David, Birmingham Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great looking piece of kit
Good battery life, use a Dell D630 as well and its awful in comparison
Huge screen, great for watching dvd's
HDMI cable to hook up to the TV
Bad points:
Not sure yet, starting to get more programs installed and seeing the odd bit of sluggish-ness but this could quite easily be the programmes as its only on one or two.
No Page Up or Down keys - trivial I know
The mouse/touch pad has in built volume/scrolling/zooming and the zooming can be annoying when on websites as you can zoom in by accident depending on how you position your hands
