ThinkCentre Desktop PC M93p Tiny (10AB0010US) Intel Core i5 4570T (2.90 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4600 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Even if it wasn't tiny, this would be a very good business desktop. The M93p takes standard DDR3L SO-DIMM's, so bumping to 8 GB is easy. SSD's are a good upgrade, as well. The compact form factor still has support for dual-monitors and GbE in addition to a WiFi adapter. Plenty of USB ports and a good quality power supply round out a neat little unit. Ordering two more today.

Cons: Price before huge discount, for $800 I would want a box I can put a second drive in.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for business use in most situations, compelling price point.

StarTech MSTP3MDPUGBK Surface™ Pro 3 HDMI VGA and Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Bundle – MDP to HDMI / VGA – USB 3.0 to GbE
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this kit for my Surface Pro 3 to make it possible to have an Ethernet connection AND a USB-->Serial going at the same time - I use a GoldX cable plugged into the passthrough USB, works perfectly. Takes all the hassle out of using a Surface to program switches and routers. I have since bought a couple more for my Controls people that are programming buildings and production lines with the same Ethernet/Serial combo, and will have to buy more as I deploy more of the Surface units. The Controls folks have also used the video out dongles to do on-site training for customers, driving big displays for multiple users to view.

Cons: I would be fine with the tether being half as long, kind of floppy as it is.

Other Thoughts: Great combo of features, and good pricing.

StarTech MDP2HDMI Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Video Adapter Converter
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works perfectly for task 12/21/2014

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDMI Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Video Adapter Converter

Pros: I bought one of these for a Surface Pro 2 user, will now have to buy more for other Pro 2/Pro 3 users. It was reasonably priced and completely compatible, and is miles ahead of the driver pain of a USB -> HDMI converter. Since the little Surface's have only one USB, getting the MDP to do all the work is definitely the way to go.

Cons: Not free? I dunno, I'm still a little goosey about "off brand" devices, then I look around my office and see at the StarTech bits and pieces I have that work as expected, and then I feel better about things.

Other Thoughts: Works as expected, and will be buying more.
