Liz, London General home user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Nice design.
Bad points:
A relentless high-pitched whine from the CPU, which only goes away if you keep it plugged in, which in turn, apart from being a hassle, means the battery runs down really quickly. Since buying the laptop I've googled around and found out that this is a known problem with this model and there were lots of other people being driven mad by it too.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good looking and mouse pad well over to the left which makes it better for left handers like me to use. The i5 processor makes it noticeably more responsive.
Bad points:
Mouse pad is heavy to use and even intermittent.The quick Web access feature does not work when using a mobile Broadband dongle
