After testing out the E305 Engadget scored it 7/10, they were happy with its operating temperature, stylish aluminium design, USB 3.0 connectivity, Blu-ray playback, Intel Wireless Display 2.0 technology and powerful Intel Sandy Bridge processor, however a few imperfections spoiled things.

There were two main problems with this model, firstly the touchpad was said to be jumpy and imprecise, as Engadget point out a driver update may sort this, but none-the-less it is a frustrating imperfection. Secondly the keyboard is said to have a cheap plasticy finish, that said Engadget said it was comfortable to use and well-spaced, but lacked the quality which you would expect from a $900 laptop.
