Pros: Thin, Powerful, Great design. I use this as a class and work computer. the i5 is great at blasting through statistical packages. Plays games surprisingly well. I played portal and shogun 2 for a little bit, and both played fine on middle of the road meetings.
Cons: Lots of bloatware!!! Make sure to remove it! The Power 4 Hybrid program really throttles back this computer. I just did a clean install of windows from a USB, alot faster at removing everything. Let windows control the power settings.
Other Thoughts: Keyboard and Trackpad (get the latest drivers) take some getting used too. Make sure to optimize the trackpad by turning off "Smart Detector". It is supposed to prevent you from hitting the mouse while typing, but there is too long of a delay after typing and this causes the mouse to freeze a moment too long. This gets annoying until it is turned off.
Also instant on is interesting. It claims to bring the computer back on in 2 seconds. It does this whether or not it is on. It seems to me instant on just sets everything to sleep mode.
Pros: Great picture. great response time. little adjustment needed
Cons: speakers are bad. the stand gets scratches very easy.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Bought this from another store when it was on sale for $99 . If i don't overclock my cpu it keeps things ice cold.....but of course i do. My i7-2600k is overclocked to 4.8ghz and on idle it is about 29 degrees. Under a full load of video encoding it only gets to about 56 degrees. With my old Zalman cooler i could not overclock past 4.4 and i was getting much high temps.
Cons: The instructions are horrible. How about some words and not pictures drawn by a 5 years old.
Other Thoughts: It is pretty big, but i have a corsair case and it fits perfect. just check and make sure yours is big enough.READ FULL REVIEW
