Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good solid design and looks smart.
Bad points:
This laptop would have been rated much better if it did not come with Windows 8 which is complicated and cumbersome. After a month I am still struggling with it so for speed I turn to my ipad. Why complicate a perfectly good windows 7?
