Pros: This laptop processor is faster than my overclocked i5-2500k. Many people don't like windows 8 but windows 8 with a touchscreen rocks. I love windows 7 but once you get used to windows 8 you will like it more. Case is aluminum and feels very high quality. Always stays cool. You can also install a mSSD you can use as a cache device with intel rapid storage. With a 64gb cache my computer boots in about 7 seconds and is perceivably as fast as my desktop with a dedicated 128gb ssd. The speakers on this laptop are the best I have ever heard. Very loud and crisp for a laptop. Has a fingerprint reader that you can use for almost anything. I use mine for my windows logon and everything that needs a password on my browser. Battery can last all day with new haswell processor. I have gone as long as two days without charging it.
Cons: No disk drive but I am fine with that. I know how to create a disk image file with my desktop and install from a usb flash drive. Can not boot from mSSD slot. It would be nice if this were addressed in future bios updates. I installed a mSSD and cannot boot from my SSD. I called HP tech support and at this time no options to boot from this slot are possible. Some people posted online that they can clone the operating system onto the mSSD and delete the boot section from the HDD then use system repair disk to fix but this did not work for me. I spent an entire day trying to make this work but it is not possible.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Timbuk2 Q Laptop Backpack
Pros: I am an avid hiker and own several high quality, brand name hiking backpacks. I know quality in a backpack. This bag has no week points. It is very sturdy. It has high quality seams and zippers. It has enough storage pockets for everything I need including pens, notebooks, laptop, charger, and various other things. I even store my 7" tablet in one of the pockets. It is light weight. I have no problems with the laptop sliding past the false bottom in the laptop storage pocket that another reviewer had. Anyone with a 15 inch or smaller or smaller laptop that weighs less than 8 pounds should also have no problem.
Cons: I have no cons. It may be small if you plan to use it to carry more than 2 textbooks but other than that, no real cons.
Other Thoughts: The bottle opener is not very useful to me and doesn't make sense for my purpose. Most people only use bottle openers to open beer and my laptop bag doesn't go anywhere that people go to drink beer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG 55" Class (54.6" Diag.) 1080p TruMotion 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV 55LM6200
Pros: Beautiful picture quality compared to a 4 year old 40" Samsung. Much deeper blacks and amazing contrast ratio. The 3D is amazing on this tv. I have tried the 3D tvs on display at Best Buy but this one has far greater 3D quality then those. Has similar 3D depth as at a movie theatre. It also does a pretty decent job of upconverting 2D to 3D but it is not quite the same amount of 3D depth as an actual 3D movie. Another bonus feature that I did not know I would be receiving is the quality of the Netflix app. When using the Netflix app on this tv you can watch movies in 1080p resolution for most movies that I have tried. The best I ever had before on my computer was 720p. I have also read a number of complaints about the wii style remote control that comes with this tv but I really like it. It is very accurate and easy to use. I have had no problems with it what so ever and I like that it does not have so many buttons to learn. Its kind of like using a computer mouse with a few more buttons.
Cons: The 2D to 3D converter is not perfect but I don't think any of them are. Movies designed for 3D are always better.READ FULL REVIEW
