Acer Laptop Aspire TimelineX AS4820T-7633 Intel Core i3 370M (2.40 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 14.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent performance for the money, sturdy construction (better than expected from the reviews I read before purchase), thin and light enough to be carried around comfortably for long period of time, above average battery life, and lastly, very quiet and doesn't run hot when CPU intensifies.

Cons: Flimsy and shallow USB ports! This is my biggest grip with this machine, the ports are so shallow that 1/3 of the plug is extended outward, slight touch will cause the connector to fall out. This brings to my second complaint, 3 USB ports out of 4 are aligned on the right side, exactly where the right hand/wrist movement will cause the connectors to become loose.

LCD is good for watching movies due to slight warm red hue tint, but bad for photo editing. I calibrated it and it's better now but it still has warmer hue than my other laptops.

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy this laptop from newegg since I have $100 coupon to use with another merchant. Overall, it is a very good notebook for the price, I only paid $500 for it so for that price it is a 5-star machine. i3 packs enough power for daily business use and is decent enough when some entertainment is required. I don't play games, so no thoughts on that aspect. And it is a slim build for a 14-inch, probably the best looking one in its price range.

Logitech K740 Illuminated USB Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Almost perfect 04/17/2009

This review is from: Logitech K740 Illuminated USB Keyboard

Pros: excellent typing feedback and build quality. makes you want to type more, I find myself writing longer emails after getting this KB.

Cons: contextual key needs to be activated via FN key because it is shared with print screen function next to the insert key. I prefer the normal layout of this key because I'm a KB guru in MS Excel so not having direct access is a quite a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: a real pleasure to use. the multimedia keys are pretty useless since logitech's setpoint software is pretty limited in customization. would be perfect if contextual key was placed where it should be (next to the right alt key).

ASUS Laptop F8 Series F8Sp-X1 Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 (2.00 GHz) 3 GB Memory 250 GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: fast and sturdy.

Cons: Fn key in place of ctrl, very annoying, I keep looking at the keyboard which I almost never do with other PC/Laptop.
screen is good but has somewhat limited view angle.
keyboard doesn't have enough reflex.
Hcontrol utility which controls multimedia key (including volume adj) sucks. if you don't care about the hotkeys next to the indicator lights, get rid of it then.

Other Thoughts: overall, very nice for $900, little annoyances here and there but nothing deal breaking.
