Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This machine has the best keyboard I've ever used on a laptop. The screen is also exceptionally good. Perfomance in general is first-class, and battery life is surprisingly good for such a high-performance machine.
Bad points:
Only two gripes: Firstly, the paint finish on the trackpad and front speaker grilles wears away very easily. Secondly, it's a shame that a machine of this specification is only supplied with XP home. XP pro would be far more suitable.

Bad points:
Touchpad poor quality - it already has a bare spot where the colour has worn away! Otherwise no problems.
