They are not bad, however our employer likes to ruin laptops with rubbish software. I dropped mine onto concrete after it decided to exit the van after me. It just added some grazes to the lid Ours get used in all weather and get bashed about as they are carried from van to worksite to office. I also remember using it (albeit rather carefully) to knock a screwdriver through plasterboard after bruising my hand
Ours all got swapped out recently so they are probably reconditioned models from a large telecoms company
They are nice in that there are no real cooling issues or fan noise, pretty silent, and although the touchscreen is no where near the standards of a smartphone, it is nice to use. I suspect it hasn't got the performance, but would be interesting to see if Windows 8 is even compatible with it?! For those that hadn't noticed, the screen spins 180 degrees and then closes and the screen flips, onscreen keyboard and stylus etc to make a basic tablet.
