Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The finish on this laptop is great, unlike many laptops that arebeing released at the moment it is not glossy and hasn't gathered any fingerprints. This machine never gets too hot, even when running in high performance mode and running processor intensive tasks it rarely gets too hot to have on my lap. The video quality on the webcam is quite good but still shots leave a little to be desired..

Windows 7 Professional is nice to use and the xp mode which I installed is a great feature! I have had no performance issues with this laptop.

I use this laptop mainly for producing music with reason and ableton live. When running DPC latency checker it scored an absolute maximum of 186 ┬Ás and I've had no problems whatsoever performing live with it.
Bad points:
When the laptop is closed and I carry it around I can hear a slight clicking noise sometimes, this turned out to be the touchpad buttons which were being pressed by the bezel above the screen, a mild annoyance really.. The speakers are loud but were a bit tinny when I first listened to them but I normally use speakers so this isn't an issue.

This machine came with a fair bit of pre-installed software on it which I had to remove.
