Andy, London Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, easy to arrange delivery. The product itself is a huge improvement over the old laptop I was using before - both in terms of processor speed and capability. Money well spent.
Bad points:
Maybe due to the large screen size the battery life can be a little short. Most of my use is in the home though - it's a bit big for carrying around unless you need to - so this hasn't been a big problem.

Francisca, London Sci Fi Geek femal

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic laptop. Never been keen but needed one to use in my room. This has been very reliable and easy to use. So many features too still trying to use them all. Playing movies is much better on this than my normal tv. Game playing is excellent boyfriend uses it for Championship Manager (8 hours a time) practically fight over it. Email is great with great features and easy to use my mobile phone to sync with the laptop. Screen is large to good for viewing. It has everything you could want top laptop to have. I was a bit dubios paying so much for one but would recommend paying the extra if you like computers.
Bad points:
Some features are hard to get to grip with, The screen resolution is way too bright. Battery life is pretty bad so has to be plugged in most of the time I use it. It is heavy so not recommended for people who are going to be carrying it for long periods. Would be nice if it was preloaded with extras like different games or a movie.
