HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn Workgroup Up to 35 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seems to print the 1st page very quickly and all pages after that. Tray for odd types of papers included and it duplexes well. E-Printing works great.

Cons: HP Drivers are too big, go to the HP site and download the basic drivers and skip most of the bloat they ship with these things.

Other Thoughts: We haven't had any issues printing pdf files either. They seem to print perfectly. I have in the past had issues with Acrobat crashing Windows print spooler though, only on pdf files. It was computer related though, not even a printer issue.

DELL Inspiron iM101z-3980BK Notebook Intel Core i3 330UM (1.20GHz) 2GB Memory 250GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 11.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Super nice for the cost. Upgrade-able ram and HD, very good low price ultra book with a few tweaks.

Cons: No Bluetooth and no USB 3.0, I also prefer a physical volume button but you never see those anymore.

Other Thoughts: I've owned one of the Atom powered netbooks and found them mostly useless, I get more use out of my Android tablet than that but I still prefer a laptop so for the price I gave this Dell a shot and so far It's a great deal. I upped the ram to 4gb and just now swapped out the HDD with SDD and increased the battery life by an estimated hour. From 5hrs to 6hrs which ain't bad.
It now wakes up from sleep in an instant and boots up in a 3rd of the time it did with the HDD.
I didn't want to spend a fortune on an Ultra Book so I got this system and with a few tweaks it's exactly what I wanted for a fraction of the cost. Unlike a netbook this system actually has the power to run everyday programs with power to spare.
It was a breeze to open up and swap out the drive too, something near impossible on my old netbook.
I highly recommend this system if a small, energy efficient powerful system is what you're looking for.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Just got the drive in today and had it installed, mirrored and running in less than an hour. Great included kit for data transfer worked as advertised. Only real issue was the computer I intended to use this drive in didn't have an optical drive so I had to use a second PC to copy all of the files from the image software to a usb drive and run it from there. I also learned you need to run the image program as admin or else I got write errors making a boot drive. Once I got past that hurdle is was as easy as any hdd to mirror and set up.

Cons: Not free, Windows 7 takes up a lot of it

Other Thoughts: My first experience with an SSD so we'll see how well it holds up in time. I swapped out the HDD from the Dell iM101z I got here a couple weeks ago and the swap couldn't have been simpler. I ended up with a sweet little ultrabook for not much cash. Wake up and boot times are exactly what I had hoped for and the included data swap cable is very nice addition to the whole deal. I can use the HDD I pulled out with the data cable as an external HD.
Overall I highly recommend it. It was painless.
