ASUS C100PA-DB01 Chromebook Rockchip 3288-C Quad-Core 1.80 GHz 2 GB Memory 16 GB eMMC SSD 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Asus C100PADB02 flip chrome book review .....
This is a good looking , well built chrome book. It looks more expensive than it costs. It boots in less than 10 seconds from being powered off. It shuts down in about 1 second. I like the 10 inch
screen size for portability sake. It loads web pages quickly. I use it to watch NFL football online at the maximum bandwidth 4500 Kbps that the site allows and it works fine. If it can run at that bandwidth, without stuttering , it can basically handle any web streaming you will need. It has the Rockchip 1.8 Ghz quad core processor which means it is about 10 to 15 percent slower in performance than the Intel Celeron dual core 2.0 GHZ cpu and the Tegra K1 2.1 GHZ quad core cpu, but that means the battery life is about 10 to 12 hours due to the processor's lower power requirements. The other two have about 7 to 8 hours of battery life. It converts to tablet mode and lays flat. Another review said it is slow, but I have no clue what they are talking about, unless they have a huge number of webpages open or they are connected to a poor internet source. Also remember, it has 2 gig of ram , so most computers will slow down if too many web pages are open with that amount of memory. I have zero concerns with the speed of it. I was amazed the first time I used a chrome book at their speed. That speed is basically because it is a Linux operating system with a Windows look to it . However, if you want a little more speed. The Celeron and Tegra K1 cpu based chrome books are faster but have shorter battery life. I would definitely purchase it again.

Cons: The slowest of the 4 main processors types used in chrome books. So choose 15 percent more speed or 3 to 4 more hours of battery life.

Other Thoughts: One person gave it a negative review because it seemed to have "ghost" keypad presses". That is due to the default mode on the keypad being in "activate if you hover over an icon for 2 seconds mode". I returned one because I thought it was defective, as in it seemed like the left keypad button was always active. If you do not deactivate this mode, it will "click" to open or close tabs or icons that you do not want it to activate or close.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price vs performance it is just as good a a Intel dollar for dollar.

Cons: Many AMD 6 and even 8 core cpu's can be beat in performance by a 4 core Intel (without hyperthreading) . That speaks poorly for AMD's developement. AMD does give you what you pay for in price vs performance for that price.

Other Thoughts: Most people compare a 4 core cpu to a 4 core cpu. But the real comparision is price to price. Yes , a 4 core Intel is better than a 6 core AMD. But, price vs price , a 200 dollar AMD is about equal to a 200 dollar Intel. A 330 dollar 4 core intel performs as well as a a 330 dollar AMD setup (169 dollar AMD 6 core cpu plus a 170 dollar AMD motherboard).

Intel 530 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast and rock solid reliable. I own 6 Intel SSD's. None have failed in several years of usage.

Cons: Not as fast as 700 series SSD's.

Correction, Read speed 500
MBps and Write speed 250 MBps attached to 6Mb/s interface.

Other Thoughts: Do your research. Intel is the most reliable drive you can buy. As well priced as it is, why get a cheap SSD that has poor quality ?
