John , Appleby in Westmorland

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
good product and seeming good computing performance - I will tell better on battery life etc., when I have taken it on long travels which is what I bought it for. I wanted a CD drive so no to notebooks.
Bad points:
I read the weight in the spec, but it is still a bit heavier than I expected.

Roman, London Professional Buyer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a factory refurbished model & came umblemished As New. Compared with the standard 15" screen, the 13.5" & lightness made it a good alternative to the ultra lightweight products one now can buy. The great thing was the cost was reasonable and the spec good, given the web cam feature, 2 Gb of Ram, and reasonable 160Gb HDD. The Duel core 1.6 Ghz processor is big enough to handle most applications.
Bad points:
It lacked a printed manual.
The Web page was cumbersome to use, and had to come out of the site several times before eventually being able to place the order.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very sleek designing, full size keyboard on 13.3" screen, built in webcam is good. Easy to use.
Bad points:
Tends to overheat after a few hours use and may sometimes shut itself down as a result. Need to ensure its well ventilated. Very loud fan.
