Acer C720-2827 Chromebook Intel Celeron 2955U (1.40GHz) 2GB Memory 16GB SSD 11.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lightweight, instant on when you open the lid, long battery life of about 8 hours
I appreciate the higher speed "n" wireless adapter as it greatly increases the speed of browsing the web.

Cons: Slower than most laptops, small storage space, and not enough apps to replace a full laptop

Other Thoughts: It does what it is supposed to do...namely get you on the web to view web pages. However, do not think that you will be able to do all the things you might be able to do on a full laptop, because it will not do it.

Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996559
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fantastic compatibility. I have yet to find a DDR2 laptop these will not work in. For the dollars, the compatibility and memory size, adds quite a bit of "zing" for most laptop upgrades.

Cons: These could be a bit faster, but then would the compatibility be there?

Other Thoughts: We tend toward these memory modules when free shipping is offered because they just work.
There are cheaper modules but the few dollars you might save are not worth the headaches of incompatibility or random blue screens.

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-HD2 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This board had everything I needed and provides the quality and workmanship I require for my customers.
The HDMI works in concert with the VGA out and is great for dual displays. (Work on one and have TV on the other)

Cons: I wish they would give me a PATA header so I could attach some of my legacy hard drives. Oh well, I have a PATA PCI card for that purpose, it is just not as convenient.

Other Thoughts: All in all this is a perfect bpard for almost any build type.
If you do not care for the haswell video you can install your own video card. Very easy Bios, and the settings are all in front of you.
