I love it
Pros: I am very pleased with this laptop, I did my research and I got exactly what I expected. First of all, this case looks very nice, it's slim, sleek, and beautifully simple. It's very sturdy and well, designed; the screen is sharp and bright, and the speaker quality is the best I've heard in a laptop. With the dual core processor and 3GB of ram, I can multi-task up the ying-yang! I can browse the web while downloading a movie and playing a DVD at the same time without any noticable slow-down. Wireless connectivity is pretty good and it's pretty fast. Thanks to Vista the setup for the internet is incredibly simple. The Veriface software is very intuitive and smart, it works perfectly, even in low-light or odd angles. On that note the webcam is of pretty good quality. I don't care who you are, I think Vista is great, It looks very pretty and it's a lot more secure than XP. Windows Media Center is awesome and it all runs very well. I love this laptop, It works perfectly!
Cons: Norton and MS Office are only trial versions, But that wasn't much of a problem for me, I had the real software on hand when I got the laptop. The DVD drive is only a little noisy when it's loading something, but it's not too bad. Many areas of the laptop are smudge and dust magnets, but Lenovo knew this and provided a dust-cloth inside the box.
Overall Review: I reccomend getting this Laptop, it has everything you need for work and casual play at a very good price. The keyboard is perfectly sized and typing is very comfortable. I also really like the touch-keys above the keyboard, becuase they are pretty handy and I've used them more than I thought I would. The battery life is great and I love the neat battery indicator below the screen. Everythign about this laptop screams clever design, sturdy build, and great reliability. This laptop makes simplicity look so cool.
Pros: It's very cheap and looks pretty nifty.
Cons: The placement of the keys makes typing a bit awkward. You cna't really type very fast or you will start mispelling everything because the keys are awkward. I wouldnt suggest buying this, it's not so great. I want to replace it pretty bad.
Overall Review: It's cool looking but don't buy it.
I Love it
Pros: Compact is an understatement. This Camera is incredibly small. The quality of the images is astounding and the video recording is better than some camcorders, I still can't believe it. I love the metal construction, its very solid and the battery life is good. The quality of design on this camera gives me much respect for Canon.
Cons: screen had one dead pixel but it doesn't really bother me.
Overall Review: Camera operation is very fast.
Pros: It's absolutely perfect, I love it. The USB receiver is the smallest I have ever seen, it's a marvel! It just barely sticks out the side of my laptop. This is the perfect choice for laptops by the way. Here's all the reasons why: Small, but not too small Tiny, nano USB receiver Receiver fits it nifty slot inside battery compartment Very efficient, only change batteries once every 190 days or so. Awesome smoothness and accuracy very cool looking Plug and play, just plug it in and you're good to go! Software lets you tweak button properties and displays battery info Even comes in a nifty little carrying bag. : )
Cons: I honestly can't say anything bad about it, it's perfect.
Overall Review: Scroll-wheel is made of metal and set on a low friction bearing, you can have it click or if you press it down it can roll smoothly. Very cool...
I love this game
Pros: I don't understand why so many people love to hate Halo 3. I myself love this game. To start, the story is amazing, I have never seen such an entertaining sci-fi story like this. I could play single player over and over again, and I have! I really love the graphic detail in this game as well. The water affects are beautiful and the textures are very pretty. Bungie didnt leave out anything when it came to map details, You can even see dead fish rise up when you throw a grenade in the water! New weapons and vehicles are very cool as well. It runs very smooth and loads pretty well. You can go into a sandbox mod called "Forge" and edit the multiplayer maps to your liking. I also love the theater option, where I can replay any gaming I've done, either in single, or multiplayer, saves clips and take screenshots; I really like that. I also like the very much improved multiplayer system that assures even balanced games and a steady leveling system. Sound equality is very very very good as well
Cons: Wish there were a few more armor options to customize with. other than that, it's all good.
Overall Review: Who cares that it's popular, who cares that it got lots of hype. This is still a very well-made game that is very fun to play.
Much better keyboard
Pros: This keybaord is so much better than the one I had before. I love Logitech input devices. This keybaord is nice and slim, it has a good solid construction, and the typing is very comfortable. I love the much more silent keys, but not too silent that it makes keypresses awkward feeling. I usually prefer the simplicity and reliabilty of wired keyboards compared to the convienience of wireless. And this keyboard matches my current mouse and monitor, very nice.
Cons: If the desk surface you set it on is uneven the keys can rattle a tiny bit due to minute wobbliness. But thats not really a con, when I have it on a good surface the typing is very nice and quiet.
Overall Review: No scroll-lock? Oh well, I never use that darn button anyway, good riddence. This keyboard greatly improved my typing comfort. Too bad it can't help me with my spelling, :P
