Richard, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good connectivity, good multimedia, good webcam, intel chips, fairly good sound. Can play games but not on high settings.
Bad points:
These are recon laptops and it is a bit hit and miss as to what you will get. Vista 32bit is installed not 64 as HP advertise. Lots of bloat software from HP that doesnt work too well, ie HP update software. Screen is very reflective with any daylight even from a window. On the heavy side.

Euan, Glasgow IT Expert

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Battery life is good
Over performance is good (especially witha fresh install of vista x64)
Remote control that fits in expresscard slot.
Spare SATA HDD bay for a second drive
Good sound with triple reflex bass underneath
Price is good for a machine which is just like new.
Bad points:
Not vista 64 bit as stated in the overview for this model,
Has way too much bloatware,
The right hand usb ports should be placed behind the blu-ray drive,
Audio ports are at the front rather than side.
