Rory, London Nothing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is great value for money. Easy to use, very reliable, fantastic screen and space saving. I'm very pleased with my purchase
Bad points:
The pre-instlled Norton software is a pain because I cannot uninstall it but I suspect this is a personal intellect problem rather than a performance issue.

Kevin, Kelty I am an artist

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's light, does what I want and is value for money.
Bad points:
The use of the cellophane over the screen - can't get it all off, especially round the edges so it looks unsightly. I am scared to use a knife or anything sharp in case I damage the screen. Very bad!
