Ian, Malvern General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast, with very good graphics, good sound quality, stacks of memory and an excellent keyboard.
Bad points:
Quite large and heavy - but I bought it primarily to use instead of a desktop - plugged into a docking station and external monitor - with only occasional use away from home needed. The only (minor) problem for this setup is that all the sockets are down the sides, so it's not as neat on the desktop as my acer which has these connections at the back.

Chris, Isle of Bute General home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Very good speakers (Harman/Kardon), screen quality also good
Bad points:
Windows 7 doesn't seem to be very stable on this Laptop, blue screen and 'this computer has recovered from a serious error' is all too common. This also my replacement Toshiba Laptop after the first just died on us after a couple of days. I cannot recommend this laptop.
