This review is from: Acer TimelineU M5-481TG-6814 14" Ultrabook
Pros: Ability to game on an ultrabook!
Sturdy solid feel!
Great sound compared to my Old Asus RoG .
Good screen size for mobile working/gaming
Cons: 4GB of ram bleh!
A higher screen resolution would have been nice.
The laptop is not the easiest to upgrade ( but its not the hardest either)
Other Thoughts: I stuck in an 8GB patriot 12800 1.35v ram stick that I bought here on new egg. If you upgrade your RAM and want to keep your intel rapid start working you will have to change your hibernation partition to the total amount of your RAM ( in my case I changed mine to 10 ( 8gb added and 2 gb soldered on board)).
I also added in a Samsung 840 250GB hard drive. I boot up in about 6 seconds now.
If you plan on upgrading there's a great thread over at notebookreview. Just do a google search "Acer M5 notebookreview" and you'll find the thread.
I haven't gamed on this thing yet... But so far I'm happy with my purchase.

I've only had it in there for a day, but I'll update if I have any issues.
Cons: Would be nice to get this a little cheaper... But I guess I always want to pay less for good stuff. :)
Other Thoughts: So far so good... My Acer M5 recognized this stick with an additional 2gb of on oars ram for a total of 10GB on my ultrabook. It's great!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Great SSD , easy to use after you get all the needed tools(cable software etc..).
Fast! I am expecting some battery life increased ... But haven't confirmed yet
Cons: Again I'm rating the entire package not just the SSD!
The only negatives I have are that the package does not come with the required cable to perform migration. Having to go buy the cable added an extra $15 to the final price of the ssd. The SSD came with a CD that has the manuals and the Samsung Magician software. The software have me an error every time I tried to install it. This was a little Annoying. I had to go to SAmsung website and download the Samsung Migration tool (not the Samsung magician software!). This should have came on the cd , instead I had to waste some time researching the software needed and were to download it.
Other Thoughts: I have had this installed in my Acer M5 for a day now. It has greatly improved my boot times. I fully load and boot in about 6-7 seconds. I will come back and add more info if I get any negative's in the future.
The only negatives had to do with the items not included in the package. I might just be asking for to much *shrug* . The lack of all the package contents knocked this down to 4 eggs for me.
Overall I'm happy with my purchase though. I went from a WD Scorpio 5400 500gb to this. This blows the HDD away :)
