    I appreciate its lightweight etc but still, who in their right mind would buy this when you can get a better spec (but a bit heavier) for £900 less?!

    We've brought one for a member of staff who is recovering from a long illness due to its extremely small size and weight. Apart from those factors I wouldn't actively look for one.
    Dammed small and light though.

    I'd rather have a small Dell laptop, think it was an X300 we had before, ace little computer, even came in a little briefcase!
