Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am very pleased with this laptop after I had it set up, great to have a computer with speed at last. Suits my needs as I do not use for professional work but still recommend as a good all rounder, also I like the keys and very easy to operate.

Dean, Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The i3-2370M CPU @ 2.4Ghz just wont stop for anything, threw lots of multi-tasking at it and rarely the fan will kick in.

Design is nice a bit plastic but very happy over-all. Screen is nice and bright with good viewing angle.

No OS was a plus as it didn't come full of bloatware.

Intel HD3000 integrated grfx chip is ok, while definitely not a gaming laptop it manages to get 35fps on World of warcraft: Cata and surprisingly 50-60fps playing EVE Online, however you have to play both on low settings.

HD video play back is easy on this machine with no hick ups

Over all for what I wanted (to be mobile) this exceeded my expectation.

Bad points:
Battery life is not good approx 1% every 2mins probably due to specs etc but don't expect to go far without a charger!

Had a corrupt bios when received, but ringing Zoostorm they pointed me to the hidden section of their site to download it from.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Price - no operating system but that's not a problem. Setup is easy and straightforward and all the device drivers are on a CD. Choose the OS you want and none of the usual bloatware you get with laptops from OEM suppliers

Design - sleek ang glossy, just keep a microfibre cloth in the bag and buff it up now and again to keep the shine! Keyboard well laid out with island keys that are comfortable to use

Size - obviously, screen size dictates overall width, but the machine is thin for its width

Weight - pretty light for its size and not a chore to cart around

Performance - for the price the performance is amazing. Massive hard drive, plenty of fast RAM and the hyperthreaded cores handle numeric processing and video admirably. Not really a gamer, so I can't comment on gaming capabilities, but it handles high definitition YouTube videos without even the faintest hint of a stutter.
Bad points:
Glossy screen - great for movies and photos but awkward to type on due to glare

Luke, General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
1. Good Specifications
2. Value for money
This laptop is really good value for money. Although this laptop comes without an operating system it didn't matter for me personally, because I already purchased Windows 7 some time ago. Overall the laptop is actually really nicely designed, comes with a CD that has all the drivers. The screen is really lovely, because of the HD LED display.
Bad points:
Its a bit heavy (but then again it is after all a 15.6" laptop)
No Operating System, but again it wasn't an issue for me, but it might be for other people.
