Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great laptop which is extremely quick and has great processing power and works straight from the box, the screen and display is really nice and great for gaming and movies/tv shows, windows 8 is great (once you get your head around it) overall I would recommend this laptop for anyone and for any use
Bad points:
The battery life is quite poor I find I get about 3 hours of usage and then I have to recharge, but that isn't a major issue as I mainly use this at a desk

Angela, Wimborne Business user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
I like that laptop. Overall it starts up quickly and battery life with prolonged use is around 3 - 4 hrs.

Bad points:
The key board could be a little more "positive/firmer" (the keys push into the support layer)

The big let down is not so much the laptop but Windows 8. For me the main use of a laptop is for business, whereas the main use of Windows 8 appears to be for socialising shopping and gaming! It is a backwards step to create a faster laptop only to slow it down with having to dodge the apps on Windows 8!

Nathan, Clevedon Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent price-performance ratio, I'm still impressed by how well it can run games like Arkham City on medium.

Excellent quality screen.

Excellent battery life for a laptop of this size.

Very quiet, even when running at load.
Bad points:
No scroll function on touchpad.

Comes with Windows 8 pre-loaded and you have to reformat the entire drive to install Win7, as well as changing the bios settings just to boot from disc.
