Sue, Crewe General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
slim, light weight and back lit buttons great for low light.
Bad points:
SCREEN: Please be aware that the thin screen is subject to accidental damage as it is so thin to make the machine light it has a tendency to break. The outside shell is not strong enough to counteract any form of pressure put on the screen from either side. Three weeks after purchase the screen cracked. No pressure was applied to the screen. This was termed customer damage so not covered by warranty, costing over £100 to repair at local IT shop.
Repair man said screen is so thin it can break by holding the lid.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, stylish, fast normally, some of the build quality good, screen quality excellent, Stays very cool and the air intake in a very good place. Blue ray very good.
Bad points:
Arrived with the computers body not together properly, slow at startup, when awakening many programs crash, build quality poor especially on the backing of the screen. The screen is bowed and feels very flimsy. For the price I paid there should be non of these issues.
