Paul, Northampton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bags of memory, fast intel duo core processor. Very fast. Looks great, nice wide screen. 1.3mp webcam and microphone built in. Soft touch keyboard and clever mousepad allow you to scroll and zoom in without having to select from the screen. Has a really nice chess program and some good smaplers. Windows 7 is a joy to use compared to previous versions.
Bad points:
Glossy screen can be a bit reflective at times eg. Bright sunshine. Some of the application software is trial only and can clash with existing subscriptions eg. I already had a McAfee subscription but the trial version keeps over-riding it and telling me its about to expire, even though i have downloaded my pre-existing software.
