Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value, does all I need. Used as a "portable desktop" so I can't comment on battery life.
Bad points:
Flimsy keyboard - not ideal if you intend to do a lot of typing unless you add a separate keyboard.

Fast boot up speed.

Missing some key basic software which I had to purchase. Rediculous amount of adware had to be blocked and removed. Still can't prevent some popping up.

Stuart, General home user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good basic machine with decent specs
Bad points:
Terrible flex in the keyboard, all function keys require 2 buttons to access, poor labeling on the ports, pretty much have to pick the machine up to access the dvd tray. Windows 8 is an abomination, it took literally hours of forcing updates before it would let me update to 8.1 which isn't much better. Without windows 8 this would be a fine cheap laptop.
