Pros: It's cheap. It works fairly well for paper pushing and internet browsing. Resolution is fair. The keyboard is responsive and easy to type with. It is very quiet and doesn't feel too heavy in a backpack.

Cons: First off, since this computer is so cheap, there are things they had to compromise. The battery is horrible. Just typing and internet browsing will wear the battery down in less than 3 hours and maybe even within 2 hours. I haven't timed it but it seems fairly short. The touchpad is pretty bad. The touchpad will stop working for 20 seconds randomly. The touchpad is also poorly made and is hard to use.
The headphone jack is wonky. Mine goes way deeper than a normal 1/8" and I have to put the headphones in just the right amount to get the whole spectrum of a song or video. Sometimes it is impossible to find the sweet spot.
The computer takes a long time to load everything. It will turn on fairly quickly but I cant use the internet or any apps for about a minute after the computer is on the tiles. But I have an SSD in my home computer so it might not seem as slow to others and I have yet to get rid of bloatware.
The wireless card is weird as well. At home, I can get 2 bars of connectivity but at my college I can get full bars. I guess it just depends on the wireless.
Also windows 8 without a touchscreen.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a decent computer with some improvements needed. If you need a computer for around $400 I think this is your best bet but if I had more money I would get something a little more solid with better battery, better touchpad and better WLAN card.

ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23

Pros: It's big and is very colorful. There is so much space for multi-tasking it's insane going to this right before having a tube monitor. It is also rather cheap price wise.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Best bang for the buck.

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

Pros: The processor is very fast and good for multitasking. I have yet to OC it but with the ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler it idles at around 29 C and the highest I've got it was 45 C when rendering in After Effects.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you want to overclock this thing, get a good cooler. They run hot.
