Pros: Looked decent enough and worked fine for 1 week
Cons: Tested it briefly at first but didn't get to use the machine it was for until I had it for two weeks. Then, After 1 week, stopped giving battery life % info. Unfortunate but didn't mind it too much, after 2 more weeks, it stopped working altogether. AND since it was barely past the 30-day warranty, I had to swallow the 45 bucks. Probably the cheapest thing I've ever bought off here, but I am reconsidering my affinity for newegg because of this issue.
Other Thoughts: Don't wait to put your orders to the test no matter how pleasant your previous NewEgg experiences have been, they will leave you out to dry even on dud products if they can.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and comes with windows7. Can keep up with most tasks in photoshop, gets a little sluggish painting with hundreds of layers, though. Handles middle to high-res video (720p and some 1080p) using VLC player. Runs Maya surprisingly well if your scene is simple.. can't do full scenes or particle simulations well.
Cons: Not 64bit, and has serious display issues including but not limited to an intermittent screen flash that occurs every 10 seconds. Very not good and worse of all carries over to external monitors and eludes everything I've tried to fix it. It cannot handle sculpting apps like ZBrush, and can't even install Mudbox, and gives me issues trying to implement operations that use OpenGL--get it set up, a few weeks go by and it will suddenly require a resetup for display drivers to make OpenGL functions work again.
Other Thoughts: Best used as a cheap television and movie hub, very good battery life, runs extra monitors well (except for the flashing problem mine has that I mention in cons)..
That flickering screen problem happens to people often enough, though, people on youtube complaining about it as well.. Mine started just after any hope of getting it covered like the defect it is. Doesn't seem like a hardware glitch, though, so perhaps a solution is still out there.
