Acer Laptop Aspire E1 E1-731-4699 Intel Pentium 2020M (2.40 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 17.3

Pros: Construction seems solid. Elegant look.

Cons: SLOOOOOOOW. I purchased this for use at a client's office (word processing and internet browsing). Out of the box it is ridiculously slow. After setup and booting into windows my first task was to install chrome. It took 2 minutes from the time I clicked internet explorer for the window to load and be ready for input. It took several minutes more to actually navigate to the page and start the download (my internet connection is fine, it was just the laptop loading). When I tried to update windows, the machine froze 2/3 of the way through installing updates, I gave it 4 hours just to be sure..

Maybe I'm spoiled from using a workhorse desktop and I'm out of touch with capabilities of economy machines, but the freezing seems to suggest a defect.

Other Thoughts: I'm hoping that this sluggishness is just due to 1st time use/not having anything cached, and that finishing updates and optimization will resolve some of the issues. Otherwise I'll be returning this machine.

Pros: Cool looking. Nice features. Price. Also, I have one of those laptops where the USB ports are adjacent to the audio ports. This leads to unwanted coupling between any connected hardware. Usually this results in some kind of noise being heard on my external speakers, but this mouse runs surprisingly clean. The only audible noise occurs when the red ambient LED is on; you can hear the PWM driver through the speaker. But I just leave it on the green light, so no problems there.

Cons: Not the most ergonomic, but I could tell that from the pictures.

2 out of 5 eggs Faulty caps on OEM board 01/16/2014

This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Like the board layout. Had everything I needed at a great price.

Cons: I bought an OEM board, so I can't be sure who's at fault... But, there was a faulty capacitor in the DIMM power circuit which caused a short to the base of a switching transistor connected to one of the voltage regulators. The result was smoke as soon as the power was turned on. Probably just a bad component, and not any fault of ASUS (I give them 3eggs.) However, newegg claims that they test the functionality of all OEM parts before re-shipping. This is clearly not the case (they didn't even catch the bent pins on the CPU socket.) 1 egg for newegg.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for I guess... This'll probably be the last time I buy any OEM boards. Too much to fail, not worth the risk of the delays.
