This review is from: HP Elite 8000 [Microsoft Authorized Recertified] Small Form Factor Desktop PC + Monitor Bundle with Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz, 4GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, DVDROM, Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit, 22" HP ZR22W Wide
Pros: I was skeptical, but had a customer on a tony budget. I was surprised how clean it was inside and out.
-Easy Windows install and registration
-Monitor is very nice
Cons: Still gets 5 eggs because they had to go cheap in some places for the price to be this low.
-Keyboard and mouse are VERY cheaply made, but they work 100%
Other Thoughts: If you have someone that needs a very cut and dry, but fast, machine. This is the one to go for!
I had a spare Displayport cord around, and it did make the monitor put out a better image. The Windows image installs quickly (5-10 min) and you're in windows. There are no added features (such as games and other programs.
I added Avast Free and had windows install the addition features to get the games and a few other services on it.
Pros: -Very thin
-EXCELLENT Battery Life (5-6 hrs)
-Good FPS in Wow, LoL, and Smite
-Good USB placement
-Solid keyboard frame
Cons: -Recommended 8GB RAM for solid gaming
-Top of the lid shell is a little flimsy, scared i might put a little too much pressure and break the screen while carrying it.
-battery and hard drive Slightly annoying to get to
Other Thoughts: First thing you must know, This is a MACBOOK design clone. I see a lot of people complaining about this. The bottom panel is a 1 piece design (Besides the memory door). The battery and hard drive are under the plate. It is VERY easy to take off, its not clipped in, you just remove the screws and it lifts right off. I replaced the RAM with 8GB for a little more performance in gaming, Windows 8 is running solid, and i also put a SSD in as a replacement because i travel a lot and like less moving parts.
I have played some mid level games on this with max settings and get max frames. It gets a little warm so i have a basic Zalman cooler on it for when i do game.
Without gaming I can easily get 5-6 hours of wireless internet browsing and MS Office use, with 75% screen brightness.
OVERALL i love this, it was perfect for the price.
This review is from: GIGABYTE M7700 GM-M7700 Noble Black Tilt Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser 1600 dpi Mouse
Pros: -fits okay in my large hands
-tracks very well on a Razer mobile mouse pad
-USB receiver storage in mouse is solid
Cons: -runs out of batteries VERY fast
-no automatic turn off when not in use, must use switch
Other Thoughts: Overall i do like this mouse, it works when im not at home for gaming. I really wish there was a simple auto shutoff feature, even my $6 Gear Head mouse from wal mart does this. If i use this mouse at work, it maybe lasts a week or 2 before i have to replace the batteries. My $6 mouse will last me 2 months at least, with 8 hours a day usage.READ FULL REVIEW
