Pros: Runs very cool. Even at full load, it's not getting any hotter than 60C. Two fans and a large heatsink are quite effective. There's some serious power here for the price, and it's extremely quiet as well. I have yet to hear it at all over the low noise of my chassis fans.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: It's a big card, but no larger than my 550Ti was, and this packs a much bigger punch. Just make sure you have space for it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This stuff just blew me away. My CPU was running at around 80 C when under heavier loads, but once I put this compound on it, the operating temperature went down by about 10-15 C, which was more than I expected.
Other Thoughts: It's not very expensive, and you won't need much. It's worth every cent.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's small, lightweight, and has very good battery life. This is a great little machine for light use. It boots in seconds, and, since it's running on a SSD, it's just fast in general. Chrome OS is an ingenious idea, and it functions exactly as expected. The remote desktop function is a big plus.
Cons: I think the operating system could use a little refining to make it easier to get used to, but some things can be remedied with apps.
Other Thoughts: Just remember that this device is meant for low-stress tasks, and you'll be alright. It's only running 2 GB of RAM, and you've got 16 GB of internal storage to work with. It did come bundled with 2 free years of Google Drive, which is 100 GB of cloud storage, so there's that.READ FULL REVIEW
