Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Completeness of the overall package including the inclusion of Adobe's Photoshop Elements and a reasonably decent protective sleeve
Ease of data transfer using the included X-Sync dongle
Good keyboard for a netbook
Easily lasts 6+ hours so can get in a full day's work when on the road
Bad points:
Screen's glossy finish is a drawback for me (but it does enhance the multimedia experience) so I've added a matt screen protector to make it more useable when out and about
Windows 7 starter is a miserable os, but I've upgraded this to Win7 Ultimate and the PB handles this easily
Only 1gb RAM which is a bare minimum, but I've upgraded it to 2GB and it happily multitasks though struggles a little with HD video (understandable given the low spec video chip)
