Colin, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its got a really nice screen with almost HD quality graphics for running DVD's etc. I watched TV shows on it and it was really good. Vista runs at a decent speed as the laptop has 3GB of memory.

Nice big hard drive for storing all my data. Not too heavy considering the size of the screen.
Bad points:
The keyboard!! It has to be the worst keyboard I have ever used. It has a flat design and the keys don's seem to make proper contact. With saying that there is a separate numeric keypad which is useful.

The keyboard is functional and does the job but I would not like to spend all day on it.

Good points:
Good machine, only let down by Vista operating system, which is truly awful.
Bad points:
This laptop came with Vista. Although I had used Vista a few times before, I didn't realise how unbelievably bad and user unfriendly it is compared to XP. Converting to Windows Seven effectively adds to the cost of the laptop, hence you don't get as good value for money. So I would say to anyone looking at a laptop, don;t even look at Vista machines, go for Windows Seven.

Good points:
The laptop is really fast and as i bought it with a graphics card already installed ( a radeon) it made running games very easy and quick,it handles all rpogrammes smoothly,though i have never tried to run anything that is incredibly demanding but for casual use including work and most games it performs very well.
Bad points:
the battery life is a little short but for the most part i use it in the house so i can have it plugged in.

Good points:
For a reconditioned unit,it does exactly what i wanted it to do, not sure about vista but there's always the option for windows 7. but overall good package.
Bad points:
battery life doesn't seem to be that great, but to be honest haven't really tried it out mainly for home use, seems to last for about and hour and a half.
