Good points:
Beautiful design, compact, lightweight. It has everything you need and more!
Bad points:
The battery life goes really fast, even if it is charged to 100%, it said in the specification that it was supposed to last for 2 and a half hours, i'm lucky if it lasts for 1.

sarah, birmingham General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
looks good, is quiet, runs pretty fast, can open mutiple applications without worrying about crashing
Bad points:
sometimes the scroll on the mouse pad stops working, but its rarely needed anyway, if anything it gets in the way. sometimes explorer crashes but rarely and u can easily just click the exit button and it gives the option of restarting your current pages, it takes about ten seconds to do so.not long at all
