This review is from: Swissgear SYNERGY 16" GA-7305-14F00 Laptop Computer Backpack
Pros: Lots of protective padding for the Laptop and the interior fabric [Silver] makes it very easy to "see" what is in the pack. So many backpack linings are completely black making it very difficult to see the contents. This item is a real Winner. My favorite pack in 40+years of back packing!!!
Cons: Not available at gas stations, supper markets or drug stores....
Other Thoughts: Construction is excellent. I wish i bought this long ago: North Face like quality!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nebo 5581 Redline Tactical LED Flashlight - 220 Lumens and SOS mode
Pros: Remarkable build quality and includes a "better mousetrap" feature: a magnetized base! If you have a metallic surface opposite your viewing area, your hands (and mouth...) are
The brightness and uniformity of the beam pattern impresses even the most demanding light-a-holic (me...) I have many LED headlights from Petzl, Coast, and Niterider and handhelds as well.
This 220 Lumen rating seems very realistic and usually the equivalent cost per lumen is many times greater than the Redline. The front of the light is clearly sharp edged for self defense if ned in an emergency
Cons: The on/off button is flush with the magnetic ring base and is difficult to depress with the thumb but once on it's just a light touch to toggle with either index finger or thumb.
Other Thoughts: This is the light Jason Bourne would have in his glovebox. Buy one. Heck, buy two!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Replaced 4GB OEM memory on my 11/2009 MacBook Pro because Safari was using up to 2GB from Youtube streams and nearly maxed out the rest with iTunes , mail or iPhoto running.
Very impressive improvement as I also use a 30" Dell display and there used to be some stuttering playing podcasts in the full 4MB display (2560 X 1600) along with the 1440 X 900 from the MBP.
iPhoto now snaps the over 4,000 pictures from the library immediately for scrolling display making finding any thumbnails a breeze. Every program opens faster and it's easier to navigate between open applications like Keynote, iMovie, Pages etc. Mostly, the swap files: Page In's and Page Outs have less work especially since the 250 GB drive is full and begs to be upgraded with the 500 GB Seagate Momentus XT waiting to be installed.
Cons: No trade in program for the OEM sticks... ;)
Other Thoughts: Newegg shipped free of charge and used DHL/USPS so I got it within 3-days on Saturday! At the current 64.95 this is a terrific cost to benefit ratio.
I haven't booted into Windows 7 on the Bootcamp partition yet which was another reason to upgrade so Office 2010 Pro would hopefully improve. The real surprise was seeing "Disc Inventory X" (a graphically intensive display of all content on the hard drive) load significantly quicker like 7-minutes vs. 15-plus.
