"Solid, powerful, thoughtfully constructed."4.5 starson by Kochegarova
Pros: Powerful, well built, good screen size and resolution, very comfortable for prolonged use, great value for money given the high specification. Good trackpad (once calibrated)
Cons: No eSATA port. Default settings on trackpad are a real pain and trying to navigate a new operating system in windows 8 with it to find the settings menu to change it very frustrating. Naff speakers, quantity not quality.
Summary: A few gripes, novelty volume touch pad very unresponsive and speakers loud but narrow frequency band, however in reality this is a folding desktop computer so buy some decent external speakers or headphones and just use the reliable function keys for volume control. No eSATA connection? disappointing. Now the good stuff - Very powerful, very comfortable, very nice screen size and resolution, threw several 1080p video editing tasks at it and simultaneously threw 5.1 a sound edit at it, the damned thing didn't even blink it just threw the finished product in my lap, no flicker, no judder, no stalling, no crashes and let me surf the web at the same time, I REALLY like this machine. Hard to find better or even close at this price.
