Martin, Leicester Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great performer even better since changing the HDD to SSD which has improved battery life from indifferent to acceptable.
Bad points:
Lid is too flexible making the screen fragile this has resulted in the need for a replacement screen already.

Replacement screen is eye wateringly expensive at 3-4 times the cost of a comparable screen. This is nothing short of daylight robbery.

Good points:
Smart looking chassis solid looking build.
Bad points:
Very slow to start up despite intel i7 processor.
Screen has fault whereby the colours flicker. Although to be fair this was an ex-demo and may have suffered some damage in the store where I bought it.
Too many useless freebies that I would never use.
