Good points:
Looks beautiful, is super light and had great usability!
Bad points:
The battery last for about 2 and half hours which I know isn't bad but it could always be longer couldn't it? Also it comes with Microsoft Works (not Word or Excel) which means you have to buy additional software if you want to be compatible with evry other computer in the country!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Really small for a good price. And not too small that its unpractical (I am a uni student who spends a lot of time facebooking and ebaying). I just have a zippy laptop case from muji and literally throw it into my normal handbag. (Carrying around the battery plug in thing is not fun though).

Battery life is ok, about 3 hours but it is great because the battery icon tells you how much life you have down to the last minute so you are not caught short.

BUY IT!
Bad points:
Because of its size I can't play sims2 but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make, otherwise I would have had to go for a bigger laptop.


Erm, thats it really. I have had it for about 4months so maybe the bad stuff hasn't materialised yet. Or maybe it is just great!!

Tim, London/Essex I own five machines

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Outstanding price for a sub 2Kg notebook. I bought one in September 07, which my girlfriend broke, and could find nothing better with which to replace it other than another X59.
Bad points:
1GB RAM is stingey. Information on upgrading is sparse/vague/contradictory, but I upgraded to 2GB with cheap RAM and no problems.

Power socket is a weak point. If you bash that it can break the internal connections and require a new motherboard. That's a £300 repair. The design could be improved to avoid such easy damage.
