Pros: I purchased these ram sticks on a combo deal during black-friday week of 2012 and they still run great in 2015. (I got an amazing deal of 53 dollars after taxes (CA. USA). Reliable 2x8gb (16gb) sticks.
Cons: Might be too bulky for some.
Other Thoughts: I had to tear off one of the metal heat dispensing frames for one of my ram sticks because It was colliding with my new cpu heatsink cooler. Just used a screw driver to pry it at the top area, never touched the PCB with anything besides my gloves. (Ram does not get that hot, Peripheral fans cool enough)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this laptop for college coursework and a little bit of gaming here and there. Does everything it needs to do and runs games such as Minecraft and League of Legends with relatively high FPS (45-65) on higher settings. The latest gen CPU (4th gen) was worth purchasing. You only need to slide a small tab to pull out the battery which is good if you like to save the lifespan of the battery pack by not using it while plugged in at a desk. The laptop has 2 slots for removable SODIMM-Ram and comes with a single 4gb stick in one. It was easy to install a second 4gb low volt 1.35v ram stick into the second slot.
Cons: Windows 8 is terrible. It thinks the 15.6inch screen is a 8inch tablet. Everything looks ridiculous in the standard win8 start-up and in all of their apps. Always use desktop mode. Recommend upgrading to 8.1 right away.
Other Thoughts: No CD-drive (Not a problem though). Windows 8 is bad but I do not recommend you purchase an older laptop just because you want Windows 7. The hardware does matter.READ FULL REVIEW
