ASUS Laptop A55VD-NS51 Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60 GHz) 6 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable
Fast, I can have a ton of applications open at the same time without slowing it down.
Love the design, touch pad keeps very cool.

Good for Work, School, and it can even play some modern games on medium settings. I was able to get it to play Wolfenstein: The new order on low at ~40fps, Mortal Kombat 9 at ~40fps-~50fps, and payday 2 around ~20fps. Not perfect for gaming, but it's a good on-the-go alternative to my gaming PC in case I'm stuck somewhere and bored.

Cons: I've owned this laptop for over a year, haven't really found any cons.

Couple little things that bug me are that the ESC key is super close to the power button, so I've accidentally over-reached a few times and put my laptop to sleep.

BIOSTAR TZ77A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Comes with all inputs I need, all PCI types, HDMI, USB 3.0 etc.

Everything is clearly labeled on the board, instructions are clear.

Games are running great!

Cons: None as far as I can tell.

ARCTIC Alpine 11 Plus CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Keeps my CPU below 50C

Cons: Comes with thermal paste already applied ... I had to take time to clean it off, and almost ruined my motherboard! I placed it on the CPU mount to see if it was going to fit - thankfully I had the cover down!! I set it on the table and noticed the paste mark after I picked it back up.

Not worth knocking an egg off, just annoying.

Other Thoughts: I bought this thinking it would hold me over until I bought a more expensive CPU fan. But this actually does the job. I don't plan on buying another fan. Keeps my i7 below 50C while gaming.
