Very pleased with my new Lafité laptop. It represents a useful compromise between size and portability - light enough to carry around but a large enough screen and keyboard to make using it everyday easy and pleasant. The fact that it also has several USB ports plus HDMI and DSD/MMC etc. is impressive for the size/weight. Some others have commented on the quality of the 'aluminium' casing but I can't say that its something particularly noticeable in comparison with similar laptops from the high street. The sound quality and volume could be better (speakers only underneath the base) but this could be remedied by external speakers or headphones.
