Good points:
I've had IBM and Dell laptops in the past, this one leaves them in the dust. Sleek and (now) chock full of programs, it still works like a dream. Highly recommend this little workhorse of a laptop. Definitely worth every penny!
Bad points:
6 months in and I have not one complaint!

David, Newcastle upon Tyne

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Generally very happy with my purchase. I mainly use it for work related tasks (word processing, spreadsheets) and am not trying to play games, edit movies etc. I find the screen nice and bright and clear. Reliability has so far been fine.
Bad points:
It recently seems to have developed a mind of its own when I connect it to my printer. I only have to hover my finger above the mousepad and things happen. Away from the printer its fine.
