ASUS Laptop D550MAV-DB01(S) Intel Celeron N2840 (2.16 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's an entry level desktop. Does what it's supposed to for not a lot of money. Windows 8.1. 4 gb's ram. 15" screen, cd rom drive, 500gb HD

Cons: It has an entry level Atom cpu @ 2.16. 64 bit OS, i'de rather see 32 bit as I feel 32 is more responsive.

Other Thoughts: I see similar reviews for pretty much the same laptop, take them w a grain of salt. MOST people reviewing products are novices at best that don't know how to use Windows 8 or slim down some of the software. If you want windows 7 then install start8 or a similar after market start button. DO NOT USE Startisback! You will get the black screen of death. I got my laptop as a reduced open box item. If your pressed for cash then try a HP Stream 13 or something.

3 out of 5 eggs Read ONLY - not a burner 05/04/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model SH-118CB/BEBE

Pros: It reads fine

Cons: This only reads, if your looking for Samsung brand here's one to consider for both reading and burning

Other Thoughts: I did not know that CD manufacturers still made read only. I went to burn some data and got no compatible device. It's been 10 yrs since I saw a DVD rom. I guess I should have read better.

ASUS A78M-E FM2+ AMD A78 (Bolton D3) 6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), yellow USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: USB 3.0, not real complicated.

Cons: No bios update from OS. I loaded the flash program and new version and flashed w pen drive, forget doing it in DOS. It loaded windows 8.1 no issues but I felt it lagged a little bit. Just for ha ha's I loaded Win 7 Pro and it was much more responsive. I really like Windows 8 but 7 ran so much better I'm keeping it. I have 2 other FM2 boards (MSI & GB) and I could deal with that trade off in performance 8. I did not try it on an SSD.

Other Thoughts: I'm a nit picker, the board seems stable to me. I do like MSI's bios one touch OC and Gigabytes OC software better but this is designed for desktop apps I think more so than OCing. I don't recall XMP options in the bios either.
