Pros: So ive been browsing for over 6 months for a good notebook that doesnt suck, can be used for browsing and gaming. This has it all. I dont play many games butthe ones i do play are pretty impressive. Skyrim on high to ultra with over 100 mods, including ENBs is playable about 30 FPS.
WoW on ultra with a steady 45 FPS in 25 man raids with mages and warlocks AoEing tons of trash down (DX9 not 11, it can handle 11 but not as well obviously).
Warframe on DX9 highest setting no issues what so ever. On DX11 slight spikes on FPS but still playable.
Cons: Really other then Windows 8, nothing much. I didnt really like that it only came with one 8GB stick, but that isnt much of and issues to drop and egg off. Just install classic shell, and be done with it. Windows 8.1 upgrade is free, but isnt much better.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend this to other people. I notice alot of poeple seem to have some issues, and that unfortunate for them. Ive had nothing but luck with MSI products. I still have an old MSI 7800GS card that STILL works perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown
Pros: While i did not buy this tablet from Newegg or any store i got it from a friend for about $150. I thought it was money well spent, and i was correct. I primarily use this for Excel spreadsheets on the go because i find it annoying lugging a 17" laptop around. Its quick to boot, not laggy and plays so far allof the Google Play games at it with no issues. The Tegra 3 Quad core is pretty impressive at loading my spreadsheets rather quickly, and sometimes even faster then the laptop that i get them on ( which has an i7, go figure). Im going to buy my mother one and probably a couple of other family members.
Cons: The only possible cons i could find is there is no SD card slot and the microUSB wont support connecting external storage. Which i have found a solution buy linking it with Skydrive.
Other Thoughts: Its not the biggest, but for the price and the quad core why wouldnt you get it? And if you wanna save $50 get the 16GB model... $200 isnt even that bad, compared to iPads and such going for double or triple the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this notebook because a friend had an older A6 and played Skyrim on High with the HD Textures. I was really impressed, and i really do think AMD hit spot on with this new APU technology. This Notebook NOT haveing a graphics card and being able to perform on par with much more expensive notebook at 2 times the price makes this quite the deal at only $750. I would definatly reccomend these computers out to anyone, im fact i bought my mother and GF the A8-4500M models.
Cons: There is only 2 things i can think of. 1. Keep watch of the power cord connected to the device. Its kinda dodgy and is prone to breaking on the inside of the computer. 2. Its came with 6GB of RAM which isnt bad but i have OCD and i like to match them in pairs. So i replaced them with 2 DDR3 1600 4GB sticks from Kingston. Also the HDD is slow at 5400RPMs. In the "windows" score the HDD was 5.9 while everything else on this computer was 7.3 or 7.4. I would reccoment replaceing the HDD with somthing faster. Other then that really great computer.
Other Thoughts: I reall think that AMD are on the right path with their A series CPUs, and im hopefull they will continue in devolping these. Sepnding $750 on a notebook that can play games that gaming notebooks can at 3/4 of the price is just an amazing idea. Kudos to AMD.READ FULL REVIEW
