Adam, Yeovil

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Nice, high quality, large lcd screen.
Easy-to-use touchpad and keyboard
Enough USB ports to multi-task (3)
Bad points:
After a while, especially if you have as much media as I do, the laptop is no longer as responsive and has to be scanned VERY frequently to be kept in good running order.
As computer is on Windows Vista, the 1gb of RAM struggles to cope with the operating system, therefore, putting in another 1gb stick of RAM is highly recommended.

Sam, Rushden

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great design, fan on side (helps prevent overheating), speakers on front (handy when lid down), hard wifi button, battery life fairly good due to core2duo. Only problem was with not keeping time - there is a software fix (takes 2-3 mins) available from packard bell for this - don't let them take your laptop in or reinstall your operating system! Good screen. Great processor, ram size and fast hard disk.
Bad points:
No PC expansion slot, no hard volume buttons, Graphics card OK. Had trouble finding solution to the time keeping issue - only got solution as I was so insistent and had enough tech knowledge to discount other options!
