Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very stylish, useful, and powerful. Speakers are surprisingly loud, and are easy to turn up and down, alongside the brightness- Numpad separate from the rest of the keyboard makes for easy typing when involving numbers and letters, and dual monitor support for HDMI/VGA connections, with an autodetect resolution feature. Even when using power-heavy programs, it does not heat up considerably; Can easily be used as a dektop replacement
Bad points:
Outside the keyboard, there is only the power button- other functions are integrated into the keyboard itself with use of the Fn key. Large size does make it difficult to find a laptop bag/case that will fit it.
Overall rating 10.0

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value for money. Great screen, speed and keyboard. Easy to use, very logical and great looking.
Bad points:
Finger marks show on gloss shell, but what a fantastic finish. Touch pad can be a bit difficult to use, I tend to use a mouse instead.
