Score 9.0/10
Good points:
the design, looks, performance and sound quality are all top notch.
Bad points:
The face recognition is a waste of time and I dont know why anyone would ever use it as it basically takes at lest 25-30 seconds to acknowledge your face, when in about 2-4 seconds you can type your password to enter Windows. much easier and less time consuming

Confirmed purchaser Student in Liverpool

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very stylish, fast processors, can easily manage 4-5 tasks at once without slowing, great features and love it to bits!
Bad points:
None stand out... If I had to be really finicky I would say it shows up dirt and dust very easily and when using outside in the sun, the screen can be hard to see. Other than that a fantastic computer!

chris, manchester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
great design, like the size of the keyad buttons, a little larger than my previous latops, so not worried about making mis-keying characters. like the touch style mouse pad and media buttons...very sleek! was a little bothered by all the pre-loaded Toshiba software, but after some of it does come in handy. Some reviews say that it took a while for the commuter to load, but it is Vista Premium.
Bad points:
A few problems with WAN and LAN but down to anti-virus package..
