Plays Games Like a Dream

Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 3rd Gen 3630QM (2.40GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI - 16 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD 16 GB SSD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y500 (59359559) )
Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 3rd Gen 3630QM (2.40GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI - 16 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD 16 GB SSD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y500 (59359559) )

Pros: *Dual Graphic Cards *SSD Cache (yes it does work at making windows faster) *Huge amount of ram *Runs high end games with minimal heat increase *Low price point for the machine you get

Cons: *Some might say the lack of an optical drive, and while it does hinder the ease of loading games that I own on dvd/cd it is worth it because the space is being used by the second drive which you can pull out place a drive in that Lenovo sells for 70$. So for me not a con but had to note it just the same for other users.

Overall Review: No regrets whatsoever in this purchase unlike other laptops and the such that I have bought in the past and two days later was kicking myself. If you aren't rich or just don't like throwing money around for gaming rigs you will end up dumping a year later anyway this is the system to get.

Most Critical Review

Got one with burnt out usb ports.

ASRock ALIVENF6G-VSTA AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 or 6150SE / nForce 430 (Depend on the version) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price. Instructions. Booted right up.

Cons: USB ports stopped working and then burnt out some of my USB devices. Thankfully I did not have my Smartphone hooked up to it.

Overall Review: If I was not RMA'ing it, I would probably never get this one again. However NewEgg as always is topnotch in their service and helpfulness. Not their fault a company messed up.

Nice design.

Pros: Design. Like the small, squat footprint of the case. Slide out motherboard tray.

Cons: Temperature gauges do not work. (at least not on mine) The motherboard tray is a bit hard to fit in and take out to be honest. Front panel plugs are mislabled.

Nice price to a nice product

Pros: The price is hard to beat on a product that worked as soon as I inserted it into my phone. No glitches or gaffs.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: NewEgg definately is hard to beat in price and service and top running computer parts from big name manufacturers.

Nice priced case.

Pros: 1. Price 2. Design - I know some people have listed it as being too flimsy and while this is true to a point, for the price I didn't expect a case I could use for a football. I am clumsy as can be and I managed to not dent it at all. So I am happy with it. As I am with most of Rosewill's products and they have a good track record of sticking by their products, just look at other reviews and you will see Rosewill's comments to try to fix issues. Not something you see in a lot of companies nowadays.

Cons: The IO shield, well their were parts on it that cut me and it was a bit difficult to pop in at least for me. So most of this could be an operators issue in all fairness.

Overall Review: Rosewill has always satisfied me, even when one of their products might not have; they quickly remedied it. So I would definately use their products as often as I get the chance. And NewEgg is always a pleasure to deal with, both shipping (shipping is sometimes a tad high, admittedly) and customer service.

Works like a charm.

Pros: Inexpensive. Ease of setting it up.

Cons: None that I have noticed for the year and seven months of ownership.

Overall Review: When this router finally gives up I hope to be able to get another one that is the exact model.
