Pros: -highly portable
-runs cool and quiet
-reliable, no unnecessary hang-ups even with a few things running at once (Digsby, Xion, Google Chrome with 4+ tabs)
-keyboard is spaced to emulate a regular mini keyboard, and extremely easy to type on
-touchpad is seamlessly built into the wrist rest and couldn't be any more aesthetically appealing
-touchpad also has multi-touch capability(i.e. zoom in/out on webpages, pictures, etc.) which can come in handy
-BATTERY LIFE! with the right power/brightness settings, can run for well over an outstanding 11 hours of general use
-function keys make it extremely easy to manage the basic functions you normally need to modify in control panel. makes using this netbook more than pleasurable.
-crystal-clear display. native and max resolution is only 1024x600 but couldn't look better for what it is. rather easy to see basically any text on the screen, regardless of font size
Cons: -processor can be slow, especially for any major installations as well as any form of multi-tasking(which can be expected, it's a low power-consumption single-core processor)
-1gig of ram may cut it for basic use, but to have more than just a few things open at once, memory usage skyrockets and severely bogs the entire system down for upwards to 30 seconds until anything becomes responsive again
-processor isn't strong enough to support 720p or greater playback. have only tried it via youtube, but anything above 480p playback becomes choppy and basically unwatchable. but for a netbook, can you really expect any more?
Other Thoughts: if you're looking for a nice, cheap on-the-go laptop, this is the way to go. grab one of these netbooks up as well as a 2gb 200pin SO-DIMM upgrade to swap out from the stock 1gig stick, and you'll be impressed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK - Aluminum 3.5" Black IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: cheap cost compared to the rest of external enclosures. PnP holds up to its name. plugged in a HD, USB and power and flipped the power switch and was good to go within seconds. nice case, looks good. even comes with a vertical stand so it doesn't take up too much room on your desktop or wherever you set it up at. no issues thus far.
Cons: none whatsoever just yet.
Other Thoughts: Rosewill seems to be a mid-low end brand, but their prices and quality of their products can't really be beat for the products you get from them, especially at the low costs when aesthetically, all of their products i've seen have looked to be on-par with mid-high end product brands.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: runs cool(~140F on general use and ~160 on heavy load, both utilitizing dual display) and is seemingly no louder than my old fanless card this one replaced. runs almost every game i've attempted at 1920x1080 resolution at max settings. starts to bog when AA 4x or greater is applied, though. but at this high of a res, i'm not disappointed. i could barely play any games at 1680x1024 with medium settings with my old 8600GTS. as this review title depicts, it's a great card for what the price is. definitely not disappointed.
Cons: not as powerful as some of the highest-end cards, but on a budget, who can really complain?
Other Thoughts: all in all, an amazing card for what you spend. if you're thinking about picking up one of these, don't hesitate--it's probably the best buy at the moment.READ FULL REVIEW
