Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Big screen, good sound and a Blue Ray burner.
Bad points:
Product was faulty out of the box, for a laptop of this expense this was totally unacceptable. I contacted the support desk who reproduced the fault and attempts were made to fix the problem but this did not work. I am an IT consultant with 20 years experience and there was no way a brand new machine would have such sluggish performance, random crashes and a failure to come out of sleep mode correctly right out of the box if there was not either a fault with the RAM memory or the hardware had not been correctly mated to the drivers and Windows 7 OS.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
My last laptop was made by the same company and found to be very reliable and nothing ever went wrong with it. I had it for 8 years. So I wanted to stay with a tried and tested brand. I wanted to buy the latest technology and this machine certainly has that. I have not tested the battery life, so am unable to rate this aspect. I have found very easy to use and set up. Has great graphics and loads very quickly. Only laptop I found with blue ray technology
Bad points:
This is a laptop that you need to have on a desk or table due to size and weight. Too heavy to sit on your lap. I am mainly using a wireless connection, I have notice the performance does fluctuate at times, however this could be a internet provider issue. I did find it difficult to find a company that stocked the machine. I had to buy off the internet direct from the company. The only company who had it in store, had priced higher than the recommended retail price.
