Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've named it "Music Behemoth" Not yet gig tested but so far has impressed me greatly. Still can't get out of the habit of finding something else to do when I restart it, my previous laptop took an age, this thing, blink and it's done! Best laptop I've ever owned, but aren't they all when they're new? Best spec for the price and totally delivers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast computer copes very well with demands of music software Very fast boot up. The spec includes 16Gig RAM and Sonar works perfectly i.e. no drop outs however big the project (so far) Only quibble is the noisy fan which seems to come on even under modest processor load
