Alex, Darlington

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant looks and finish, ultra-quiet and low-temperature running, even when you have a CD spinning inside you can hardly tell.
Doesn't seem to scratch too easily, touchwood.
Super fast and copes very well with multi-tasking and high-memory applications such as Digital Audio Workstations
Boots up really quickly
In-built speakers aren't too bad considering their size etc
Screen is crystal clear and bright
Keyboard easy to navigate, touchpad the same
McAffee anti-virus trial works right from the start and just runs in the background, doesn't pop up and bother you too much at all, with plenty of warning about when the trial runs out
Bad points:
The whole backup process is a little confusing...got the option to create a partition on the HDD for backup files when I first turned the laptop on. Did this, but then realised that a backup hadn't actually been created, just the partition.
Haven't managed to get the USB Sleep & Charge to work...I've only tried my phone and have a hunch that it's not giving out enough power when switched off to charge it, as when I unplug my phone, it informs me that I have unplugged it, but doesn't say that it is charging when it is plugged in.

Craig, Egham

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks great, really fast, good screen, nice keyboard, great connectivity, good battery life - a good all rounder.
Bad points:
Touchpad is located too far to the right so that I often brush it when I type, moving the cursor. Problem can be minimized using the included touchpad software settings. The shiny case also shows finger marks quite a lot.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Neat, easy to access (once I'd spotted the VERY slight differences in usual keyboard layout), and stylish!
Bad points:
The depth of the screen takes a little getting used to (I'm used to a square screen) - but that's minor.
