Nicely packaged within box. Comes installed with Windows 8 which is difficult to use and was surprising sluggish for a high end laptop. You have to have a £15 telephone call with Microsoft to download the ‘free’ update to Windows 8.1.

Windows 8.1 combined with an SSD update (very highly recommended) makes the computer usable and provides a good speed boost. Windows 8.2 (or Windows 8.1 Spring Update 2014) provides boot up times of 7 seconds.

Stanley 1-92-906 Jumbo Toolbox 19 Inch with Tray by Stanley

Blew up in less than a month. Fire hazard. No way this item has passed European safety accreditations. No idea what the CE marking is referring to; it certainly wasn't electrical safety, maybe they put plug connections in correct place. The explosion caused the 'lid'to hit my son in the face; could have been his eye. The blowing up also damaged the Apple USB to Lightening connector which will cost £15 to replace. Save yourself time, hassle and cost reduction in the long run; buy a genuine product.
