Very slow laptop would not recommend8/21/2018 9:52:03 AM

Pros: - The touchscreen works ok - Fast enough for maybe 1 chrome tab or something like that

Cons: - Too slow to have pretty much any sort of multitasking - Battery doesn't last very long - I bought this laptop for my mom, but it was just too slow and small for her. Bought a chromebook instead and she loves it.

Great laptop for my mom8/21/2018 9:49:54 AM

Pros: - Beautiful aluminum body - Super fast (it is a chromebook after all), and the 4GB of ram really helps it stay fast for whatever my mom has to do on it - ChromeOS is easy to use for a laywoman like my mom who doesn't know a whole lot about computers - It is nearly impossible for this machine to get a virus, which is great

Cons: - The lid dents easily as my mom found out, but it didn't crack the screen because of the sturdy construction

Great video card8/21/2018 9:45:25 AM

Pros: - Performs great. Over 144 fps in lighter titles like league of legends and overwatch, and over 60fps in games like witcher 3. - Looks awesome with the huge 3 fan design and extra heatsink. - Cools very well despite my case having awful airflow. - Still kicking a year later and runs like the day I got it.

Cons: - Draws a ton of power - 4GB Vram makes it so that I cannot reliably run lighter games with supersampling turned on, but this isn't that big of a deal

Not bad, but not really that good8/21/2018 9:40:43 AM

Pros: - Cheap. At the time of purchasing, for $50 you couldn't find a much better case - Looks pretty nice, despite not having a tempered glass sidepanel - Cable routing is easy enough with the locations of the holes for cables - Plenty of space for my extra long Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury gpu

Cons: - Airflow is quite bad, as there is not a proper mount for a 120mm fan on the front and there are very minimal vents to let air in on that side - Fan controller built into case is almost always lame because you have no software control. I don't use this feature because of it and use different fans instead - Only one usb 3.0 port on the front panel

Solid board with good wifi card, memory support is below average8/21/2018 9:35:35 AM

Pros: - Built in wifi is actually quite good and is more stable than a lot of laptop wifi I have used in the same location in my house - Has a very nice black and white color scheme with nothing too ugly on the board - Plenty of connectors for my storage and future proof with m.2 slots and rgb header for future upgrades - No blue screens or system errors that I can tell were caused by mobo on both windows 10 and ubuntu 18.04

Cons: - Memory support slightly dissapointing, as I am using a 2x8 3000mhz kit from corsair that I can only get to 2800mhz stable - ASrock RGB software is a little lackluster and the LEDs aren't quite the same color that you pick in the software

Good $/GB, Fast Enough, 1/2 Faulty8/21/2018 9:28:50 AM

Pros: - At the time of purchasing, $100 for a 480GB ssd was a pretty good deal - Fast enough for loading games and occasionally copying large files to external storage (haven't measured) - Doesn't have an egregiously ugly design if that is something you care about

Cons: - Bought 2 of this ssd, one for my laptop and one for my desktop. The one I put in my desktop got corrupt sectors after about 1-2 months of use, so I rmaed it - RMA process was EXTREMELY slow. Took over 1 month to receive replacement ssd, this may have been a one time thing, but it was frustrating nonetheless.
