Promising but unreliable with poor battery life

  (Rating Hidden)

It was very satisfactory for about 6 months, then the screen failed. I sent it away under warranty for repair, but when it came back the battery life seemed far worse and now it has died for a second time - screen again just 2 weeks out of warranty.
