Andrew, Sandhurst Often on the move

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
I like the size of the machine and the fact that it should be able to do most thing a full size machine will do
Bad points:
The hard drive is too small as I have only loaded the basic windows programmes on it (no games) and the hard drive has already used 45GB of space. The ram is too low and the PC struggles to run some of the basic programmes. I would question if 2GB of ram has been installed on this machine. If there is something you can suggest helping increase the performance I would love to hear your thoughts.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very small and light. Good screen resolution. Good keyboard
Bad points:
No track pad. Poor battery life. Excrutiatingly slow boot up and deployment of programmes although that might be related to softwareie Windows. Battery tires quickly if CPU challenged at all.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Of course the design, and being able to comfortably handle the thing. A very useable keyboard and screen, though the nipple/pointer/screen resolution can be a challenge now and again. Handy little features too, though these are available elsewhere, so you need to weigh things up.

As a "laptop" it's spot-on.

I use it as a media player only, so perhaps my next comment is in line with my use......if you get the OS and drivers right it does perform well when playing back films. If you get the OS and drivers right...
Bad points:
Battery life when you want to run it tricked out media-wise.
Getting the right OS/software/driver setup for media playback. A seriously shocking experience.
