ASUS Laptop S550CA-SS51T Intel Core i5 3317U (1.70 GHz) 6 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 24 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Two HDD's
USB 3.0, HDMI and 10-Key NumPad
Low Price
Well built
Small AC Adapter and low overall weight
12 second boot up time when OS installed on SSD

Cons: Website does not provide any drivers if you want to downgrade from Win 8/8.1 to Win 7
Fingerprint magnet
No room to add memory all slots are full
No expansion card slot
Ethernet slot is a slim port which makes it slightly difficult to plug-in/unplug

Other Thoughts: All in all the laptop is built well for a good price (even at full price) and provides all the feature a good portable laptop needs. I would definitely suggest getting this for school and just about everything else short of high end gaming, a/v editing, etc
If you downgrade to Win 7 simply look up the Hardware ID for each device in your search engine to figure what drivers you are missing.
If you make a custom slimmed down version of Win 7 you can fit it along with Office and an Antivirus on the SSD. Take out hibernation and page file from the SSD to save space.

5 out of 5 eggs It's a thumbdrive buy it... 10/31/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-16GB

Pros: It's a thumbdrive covered in works good and it's cheap. 10 years ago we paid 200$ for 1GB the size of slices of bread and about 2.5lbs, today 20$ for 16gb and it weighs 3 oz...we got it made now :)

Cons: Nobody should have issues with thumb drives...

Vantec NexStar CX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Dropped a 300gb sata laptop hdd in it. It does what it's supposed to. Have not had any issues so far though. The price is unbeatable

Cons: It gets a bit hot after a while, this thing was not exactly meant for breathing...mainly absorption of heat.
