Jason, Stroud

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Works well with Vista and the touch screen is quite responsive, battery life is also quite good when using the 8-cell battery.
Bad points:
Runs far too hot due to the AMD processor, also requires a BIOS change when first used to change the fan setting from always on to when needed.
Calibrating the touch sceen also seems to be hit and miss.
Very heavy when using the 8-cell battery.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Versatility of screen positioning.
Touch screen excellent.
Good keyboard and keyboard mouse.
Bad points:
Automatic screen rotation has stopped working; yet to try and get it fixed under warranty so the jury is out on after sales service!
Gets hot while operating, so, need to rest on something if being used as a 'lap' top.
