    Good value package if you want a capable machine at a reasonable price and don't mind compromising on internal HDD space.

    First of all, ratio of performance to price is best I seen on market. And I did quite a lot of research when trying to pick computer.

    Display is really good. Reflections are minimal and its not a problem to use it outsides.

    People claim that it has a short battery life. Though, it last at least 4 hours - at least for me its long.

    I can play Civilization V on high details without a problem!
    Quality of enclosure is poor in some places - specially at boundary between two parts. Also, the black frame around display is poor. Its not made precisly, and in some places it sticks out.
    However its minor failure.

    Small, good looking and very fast laptop with everything I need, no annoying bloatware pre-loaded (the month's free trail of McAfee LiveSafe is very useful until you sort out your own anti-virus software of choice.
    I needed to reset the internally held warranty information to ensure it correctly showed my purchase date, not hard to get sorted (once you have worked out which are the model and serial numbers on the bottom!) but some people may not know about it as the issue is not highlighted.

    Small & lightweight
    Very quiet, barely ever hear the fan
    Backlit keyboard is a bonus and you can set it to two different levels of brightness or switch it off completely.
    Keyboard very comfy to type on
    Screen is good
    Looks pretty in red
    Speakers surprisingly good & loud
    The edges on the lid feel a little rough
    Battery life is reasonable but nowhere near Macbook Air standards
    Battery charge light doesn't go off when its fully charged so its not easy at a glance to see whether its charged without loading up the OS.

    Moreton-In-Marsh GB Often on the move
    It looks elegant and beautiful. It's light and handy, loved the illuminated keyboard.
    Expecting lightning speed, I was disappointed when that wasn't the case. What threw me off the most was that any right click command, such as if you want to look at 'Properties', the window that pops up is blurry. It actually looks like a snap shot and at first I thought I couldn't click anything inside the window. I thought that to be unacceptable for the cost of it, as well as the slower than expected performance.
