It could not be simpler to fit a hard drive inside it and with USB3.0 I am getting the same speeds I was getting when the hard drive was connected internally (~95MBps).

This laptop is amazing!!!
It is blazingly fast and has handled everything I have thrown at it so far. The FullHD screen is awesome and I found the sound quality suprisingly good.
Another thing that surprised me was how quiet it is. Even at full load, the fan is only just audible. It does run a bit hot though, around 50-60 C under medium to heavy load (make sure you don't completely cover the vent on the underside, or the temperature will jump above 70 and CPU throttling will kick in) and around 35-40 at idle.
Aesthetically, it looks way better that the images, another pleasant surprise.
I 100% recomend this laptop. Ten out of ten. Amazon was also excellent. It arrived one day before the estimated delivery date.
UPDATE: After about two weeks with the laptop, I can confirm that there are no touchpad issues. Battery life seems to be around 3-6 hours (on Linux).

Just like it says, A UK to Euro plug adapter. I'm rating it five stars because unlike some other adapters I've used, this one is quite easy to grab aroud the edges and pull out of the socket.

These earphones give good audio quality, although personally, I think they are a bit heavy on the bass. Also, you need to keep the volume down low, otherwise they can be quite painfull.
