Lucy, General home user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Looks nice, really light and compact.
Bad points:
The spec is meant to be the same as the machine I bought two years ago at the same price but this is not any where near as quick or as good. Everything is slow to load and on screen the windows look old style Windows design - not new and slick as I would have expected or as they were on my Acer with Windows 7. Windows 8 and the apps are a nightmare and difficult to use. I don't feel this has been great value for money, to the point where the machine is so slow I can't help but wonder if I was even sent the right machine or that the spec on the site/laptop box is just wrong.

Philip, Nottingham Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
- Robust design
- Good keyboard and trackpad, like the included buttons.
- Matt screen (can be used in sunlight)
- HDD and RAM are acessible if needed
Bad points:
- No backlit keyboard
- Lack of included mini-VGA to VGA adaptor (this costs around £30 to buy)
- Windows 8 (loads of problems with updates/patches causing laptop to run slowly, I advise setting up a restore point after each group of patches is installed).
