Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good product, very nice large screen, reasonable weight
Bad points:
Battery life not long enough, if using without a mouse, keys too sensitive. Was not happy with initial set up and deciding how to split the drives. I have been advised tha I should not have done this but this is now too late and it can not be undone.

Tom, Portadown, CRAIGAVON, N. Ireland General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I knew little or nothing about Laptops and was nervous of moving over from my desktop. It had been giving a lot of bother and I felt it was time for a new approach. I love the fact that it takes up so little space and of course is portable. I tend however to uses it it only at my desk. I was fearing trouble in hooking up my printer but it all worked smoothly and I am happy overall.
Bad points:
None that I have identified up to this point. I was not keen on fact that it came with Windows 7 as I really liked WindowsXP but I persevered and am coping well.
