Dan, Wellingborough Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lovely design, very good weight for it's size, much better than the Dell Lattitude it replaced.
Wasn't sure about keyboard at first but have found it to be very usable.
Touchpad works well and great finish.
Bad points:
You cannot set the desktop size to anything larger than 1280 x 800 and I prefer larger.
The 64bit operating system does not support MS Groove (not strictly an issue with this laptop but a shock and am seeing if I can downgrade to W7 32 bit which apparently works).
Great that it has DVD drive but the tray is really flimsy, good chance of future damage especially if it slips on your lap while open.
Switching it on and off using the power button seems a bit random.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent design and size, and does what it should. Keyboard is very comfortable to use and very easy to keep clean.
Bad points:
Case scratches easily, quite light construction and case for lots of use on move, CD tray in particular is flimsy. Also, does not allow screen to be a larger desktop size, limited options.
