Pros: Excellent laptop for $350. Quad core 1.5GHz AMD A6 is more than enough for pretty much anything I want to do. The integrated graphics is actually incredibly good, able to play modern games at pretty decent settings. The laptop itself is built pretty nicely, the track pad is nice, and the screen is actually pretty good. Included memory is DDR3-1600MHz instead of the cheap DDR3-1333MHz, which is helpful in making sure the integrated graphics performs to its full potential.
Cons: - shift button is a little small which is a slight inconvenience for my large hands
Other Thoughts: - While memory included is fast DDR3-1600MHz, it's a single stick, so in order to double memory bandwidth (and significantly improve graphics performance), get a second stick. This gives you 8GB of memory AND increases bandwidth for cheap.
- Stock 5400RPM drive, while necessary for the price point of the laptop, is slow. Replace it with a solid state drive and it'll feel like upgrading all over again. I put a Vertex 4 128GB in here and it works fantastically.
Pros: Well built, sturdy card. Runs cool, extremely fast, and overclocks quite well.
Cons: It wasn't free? :)
Other Thoughts: This is my 10th or so Zotac card and I love their stuff!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Inexpensive
Cons: - Not available anymore? This makes me sad.
Other Thoughts: I bought this a little while ago for a build that never went through. I finally got a chance to use it in a build and it's awesome. Not trying to power Crossfire 7970s with an i7 3960X, but for a budget supply meant to power a nice, efficient PC, it's pretty excellent.READ FULL REVIEW
