Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The P500-12F is very well specified and easy to use. Responses are quick, and graphics are crisp and clear. The 18" screen is excellent for viewing photographs, videos, etc. The Harman / Kardon speakers are excellent- top quality sound for built-in audio. I have had few operational issues with this PC, a very pleasant change from my existing computer. This is not a cheap piece of kit, but given the quality and performance provided, I consider it represents good value for money. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Bad points:
The size and weight mean that the P500-12F is not particularly portable. This is not an issue for me, but it may be a consideration for other potential purchasers. I am not overly impressed by the shiny, black plastic finish. Only time will determine how well this wears. The keyboard ergonomics could be improved : there is a tendency to catch the sidebar buttons on the left, activating unwanted functions. Otherwise, very little to criticise.

Good points:
because this lap top is larger than my previous one, I really like the keyboard, and love the extra options, so far it has been completly reliable and should I have a problem they are always easy to contact for help.

Good points:
The design was sleek and user friendly, the processor very fast. Screen excellent and useful size.
Bad points:
After just two weeks the fan and keyboard stopped working, so unit returned to retailer. Another unit replaced the first, and fan stopped working even before setup completed. Unit returned and cost reimbursed from retailer. Would not recommend this laptop at all.

As with all "Shiny" laptops you'r forever cleaning finger prints off!,,,,. Hardisk could be faster but this is the only real floor in its design.
