Pros: Cheap quick i3 processor. HDMI, decent audio chip although the onboard speakers arent much to rave about. Seems well built, but we'll see as time wears on it.
Cons: Haven't played anything on it but I'm sure the video is weak on it. Not why I got it anyway. Also, there is massive amounts of bloatware to remove which was annoying but I got there. I can't really take an egg off for it.
Overall Review: Needed it to play HD movies and to be able to take it to job interviews. Has an HDMI out on it, and also a VGA out so I can pick my poison.
Pros: Extra buttons on the side are great for MMOs that use hot keys. This mouse is extra great for action based mmos that use a target like Tera and DragonNest and have abilities on the hot a hot bar you have to reach for.
Cons: A bit small, I dont use 7-12 because of it. I dont use the index finger buttons on the left side of the left mouse button either.
Overall Review: Not a bad mouse, having issues with the left button now after like a year or so. When I hold it down, it randomly comes up. A real problem when trying to click and drag something in Windows. I'm so used to the buttons now that I'd get another one if it dies.
Not horrible, not magical either
Pros: Well, its much smaller than my Sapphire 3850 AGP. It also runs quieter and I'm sure it uses less power.
Cons: Seems to perform less than my Sapphire 3850 AGP as of right now. Future drivers might change this obviously. Also, like that card, this one will end up needing hotfix drivers in the future. Niether ATIs standard 9.6 drivers, or their 9.6 hotfix drivers will install right from the download. Only one that works is the one off the CD.
Overall Review: You can install newer drivers though, if you put your cards registry information in the downloaded driver files.
