Pros: Quick Setup
Room for improvements
Good component lifespan
Cons: Poor cable placement/management
GPU Extends over most the SATA ports
Overall Review: Ive had this for over 2 years now and was a bit skeptical of getting a pre-built PC. I can say for certainty that this was a FANTASTIC purchase! It was ready to go as soon as I got it, just turned it on and set up my account. Everything is seated and installed so well I actually shipped it as-is from Japan to the US when I transferred duty stations. Everything is nice and snug but there is still room to install or replace components as you see fit. My one grip is the way the cables were tucked away made it frustrating to dig them out and get enough slack for each new HDD and SSD I installed. Overall I would definitely buy another pre-built like this one.
Responsive touch screen
Great battery life
Lightweight and portable
Cons: Processor lacks somewhat
Would prefer a larger HDD
Overall Review: Great for the price, bought it as a gift for my mother and after messing with it myself I plan on purchasing my own soon.
Pros: Extremely fast boot time
Good battery life
Good feel to it
Cons: Dual-Core turbo to 2.11GHz which still isnt fast enough for the multitasking I do with no issues.
Overall Review: For the price and considering other specs of the Notebook this is a great deal. I would recommend this for sure.
Pros: Very quiet
Variable fan speed
On/Off for both fan and blue LED
Cons: Fan could have a higher speed max
Overall Review: Other than wanting the fan to have a higher max speed this is a great deal. It cools very well and can help your laptop when pushing it to its limits
Pros: SLI Cards with ability to change which does what
Cons: Cards clock way down when not plugged in
Graphics driver crashes a little too often when idle
Only 3 USB ports
Needs more ventilation
Overall Review: Overall this is very good for gaming and anything else you would need, the graphic crashes are nothing more than the screen flickering a few times followed by a notification.
I was very, VERY skeptical of the Windows 8 OS but after 5 minutes of use I had gotten very used to it and LOVE IT, I have zero issues with it on anything, I can even play games from early 2000s without any troubles.
