Pros: Love the brushed metal look and color, matte mouse pad texture (I can't stand the glossy ones), touch button volume/heat dissipation controls, storage space, 4 USB ports (including two 3.0 ports), SD card reader, bright display, power brick is relatively small, expandable memory,
Cons: Had to uninstall a few extras I didnt want, but kept quite a few that seem pretty useful, I wish the mouse buttons were separate from the rest of the touch pad, and wish the keyboard was backlit, wish the hard drive was faster -- limits the transfer speed of the USB3 ports,
Other Thoughts: Having only had it for less than a week so far, I haven't had the chance to put it through the wringer as far as running multiple Adobe programs at once, but I have loaded some MMOs to it and it runs fine (obviously not maxing out the settings but not minimal either). The battery life seems fine so far; it's not as long as my husband's ASUS (which is a smaller laptop though) but definitely longer than a previous work laptop (17" with comparable hardware).
Overall, it feels like a well-rounded sturdy machine and for the price I'm really happy with it.
This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 500GB USB 3.0 Ultra-Portable Hard Drive (Black)
Pros: Plug and play on Windows, works on Mac with included (I want to say Paragon? - can't remember) software, slim and lightweight, USB 3.0/2.0 capable, runs quiet and doesn't get hot.
Cons: Only con I can think of is the cable, it's a little short and I'm not sure how common the type of plug for the port going into the hard drive is or if it's a special order kind of thing when it comes time to replace it.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately I'm stuck on a Mac at work, and my rig at home is a Windows PC, so I needed storage that worked on both systems for when I work from home. I also deal with a lot of large files (graphic designer) so I preferred to avoid the file transfer size limit with FAT32. This was exactly what I was looking for and can't beat the price point.READ FULL REVIEW
