Avoid Asrock9/23/2013 4:56:58 PM

Pros: Its black like the inside of my computer case

Cons: had it for 10 months, was picky a few times and didnt post(should have been my warning to return it). Now its completely dead, and i have all of my graduate level coursework on my desktop. I work as a network administrator, tried all the tricks of the trade to see if i could get a pulse out of this garbage motherboard and i couldnt. Currently waiting on this company's tier 1 technical support for an email back asking if i reset the cmos, or reseated the ram. I have done all of it, and now I have to rip apart my computer to get my hard drive to upload all my coursework. DO NOT CUT CORNERS. Avoid this garbage company.

Overall Review: I can save Asrock a favor, by saying i have reseated the ram, resteated the processor, reset the cmos, unplugged everything and turned it on, all i get are spinning fans. No post. Dead motherboard. But go ahead and look like a fool Asrock and post a suggestion on how i should see if my ram is faulty. What a joke.

Best thin and light laptop for the $11/15/2012 6:07:53 AM

Pros: Thin, light, backlit keyboard, still has dvd drive. 640m le graphics card for medium BF3 playing (outstanding on a sub 1000$ laptop, especially 4lbs) the power adapter is super small and light

Cons: 2gb of ram soldered on, came with a 500gb 5400rpm (why do they even make these still)

Overall Review: Not the thinnest, but it has a nice brushed aluminum look, backlit keyboard really makes it look nice, i5 processor and 640m graphics card is absolutely fantastic for this price and small build. Probably the best laptop ive bought or seen for the money since the original core 2 duo's came out 6 years ago.

Did the job, went to jail though4/1/2011 9:23:03 PM

Pros: fantastic gifts to give to your rude neighbors who's dogs use your lawn as their toilet. Need mid-ranged power if your interested in hitting top windows of the house your throwing them at, which was not any problem after you put all your frustration into the throw. 3 was all i needed for the job, car windshield, front door, and bedroom window.

Cons: Could have been more innards, and even though this isnt neweggs fault, i probably should have let them sit in the sun for a day or two so my neighbors would have had a nice pleasant smell eminating from their yard

Overall Review: DigerTirect.com was selling for 30$ more exclaiming they had the lowest price, dont be fooled cause they will have phone solicitors call you every day asking the reason i shop at newegg instead of them

Pros: Able to play Battlefield Bad Company 2 on max settings.....for about a half an hour

Cons: Stutters while playing battlefield 2, System Crash while playing bad company 2, system freezes, and makes a loud noise in the speakers, all my other games crash midway through playing

Overall Review: Thought i did my homework, but before you buy a 460, read up on all the problems about crashing and whatnot, very unreliable card line, thanks nvidia on your outstanding quality control
