1 out of 5 eggs Stick with Adobe Acrobat/Reader 01/23/2015

This review is from: Corel PDF Fusion

Pros: Comes in a nice box. The flipping page idea is great and the only thing worth buying this software for... and then ONLY if you use it on 8.5" x 11" docs,

Cons: How many times have you pulled up a page from a PDF document and wanted to take a quick screen shot of it with the Microsoft Snipping Tool, that is easy with Adobe but with Corel PDF it is impossible as Corel will make images disappear to prevent you from "snipping" an image out of their proprietary program. And if you work with large AutoCad drawings sent to you in PDF you can forgettaboutit trying to load them in Corel PDF Fusion... those large drawings will choke and lock your computer up. This was a total waste of money. I went back to Adobe.

Dell Precision M6600 Laptop Computer - Intel Core i7 2620M 2.7Ghz, 2x500GB Hard Drives, 8GB DDR3, DVDRW, 17

Pros: Mine unit was never used, brand spanking new. No dead pixels. I pulled both mechanical HDs out and replaced them with a 120GB SSD and a 480GB SSD. WEI is CPU 7.1, Memory 7.4, Aero 7.1, Graphics 7.1, HD 7.9. I especially like the extra mSATA slot which I filled with a 120GB Mushkin unit and cloned my boot drive to for emergency back-up. This machine has VGA, HDMI, DP video output. sSATA and all USB (incl USB3) work perfect. Very easy to remove covers and exchange internal hardware. Built like a tank. I like the power of the intel i7 CPU even though it is only 2 cores, it is plenty fast in graphics and CAD work for me. WIFI works easily. Downloading all the drivers from Dell to reinstall fresh copy of Win 7-64bit was smooth as silk. This machine is heavy so you will need some muscles to tote it around if you are road warrior like me. I bought a Staples fold-up steel carrier with wheels for my computer bag because I can't carry this machinery anymore over my shoulder, but when I set up in the hotel I am king of the road with this laptop. Has every connection you can think of except DVI. great machine... that is, once you add a webcam with microphone.

Cons: No built-in webcam or microphone. Audio on HDMI connection does not work. I think the HDMI software driver is wrong/broke. AC/DC power supply weighs as much as a brick... no seriously, it weighs as much as a brick and is as big as one too.

Other Thoughts: Glad I bought it. I feel like I spent my money very wisely.

2 out of 5 eggs ETA and Live Traffic Update stopped after 1 year 12/13/2014

This review is from: GARMIN 7.0" GPS Navigation w/ Lifetime Map & Traffic Update

Pros: This is my third Garmin GPS unit. I like the bigger screen and the speed is acceptable. It links up to the web update service quite easily.

Cons: After one year the ETA (Estimated Arrival Time) feature plus the Lifetime Traffic Update stopped dead while on the road in Tennessee. I want the basic required ETA display/info back on my machine at the very least. If it takes another software then I urge Garmin to get it solved fast. Until then I am going to be a very unhappy Garmin customer.
