Most helpful reviews

Penny, East Yorks Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light, compact, easy to use. like the dual mouse and well laid out keyboard.
Bad points:
Touch mouse often "clicks" when I'm typing. Not sure if I need to adjust my hand position. Can be turned off though.

Facial recognition seems a bit of a gimmic. Never recognises me even after peering closer and moving side to side! Worked quickly for hubby last time he borrowed it though...

Richard, Southampton, UK Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Processing power, graphics and connectivity can not be touched for this form factor and price. Docking station is very useful.
Bad points:
audio is very poor, small speakers which distort and very low volumes. This is no huge issue as external speakers are easily attached.
