Ian, Bexhill

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Looks beautiful, very good performance, screen is the best you can get by far, better than a Mac, HP, Acer, Samsung, etc...As I spend most of my time looking at the screen then I wanted the best screen! HDMI works fantastically. BBC iplayer on my HD Sony LCD is great. Streams music, video, photos across my newtork without fault.
Bad points:
None that I can think of. Of course if it was half price then that would be good!!!!

Good points:
It looks nice.
Bad points:
The keyboard is trowing out this symbol "[" all the time. Impossible to type normally. Just after two weeks, computer kept on freezing at the start... really disapointed. I had Vaio before, which worker perfectly - but this one reallyhas destroyed all my expectations...
