Excerpt: I can’t believe all the great reviews for this laptop, I bought one for £1400 in 2003 and have never had so many problems with anything before. Whilst the laptop was extremely powerful for its time with great hardware and range of features and built quality was terrible.
Pros: Good speed
Cons: Terrible build quality, poor customer service

Pros: Great quality laptop with plenty of processing power

Cons: Heavy weight, Graphics cards, Gets quite hot
