Most Favorable Review

wow, worth double.

Acer Laptop Aspire E5-571-53S1 Intel Core i5 5th Gen 5200U (2.20GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 5500 15.6" Windows 8.1
Acer Laptop Aspire E5-571-53S1 Intel Core i5 5th Gen 5200U (2.20GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 5500 15.6" Windows 8.1

Pros: full with numeric pad. i5, and good specs all around. 500 GB HD, better specs than the Aspire E5-571-5552 Intel Core i5 4210U sold here for $599. it does come with win 8.1 enhanced start with start button feature instead of tiles. it also uses AC wireless and connects full bars to my Asus AC router. better than all my other network devices. the 599 model is only N wireless. can't beat it for the price.

Cons: Opps, no DVD player, but it looks like a spot is available for one. I don't love the keyboard but that is mostly a matter of getting used to it. the num pad tricks you into placing hands too much in middle of keyboard. Occational curser jump due to palms touching the touchpad while typing.

Overall Review: uninstall the bloated 30 day trial Mcafee Antivirus and update the built in windows 8 AV. Same with the bogus office 30 day trial.

so far so fabulous

Optoma TS551 800 x 600 2800 Lumens DLP Projector 3500:1
Optoma TS551 800 x 600 2800 Lumens DLP Projector 3500:1

Pros: • Two VGA Input ports + HDMI + S video. • Nice bright clear projection. 3D ready. Compact • Price! = Great Price/features point. • nice carry case • Quality build and feel

Cons: Hmmm, let see, I'm still thinking... Nope, none so far

Overall Review: I looked at a lot of other projectors at Fries and Best buy and wasn’t crazy about the price vs features of what I was finding. Epsons seemed cheaply built… I use a Optoma at the office and like it so when I saw this one for the price I ordered it. So far I love it. It has two VGA Input ports + HDMI + S video. Nice bright clear projection. I use it for movie night with the kids at home when not at work doing a PowerPoint. You can not do better for the price.
