Pros: Best mix of hardware I could find in the $1500 range
Great quality

Cons: None that I know of after one week of ownership

Other Thoughts: I do not recall having heard of Eluktronics before I saw one of their laptops featured in a Newegg deals email. I was just about to order an ASUS or MSI laptop when I decided to check out Eluktronics. I am glad I discovered them. They had exactly what I was waiting for ASUS or MSI to offer and at a price that was below the closest match I could find in other brands. Here is a summary of the research I had done that shows why Eluktronics was the best choice for me (most points for the things wanted, I did not want a larger screen), apologies if the formatting gets ruined by cut-n-paste from Excel:

NETGEAR WNA3100M-100ENS N300 Wireless Mini Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Unlike various other USB wireless adapters, I have not had any problems with this one. No mysterious disconnects that require disconnecting/reconnecting, no reinstallation of drivers/software, etc. It has simply done what it is supposed to do without trouble for over 6 months.

Cons: None that I know of.

MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST DirectX 11.1 N650TI TF 2GD5/OC BE 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Best combination of performance to price that I could find for my kids' computer, and only needing to drive 1600x900 resolution. Quiet, cool, and low power. Works fine for Minecraft, Torchlight, etc. No need to run triple-A titles at max quality. Due to Newegg's always low prices, the recent release of the 7** cards, and a great rebate, the final cost was only $140.

Cons: None that I know of.

Other Thoughts: I spend a lot of time researching the parts I buy for the computers I build and I rarely buy the latest just-released model/version. So, my reviews end up being mostly just confirmation of what many others have already discovered. Even so, I like to give credit where it is due, and this MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB has earned its high scores.
