Pros: Excellent Laptop for the price, I will never understand why these people spend upwards of 1500 on laptops directly from dell or hp when they can get them alot cheaper on websites like newegg, or laptops that perform just as well and are alot cheaper. I would never recommend a different laptop to anyone that is looking to do everything but game.
Cons: Video card is weak, but that was expected, doesn't come with content cds, the data is backed up on a seperate drive which can be good but it can be bad in other ways. Comes with some unwanted software.
Overall Review: Great deal, great buy, webcam is a nice feature, media center remote is also very cool, comes with headphones
Shiny blue destruction!
Pros: Excellent clean look, lots of power, great efficiency rating, quiet, stays cool, polished to a mirror sheen. Lots of cables that have good reach.
Cons: anti vibration rubber wouldnt fit inside my antec 900 case, it was too tight, not to worry though because the silicon pads keep it firmly in place and do a better job.
Overall Review: make sure you hook it op to everything before you test it!
Pros: Great board if you arent a big fan of sli, cant do any better for the money. High fsb for cpu, supports very fast ram, great design, sturdy construction, excellent manual, slimmer than most atx boards so itll give you more space in the case, despite what newegg says it does have an onboard video hookup, lots of hook ups and cables for everything.
Cons: doesnt do sli, doesnt support older ram as far as i know, thats really it and those arent even that big of a deal.
Pros: Excellent construction and quality, fans are plentiful and there's even a mount with a vent already on the side if you want to mount another to cool your video card (and everything else really) Setup was fairly easy, this was my first true build so i had to really read the manual for installation but its a better idea to read the motherboard for installation rather than the case manual. Blue lights look fantastic, lots of drive bays, cool design.
Cons: There is enough space for expansion cards etc despite being a mid tower but once the power supply cables go in things start to get very cramped, you can string them up in such a way to be cleaner but for those of you who are ocd about these things... youve been warned
Overall Review: great case, must buy for the money.
