Pros: - Amazing processor
-Excellent graphics chip
-Very large and snappy hard drive (HGST brand 1TB, 32MB cache,7200RPM)
-Speedy memory (1600mhz)
- Nice keyboard (clicky chiclet style, personal preference)
-Cooling is better than expected, and stellar with a large cooling pad)
-Battery life is good for this sort of laptop (see other thoughts for more info)
-Durable, plastic finish
-lots of internal upgrade ability
-Windows 8.1 is snappy and responsive, better than Windows 8 that I used last
-Quite light for the amount of hardware in it
-VERY little bloatware, happily surprised
-Touchpad is simple and nice, with smooth scrolling
-Simplistic and elegant design (personal preference)

Cons: -Screen is matte and a TN type panel, thus giving a good picture but poor color accuracy for professionals
-Graphics card is placed right under where your palm rests during gaming, thus heating up your palm slightly
-Windows 8.1, while I find good, is much harder to get to certain tweaking options that I find easily accessibly in windows 8
-Battery life is fair, but could be better

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop because I have heard good things about gigabyte and this was the best for the dollar for what I wanted as of the time i'm writing this. The intel processor is snappy and responsive, while staying cool and quiet. The GTX 850m plays games well ( I can max out Warframe easily at 1080P with all ultra settings besides nvidia physx turned off). The screen, while not perfect or as nice as my HP 25llx on my desktop, is still great and I have no complains for my uses as gaming and web browsing is not affected by some slightly off colors. Battery life is fair, around 2.5 hours from full charge to 10% when web browsing and doing basic things (any video playback will yield lower battery life). This laptop is NOT made directly from gigabyte, but rather is based off of the Sager NP6658 and the Clevo W650SJ laptop models. I've heard good things about sager and clevo so I dont see this as an issue, plus this means that replacement parts are easier to find for me if needed in the future. The battery is also a model w650bat-6 and there is a a 62wh battery that will fit this if you can find it ( the one this laptop is a 48wh battery). Overall I really like the laptop and am happy with my purchase, and I hope this review helps those looking to purchase this fine laptop!

Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent Upgrade from a mid tower 03/01/2014

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Very spacious inside
- Not OVERLY large on the outside ( but its big, its a full tower of course)
-Modular hard drive bays very handy
-Lots of places for fans
-4 USB ports (2 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0) up front is perfect
-Simplistic look while being very stylish

Cons: -Supplied fans are adequate, but could be better for the price
- Bottom mounted fans in place of the hard drive cages do not come with air filters
-If you put a disc drive in the 5.25 inch bays, the front panel doesn't look as flush with the rest of the case

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best cases ive ever built in and im glad I got it. I upgraded from an Antec 902 case (mid tower) and the extra space was very welcome. It makes upgrading very very easy. While the case has its flaws (see cons), It is an excellent purchase on my part and im very happy with it

Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST1000NM0033 1TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: - 128 MB cache
-Enterprise quality, meant to last longer than standard drives
-Not very loud at all. Noise is similar to your typical 7200 RPM desktop hard drive

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Im using this in my desktop as a data drive to compliment my SSD. Its noticeably speedier than my old 7200RPM hard drive that had a mere 16 MB cache. Its good to know that the extra cache helps a lot, making the purchase well worth it to me
