Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very fast, clear screen and excellent value for money
Bad points:
Battery life is short but virtually everyone will use this mainly as a desktop replacement rather than taking it on the road; but it does have that versatility if it needs to be used away from base, so an excellent purchase.

Mike, Manchester General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
First impression is this machine's sturdy build, strong hinges etc. Basically it has the typical sturdy build of a Packard-Bell but inside is the typical reliable Acer setup, enhanced by the massive 4gb memory (A matched pair of 2gb each - the best combination. The design/location of the Usb, Ethernet, Vga, Hdmi ports etc is well thought out and user friendly with all on the sides and none on the rear. The machine is a touch heavy for portability so is best suited as a replacement for a desktop. Performance is good, graphics fine and for me the best point is that it contains two massive 500gb hard drives. The advantage of two hard drives as opposed to multiple partitions is the ability to store ghost backup images on the second hard drive. Overall I am well pleased with this machine and consider it good value for money.
Bad points:
For me the only bad point is the poor battery performance which typically lasts not much over 90 minutes - but because of the power of this machine this is hardly surprising. But as aforestated this machine should be seen as an alternative to a desktop rather than a portable machine. So if thats what you want get a netbook !

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
comes to life and ready to use quite quickly,
Bad points:
no manual / handbook came with this machine .
unable to find lock to open lid, only to find there isn't one ,
on switch extremely well hidden in lid hinge, a manual might have helped me find it quicker !! .
touch-pad too sensitive, too often when moving cursor, a programme you have no intention of using , pops up .
or the one you are using disappears !! .
for three weeks I was unable to get machine to accept an SD card .
black keypad difficult for older users to see .
sometimes I have a lady telling me that I have email, and on others she is too busy with her knitting to reply .
when I minimize a programme it leaves the screen as before , but there doesn't appear to be anyway to recover it .

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Use tv dongle to get windows media centre and with the big 1tb hard drive i do not have to worry about over load. The picture quality for dvd and tv is just great. For me this is a good all round laptop and great value for money.
Bad points:
This laptop is a bit heavy, then again it is a big laptop with a big screen.
