Pros: Keeps CPU temps well below 50c area, hits low 50c even during gaming.
Cons: No cons really
Overall Review: This is a pretty good sized heat sink. Make sure you have enough space in your case to fit it and make sure your motherboard leaves enough space between the CPU and RAM for no overhang.
Pros: This mouse actually made my gameplay improve as far as point to point accuracy just based off of how you had to move when using it. It's a sturdy mouse and seemed to be built rather well too.
Cons: It's a little small for my hands, so when using it my pink rest a little funny. I did eventually get use to it though. When using this mouse on the desktop when switching between games it's the weirdest and seemingly uncomfortable thing I've ever done.
Overall Review: You want to make sure you have a pretty big mouse pad when using this mouse as it will take up a lot of mouse pad space. Although this mouse is pretty awesome for gaming I always found myself wanting to go back to my regular mouse. This could just be me though.
Pros: Light weight 15.6' screen
Cons: No CD/DVD 1366 x 768 Resolution Windows 8 Keyboard
Overall Review: I knew coming into this purchase that the laptop would not have a CD/DVD drive so this really isn't a problem. What does such though is that even today with all these new 4k tv's and high res IPS panels we still can't get 1600 x 900 on a standard 15.6' screen. Overall though this laptop runs really well. It's very light weight, but still feels sturdy enough to move around with you. The keyboard is a little cheap looking and also feels a little cheap. I haven't run into any issues with it as of yet but compared to my ASUS G46VW laptop this keyboard kinda sucks. The touchpad has to distinct buttons, one for left and one for right. With that though the touchpad as a whole will navigate the cursor. So even when you move your finger to the left click button the mouse will move even when your finger is on the button. Still a pretty fast machine for what it has inside. Wish that I could put something else other than windows 8 on it. Just more work than I want to put in.
