Dave, Warminster Business user
- Good points:
- Very smart and well built machine. High spec too.
- Bad points:
- Problems from day 1 with mouse and audio being corrupted. Have requested a return. Could be a simple fix, but replacing the mouse driver had no impact. Not a fan of the Windows 8 GUI either.
