I found this review helpful, like most TR reviews.

I am curious about the Value score, given this gets an 8 even though "all told it simply offers little over its competition". Assuming its competition is other products of a similar price, to me that line suggests it offers mediocre value.

Actually in general I'm not sure I've ever really understood why the Value score would be different from the Overall score.

Very glad to hear it David! Regarding the value score, it's a good price for the specs, connectivity and premium chassis with the screen being its only real weakness. Hence if you're just looking for a relatively stylish productivity laptop it's good value, but the poor screen and other cons are reflected in the overall score - hope that helps!
