HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 (L4A53UT#ABA) Notebook Intel Core M 5Y71 (1.20GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 5300 12.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The newer series of Elitebooks that came out in Q2 are what last year's series should have been. HP has finally caught up with it's competitors in the premium line. Most units are now offered at a starting resolution of 1080p and this unit can do 1440p, although I run it at 1080p. Screen quality is top notch for a 12.5", ultrathin and the touch component works well. Viewing angles are very good so sharing with people sitting directly next to either side is good for collaboration. Unit comes packaged with 3 years of NBD onsite support. Adding ADP for 3 years to match is relatively cheap at $169.00 MSRP, use sku UZ281E. All other features shown on the specifications are as advertised. Lightweight and superfast for all business uses except those requiring discrete graphics like working in Autocad or Revit.

Cons: The one major hit the Elitebook line took this time around was the elimination of the Numpad on their 15.6" models. Clearly there is enough room on the unit for it, they just decided to use the same backlit keyboard part as the the smaller 14", 13.3", and 12.5" units in the Elitebook line. It's a great backlit keyboard as far as ultrabooks go but not having a Numpad for the 15.6" models should be considered sacrilege.

Other Thoughts: If you want something light and capable that will do you well for at least 3 years of use then look no further. For a dockign station go with sku D9Y32UT#ABA. Also, there is a special edition model of this Elitebook that takes the weight down from 2.8lbs to 2.2lbs!

Linksys WRT1900AC Wireless AC Dual Band Router AC1900, Open Source ready, eSATA/ USB 3.0 Ports

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy start up & set up.
Easy interface to navigate and configure.
Strong Signal. I even get 3 bars on my iPhone while in the garage.
Good Security and Parental control features.
eSATA & USB for fast makeshit networkable storage.

Cons: None so far. Appears some users were having issues with software and DOA but all good here. A bit steep in price, would like to see this unit price closer to $200.00.

Other Thoughts: None really, works as advertised.

Aorus X3PLUSv3-CF1 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50GHz) 16GB Memory 512GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 6 GB GDDR5 13.9
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Amazing power under 5lbs in a 14in form factor. The specs speak for themselves. Love the screen, love the keyboard although the arrow keys are very minimized. Battery life is improved compared to prior generations of gaming laptops. RJ-45 onboard gigabit ethernet on the back of the unit is a very welcome feature.

Cons: Unit will get warm but the heat management is much easier and better when compared to units that use the 800 series of mobile GPU. My only real drag about this system is the lack of Blu-ray option. If they can manage to fit a DVD in here they can at least figure a way to fit a BDROM for viewing Blu-rays. An onboard cell modem would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: Woud love to see this priced at just under $2k, paying $2.3k was a tough pill to swallow. Fitting all this in a 14in form factor requires comprimises in certain areas so any deficiency due to this accomplishment is really nitpicking at this point. Aorus/Gigabyte has a real winner with this unit.
