Pros: Vibrant screen - HD; best laptop sound I've ever heard; 7200 RPM HDD; pleasant design; fast
Cons: Windows 8 of course.
Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop for my wife who owns a print and binding business. She needs the ability to do a ton of document/image editing and the usual Dell laptops lack a discrete video card and a 7200 rpm HDD. This laptop resolved all of those issues.
In addition to the core requirements, the screen is very vibrant and the sound is actually really good. She can now watch AND listen to her shows when she is working late at night. The jury is out on the Killer NIC but at least it isn't a negative - might be a positive once I can take advantage of the AC. I just bought a Netgear Nighthawk, so maybe this NIC will be a great fit.
This review is from: NETGEAR Powerline 500 Mbps Kit with WiFi - N Access Point (XWNB5201)
Pros: Easy to setup
Cons: The wireless adapter drops off every minute or so. There is no indication by the genie software that I'm having issues and the line quality is green. Even when it is connected, it is 5 times slower than my Asus router. Guess I need to rethink how I'm going to stretch 300 ft of Ethernet cable through 3 floors.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and somewhat cool. Easy to overclock. Fans aren't any louder than a 7950.
Cons: I should have gotten the 2GB version since I don't use multiple monitors. The other thing that knocked an egg off is I never could get Metro registered because the site says the code has already been used. If you are buying this card because of the game, treat this like a rebate.READ FULL REVIEW
