This review is from: Lenovo U310 13" Touch Intel Core i5 4GB / 500GB HDD (59365302)
I'm getting around 6 hrs of battery life using 30-40% brightness with typical random web use. Touchpad is large and responsive. Touchscreen seems to work fine, though I really use it only to scroll webpages. I would purchase again.
Cons: -Windows 8
-Touch pad does not have dedicated buttons and the touch surface continues into the "pressure surface" for the buttons. Some may found that a positive, I accidently perform dual touch actions often.
-Keyboard flexes a tiny bit when typing. Not sure what the net effect will be over time, but I share the concern of other reviews.
Other Thoughts: For the price asked, this is a wonderful product. I'm not having any wifi issues, leading me to believe its either router specific or people overreacting due to previous issues acknowledged by Lenovo. Speedtest results were 0ms ping, 30mbps down, and 5mbps up. Been downloading my software a solid 3 walls/floors away from my router with no problems. It fit my wishlist perfectly - thin, light, cool running, battery life, and decently powerful. It is sharp atheistically to boot. I have multi GPU, liquid cooled desktops if I want to game; the gaming laptop I purchased was a complete waste.
Note: My wife purchased a U410 at the same time as I purchased this and does not have wifi issues either. Another reason I believe it is either router related or bad luck.
This is a wonderful product if you have the proper expectations. If it fits your needs, enjoy.
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Just finished a build for a friend and it was the first time I got my hands on a Three Hundred. This case is spectacular for the price. Everything is rolled brilliantly. It's understated look is both classy and aggressive. Best of all, with a couple front fans it moves a ton of air.
Cons: The only thing that bothered me was that the front panel cables (which are of very high quality) are a bit short. Couldn't get quite as clean cable management as I would have preferred, but definately not worth an egg.
Other Thoughts: This thing is great. The included fans are quiet and move plenty air. I'm in love with this case. I want to keep it for myelf. I am seriously considering buying one to replace a budget build I have in a Thermaltake V3. For a couple dollars more, it is night and day in quality. I told my friend that sometimes a result of stress testing is the case looks totally different so don't be surprised when you pick up the PC!READ FULL REVIEW
