Pros: Great, all-in-one adapter for IDE & Sata drives. Makes transferring data quick and easy during PC upgrades/refreshes.
Cons: COMES WITH EUROPEAN POWER SUPPLY. NOT the North American plug that is pictured.
This wasn't an issue for me, as I travel a lot and have plug adapters aplenty, but other consumers may need to spend another $10-$20 to be able to use this.
Pros: Older quad core with 8GB ram, 1TB HD with Win7Pro installed. Hard to beat it. Win7 started right up.
This one came with the Q9550 processor. 2.83GHz instead of the Q6600 2.4GHz
Other Thoughts: Bought for $290. Cannot beat it. Upgrading Mom from a P4 2.2Ghz. for Christmas and this was a great deal.
I changed the CMOS battery and cleaned/added new thermal compound just because.
Full system refurbs should come with a checklist of maintenance performed during the refurb.
Had to sit through an initial 132 important updates for Win7, which of course put it in the recursive loop of check/install updates for 3 hours. Older Win7ProSP1, but well worth it.
Pros: Excellent machine for $289. Can't beat it. It's not a Core i3 processor, but still performs great. Neat Asus software package to play with the camera.
Other Thoughts: My daughter's old Compaq Evo 510c finally gave up the ghost while I was out of the country last year. After searching for a replacement mainboard, I found this Asus laptop here on Newegg for $289. My only mistake was not buying a second one at the same. Great machine.READ FULL REVIEW
