Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Good performance and graphics, once Linux is installed.
Bad points:
Default installation is completely dangerous - one button click erases entire main partition. Reinstallation major headache as backup discs not supplied, and much software unavailable without rescue discs. Without doubt the most flawed design of software/hardware combo I have ever come across.
