Keith, Warrington

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The laptop made it very easy for me to playback (via Blu-Ray) when playing DVDs burnt via my Panasonic VW-BN1 DVD burner- which were taken on my Panasonic HDCHS9 HD video camera.
Bad points:
I have found it slow at picking up my company's server network - when compared to my colleagues laptops.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Decently made, stylish, bright screen, no dead pixels. Great keyboard. Good connectivity, especially the HDMI output. Nicely balanced laptop in terms of performance + features against price. Generally very happy with it, and have already recommended it to another person.
Bad points:
Screen has rather poor viewing angles, especially the vertical viewing angles. There is a noticeable change in colour/contrast vertically across the screen when you are looking straight at it, let alone when you move your head up or down a small amount. It also displays blacks very poorly, which is particularly ironic since it's supposed to be an "X-black" screen. Personally, in a laptop in the £700 price range I'd expect a decent screen technology rather than a cheap shiny twisted nematic panel.

Battery life is a bit below average, in my opinion. Not a problem in my case, as it's plugged in 95% of the time.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast powerful machine, excellent display / graphics, absolutely brilliant for multi-tasking. Connectivity options are excellent and HDMI option allows you to use latest TV as display for photos, playing blu ray discs etc, or just as a very big monitor. Being able to turn off the display is good when you are just listening to radio as well. This laptop is whisper quiet, you would not know it was switched on. It is a good replacement for a home PC.
Bad points:
The weight. It is soooo heavy, not a viable option if you do a lot of travel with your laptop.
The battery life is really poor. Just using the internet for an hour or so will flatten the battery so you can't stray far from a power outlet.
