Great Ultrabook

ASUS ZenBook Prime Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3317U (1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 13.3" 1920 x 1080 Notebook Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit UX31A-DB51
ASUS ZenBook Prime Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3317U (1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 13.3" 1920 x 1080 Notebook Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit UX31A-DB51

Pros: Great light little ultrabook with a super battery life. It has acceptable speed for most general user purposes. I haven't really tried games but I didn't get it for that. It boots stupid fast.

Cons: The only cons I have are a squeaky space bar that I will probably call into support about. Other than that the touchpad interferes with typing at times but I'm getting used to it.

Overall Review: Great buy and well made Ultrabook for someone looking for an Airbook type hardware platform that runs windows without paying for the glowing apple.

Good OS SSD

Pros: Good, fast, great for a OS boot drive in my HTPC.

Cons: None, worked as advertised

Nice ultrabook

SAMSUNG Series 9 NP900X3C-A01US 13" Ultrabook
SAMSUNG Series 9 NP900X3C-A01US 13" Ultrabook

Pros: Very nice, light and seems like it's very high quality. I haven't had any of the trackpad issues others have reported - I nearly didn't purchase it for that reason. It's much lighter than my Asus Prime Ultrabook and more "manly" to boot.

Cons: I purchased this for my wife, she typed one sentence and hated the keyboard. She took my Asus Prime and now I'm using this. My only real complaint is the keyboard, the keys take a little more effort to press and if I really get going (can type 100+ WPM) I miss letters. I hope I get used to it or they get worn in. Another complaint - it didn't come with a micro HDMI to VGA which I had to purchase as I use it for presentations. Additionally I'm picking up a cheap sleeve. The Asus came with both of those.

Overall Review: This is an awesome ultrabook - it didn't review as well as the Asus, but I honestly like it better.

Good financial calc

HP 12CP Platinum Financial Calculator, 10-Digit LCD

Pros: It's a great calculator that's pretty easy to use. Has all the financial functions needed for my uses - MBA school.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about this is the stack. I wish it could hold more than 2 numbers on the stack ala a scientific RPN calculator and that you could do things like swap numbers. I find myself having to store values to banks to bring them back later for evaluations. I knew this going in though.

Great general purpose router

Pros: Easy to setup - exactly what I was looking for. A reliable "up to" 300mbps N router that didn't break the bank. This fit the bill. Fast shipping as always.

Cons: None.
