This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Design is top notch, specs are incredible, more options then I will use(dehumidifier mode!:), software bundle looks awesome, havent installed yet, layout is very accessible, Docs are spot on.
Cons: None yet. My only fault is my own as I had intended on using a "old" DVD player that has the ATA interface only, which this and most MB's no longer support. It's an 8 dollar part, which I just ordered, but it sure is hard to install Window without it.
Other Thoughts: I expect to use this computer for almost 5 years as is . I3-3220/8GB pc-1600, 120gb ssd, 1GB pci-x 3.0 basic video.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Light, Fast and great price. We really didnt want a touch screen so this worked out great. An i5 with 6GB ram on Windows 7 64 bit is a great place to be for the next several years and perform very well.
Cons: Had a little trouble during setup, had to restart 3 times after waiting about an hour the first few times. No problems after that. SSD cache was only 8GB instead of 32GB, which is sufficient, but not what was advertised.
Other Thoughts: if you can get it for the right price, it is the best laptop for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well built, lots of space, bays and fan cutouts. No razor sharp edges. Love the top/front button access and how the cables are organized internally. Almost a completely tool-less case design, except for mounting the motherboard.
Cons: No place for mounting a 2.5" ssd that I could find, though the manual discusses 3.5/2.5 mounting option. I've never had a bottom-mounted PSU before, a litte concern of having the pci slots right in front of the PSU fan outlet vent. I don't trust the little plastic tabs they use for HDD mounting, but I have no experience with them either ;)READ FULL REVIEW
