Andy, Bristol

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A really easy laptop to use. Has all that you need for day to day needs of general home computing. Very pleased I spotted this bargain as I was going to buy one that was definitely inferior for the same money.
Bad points:
I think the on line trial for Microsoft word is a waste of time, just get the real thing and load it.

David, Salisbury General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Slinky design which has attracted a lot of positive comments. Intuative to get started and has been a pleasure to use.
Certainly have been impressed with the quality of screen when using BBC Iplayer for example.
Bad points:
Nothing really - battery seems the only vulnerable point but might well be similar to other laptops and the keyboard is good although those used to laptops might take a while to get used to the number pad on the right of the keyboard.
