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.

BUFFALO WHR-300HP2D AirStation N300 Open Source DD-WRT Wireless Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Ridiculously easy to set up. GUI for configuration is cleaner than most. Cheap router, small size, built in 4-port switch.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Works very well for a single home with 2000 square feet. Perimeter of the house I get mostly 4 bars, sometimes 3. Goes to 5 when anywhere near the room the router is in.

TP-LINK TL-WN725N  Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very low profile, no bigger than the wireless connectors used by Logitech and other wireless peripheral manufacturers. Speed is more than adequate and the price is stellar. Recommend just buying to have on hand, even if you don't need it right away, have a spare on hand wireless "NIC" in case the onboard NIC from your laptop dies.

Cons: No cons unless it dies on you, in which case big deal, it's only a few bucks.

Other Thoughts: Essential to have on hand.
