Uros, Belgrade Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Well designed, but can be improved, especially area where screen is attached to main deck.
Bad points:
Can be ligher, chiklet keyboard could be better (I had to by new one) because keys are breaking after 6 months of professional usage, battey could last longer, and it might be equipped with better graphics card.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Reasonably fast, nice to use.
Bad points:
Poor build quality, especially for the price. Battery rattles, keyboard squeaks (already replaced). Does not give the feeling of solidity a Mac or Toshibe does. Customer contact centre staff need training.

Ahmed, Sheffield Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I have been using this laptop for the last three months. I am so happy with it. the performance is more than enough for the type of work I do. The design, weight and size are fantastic and make it perfect choice for business and entertainment.
Battery life is very good too and it some times last for up to 4 hours. i would strongley recommend it to any one who is looking for an reliable machine.
Excellent value for money. I got a lot of a laptop for the money I paid.
Bad points:
Edges are sharp and stiff. could do with smoother edges.
Biometeric fingerprint scanner freezes sometimes.
A lot of unneeded software preinstalled slows the start up.
