kit, 'diff General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
it hasent overheated so far, i dont use for the compuer for anything imparticular, but i do a number of things simultaneously (about 20 web browsers, microsoft office, photo manipulation programs, playing DVDs), this computer deals with it very well, doesnt slow down but it serves well for general purpose. The seperate number pad is very usefull,
Bad points:
its quite heavy, not something you want to use on a train, the mouse buttons click quite loudly, and the SD card slot doesnt click in so if you use an adapter you have to carry it around seperately (i left the adapter in on a trip and it ended up pushing in the SD slot... off for repairs at the moment), only has two USB ports so an extension is adviseable.

John, Malmesbury Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great to have a built-in numeric keypad (I do alot of number crunching) and something more than the usual cheap-n-cheeful keyboard. Not overly heavy (unlike some Sony Vaio's I have used). Best display I have come across. Good looking design, and right weight and feel for daily use. Value wise, I haven't come across anything better (this is my 10th machine)...ignoring the fact that newer models are always better spec'd than the ones they replace.
Bad points:
I would worry a little if I was travelling with it alot (mine is mainly desk bound) especially with regard to the durability of the high gloss casework. Fan is not the quiestest I've come across. Some may find the (slightly) raised touchpad takes some getting used to. The space-bar is necessarily a little shorter than ideal.
