Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The hardware (screen, keyboard, speakers, docking station) is very good and a pleasure to use.
Bad points:
The software package is disappointing - the MS licence is only for 3 months and the TV tuner/EPG software is on monthly subscription....I have friends with recent/earlier Sony PCs with the TV software "bundled" without the monthly charge.
