WD Blue 6TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD60EZRZ
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I added this to my server a month ago. No issues.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: May not be the fastest drive in the world, but all I wanted was more storage.

ASUS Laptop X Series X555UB-NH51 Intel Core i5 6200U (2.30 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Light, good image, decent speed.

Cons: Uses "Optimus" technology - includes both an Intel graphics chip and an NVIDIA graphics chip.

Support for the Intel chip begins in Linux kernel 4.3. You could enable preliminary support in older kernels, but this is not stable. I tried this on 4.2: the system hung after only a few minutes.

The NVIDIA proprietary driver can't seem to find screens. It's possible this could be resolved if one could disable the Intel chip in BIOS, but that isn't an option.

The Nouveau driver doesn't support the 940M yet. As a result, you only get an 800x600 unaccelerated XWindows session.

Other Thoughts: The Asus support web site is extremely slow.

Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lowest 80Plus power supply I could find. No point in getting a 500W supply for a 10W CPU. 3 HDDs, one SSD, and one J2900 CPU idling at 30W.

Cons: None.
