Good points:
Quick to start, nice key board comfotable to use. Good screen resolution.
Bad points:
The only poor point is the battery life, only 2 hours capacity when fully charged. It does mean always have to have the charger nearby.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Stylish, smooth design. Bright screen and pleasing keyboard. Using Intel 2 Dual Core running at 2.2gh. This has coped with everything so far, including editing AVCHD format media. Battery life has been up to three hours, and for me that's good, as I use the screen at it's full power when using battery power.
Bad points:
Felt the CD Rom drive could have been a bit more robust. Just think it's a bit fragile feeling, compared to the last laptop I had. Don't get me wrong, it works fine, and it's just my opinion.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice beautiful and tectile design...especially the touch pad with that non-smooth feel is good.
Bad points:
the screen a bit too reflective and not as bright or fibrant as my 6 year pld viao. Also this is my first widescreen laptop; to be frank I would have prefered a taller screen than a wider screen
