Acer Laptop Aspire E5-573G-59C3 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 15.6

Pros: The hardware that comes with this laptop is fantastic for the price (469.99 with Free Shipping) I was expecting a laptop that is somewhat bulky but it is fairly thin but not thin to where you'll feel like you'll break it in your backpack. I love the fact that this laptop uses Nvidia Optimus to turn off the GT 940m video card when not in use as this laptop will run 5-6 hours when not used. And when you need it, it turns on seamlessly (it auto-detects which GPU it should use but it can be changed if desired.) Its completely white with black keys on the inside and black on the outside which actually looks quote nice. Also, its not a fingerprint magnet! The laptop is completely textured which stops those nasty fingerprints from presenting themselves. The back of the laptop can be serviced by removing 18 screws which doesn't seem very hard. Webcam looks very clear in a well lit room (haven't tested it in a dark room yet) Lastly, this laptop has a free optical drive bay that's not populated with a drive (So you can choose your own drive or utilize a converter to turn it into a secondary HDD/SSD bay)

Cons: None that really bothers me.

Other Thoughts: My laptop came configured with 1x8GB Hynix module (An additional slot is available for a maximum of 16GB of memory), a Seagate 1TB ST1000LM014 SSHD (The 8GB SSD is not available to the user but is used for auto caching data), a 1GbE Realtek Ethernet Controller and a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Wireless AC 2.0 module with Bluetooth 4.1 for those who are wondering about the internal hardware.

3 out of 5 eggs Too small! Lack of clear documentation. 04/21/2014

This review is from: Habey EMC-600S Silver Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Super-slim Mini-ITX HTPC/NAS/Server Chassis 60W

Pros: Great quality chassis! Comes with power supply.

Cons: Too small! I met the standard for maximum HSF clearance by an inch and it was right up against the top of the case and left no room for the HDD. Had to return and get a larger case.

Other Thoughts: You would think they would have factored in the maximum clearance with a HDD installed... Gave it three eggs because the case was nice but dropped two because they need to clearly document the maximum HSF height with an HDD installed!

MSI AM1I AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Arrived DOA, Rude support 04/21/2014

This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Built in BIOS speaker, Extremely inexpensive (15 dollars with a combo deal), HDMI output

Cons: Arrived DOA, would not POST (No beeps, no display, nada.) Rude support (See below.)

Other Thoughts: Received this board about 2 days ago for a fairly basic build. Threw it together with an Athlon 5350, A single ADATA XPG DDR3 1600 MHz memory stick, 600 watt PSU (That I used on another build and had lying around) and a 250GB Toshiba HDD. Crossed my fingers and powered it up, nothing. So I removed it from its case, removed the HDD and performed a breadboard build. Swapped the PSU and memory with another brand I picked up from the store and still no response. I could only get a response by removing its RAM module and then it beeps 3 times indicating 64k base memory error (because RAM is missing.) This leaves only the mainboard or APU. Wanting to see if I could get any insight as to why it wouldn't boot before RMA'ing it, I gave MSI a call. Hit all the extensions for motherboard support, 5 minute wait and I got connected to someone. They answered like they were in a rush and all I could get out was "I have an MSI AM1 board..." and from there the MSI rep cut me off and said that I called the desktop and notebook support line and their motherboard support guys weren't going to be in for another half-hour then disconnected me. I've never talked to a support staff that was so rude. So I've decided to return the board and go for another manufacturer (even if its a bit more) and stay away from MSI products in the future.
