Pros: Excellent laptop for the price, the core i3 and Radeon 5650 can play games like Starcraft 2 at 30fps. The laptop itself looks great, and its not very heavy.
Cons: Battery life is short, be prepared to bring your charging cable places. There was also quite a bit of bloatware, it wasn't too hard to remove though.
Other Thoughts: $580 on Black Friday :DREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech S-220 17 Watts 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System
Pros: The sound quality is great. Nice bass and clear mid to low ranges.
Cons: For some reason, i get static on these speakers directly proportional to the internet usage. If I am downloading a file, they go crazy with static.READ FULL REVIEW
This card is roughly 2x as good as my old 8800GT. Runs Crysis Warhead at 1080p(2xAA) on very high setting while achieving 30fps. OC'd to 800/1600/2000, everything is stable but I haven't tried to go higher.
Coming from an 8800GT, this is card is unbelievable. At 60% fan speed, I have to strain to hear this card over the case fans. Fan is set up to a 1:1 ratio with temperature, so 50C=50% fan speed. This results in 65C maximum in MSI Kombustor, and around 55C in most games. A huge improvement from the 75C+ temps I would get with my 8800GT.
Cons: Honestly, the only thing I can think of is the cooler venting hot air back into the case. Everything else is a complete improvement over my 8800GT.
Other Thoughts: This card destroys the GTX465 and pretty much puts the 5830 out of the game. I have an Antec 900, so I had to take card length into consideration *cough5830cough*. It's even shorter than my 8800GT at roughly 9". I'm so glad I waited for this card instead of going for a 5830.
