This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
Pros: Easy breezy installation.
Strong signal due to the small but powerful external antenna.
Has an adapter / bracket for Small Case factor
Antenna comes with a double face tape to "glue" it to the desk OR a nice small needle/pin type to push it into drywall and hang it in any position.
Cons: It's not free.
Wish it would have 3 antennas but even with 2 works fine.
Other Thoughts: Great card for wireless desktop network cardREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000
Pros: Bluetrack works on thick carpet or countertop and it is awesome.
Spill proof keyboard.
Nice key feeling and feedback.
Not completely silent (both mouse and keyboard -I mean when you click or press keys) but also not noisy either.
Wireless works well at 30 feet away from PC (clear path)
Batteries last long (I have purchased this model about 2 years ago)
If you have any problems , Microsoft customer service is easy to reach and the support is great (also USA based)
Cons: Not iluminated
Other Thoughts: Great wireless mouse + WIRELESS keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 4th Gen Cpu, other than that...nothing stands out.
DVD-RW is part of the laptop.
Touch screen is nice.
Touch pad works well
Keyboard has decent feedback and works well.
Seems well built as there are no bending material spots and the hinges feel solid. Time will tell if it will resist as Dell is advertising.
Hdmi works well audio and video.
Laptop is cooler that others (not come completely cold) because of the low speed CPU.
Cons: The Webcam is NOT HD and is NOT a wide screen one.
Monitor is not great (low resolution).
No illuminated keyboard.
It is a magnet for skin grease and fingerprints.
No spill proof keyboard.
Other Thoughts: DELL included a nice backup and recovery disk creation utility but if you want the nice backup features you have to pay......buuuuuuuuu
Pay attention !!!! When installing Windows 8.1 update make sure first you made your recovery disks and then install all (and I really mean all the updates that can be installed from Windows Update) + update all the drivers to the latest versions possible and only then install the 8.1 update. There are many horror stories on the internet from people that updated to 8.1 and had all kind of issues. Some people installed 8.1 immediately after opening the laptop/desktop and had all kind of errors.
I'll follow up with an update in couple of mont
