Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Quite a good battery life, performance is really good. In short, if you are looking for a powerful laptop but worried about cost, this is the laptop for you.
Bad points:
Design could have been better. Keys should be lit in order to use the laptop in total darkness. The laptop cannot close firmly.
