Francis, Dublin Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great screen, easy to type and looks very stylish. Performance is good. It offers a good mix between a media and office machine.
Bad points:
Battery life is terrible, however with it's size and weight it is not a laptop that you would expect to carry around very often. Blue ray application software that comes with the laptop is very poor.
