Beth, Barnsley Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
First off I would like to comment on the excellent battery life of this laptop; using just Microsoft Word, I can easily get 7 hours, usually just over 5 for general internet browsing and music and 2 hours for playing games such as the Sims 3, etc.
The speakers are excellent, brilliant sound quality and loud enough for all situations. The keyboard and touchpad are also very easy to use, and atheistically pleasing. The performance also matches up with the internal specs and it can multitask and handle demanding programs well.
Overall a brilliant laptop.
Bad points:
Can be loud when reading CD/DVDs and on my particular laptop it makes a rattling sound inside when typing or tapping on the right hand side, near the CD drive, though this is a very minor issue.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast Performance, Clear Screen, Fast Delivery(Ireland)
Bad points:
No Firewire Connection (woulda been nice). The Extras at checkout (essentail ones like quality checks not so much the software) bump the price up to 50 pound more than youd expect. You feel like a quality check before shipping should be standard.

Bob, Brigg Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Everything to be honest, it performs like a dream, battery life is excellent, hours and hours. i5 performs beautifully with massive disk space as well.
Bad points:
The only downside is that the shiny outside shows fingerprints, big deal! oh and the ham-fisted oaf using the keyboard!
