Lorraine, General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Volume range better than my previous laptop. Not too heavy.

I like the power2go software one of my favourites that come with it.

If you want a laptop for everyday use like internet surfing, emails, and so forth it is fine. I haven't stretched it to see how much it will function so cannot comment on its technical ability that much. It does enough for my needs. Which is small amount of surfing, emails, skype, and some catch up tv.

The recipient on the skype says I was clearer than before,so this may mean the camera is better quality than my previous laptop although I don't know anything about what the camera is on this machine. That is feedback from the other person when | used skpye.

The battery seems reasonable better than my previous, but its early days.
Bad points:
There are not lights on the laptop to say things are in progress. For example the 'on' switch, nothing lights up, no light to say wifi is turned on or capitals. Design is very basic. It doesn't handle multiple use very well, runs slow. eg) doing several tasks at once, like downloading and surfing at the same time.

It seems sluggish connecting to the internet and sometimes starting up compared to my previous laptop. I don't have huge amounts of stuff on it either.

It looks cheapest compared to my last one, but if looks is not important then that wouldn't be an issue, but the lack of lights to say what is on and off is a problem for me especially number lock and on switch and wifi. Becomes more of an issue if something isn't working like internet, you can't eliminate the problem easily like if the wifi is connected because no light to show it is. Very strange, but keyboard is very cheap looking.

No actual software disks, it's all installed.
