James, Barnoldswick Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Reasonably quick, no problems with overall performance, lightweight, has USB3, good sized hard drive
Bad points:
Touchpad is pretty insensitive, sometimes it has to be tapped pretty hard to make it function. My other main complaints are about W8.1, so not the fault of the laptop

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great laptop, lots of storage and works fantastically.
Bad points:
The battery is the only downside I would honestly say. It lasts 2 hours at best on a good performance.

Terri , Bournemouth General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's fast, it does everything it should, it looks great, it's light to carry, it starts very quickly (my old laptop takes ages to start)
Bad points:
I'm not too thrilled with Windows 8. Still trying to get my head around some of it, but that's got nothing to do with the actual laptop its self, just the operating system.
