Good points:
All around very good, one of the best laptops that i've seen for a long time.
Bad points:
fan can be a little noisy if you're playing games on it, but its ok. 2-5 seconds startup time from standby but that's a lot better than 30!

Charles, Guildford Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It really is small and light the keyboard is easy on the hands and the backlit keyboard feature handy when using in dim lit spaces. It is very quick to boot and has really good connectivity with VGA HDMI and 3 USB ports one of which is a USB3 so all in all an excellent machine very very pleased with my purchase
Bad points:
The only things I found a little (and that is a very little) frustrating is the screen angle can not be bent back past a certain level, not a problem most of the time.

Richard, St Albans Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Super small, but without sacrificing full size versions of ports, such as Ethernet.
Biometric security on the -104 and up is excellent. Use the fingerprint reader not only for logging in, but also for every website that requires a password. This means that you can use very complex secure passwords without having to remember them or store them in your browser (which can be insecure).
Bad points:
Any version above the entry level i3 Satellite Z830 carries a hefty price premium.
