ASUS N56JN-EB71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 2GB DDR3 15.6

Pros: This laptop has great components that make it incredibly competitive at the price I purchased it at ($700). I won't go into the specs of the parts because they are what they are (great processor, good dedicated card, etc). The inner body and outer lid are aluminum, which makes this feel very solid but it doesn't feel heavy. The end of the power cord that plugs into the laptop is a right-angle so doesn't jut out as much as other power cords I've seen. The track pad is large and the support for multi-touch is excellent. The audio is really rich for a laptop. Despite the industry trend I appreciate having an ODD for some software I don't yet have in digital-only form. having four USB 3.0 ports is great, especially since one of them is "live" meaning it supplies power when the laptop is off (great for charging devices). The display is nice, as long as you like matte finishes (which I do). The keyboard's keys are nicely spaced and have a very tactile feel, as opposed to some very slick keys or beveled keys that other laptops have.

As for specs, this laptop has an i7 4710HQ which makes it outstandingly fast. 8GB of RAM is plenty for my mobile needs, including modest gaming as well as programming. The graphics card performs well under load, albeit quite hot.

Added bonus: it comes with a disc full of hardware drivers in the event I need to install a fresh OS image.

Cons: To get it out of the way first: the 5400 RPM hard drive is slow, but you have to expect that (you can't buy a laptop that explicitly says it has a 5400 RPM hard drive and complain that it's slow). The track pad's tap (as opposed to press/click) responsiveness isn't quite what I'd expect. I find myself having to tap fairly hard to get a left click or a double click to register. The aluminum lid quickly becomes covered in fingerprints (although a microfiber cloth was provided to clean this). The inner body and inner lid are covered with stickers (not just the tradition "Intel Inside" or "Powered by nVidia" stickers, those sales-y stickers you find on floor models at retail stores). The frivolous "sub-woofer" improves the quality of the audio so little it's not worth it considering you wouldn't plug it in which it's on you lap (the cable for it is only about a foot long).

Other Thoughts: Fantastic buy; the pros heavily outweigh the cons considering I can upgrade the hard disc if I'd like to. Stylish and powerful, this laptop is everything you would want in what I would call a modest gaming machine. For a non-gaming user, this is everything you need and more.

4 out of 5 eggs Great but fits weird 02/20/2014

This review is from: ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller

Pros: A lot of slots to hook up fans, looks really nice, knobs are firm in contrast to other reviews, LEDs are perfectly bright.

Cons: It doesn't sit tight in my case. The LEDs, although perfectly bright, are not very helpful. Blue until it is turned past 80% or so, then red. I think I know when I turn it that far myself. Also, the front of this looks super nice, except th big ZALMAN block text. Look at the pictures and you'll see what I mean.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money; if you need a fan controller get this one. -1 egg for not fitting in my case.

Rosewill LINE-M - Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case -  Dual USB 3.0 Ports, Dual Fans Included, Supports Up to Four (4) Fans and Up to 12.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small, but space efficient. USB 3.0 on front panel. Fits multiple motherboard sizes. Very open design with just enough fan space (2 side, one rear, one front). Nice shape and body design.

Cons: Toolless design pieces could have been a little better. Not the best, but not the worst.
