Confirmed purchaser Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Worked straight out of the box with no annoying set-up procedure and very few irritating pre-installed programs which you don't need. Looks sleek, a good choice if you have it in a living room.
Very quiet operation, again a good choice if your'e using it in a living room or if you're sensitive to fan noise. Doesn't overheat - I have it on a sunny desk and the temp outside is around 25degrees.
Bad points:
Heavier than many but as I don't intend to carry it around much that's not a problem. Tight fit in standard laptop cases - I had to take it through customs in Tesco hessian bag! Maybe not a good choice if you have to move around a lot.
