Phil, Oxford Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light as a feather. The power cable is heavier than the laptop. Fires up fast.
Bad points:
The built in speaker is terrible. Maybe it's just mine, but I adjusted it every way I could and it didn't get better. For a laptop of this price I didn't expect that kind of weakness. If you want a flash looking light laptop this one isn't really for some reason - looks and feels 'plasticky'. The alloy used in the casing, I guess. Hard to keep it looking clean and new and not 'scuffed' or lightly scratched. Probably my fault for not using a carry case and just dropping it into my hand luggage. I misread 'backlit' or something about 'backlight' in the description to assume the keyboard was. It isn't. Keys a bit close together. I should have guessed they would be as it's so small.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Nice design, many good points such as the screen and the solid state drive.
Bad points:
I find the mouse buttons unusable because they are so hard to press. I only ever use an external mouse now, although that is inconvenient itself.
