its ok!
Bad points:
it feels really cheaply made, the keyboard is bouncy when you hit the keys, the flashy strips are peeling off after 2 uses and the case moves where the card readers and cd slots are.

Mark, Bicester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The design and the features packed into this laptop make it tremendous value for money, as I wanted plenty of "toys", but did not want to spend to much money in the process. The built in webcam, 802.11b/g, 2Gb memory and 17" widescreen seem to be features reserved for more expensive laptops, but I was surprised to find all of these in one package. The laptop was very straightfoward to get going from the box, and I was on the Web in no time!
Bad points:
The lack of any drivers or manual supplied with this laptop may make things more difficult for novice users. The only problem I have with this laptop is the circular mouse - sometimes when browsing, it has a mind of its own and the autoscroll feaure takes some getting used to, but generally this laptop is very good value.
