Harry , ESSEX Training & Quality Executive

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Very good laptop, good design, and works well under pressure, i have at least 4/5 prgrams running together, the graphics card is very good.
Bad points:
Very heavy, the screen size makes it too large and it doesnt fit in any case i get, the laptop is way over weight. The black keypad makes it hard to use in low light.
