This review is from: Timbuk2 Commute Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger - M
Pros: Build quality
Cons: Not exciting to look at (I have the basic black)
It didn't come with beer
Other Thoughts: Really nice bag that I got from NewEgg at a great price. I was replacing an older bag that didn't have nearly as many nice features as this one. The size is perfect for an ultranote, an iPad, a notebook and all of the other stuff that carry around with you (pens, pencils, chargers, etc.) It works well either slung across the shoulder or just draped over one. I really like the well thought out section for the notebook that allows you to get it out quickly and easily if you need to. So far, it has proven very durable an useful in a couple of months heavy use. Overall, a great bag.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good layout
High quality components
Solid feature set
Cons: Tech support is a joke
Other Thoughts: The quality of construction and design is quite high. The layout makes sense to me and it was easy to work with. It has the basic features I was looking for and serves as a nice base for an ITX format AMD APU system.
On the minus side, I couldn't get the BIOS to update using the Q-Flash utility and sent in support request. The response parroted the documentation which is quite annoying. I eventually solved the problem using the @BIOS tool, but tech support was no help.
Note that if you want to use a FM2+ AMD chip you will have to have an FM2 chip around to boot it up and update the BIOS first. This is visible if you read the notes on the GIGABYTE website, but should be more prominent because that would be highly disappointing.
Overall, a nice board if you are willing to figure a few things out.
