Phil, London Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, easy to set up.
Bad points:
Mouse pad shows signs of wear easily, ie mouse pad keys loose paint covering so makes the machine look a bit untidy. Battery life is not the best available.

Confirmed purchaser Software Engineer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good design (especially the keybord) and nice performance. Plays older games (a few years) really well and it will cope with some of the more modern games if you don't mind low settings and resolution. Great screen colours look great.
Bad points:
Battery life could be better but performance can be changed very easily to conserve power. Comes pre-installed with loads of Sony stuff. Turn off most of it and keep the few useful ones and machine works fine. Very slow to boot otherwise. I wouldn't let that put someone off though spend an hour tinkering with it and you will have a good machine.

Jane, Poole

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lap top that is well designed and robust with a clear,sharp defined screen.
Bad points:
Software preloaded assumes use in a specified way. Not easy to get rid of if not needed. Battery life is not wonderful, but that tends to be the case with most lap top units.
