Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Quiet laptop, no noisy fan or disk drive. Excellent matte screen. Scrabble tiles, very good. Two usb ports each for usb 2 and 3 devices but had to purchase powered usb 2 adapter to give 3 further ports - no problem. Comes with HDMI out. I purchased this item for under £600, at reduced price; more than that and its not really worth it. Solidly built. Speakers are good quality. A previous purchase of this model crashed on day 1 but, so far, this laptop has been reliable.
Bad points:
I don't like 16x9 screen ratio but its difficult to find other display ratios on the market together with desirable matte screen.
Hard drive is only 5200 rpm, a bit slow powering up; although quite quick from hibernation mode.
Norton bundled in which seems continually to interrupt; I use AVG, so swapped it in and uninstalled Norton.
PC has an analogue picture out, which is pretty useless in the digital age.

Richard, Sleaford Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great screen. Excellent graphics. Good compromise of price against performance for gaming. Plays many recent games at high or ultra settings (inc Farcry 3 at Ultra) without problems, helped by use of Win 7 over Win 8 - great move ;-)
Battery life is good; up to 6 hours playing video from the massive HDD. The built-in speakers have phenominal quality and volume; everyone comments favourably on them.
Bad points:
None so far: Native resolution is only 1366x768 (which I knew before I bought) but it works well for this size laptop; you need to connect to a larger resolution screen for full HD quality.
Overall, at this price point, I have seen NOTHING better for gaming, and video or music playback.
