Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The screen is great - definitely worth going for the 17"
Very adequate for everything I need it for - upto and including all photoshop (CS5) tasks.
Its great having the large layout keyboard with the separate keypad - just makes it so useable. Keyboard is very positive to use and accurate too, no real problems with accidental touchpad contact.
Bad points:
Battery life is a little short but I can live with this just fine.
The software that its bundled with is a pain and I just want it to go away and stop pestering me - although if it bothered me that much I'd search the internet for a solution!!
I'd like an express card slot, an external SATA connection and more USB ports.
The single USB port on the left side fouls the mic plug if you place anything larger than a memory stick directly into it (such as a broadband dongle for example). The
