Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, and more than equal to my needs. I've now been using this m2 8 for about a week and it is just what I needed. A bit slow to start up but very rapid and responsive when in use with the bonus of good battery life. Goodness knows what the M3 will be like when it is launched latter this year.
