Simon, Beds

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This is a lovely laptop - we really wanted the one with the BlueRay drive but couldn't afford it. The display is bright and clear and the processor is excellent value (Core 2 Duo P8400). We use it for HD video editing and it's a good combination with Sony Vegas Pro.
Bad points:
The USB ports are in a dreadful location - front RHS of the base unit, so they get in the way for a right handed mouse user. Not available with Win XP.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast speed. Up to date software. Stylish design. It appears to be well built and robust. I like the wi-fi facility.
Bad points:
It could possibly do with a longer battery life but I mostly use it from the mains.
