Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This laptop has a wonderful design and cosmetics.
LED screen is bright and contrasty.
The i3 processor is very good for a general purpose laptop, and boots Windows 7 Pro (64bit) quickly.
Runs cool and very quiet.
Bad points:
Needs at least 1 one more USB port. Having only 2 ports seems a bare minimum these days.
Battery life could be longer, however this is more of a battery technology issue than a specific laptop problem.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
good screen, webcam, mouse and lots of versatile connections
Bad points:
First impressions seems remarkably slow - as if I have gone back 10 years when I start up. I think this is due to the manufacturer's software which I am not really interested in. Infuriating set up to remove free mcaffee involving downloading software removal tools while totally unprotected. Also keyboard feels squishy - a little cheap. Generally dissapointing compared with previous laptop which seemed to run faster despite having a much lower spec and 2 years worth of junk in it. Perhaps I haven't tried it out on anything particularly telling yet - too early to judge but nothing special.
