Pros: This laptop is very sleek and powerful for the price. i will give a thorough review after some time with it. However.. See other thoughts.
Cons: None, i think...
Other Thoughts: I know windows experience index isn't the most trustworthy tool, but I expected the 8750m to at least match or exceed the a10 8650g's WEI, which seems to be around 6.7 aero and 6.7 gaming on win 8. I am pushing 4.6 aero and 6.3 gaming. Uploaded all the latest drivers and no difference. Also did some other benchmarking tests, like novabench and 3dmark and I think I should be seeing better performance with or without dual graphics. Its the same either way, and the GPU is showing up in the tests.
Can anyone post thier WEI scores so I can see where others are in terms of GPU performance?
Pros: This is a nice case and very easy to work with. I've put together a few budget HTPC builds with this and another Apex and like the general layout of these cases. These aren't the smallest HTPC cases you could go with, but if you're looking to add some low profile PCI cards to a micro ATX, then this is a great option. Just be careful if you have to remove the front panel, the clips are a bit delicate.
Cons: My only concern would really be the PSU, but I haven't had one fail so far. Also, the case fan could be a tiny bit quieter, but the right motherboard should allow you to control that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got this on shell shocker for 269.00. Its worth every penny I spent. It came with minor imperfections to the screen, that's about all I could find. There were a couple minor scratches but not major. (it'll be used anyway, nothing stays perfect)
The Asus pads are alot of hardware for the $$ esp. the refurb if you get a good one. Its fast, immediately updated to 4.1 jellybean. I believe Asus is on point with the updating.
I charged it when I received it, at first it wouldn't even power on, but it was just completely dead when I got it. I was almost worried there for a minute, but once I charged it, its been on one charge for almost a week, with medium usage. Very impressive. Its my first tablet, and I'm completely satisfied.
Cons: This one doesn't have as bright of a screen as the tf-700, but hasn't presented any problems. Works for me.READ FULL REVIEW
