Lightweight and does everything I need it to. Runs Adobe Lightroom with no problems.

Struggles a bit with Sim City but I didn't buy this as a gaming laptop.

Light weight, attractive design. Value for money.

Touch pad navigation takes a bit of getting used to. But now I prefer this to using a mouse.

I like the overall design of this laptop. It has a large enough screen that you can watch movies on, yet it small and compact enough to be able to use it for work and travel with it. The Beatsaudio is a nice added extra. The sound quality is good. Easy...

The mouse is quite sensitive and you can be moving the mouse to the left, and it will open the windows menu down the right hand side of the screen. I think this is more a user issue though, and as I get used to the laptop this should stop happening. So...

Seems like a great computer for the price. Much faster than my old laptop.

Hate the new windows, so hard to work with and get used to. Keeps doing things unrequested.

Lovely lightweight laptop with all the power and performance I need. I am not a keen game player but the speed and graphics are perfect for me.

None really, just wish I had bothered to get a laptop bag at the same time!
