Good points:
For me the 13 inch screen is the ideal - it allows the full size keyboard. You can see documents and web pages just fine. This mid-range model is between budget and pro and has enough power in terms of RAM, clock speed and hard drive size to do what I want - which is run dictation software. It looks stylish and businesslike with a few bling accents to make you feel you have a quality product. The design is excellent wiith good key layout and the usual laptop 'soft' keys to control the system such as wifi on/off. The hard button to turn the trackpad on and off is a great idea. It's quiet and battery life is excellent so it's a good companion.
Bad points:
For me, the trackpad buttons are a little too hard to click, but I mainly use a BT mouse anyway. The position of the headphone and mic sockets at the back is a little bit crazy - the potential to snag on the optical tray when it ejects is high.
I compromised my choice of keyboard style as I hate the chiclit 'scrabble board' keys. But they're not too bad once you get used to em. Every laptop on the planet seems to have them now.
Also a tiny irritation for me is that there is no definite 'lock' when the lid is down - the friction in the hinge keeps it closed - so you can't open it one handed - you have to hold the base while opening the lid - but the lid/screen is so slim there's nothing to get hold of.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very light weight. Superb keyboard (well laid out, easy to use, with nicely spaced and responsive keys). Bright and sharp display. Has dealt with large-format photos and movie making with ease. Internet connection is easily set up, and doesn't lose wifi.
Bad points:
Speakers are a bit tinny! If you used the laptop to watch movies, you'd be disappointed with the sound.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its light weight and size make it very easy to carry around, and the long battery life means there's no need to be constantly close to a power point.
Bad points:
The touch pad and buttons are too sensitive, (I solved this by using a wireless mouse), and the keyboard layout isn't as easy to use as my previous laptop.
