5 out of 5 eggsAn update for others

Pros: Finger print reader, smart card reader (handy for a DoD type of work),
Mobile Intel QM67 Express
Platform Technology: Intel vPro Technology
Security Devices: SmartCard reader

Just giving info that is not posted on NewEgg. This is highly comparable to my Thinkpads and Elite books, at a fraction of the price. I also own a A73E/K73E i7.
I love these machines.

Cons: none that I can think of. All of mine are running rhel 5/6 beautifully.

Other Thoughts: As a heads up, the memory controller now a days is on the CPU, and thus you need to look that up. I have a couple of these with 16GB of ram.

Basically, Great budget Business class PC.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exceptional design and build quality. Feature rich - maybe too many goodies - not sure if I want to secure the unit with the fingerprint reader and risk losing everything if the system fails, or if I lose a fingertip. Docking station availability. Spill-proof keyboard and special shock-mounted drive. External switch to shut off Bluetooth & WiFi radios.

Cons: No OS DVD. Wastes a needed partition for recovery software. Probably the same for all competition, but this makes no sense for a business-class PC. Offset is that a utility is provided to burn the recovery files to 4 DVDs. Only 2 USB slots (w/o docking station). No DVI monitor connection (w/o docking station), although HMDI to DVI adapters are available.

Other Thoughts: I'm a programmer. I don't use this for games. I really don't care how well it plays videos-just want a sharp-readable screen, a good keyboard, optical drive, ample and fast disk storage, which this provides. Nice features, like ability to disable touchpad if a mouse is connected. Hate touchpads, but this has the most usable one I've used. I use this primarily with an external keyboard and mouse, which this PC accommodates very easily.

One of my selection criteria was the availability of a docking station. (Surprising how few manufacturers offer them.) The mating ASUS Power Station is the easiest-to-use solution I've seen and is reasonably priced, but not carried by NewEgg.

This hardware warrants additional review after I manage to get everything setup and get some practical use, so I plan on following up.

This is one of very few major computer purchases I have not made from NewEgg. The price differential on this item was considerably greater than normal. Usually, if NewEgg is undercut, it's only by a few % and not worth sacrificing NewEgg's absolutely terrific return policy. In my case, the differential was significant and I've had good experience with the alternate vendor.
