How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Pocket-Lint says:

Once you get past the initial anxiety of the keyboard layout, it is quite comfortable to type on despite the slightly numb feedback. It doesn’t take long to get used to ... and the new Windows 7 dedicated buttons are useful but by no means a life and death scenario.
