Good points:
The machine is great looking - very sleak and sexy.. although the high black gloss is terrible for finger prints. Performance is good with great graphics, although you pay for that with battery life. Hard drive could be a bit quicker, but hey for a mid price laptop this is pretty good.

Good points:
fast and userish friendly laptop with lots of memory and built in security i think this is a semi top end laptop that could be improved on especially if you are to believe the advertising thats made me buy it
Bad points:
the metal rim that runs round the edge isnt very good and the speakers crackle when the volume is turned up, the battery life is total pants DO NOT USE THIS MACHINE WITHOUT THE POWER CABLE i have been caught out a few times with the battery also the screen dims when on battery. i brought this believing the advertising hype and think it was over hyped and definitely isnt as good as the company say it is
