Rosewill RHRC-11002 - Windows 7 Certified MCE IR Remote Controller / Win 8 MCE + Small USB Dongle Type with Netflix CD

Pros: I bought this to use with my HTPC. I am currently running XBMC on top of Ubuntu Linux (XBMCbuntu 12.2). I simply plugged it in and it worked right away. It is completely hassle free and works as it is suppose to.

Cons: None thus far!

ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JH-DB71 Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 24GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 17.3

Pros: Once some tweaking is done, this laptop performs well. I replaced my desktop at home with this laptop and it can play all the same games at good frame rates. The built-in speakers are loud and sound great. It delivers more power and at a lower price than some of the other leading gaming laptop brands (Alienware, Razer, etc.)

Cons: This computer needed an overhaul on delivery. The hard drives were all partitioned extremely weird (4 total logical drives). It also came stock with Windows 8 which is (in my personal opinion) annoying. I ended up re-partitioning the hard drives and re-installing Windows 8 (no "official" Windows 7 drivers on the ASUS support site) and modified Win8 with Stardock's Start8 application to get my Win7 start bar back.

I don't expect to be able to play games on battery power for long, but I do have the expectation to be able to play games to some extent while on battery power. The GTX 780M cannot maintain load on battery power and many games are practically unplayable while on battery power. When the power adapter is connected, games run fine. Even though the scenario where I don't have power to plug into is unlikely, it is still disappointing that a gaming laptop cannot play games on battery.

Other Thoughts: This is a great desktop replacement and gaming laptop if you are technical and have the prowess to rebuild the partition tables/OS and everywhere you go has some place for you to plug in the power.

If you didn't actually buy this to play games, you will probably love it. If you did and you were hoping to be able to jump into your favorite game the moment you get it you will likely be disappointed.

Just make sure that this is the right choice for you before you check out.
