ThinkPad Edge E430 (627156U) Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M(2.50GHz) 14
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is in response to commenter Brett. You CAN swap the Fn and CTRL keys if you want. This is done from "ThinkPad Setup" by pressing F1 on boot. Complete instructions on the Lenovo community board are here:

Cons: No cons

BFG Tech XLR8 GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 BFGE84512GS64E 512MB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap and works great with a multi-monitor setup.

Cons: That I didn't buy one sooner. 8400 GS cards are decent, reliable and work in Windows 7 easily as long as you download the latest nVidia driver set.

Other Thoughts: The image seen here isn't the card you get. The card you get looks identical but only has a heatsink with no fan by design, and that's GREAT because it's one less thing to break. That's a bonus as far as I'm concerned.

BFG Tech GeForce 210 DirectX 10.1 BFGE210512D2E 512MB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap. Runs everything fine. Not a bad card, but not a good card either. Adequate at best.

Cons: With multiple monitors enabled, your screens will flicker in Windows 7. You can mostly get rid of it by using a 'Basic' or 'Classic' theme, but then it looks like you're running a PC from 1999. Doesn't matter if you upgrade to the latest nVidia drivers, you'll always get the flicker when Aero Glass is turned on.

Other Thoughts: Buy it only if for somebody else that does not use multiple monitors. If the card if for you, spend the extra 5 to 10 bucks for something better. You won't be sorry. Even the next BFG card up from this one is much better - an NO FLICKERING.
