5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: Great Value, good video card, good amount of memory. All around well balanced mid-range system, and the price can't be beat for the power you get.

Cons: Comes loaded with the usual brand computer programs, you might want to remove or disable all those

Other Thoughts: Bought this laptop for work purposes, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it handled my play purposes quite well. I have a desktop main PC for gaming, but for the money this is an excellent midrange buy.

5 out of 5 eggsLinux laptop update

Pros: Excellent Linux compatibility, 1024x768 screen is perfect for games , old and new alike. Decent sound excellent screen, good size, ease of use. nVidia video!

Cons: Wish I could get it without the Microsoft OS, mouse controls are a little over-sensitive. Could be an inch smaller in the WXH dimensions.

Other Thoughts: Got the modem going, just re-installed slmodem and, boom it worked. As a reasonably priced, reasonably sized gamer notebook, this is an absolutely marvelous unit.

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent Linux Laptop

Pros: Great 3D capabilities, standard hardware, reasonably small, light, backward game capabilities.

Cons: Microsoft tax, wiggy winmodem

Other Thoughts: Linux laptop: Distro: Mandriva club 2006 Dec edition.

Everything worked immediately except the modem. No funny business, no hacks, just load it up and it all worked. Quake 4 is quite playable, battery is good, 1024x768 is great for backwards compatability. A really nice laptop.

Too bad I can't get it without paying the Microsoft tax. Oh well, taxes are taxes.

5 out of 5 eggsTecra S2 is a very powerful laptop!

Pros: Very impressed with the size and weight of this machine for such a large screen, it honestly feels like you are carrying almost nothing,the geforce go 6600 is incredible compared to what I am used to, it runs fear on maximum graphics in quite a few areas which is quite impressive. Don't be fooled by the clock speed of the processor it can easily stay at pace with a p4 3.0GHz if not higher. The screen itself doesn't have much glare compared to some laptops which I was very happy with. The battery life is fairly nice considering what is on this laptop it can probably last an hour and a half or so watching a dvd, and maybe 2-3 hours if you are browseing the internet. (haven't really tested gameing without ac supply yet.)

Cons: There is only 512MB ram and it is two 256MB sticks which means that if you want to upgrade to 1024 ram you have to buy two 512 sticks :/, 64MB dedicated memory is ok but it really would have been nice to have 128MB but that really isn't that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: All in all I am very impressed and it was all that I was expecting and more. I would recomend this to anyone looking for a laptop that wants to do some gameing as well, or if you need a powerful machine that you can take anywhere with you.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent laptop!

Comments: First thing I did to check out the capabilities of the laptop, was install Serious Sam 2 on it. It ran VERY satisfyingly, with full textures at 1024x768.
My only gripe is that this arrived missing a restore disk. If anything goes wrong with the O.S., I could be in trouble...

4 out of 5 eggsTecra S2

Comments: Just recieved today. Everything I wanted and more. The item description specifically states there is NO Bluetooth, but there is on mine. Installed and fuctional. Only complaint is, no disc's, you have to make your own. For recovery, needed 7 CD's.
I'd buy another one from NewEgg in a heartbeat though.

5 out of 5 eggsfollow up to the first review

Comments: I AM AN IDIOT!

there is no Bluetooth installed

But Call Of Duty 2 plays pretty well on it.

Sorry to those that were influenced by me saying it had Bluetooth, it showed up in hardware manager, but does not appear to exist.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased!

Comments: I am very pleased with this laptop. I was not sure when I placed the order with no reviews to go off of.

Pros: Mine has BlueTooth card installed (not listed in the specs). everything else was accurate in the description. It runs much better than the T42 I have for work. Fired right up and was online in 5 minutes from pressing the power button the first time. Finish is nice and everything fits tight. Very nice LCD. Keyboard is acceptable, doesn't seem to have any loose areas.

Cons: Both DIMM slots are filled with 256MB each, so if you want a gig, you will have to order (2) 512MB DIMMS. One wish I have is that they would invest in a magnesium case like someone else.

Over all well worth the money!

But I wish I would have ordered it a week later so I could have gotten the extra $10 off plus the Dock for $99 :(

Buy it and enjoy!

PS I would ship Fed Ex next time though, even though UPS was on time, Fed Ex is always a day early.
