Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I've had to hazzard a guess re: battery life as I keep my plugged in all the time. Also size and weight not really an issue for me as I don't really move it about. However the screen size is wonderful, keyboard superb as my previous laptop was so small in comparison that I kept missing keys when I typed. Speed is great too. Have had it nigh on a month and still have not managed to learn everything that is on it. However all applications used so far have been relatively easy, even for a luddite like myself!
Wish I'd had it when I ran my office!!!!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A very well designed Large Laptop. Excellent keyboard layout with a host of ports and connections.
It was easy to set up straight from delivery and after a short period of updating itself has performed flawlessly.
I have removed the bundled Anti-virus software (60 day Trial) and installed free AVG which is better.
It starts and loads very quickly certainly compared to my last laptop, but this is to be expected with the 4 gb of Ram and intel i3 processor.
I have been doing a fair bit of Analogue to digital tape transferring and it renders without any hitches.
I hope it continues to perform at this level. The built in HP back up software and help diagnoses bundles are useful too.
Bad points:
None really. My only observation would be that the shiny gloss finish requires a fair amount of cleaning to keep it looking nice.

Mark, Fareham Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A high spec and ergonomically designed laptop. Excellent provision of in/out ports covering most requirements. Particularly useful is the built in card reader.
Comes with a good selection of software and windows 7 is a useful improvement over xp once you get used to it.
Bad points:
Battery life us a tad disappointing, less than 2 hours if in constant use.
The high gloss finish and shiny screen are generally excellent but can make it difficult to see the screen in bright sunlight.
