This review is from: CyberLink Power2Go 10 Essentials - Download
Pros: If it's not the free version that you can download directly from Cyberlink, no burner purchase required, then promoting it as some sort of bonus gift when you buy a burner is cool, and the functions that it says it can do are great.
Cons: If this is the same as the one that I can download right now, no purchase of a burner required, then this is a Scam. NewEgg needs to remove it as value add on that your getting for free. And on top of that the free version will download as the Platinum, work for 15 days full featured, then deactivate anything good about it and be basically bloatware that you will want to remove (all the functions that are promoted on the NewEgg Cyberlink page disappear)
Other Thoughts: Come on NewEgg, don't promote free software as some sort of goody look what your getting for buying this from us. Not RightREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big, good colors, everything looks crisp even when you increase font size which you will have to do. I guess you can thank IPS panel for that. But even with larger font size I can have 4 windows on one screen that are perfectly usable. I have a 3 year old Sandy Bridge-E system with a brand new AMD 290 Video Card, bought the card in anticipation of the new screen. I also have a 27' screen connected running 1920x1080 with a goal of a second one of these Monitors down the road. I haven't done any gaming on it yet. Been using it for work which requires a lot of logging into other computers, I will have 4 logmein windows up at a time, pretty cool to look at and makes my life a lot easier.
Cons: The display port cable that comes with it doesn't support 60Hz, so cheesy ACER, I thought at first it was an AMD/4K problem. Like i bought the shiny new card for nothing. So I found a hack that allowed to run at 40Hz instead of 30Hz which made it feel a little better than walking through quicksand. Ordered a Startech cable and poof, problem solved, all good since then
Other Thoughts: Dude, have it come with the correct cable and save yourself some tech support headaches, come onREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mobility,Construction, Weight, Performance, Battery Life
Where to start
- It's heavier than a tablet but not by much and it's a REAL computer. This is what Microsoft had in mind I am sure with Windows 8. Very easy to pick up with one hand, throw in a bag and go. This model has a cool trick that when you flip into Tablet mode the bottom of the keyboard rises up so that it's level instead of just feeling like a keyboard underneath the tablet. Good Idea! It's also a backlit keyboard which I love (can be turned off and on). The Screen is make of Gorilla Glass and is beautiful. Not sure why anybody is having GHOSTING problems. Not had single display problem and have played games on it, watched HD movies, etc.... It's onboard Intel Graphics so if you think you can play Battlefield 4 on it your smoking crack. But it's not meant to play those games so please don't ding it for something it's not designed to do. It's part of the Ideapad line (aka Business line), very sturdy. Sturdier than the first Yoga which was pretty good (i bought many 1st Gen Yogas for clients). It's not FLIMSY as others have said. That is absurd thing to say. The Yoga has been a hit for Lenovo and it's not because they're put together like a cheap toy. If you don't believe me just go play with one at a store. Not hard to figure out for yourself. We have the I5 with 128 SSD and 4GB RAM. That to me is the right balance between performance and price. Some models come with a stylus (ours didn't) but you can buy it after the fact. I just use my finger to scribble in OneNote, it looks good and the notes sync to my phone and desktop. I never thought much about Lenovo until the first Yoga came out but I have been impressed how they have taken Windows 8 and ran with it instead of crying about how terrible it is. And guess who is making money and growing their business......
Cons: Honestly, the cons are few. The screen can auto-rotate at times when you didn't want it to but there is a button on the side that will lock the screen. Some bloatware but not bad compared to other companies (Yea, I am looking at you Toshiba) and I have never seen a computer that had no bloatware.
Other Thoughts: I have setup or owned the first Yoga 13, the Yoga Pro 2 and the Yoga 2-1. It was/is the first mobile design where I said WOW so I tip my hat to Lenovo for being innovative instead of slapping Windows 8 on the same tired old laptopsREAD FULL REVIEW
