Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The Laptop isn't too small, its light, and I am in love with its vibrant colour. It runs efficiently, its got a lot more power than I had expected. Its a good laptop.
Bad points:
The Battery life could be better. a Mere 2.5 hours. I expected a little more, but then again, I don't really have my laptop unplugged, so this isn't so much an issue for me, but might be for others.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Chic design, wonderful keyboard, nice screen display
Bad points:
poor audio, basically you cannot amplify any music (so that you are not the only one who are sitting close enough to enjoy it) because it will ruin it. something must be wrong with its hardware, for its screen turns black and then the machine shuts down automatically if I leave it there doing nothing for 2-3 minutes. Sometimes it shuts down in front of me when I am reading some documents!

Poor build quality. I bought two of these - the power connector broke on one after approx 6 months and the hard drive died on the other after just under 2 years. Don't waste your time - get a Mac

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
- A very bold and beautiful design; I am always getting compliments about how good the laptop looks. It's actually a lot more aesthetically pleasing in real life that it is in the photos.
- Runs Ubuntu Natty 11.04 with no issues at all.
- Works really well, no problems running high-intensity programs simultaneously.
- Keyboard feels good to use.
- Touchpad is very sensitive.
Bad points:
- Speakers can be a little quiet; to use it to watch movies or shows me and my husband need to connect it up to external speakers.
- Webcam isn't brilliant.
