Good points:
Its sexy, its not too heavy for carrying to uni everyday, it has very clever little features which work perfectly, its good quality and just well thought out and well made.
Bad points:
I had expected the battery life to be more than it is. It does around 3 hours, im not sure if thats normal or not, but I thought it would be more

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Looks fantastic
Bad points:
Loaded with ridiculous amounts of software that slows the machine down and means it constantly uses over 60% of the RAM. If buying, the first thing to do is remove all the rubbish.

Nice design, more than enough power for a home user. I'm very happy with the product fro the price paid.
Bad points:
Quite a lot of bloatware, but I suppose thats the same on most laptops! If removed will increase performance
