Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT12864AC667

Pros: Watching football with a friend, he mentioned wanting more memory for his Gateway laptop. I said, hey, Newegg has a sale, he said, here's a $20, just do it. A week later he's running faster with 2 GB and gets change from his Jackson.

Cons: I paid over $60 for my laptop memory a little over a year ago. These things will happen (and that's good, actually). Oh, and the Eagles lost.

Other Thoughts: No excuse for not upgrading. Why, when I was a boy do you know how much 2 GB would have cost? How many rooms it would have filled?

Acer X193Wb Black 19

Pros: I'm reiterating my initial review as this was a Christmas present; crisp, sharp, bright, fits on the desk better than the bulky CRT, less power. Can't imagine a better image. Very satisfied, for a fabulous (Black Friday) price.

Cons: It wasn't free (!?), but the shipping was!

Other Thoughts: Warning note: Older graphics may not support 1440x900 resolution, dad's 5-ish year old computer on-board graphics ran it, but not at native res.

Expecting this, found a great deal on an ATI Radeon 9200 (had to be PCI for this machine), and it's perfect.

One reviewer was disappointed in the image quality, most likely not running at native res -- that is critical for LCD displays (just like laptops).

5 out of 5 eggs Such an upgrade! 12/10/2008

This review is from: Acer X193Wb Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 ACM

Pros: This is a future present so is not in full use yet, but to check it out I did try it with my (coincidentally) Acer laptop. Results are magnificent (after I set the resolution properly)! Images look richer and deeper on this monitor than the laptop screen, even with no tweaking. No deceased pixels (or parrots).

Terrific deal for (oh, Newegg doesn't want price quotes, let's just say a squeak below 3 digits) and free shipping, no tax.

Better than your average warranty at 3 years too.

Other than obvious features like bigger and cheaper, built-in TV tuner, and a slot for toast, hard to say what could be improved.

Cons: As others have noted, no DVI, but right now don't have that output anyway. I'd only knock off a half-egg for that, so based on what it purports to be, I'll leave it at a fiver.

Other Thoughts: I got this as a Christmas present for my dad; he has a perfectly serviceable CRT monitor and has oft remarked about its bulk and how it consumes his desk; yet he couldn't justify dropping coin for a flat-panel LCD.

So that's the deal about presents, right? Something a person would really enjoy but hesitate to buy for themselves. Maybe I'll post another review after Dec. 25th.
