Roger, Skelmersdale

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Does everything I need and has all I want of a computer.
Bad points:
The casing is rather flimsey but that doesn't seem to affect the performance - I am told by others who know more about these things that all laptops tend to be like that now.

Smart looking good all round laptop with an excellent display.
Bad points:
Not impressed with Windows 7. Slow to boot up and slow to display the desktop. I would prefer a good Linux OS like Novel SuSE.

John, Morecambe. Lancs.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I rate this machine highly in it's price range for appearance, fitness of use, and reliability. It does eveything required of it well, and is an excellent everyday / main school machine for all the family. First installation is very smooth, and the system / work recovery backup is also very good. Together with Windows 7 it makes a good all round laptop computer.
Bad points:
Like many more, this model has been around a while, but it is still 'Up there' with more recent machines.
