Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Can't find any information for instructions on how to use any of the software on the laptop. Took me over an hour to figure out how to use the bluray player as you can't use the mouse or play button on the pc and have to use the arrow keys and enter button.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Added an extra 4GB stick to bring it up to the max 8GB
Runs like a dream with windows 64 bit. I can have 6 virtualbox VM's running and it still responds snappily.
Was a bit unsure about the chicklet keyboard style but find it much nicer than expected.
Bad points:
The Action keys feature (which defaults to the function keys being special keys when pressed solo and function keys being enabled using the FN key) was annoying until I switched it in the BIOS. Unfortuneately this seens to affect the operation of the Ins/PrtScr key meaning itdefaults to PrtScr - a useless setting.
This is the only black mark, as I donl;t understand why they deel the need to mess around with what should be a standard.

Good points:
Its powerful and fast. The screen is nice and finger print log is pretty cool
Bad points:
the touch pad is awful; sluggish and unresponsive. Would def recommend getting a mouse if you buy this laptop. Battery life is also poor.
