Most helpful reviews

Simon, Winchester Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, well built, no bloat-ware or other rubbish installed (apart from obligatory anti-virus) and good performance for the price.
Bad points:
No scroll on mouse pad, somewhat weird keyboard configuration, and my DVD drive button is broken! Can't be bothered to return the laptop for something so small as I can just eject from the drive icon, but makes me question the quality control.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The laptop stays incredibly cool which is a big plus as usually I am uncomfortable with laptops over heating.
Bad points:
Had issues with sound but resolved these. The keyboard isnt that great. sometimes doesnt register key strokes. The fan is rather loud. I also would recommend going direct to pc specialist as you can get a higher spec for just few extra pounds
