Stephen, Ipswich

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It looks good and performs well enough and the touch screen comes in very handy as does the media centre remote.
The keyboard is really nice to use as well with good response
Bad points:
The finish isn't quite what I would have expected after spending so much. The metal trim doesn't seem to line up everywhere and isn't smooth

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
touch screen is nice. could have done with a stylus but still cool.
the size is perfect. not too small that you can't read anything but not too bulky that you need to cordon off the area to use.
Bad points:
the swirly design is cool at first but after a few weeks starts to look gayish.
also the pouch you get is horrendous!!
sound is a bit on the low side but hook up a pair of headphones and you're fine
