Clare, Edinburgh Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sized screen, reasonable weight for carrying around.
Bad points:
Battery low warning tone is a real pain. It begins warning when battery is 10% and sounds off several times a minute. Extremely irritating and, in my view, utterly unnecessary.

John, Craigavon General home user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
The machine has no features that would raise it above any competitors offerings.
It is compact and light.
Bad points:
It is forever displaying messages such as 'are you sure you want to take this action' When you make a decision it asks the same thing again and on occasions it repeats the question for the third time.
Built in speakers are woeful. Miserly number of usb ports and battery life is nothing to write home about
