Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light, good battery life, nice screen, good keyboard (i'm very fussy about this). Fingerprint scanner more handy than I thought it would be.

In summary, I was previously a ThinkPad user for the previous 6 years, and this is the first laptop that i've had since that might make me consider changing my preferences. If money was no object, i'd choose a ThinkPad, but this is a very good alternative.
Bad points:
Strange location of USB ports. Colour coding on mic and headphone sockets would help figure out where to plug in headset. Minor points really
