      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good reliable laptop

      This review is based on the computer being used for work purposes.

      I find the laptop to be really good fo rmy work, Im in banking so involves a lot of spreadsheets, word documents and powerpoint presentations.

      The screen size is sufficient for work use but possiblt not as a 'home' laptop, it is quite compact and you often find yourself squinting to have to see things.

      Battery life- on the whole good, much better than my (Acer) personal laptop lasting a good 4 hours without needing to be re-charged.

      For wireless connectivity it is good, really easy to set up and I have had no problems in being connected, even on trains/public areas.

      I have not used the 'media' function too much so cannot comment, my colleagues who have say it is good, easy and decent quality.

      I have never had any issues with the laptop freezing or crashing losing me any unsaved work - again unlike my personal laptop.

      Accessory wise there are plenty available and price seems good also compared to some of the other bigger brand alternatives.

      All in all for its purpose this is a really good piece of kit, im not sure i would recommend it for personal use but possibly for a student who would be doing similar things
