Andrew, Norwich General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Style, solid feel to nice regular keyboard, interesting user/pointer interface, quite sensitive, probably more of a boon to a speed typist who works with multiple documents. Terrific graphics, really fast internet handling large files with ease.
Bad points:
Nothing really except for average battery life away from home and the pre-loaded operating system, Win 7. My favourite being XP with outlook express for its user friendliness, a system not recognised by Win 7 despite all the tricks explained on the net!!!

Mr B, southampton General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks smart, graphics are very fast & clear for my profesional rc flight simulator. Screen is perfect size. I got this as a replacement for my very old PC which needs repairing & have found this to be a 1st class replacement for it. For me this Laptop is amazing.
Bad points:
I have no experience with laptops & so i don't know what expected battery life is?? It lasts around 3hrs using it at full potential. I could get loads more from it i guess if i adjusted the settings but i am not concerened with this as i only use it at home. This is why i only gave a 7 for battery life meaning a 9 overall so read this as a 10 if i am wrong.
