Syed , London Often on the move

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
looks nice, sturdy, small charger easier to carry around.
Brightly colored screen but too reflective.
Has two graphics cards, a basic performance intel and higher performance nvidia. Switches between the two as and when required to save battery.
Brushed aluminum surface with chicklet keyboard.
USB and HDMI port hide behind cover.
Have installed ubuntu linux on it and everything works perfectly.
Good price to quality ratio.
Bad points:
Really bad touchpad. Had to disable it and get a wireless mouse to operate easily.
Battery life is too short. Lasted about 3 hours from full charge to dead under normal operations.
single button to switch off bluetooth and wifi at the same time.
The battery is built-in which is a big bad point. This means I can't even carry an extra battery to replace in case current one dies. Spilled water on keyboard on day one. Machine is safe but was dangerous as couldn't take out battery for quick shutdown. How to press the power button for a few seconds for hard shutdown which felt like an eternity specially when u have spilled water dripping out of the chasis.
Too heavy for the size.
Speakers are ok. Their position is not good as the are under the chasis rather than top over the keyboard.

Westy, Much Wenlock Business user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Looks. feels and performs great (apart from the mouse pad).
Bad points:
The mouse pad is a nightmare, very twitchy, it jumps around the screen with a life of it's own. I exchanged the laptop for the same model but had the same problem so gave up and went for a different brand.
