ThinkPad X1 (20GG001VUS) 2-in-1 Laptop Intel Core M5 6Y57 (1.10 GHz) 4 GB Memory 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 515 12
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: + Great price, and Lenovo had this on backorder at the time. Got me out of a pinch!
+ Comes with keyboard! It's backlit (easily switched off), and removes very quickly via magnets. There is a small snap in for holding your active pen to the keyboard too.
+ Keyboard is very thin like a folio, but not flimsy like others I've used in the past, touchpad works perfectly.
+ Comes with Active Stylus and battery, seems to work well.
+ Charger input is using the oval USB C, so you don't have to fiddle with the orientation to plug it in.
+ screen looks great

Cons: - The active pen does use AAAA batteries. They can be a bit of a pain to find locally. I had a Dell Venue Pro active pen that used this battery type, and it only lasted 1 month. I'll see how Lenovo does...

Other Thoughts: I like that there are modules you can plug in. So there's a projector and larger battery available. Very cool and useful idea for modularity.

ECS A75F-M2 FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * More features than most at this size, at a lower price
* Amazingly stable architecture
* No heat issues, with nothing but an APU stock fan!
* ECS has been a pleasant surprise

Cons: I haven't stressed my sub-500 dollar machine enough to matter. So I really can't say anything bad about it.

Other Thoughts: This is perfect for an HTPC setup. I've been very satisfied with the USB 3.0 performance, the chipset stability, the lack of heat produced (speaks well of chip efficiency!), and the motherboard as a whole. I use Auto on about everything but the RAM timings, and it just works great. I spend more time helping my wife run netflix on her Tablet then working on this motherboard.

SILVERSTONE ST45SF 450W SFX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Stable power provided to my computer, no hiccups on my 3870K-A8 mini atx HTPC, even gaming on the big screen
* Tiny as can be
* Provides a bracket for a standard ATX slot to be filled, much appreciated!

Cons: Has yet to wake me up with the scent of bacon!

Other Thoughts: I cannot believe how tiny this thing is. The size allowed for a much needed gaps that really helped with the airflow in my small HTPC Case.
My HTPC basically runs 24/7, and it's been going strong for nearly a year now. I'll run 720p MKV files off the USB 3 drives, and stream from netflix constantly. No issues ever. I haven't even bothered removing dust from it ever. It's a strong contender.
