Dan, Coghlan General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Extremely thin and light, perfect for students or people on the go. It looks superb, the battery life is good and overall performance is solid. The hybrid SSD drive provides 5 second boot-up and shutdown times which is also very useful.
Bad points:
The sound is quite poor and tinny. I'm also not a big fan of the touchpad but that's just down to personal preference.

Stephen, General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quick light, and decent battery life for all the size of it!
Also should be future proof for a few years as it has USB3 and as far as i am aware it will support a SATA3 SSD in place of the HDD, not that it is really needed for normal use as the cache SSD seems to function very well.
Bad points:
SSD gave up after 3 days use and it needed sent back twice before they detected the problem and sent a new one. Also screen is a bit too thin and flexible as when the lid is closed and the laptop is handled normally the keyboard marks the screen slightly; when the screen is switched off the letters from the the keyboard are visible on the screen where the screen has pressed against the keyboard.... not a big problem though it may be quite fragile.

Mark, Manchester General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very smart styling, slim and lightweight. Matt finish screen.
Bad points:
It doesn't come with a case but I guess that applies to most laptops.
Proprietory VGA connector only so not easy to connect an external monitor.
