John, Edinburgh Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Size and weight are excellent
Bad points:
Battery life is appaling and even worse when I activated the battery protection protocol. If Mac can make their computers run 10 hours so should you.
I notice ZERO effect of using the stamina button.
Windows 7 is an improvement on Vista but after several updates from Microsoft the machine takes forever to start and shut down

Cliff, Oundle Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very light, very fast.
Bad points:
The wireless management is a puzzle and it sometimes stops communicating for no reason and needs a reboot. Also the power management has caused the screen to black out when switching from charging to just battery.
