifi on arrival.
Bad points:
For some reason if the laptop goes to sleep when the lid is shut then on resumption the mouse pad will not work.
Resolved by changing settings so that a shut lid puts the laptop into hibernate.

Rich, Billericay General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very stylish design. brushed aluminium shell, good compromise between weight, power & performance. Windows 7. bluetooth & HDMI
Bad points:
Chrome/mirror bezel on edge of case looks nice but is extremely prone to chipping /scratching - so beware contact with zips & belt buckles! - obviously I had not considered that "lap" use would poise such a problem on er..um... a laptop, and so very dissapointed my notebook lost its "pristine" appearance after only one week of use - am sure I had read somewhere this was purported to be made of a metal alloy but is looks/performs like chrome paint to me.
