Pros: Cables are more than long enough to be snaked around in my Cooler Master HAF 912 case. It is extremely quiet and experienced no problems with this power supply until it went out (below). Corsair customer supply was excellent in replacing the unit.
Cons: I have my case sitting on a hardwood floor and it would suddenly just drop all power to my PC. Bought it on 05/07/2012 and it went completely dead on 12/21/2012.
The amount of cables are plentiful to the point where they are hard to manage if you don't have the right case.
Other Thoughts: Considering it was the holiday season, I had to wait a few weeks to receive my RMA'ed unit. When I did, it was a brand new, in the package, identical power supply. No questions asked.
In hindsight I would have probably spent the extra bucks to go with their 750w modular power supply. If you have the Cooler Master HAF 912, you'll have to spend a little more time to get those extra cables hidden/out of the way of airflow.
Pros: Lightweight and it's keyboard has a great feel. No missing pixels from the screen. The charger is a decent length.
Overall a good purchase coming from a 1.5ghz single-core Dell laptop from a few years ago.
Cons: Seems a little flimsy, so I don't ever plan on dropping this IdeaPad. I would recommend buying a ~$30 carrying case if you are taking this to work/class.
Other Thoughts: While I did not purchase this for gaming, it runs older games such as Team Fortress 2 and Day of Defeat: Source. I have not yet tested Dota 2 or League of Legends.
I probably would have skipped out on the Windows 8 and stayed with Windows 7. It also has the basic bloatware but only took a few minutes to uninstall.

Pros: Windows 7 Professional automatically installed a network driver for the TRENDnet NIC. Couldn't get any simpler than that.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
