Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59359560) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI 2GB 15.6

Pros: Fast for a notebook.

Cons: Extremely huge. Be forewarned, it's as thick as notebooks were in the 90s, and almost as wide as your regular widescreen monitor. So that makes it a hefty piece of hardware to just carry around. Note, newegg does not accept returns on these. We looked inside the box, decided it was too big to use, but then were out of luck when trying to exchange it for a smaller model. BTW, this is probably the most hilarious part of the description "Windows® 8 has been reimagined to be all about you. Put what matters most right on your Start screen, and get instant access to your people, apps, and stuff, so you can spend less time searching and more time Doing." Riiiight. This has to be the most ironic statement Microsoft has released.

So to summarize cons:

1. Too Big
2. Too Heavy
3. Has Windows 8
4. No returns/exchanges on Newegg (something they omit mentioning)

Crucial M4 CT512M4SSD2BAA 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good drive, but failed after 2 weeks. 12/31/2012

This review is from: Crucial M4 CT512M4SSD2BAA 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was fast, good capacity for SSD. Didn't really expect to have any issues with it, it worked fine for a while, then suddenly died after 2 weeks of use. No boot device found. Checked BIOS, nothing detected under SATA. Tried different ports, tried different computers, nothing, it's just gone.

Cons: died after 2 weeks

Other Thoughts: actually, probably more like after 10 days.

MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr 4GD5/OC GeForce GTX 680 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - looked promising

Cons: - amateur heat sink design that will not let you use 3-way sli bridges

Other Thoughts: MSI engineers must have never heard of SLI, otherwise I can't imagine how in the world this card was released for sale. The 3 way SLI bridges DO NOT FIT ON THIS CARD due to protruding heat sinks that block them. WOW. Will attempt to return all 3 cards.
