HP Laptop EliteBook 8740W Intel Core i5 2.40 GHz 4 GB Memory 250 GB HDD 17.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Excellent build quality.
-Comfortable keyboard, and windows 7.

Cons: -Some bloatware.

Other Thoughts: The graphics card is an AMD 5800 series, but the OS doesn't specify which one. My guess is that it is a Fire Pro. Whatever the case it runs games surprisingly well and I assume it would run circles around any other laptop when it comes to CAD programs. For $270 this was a hell of a deal.

HP Promo E221-AM Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -It has a displayport connector.
-It has a two port usb hub built in.
-Adjustable screen, including rotation (Great for programmers).

Cons: I won't know until I actually use it. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: It did not come with a displayport cable as I had hoped. Gotta wait another few days for the cable to come in. You can't find them anywhere in retail outlets. The employees will stare at you like a deer in the headlights if you ask them about it.

Make sure your order a displayport cable alongside this monitor. Otherwise you will be excited opening the box, only to be let down by the fact that you have to wait to use it.

It does however come with a vga cable. So if you're using an older graphics card you'll be fine.

Dell Inspiron 11 – 3147 11.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tablet mode is neat.
Laptop is faster than I expected.
Can even handle some games on low settings.

Cons: No ethernet port is a bummer.
The bios is poorly designed. Booting from a usb stick is a pain.

Other Thoughts: I got this laptop for free through a Time Warner Cable promotion. I really like it. It's a neat design, and honestly much better than I expected. For a sub $400 laptop it's really quite snappy, and the IPS screen is nice. I can play League of Legends on this laptop, so I'm happy there. You really can't do better than this laptop at this price point.
