Rich, Abergavenny Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very nice machine. Good keyboard for typing (I'm a touch-typing coder, so this is very important to me), the function keys do what they should, without having to hold down an additional key, it's very, very light and almost silent. After updating Windows, which connected to wireless and office network without a hitch, first proper step was to install the LAMP stack, the L in this case being Mint 13 Cinnamon, which has worked straight out of the box (okay, a bit of buggering around in GParted, because the Windows installation has an unfortunate partition layout), including all hardware functionality (suspend/resume on lid shut/open, Win key works and so on). Overall it took me all of an afternoon to install a second OS and get both of them playing nicely with all my other machines - and this will be my main work machine from this point on. Ten days later and I'm still very enthusiastic about this computer, as you can tell.

great weight and still feels solid. No problems with set up which was very easy

slow on start up - too many Toshiba and other programs that are not really needed. Fine once removed.
