Pros: Fast Boot takes about 3 to 4 seconds from the moment I push On button. I use Plextor M5P for booting. Set OC to auto and I get 4 Ghz (can go a lot more, but no need) keeping the CPU temp. in 50 Cel or less. Updating the BIOS specially the 2.10 by Instant Flash was very easy and rewarded. No issues of incompatibility with any of the other hardware that I installed in the motherboard.
Cons: I just did put together this motherboard yesterday, it came with BIOS 1.3 and it was crashing often, updated to 1.4 and it was even worst. Luckily today was the release of 2.10 (thanks Asrock) and it works perfect (I went to pretty much everything in the BIOS, and even left the computer in BIOS for a couple of hours and no issues). The WiFi antennas are a little bit weak, don't be too far from the router.
Other Thoughts: The crashing or freezing was only in the BIOS, it never affect the OS at all. I'm using WIN 8 Pro.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got it for less than 300 bucks on sale, expend about 140 bucks extra between 120 GB SSD and 8 GB memory and as a result the performance is outstanding. It even doesn't look cheap.
Cons: can't win the lottery.
Other Thoughts: If you need a good laptop for travel but with more power than a tablet, don't waist your time and click the Add to Cart now before they are gonne.READ FULL REVIEW
