Susan, Reigate General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Wonderful Display Panel which folds down easily and securely without needing to be locked in place. Very quiet in use.
Excellent Keyboard.
Bad points:
The USB Ports are poorly located on the Front section of the right side (unless you are Left Handed of course). The connected Peripherals tend to obstruct the work space. I was compelled to purchase a Blue tooth Mouse in order to remedy the problem. The Orange Num Lock indicator is small and easily missed in day light.

James, Derby General home user

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
The screen is clear
Bad points:
Battery life is diabolically short (drains overnight): sound is poor: slower than my previous 3 years old laptop when opening applications: I'm sick of being asked to register it, despite having done so on the day I bought it: intrusive google software installed as a factory included part of the product: intrusive and inadequate mcafee anti virus software: poor product support.
