Rebecca, South Killinghome

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The laptop is overall nice looking. The widescreen option provides a good viewing area and unlike some laptop it has a separate number key pad, a useful function especially when using spreadsheets.
Bad points:
The graphics card is adequate for function of this laptop but does mean that it affects the overall rating of the machine which is disappointing as the rest of the machine's ratings are very good
