Good points:
Quite Powerfull if the HDD is changed to a SSD Drive
Bad points:
To Heavy, Flimsey monitor design as you have got to be carefull not to damage, not able to carry it around due to the size and weight, i guess that is what you pay for a desktop alternative.

Anne , Croydon, Surrey General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its sturdy, (not thin plastic which bends under your fingers, like some other makes), powerful, strong design, lovely to look at, works like a dream, brilliant, amazing sound, Apart from using it for internet gaming (Very fast) and entertainment. I also use it for accounts. It really is brilliant. The hard drive is large enough for as many photos as you can have. Also the speed in which it executes a command is excellent.
Bad points:
The keyboard is ok except for the left hand side. If your hand breezes across the left it brings up other programs.
The only fault it has, (in my opinion) is the screen brightness. Yes, I do adjust it, but it is not as clear and bright as my
other laptop (L550). If I adjust screen brightness to the max, the fan goes on and it seems to over heat.
If there was any way to enhance the brightness I would willingly pay to make adjustments. But overall, the picture quality is excellent. Its just that I would have loved a brighter display.

Mitul, London Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value for money. It has great features for a very competitive price. Highlights include a nice keyboard with backlight, perfect size screen for multitasking with multiple windows at the same time. You can plug in HDMI devices easily or use the traditional VGA port to expand the screen space. Nice design all black with red highlights. The performance of the laptop is also great. The track pad is really nice and is multi touch. It is also better than a lot of other track pads I have used in the past. Overall WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
Bad points:
Its heavy, but you expect that as a gaming laptop / desktop replacement. The same goes for a less than ideal battery life. The power adapter is also large and heavy. I would have prefered a SSD harddrive as the primary drive instead of the 5400rpm 500GB harddrive. The hdd lets the performance down. For the specification of the machine I would have also expected Windows 7 Ultimate as standard rather than home permium.

various glitches in software irritating, especially graphics problems. Search facility very annoying, not versatile enough. Maximum sound volume not loud enough. Lid /screen very hard to open. Shiny finish shows every mark. Not enough USB ports. Metallic red trim garish. Very heavy.
