This review is from: IOGEAR GUN262WE 6 ft. White Smartlink USB Data Transfer Cable
Pros: This may be one of the quickest options to transfer you files. Plug it in to both computers, start up the program, and instantly copy files from one to the other... previously I had to copy twice, once onto an external hard drive and then back onto the other computer... this definitely saves time!
Cons: I used it to transfer from Windows 7 to 8.1
I am not sure how this would work on other operating systems...
Pros: Solid State Drive makes start up and any programs you install on it work super fast!
I use this for graphic design and I can have InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop open at the same time without issue which is great!
Runs runs much cooler than my previous Acer, though that had an AMD processor which was probably why it ran hot.
I like Windows 8.1, although it comes installed with Windows... all you need to do is install all the updates for Windows 8 and then you can upgrade to 8.1 for free in the Windows store. It definitely took some time to get used to though.
Pleasantly surprised by how quiet this computer is as well. I thought the fans might go crazy because of the processor/video card, but no difference in sound from my old laptop, it actually may be quieter!
Cons: Some people may not like the transition to Windows 8/8.1... though you will get used to it.
If you type a lot, you may want to disable the touch pad and use a mouse, because you can accidentally touch it since it's so large.
