Cons: - Kinda louder than my old cd drive, but spinning 50% faster will do thatREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
Pros: - Tracks my logitech g400 well
- Sticks to my wooden desk pretty well (not like the giant thing's going anywhere)
- Rolls up very easily and will also fit flat in any laptop case, so it's as easy as any other mousepad to haul around (much more so than the metal ones).
Cons: - Way bigger than it needs to be. You could cut it in half and get 2 regular sized mousepads. Make sure you have sufficient desk space for this, though it can easily go under things if you don't so not really an issue.
Other Thoughts: It comes with a sticker so you can show off that you paid $12 for a mousepad I guessREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Tried out all sorts of different flavors of linux on this thing, and the one with the best success was Linux Mint 15. All the FN+keyboard keys work out of the box including, my favorites, the disable touchpad and turn of monitor buttons (which should exist on ALL laptops). So did wireless, and everything else I have encountered. Native touch support is fairly good, and there are addons for Firefox and Chrome (ubuntu/debian version) such as "Grab and drag", make using the touchscreen as the primary input device very viable (the right click button on the keyboard helps).
Cons: - All versions of ubuntu 12.04+ with touch support have a bug where touch-tap will stop working after a random amount of time until you logg out/in. I assume this will also exist on the other -buntus though I have not tried it yet. However, I saw others having this issue with other brands of laptops so I believe it to be an OS issue and not a negative of this product specifically.
Other Thoughts: -The review immidiately below me (at least at time of writing this review) is me. I wish there was a way to edit reviews because I just wanted to update to say mint works better than ubuntu as my last review was before I encountered that issue with touch tap, and I don't want someone else wasting hours trying to get that to work.
-I plan to eventually dual-boot mint and windows 8 (to run modest strategy games on the go) and have read of people getting it to work pretty well on this laptop, but I don't want to write a 3rd review for the same product.
