Bev, Orpington General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Whilst not the first laptop I've used it is the first one I have owned of my own and I am extremely pleased with it. Without wishing to sound girly this laptop looks really good, lovely case and brushed aluminum keyboard surround is very nice. The keyboard is the best laptop keyboard I have used and really easy to type on and having a seperate numeric pad at the side is a nice feature. It was easy to set up and all in all good value for money. It is light to carry and feels lighter than others I have carried of a similiar size in the past.
Bad points:
I have had this laptop nearly a month and I haven't found any bad points yet.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very smart design. Nice big keyboard. Set-up was easy and was up and running in next to no time. Fairly fast machine with the software I have loaded.
Bad points:
The right hand USB slots are too close to the DVD Rom tray. If a large plug is in the USB the tray may have difficulty opening.
