Advantages: Lightweight, relatively cheap at basic level and fast enough for your everyday needs
Disadvantages: Mouse pad is overly sensitive, and the screen isn't the best
I bought this a month ago and thought I'd wait a little a bit before I wrote a review. Essentially this does exactly what it says on the tin and that's the best thing about it!
Starting with the design is simple but classic, particularly if you just go with the black casing. It's light weight and comfortable in the lap. The layout of the keyboard is excellent also and I love the fact that it has the number pad on the side - something which has usually been the preserve of Desktop keyboards.
Coming in at around £600 (with the help of QuidCo!) I chose the standard base including 500gb hard drive which is more than enough. Considering this price also included 1yr standard cover, intel core i5, 3yr in home warranty support, and a 15 month subscription to McAfee I think I did pretty well. Many laptops out there in this price range wouldn't offer half of this, you'd be lucky to get a decent hard drive!
To be honest my biggest quibble is the mouse pad - it is super sensitive, even after fiddling with the options, and quite often i've found myself typing in a completely random place on the screen or having suddenly opened up another program. This has never happened with any of my other laptops. My mother also has the same model and a similar thing occurs on there so I know it's not an anomaly.
The screen is also a little shiny and in daylight it's not that easy to look at - however this is a minor thing really and once you adjust the settings to your personal preferences you soon become accustomed to it's shortfalls.
Anyway a very satisfactory product, and hopefully one which will serve me for a long time - I think I'll really come to love this nifty piece of hardware.
Summary: Does what it says on the tin.
