This review is from: ROCCAT ROC-13-400 Alumic - Double-Sided Gaming Mousepad
Pros: Incredibly smooth
Cons: I use the wrist pad for my left hand. It's too high to use with the mouse.
Other Thoughts: I've been gaming (multiplayer) since the quake 2 days and I am used to very light mice. I have recently purchased Logitech G700s mouse and I've been losing my mind over how stiff it is on any surface(for me). I was searching for the best pad and someone said get anodized aluminum pad. I Its surface is incredibly smooth. Feels like skating on ice. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As all of you know, its performance is somewhat similar to the 7850 and at times slower. Since it's a Sea Island architecture, it is a lot more efficient in power which means best Performance/Watt ratio.
Plays Bioshock infinite at all ultra (2x AA 16x AF) at decent FPS.
Plays BF 3 at all ultra (2x AA 16x AF) at decent (30 - 80) FPS
Overall: Best performance/$
Cons: I don't know if anyone is experiencing this but I tried this card on two systems and when the OS powers down the monitor most of the time computer locks up.
Other Thoughts: There may be people curious about the system:

This review is from: Shuttle XS35V2 Intel NM10 Intel GMA 3150 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: Intel D525 Dual core (1.8 Ghz) only 13 watts TDP.
Fanless cooling, therefore quiet system
I checked the whole system's power usage, on idle (downloading - under 20% cpu load) it's about 14 Watts.
Cons: Network not stable. JMicron microcontroller this unit has is full of problems. If you install XP, it'll give you BSoD due to driver issues. I said ok these are new devices they don't support XP very well. Install Win 7, disable SD Card Reader, LAN still fails under load. This unit has a JMicron JMC251 controller that has SD Card Reader and LAN both in one chip. Sounds good and power efficient, but I have yet to make it work properly yet.
Other Thoughts: I'll probably return this and stick to something that I know very well even though I don't like it. Realtek integrated solutions for LAN, WLAN, sound etc. Even though I always prefer broadcom for WLAN solutions they are expensive and are not considered for book size units.READ FULL REVIEW
