I only see two reviews as for the second one the verdict was

"this is the fastest notebook we have see and by quite some margin, the ajp should handle anything you nthrow at it with ease, and with it's 64bit processor it's futureproffed as well. All in all, the 8355 is a worthy gold award winner.

hope this helps.

ignore my typo's please :-)

  Viv-208691 17:37 06 Oct 2004

thanks jonny but i meant the 'recommende' laptops, the ones that came 2nd (and maybe third) place behind the gold award laptops

I'm gonna withdraw at this point as i think i was looking at the wrong issue, suggest you buy another mag, before i get into trouble for you buying the wrong one :-)
