Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's a wonderful little machine. Very powerful, it maybe small in size but it packs a punch! The keys are user friendly , I love the fact that the speakers are on the top and not on the side, much better for when it's on my lap. I love the eco-power system and the face recognition, so James Bond!! It's sexy in colour and very classy all at the same time. Bluetooth is wonderful.
Bad points:
I'm not keen on the gloss of the frame inside it shows all the dust.

Only two USB which is a bit of issue.

The power cord socket isn't a snug fit. I have to push the cable in every now and again because it's worked it's way loose

Good points:
Good size, light weight.
Bad points:
The adapter tends to come out quite a bit, should have considered a different design so the adapter does not accidentally come out.

Mark, Diss General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a great looking machine - compact, with a solid feel and packed full of features. At a little over two KG, it is also very portable and could easily be mistaken as a netbook. The built in face recognition is a bit touch and go, but fun to play with. Display is sharp and clear. Any niggles I have are minor and would not stop me buying it again...
Bad points:
The bright 'boy racer' indicator lights can be a little irritating, especially when watching DVDs as they will reflect on the bottom of the screen. The battery life is also disappointing. Even when running in ECO mode I would have expected that they would last out playing a DVD on a full charge. Using it with Skype also highlighted limitations with the microphone which were overcome with a plug in.
