Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Smart Sleek powerful are the words which best describe this machine. This laptop really does give your moneys worth with so many connectivity options in addition to which it has a fair amount of memory and storage space. Another great feature I feel stands out and gives it an edge is the finger print access and the quality of sound generated from such a small laptop. This laptop is great for fun and work, i simply love it =D
Bad points:
The only bad points I can see with this laptop is that the processor could have been a Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo, also the battery life could have been slightly longer. How ever I still prefer this over similar leading brands such as the Dell XPS.

Terry, Worthing, West Sussex

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Compact, and a good size. Power comsumption is pretty good for the type of battery the unit has. The webcam is good quailty, sound is very good from the inbuilt speakers compared with my old (Dell) laptop. A sim card slot would be useful, rather than having to have bulky usb sim card dongals.
Bad points:
The touch screen buttons for the volume and wireless settings are not very responsive sometimes when the computer is in use, and i can find this anoying as you do not get the normal response you expect from a normal push button. Better interactive buttons for multimedia players would be much better (Stop, Pause, FF, RW, Play etc).

Good points:
Great little laptop, with the perfect size screen to keep it mobile. The glossy finish leaves a nice touch and goes well with the overall style of the product. Keyboard is nice and robust, so it doesn't feel cheap when using it. All the little features may not be necessary but they definitely do serve its purposes. The finger print reader makes it easier to log in to windows aswell as any sites on the internet. The touch buttons on the panel are easy to use aswell and adds an extra level of convenience, just make sure to upgrade your laptops bios so that the volume control is easier to use as it gives an indication of the level. The laptop also comes with a genrous 4gig of ram and a decent mid level graphics card, which so far seems to be able to play the lastest games. Overall, really pleased with the purchase.
Bad points:
Fan can get a little loud at times, depending on what program you're using and the battery life could be longer for a machine which tends to use alot of power. HP logo on the front of the laptop can get a little annoying, as their is no option to turn it off and is quite bright in a dark room, but these are really just little negatives for a great laptop.
