Score 10.0/10
Good points:
+: 1080p

+: Variety of ports AND has a DVD drive

+: High range mobile CPU (24th best)
Bad points:
-: Microphone placement (above trackpad) picks up key pressing and touching of trackpad

-/: Dual graphics cards, slightly confusing on how they work

-/: Windows 8 can be confusing at the start to use, but eventually became not that bad!

-: Slighty heavy and bulky but I knew that before buying.

-: No secondary SSD for OS, however so far OS is booting quite smooth and swiftly

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very fast start-up due to the ssd, Decent sized screen, Full HD (1080p), Good speakers, Seems pretty sturdy, Decent GPU for a Laptop. Overall it's a really good Laptop. Great for watching Netflix etc as well as games.
Bad points:
It's a shame that the secondary HDD isn't a Hybrid SSHD drive which would make the games stored on it load a bit quicker. That's just me being fussy though!
