Most helpful reviews

Philip, Aldershot Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The size, weight and functionality are superb. I have the machine as a backup for my work. I have loaded ultimate windows 7 and ms office 2010 all work really well. The processor speed means I have to wait a little for some things to load but a small price to pay for the portability and functionality
Bad points:
The hinges for the screen seem rather light weight. I wonder just how robust they will prove to be.

John , London Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
As a travel photographer, I needed a way to backup photos whilst in the field and to be able to compose articles and surf the net, without being too heavy or taking up much space. This computer has the specs of a standard size laptop but is fractionally larger than a netbook, perfect for my needs. As a bonus, it came with a 64bit operating system and Adobe Photoshop.
Bad points:
None so far.
