Pros: I had no problems with these memory. No blue screens, which are usually attributed to bad memory.
Cons: not for competitive gaming (FPS games), there are better memory for that
Other Thoughts: Great for almost everything else, even for WOW.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LINKSYS WPC300N-BP Wireless-N Notebook Adapter
Pros: It works great when installed properly. For Windows XP, install the driver only ... not the software.
Cons: Do not install from software provided ... it causes conflict with windows XP and will not work.
Other Thoughts: FOR XP USERS
You will need to just pop in the network card, at which time you'll get a message on windows saying a hardware is detected, do you wish to search for drivers for it? Say yes, then pop in the disc provided... then have windows search for the driver in the cd drive. Or if you've downloaded the driver from manufacturer's website, then search for the driver in that folder. Never run setup from the software, it does not work.
My network card is running great ... even on a 400mhz Pentium II laptop. So I don't doubt the quality of the product... just the software isn't tested properly before it was packaged for sale.
Pros: Tiny and extremely mobile, with the included pouch you can carry it around like a text book, no backpack is necessary unless you're bringing along the charger and other accessories. I get about 3.5 to 4 hours of battery life inside bookstore hotspots ... so it drains battery if you're running processing intensive stuff (like net surfing). If all you're doing is typing up reports, then this should last past 5 hours. VGA connector on this netbook means you can use this little angle at home by hooking it up to a bigger display. (replaces entire PC and saves space) Three USB 2.0 slots means you can hook up mouse+keyboard to it with an extra slot for other stuff. This makes a perfect gift for kids and working adults alike... even to yourself =)
Cons: Tiny keyboard takes a lot of getting used to, especially the right shift key. Screen size is ok for me, but I'd recommend people getting the 10" netbook for slightly more, since it's easier on the eyes.
Not AMD processor. (I've always supported AMD products, but disappointed that they're not trying to compete in the netbook arena, but rather making chips for laptops that costs twice as much)
Not a doggy chew toy!
Other Thoughts: Upgraded to Patriot 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Laptop Memory. Which makes very little difference compared to the included 1GB Memory.
Programs I've loaded that runs surprisingly well ...
- Adobe Photoshop 7.0
- Vocaloid 2 (japanese voice synthsizer)
- Itunes (for use w/ ipod, or mp3s you download off the web)
- Veoh web player beta (for downloading videos)
- freeware AVG antivirus
