Score 8.0/10
Good points:
fully loaded with gf8600 and good connected (hdmi, esata, etc), comparing to other 15" this one is small and lightweight, casing is white with orange finish and not so boring black or gray.


Bad points:
battery life, screen is not equally lit, poor manufacture quality, missing bluetooth, but overall that's really good value for money

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks different to your average laptop. Has all the modern 'perks' that people need for general laptop use.
Bad points:
Not as fast as i expected considering its spec - this may be down to the Norton software though, which i understand affects the running speed quite considerably.

It does what it says on the box. And it has a number keypad.
