I like this machine

Lenovo Laptop Edge E545 (20B20011US) AMD A6-Series A6-5350M (2.90GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8450G 15.6" Windows 7 Pro 64-bit pre-installed / Windows 8 Pro 64-bit Upgrade Media and License Included
Lenovo Laptop Edge E545 (20B20011US) AMD A6-Series A6-5350M (2.90GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8450G 15.6" Windows 7 Pro 64-bit pre-installed / Windows 8 Pro 64-bit Upgrade Media and License Included

Pros: -Solid Lenovo quality -Nice size -Decent Processor -Good Battery -Bright Screen -Upgradable to Windows 8.1 PRO -Hardware can be upgraded -Super Easy access to Hardware and cooling system

Cons: I am annoyed by the lack of a HDD activity light.

Overall Review: I have upgraded this laptop a bit since getting it. I put in another 4gb DDR3 1600 CAS11. This made a huge difference. I also replaced the APU with a A10-5750m. Next I will replaced the HDD with a SDD. I bought this for school, I have a video arts class that needs something with so power.

LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply

Pros: looks nice,Quite

Cons: It has been 4 months and it is dying It tends works most of the time, but every once in a while it crackles and restarts over and over every 2 seconds never reaching bios, when it does start the Usb ports sometimes don't power on.

Overall Review: The restarting just killed one of my hard drives. I am replacing it before it kills anything else.

High Quality

Pros: -Cheap -Stock Android -Low bloatware (Facebook, Twitter, instagram are considered bloatware) -Decent hardware (not high end or any where near close, but can play some 3d games without lag) -Install the app "FlashFox" it is a web browser with flash built in and it works perfectly. -Good wifi range -Good battery lasted me through a day at school -Good sound quality -Good Build Quality -2amp charger (charges quickly) -rooted by default

Cons: -no bluetooth -yeah for its price there isn't much more.

Overall Review: I got this for school, to stay organized, didn't expect it to preform this well, though.

Nice

Pros: Rigid and thick. Great Traction Tough

Cons: You can feel the bike vibrate from the rougher tread on the street. Not really a con, but a sideffect of getting a knobby tire.

Overall Review: I got this tireto replace the ones that came with my bike. The ones on it were just too thin, and would puncture easily. These tires can handle rocks and sand easily.
