Score 7.0/10
Good points:
i had a mac that died and can't afford another for a while, and this is not a mac but it's fine for what it is

the speakers are loud
Bad points:
the system is slow, i always get the wheel of death and the sound goes funny every now and then, the casing seems flimsy but it was not expensive so i can't really complain, you get what you pay for

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good 1TB drive; very light to carry; USB3 ports; Screen good contrast
Bad points:
CPU is underpowered (trade-off with battery life); Square-type power supply requires adapter if you ever need an emergency replacement (Buy NOW just in case!); No light to show disk usage; Fn keys have to be used via Fn key as the native keys do things
