Pros: Specs are perfect
Ticks all the right boxes
Cons: Backlit Silver Keyboard hard to see in daylight - have to turn off the backlight.
Not a fan of the "Dreamy White"
Overall Review: I purchased for a client - the laptop is all but perfect - good specs etc.
I would of gone for black and not the white if they had stock, but white was the only colour available. I have purchased "silver keyboard" laptops before and it's a challenge to see the key
lettering - best choice is backlight off during daylight and on during night time.
Pros: Inexpensive, OK looking
Cons: Tight fit for Micro ATX board.
Overall Review: This case is probably the most inexpensive on the market, and if you after a low cost case, this is the one for you. The only issues I had were, that I had to remove the rear case fan to get the micro ATX board into the case. And i had to remove the 'holding plate for the ATX power supply to fit. To be fair there is an alternative mounting for the PS plate, but not sure why it's required, so I didn't re-install. If you don't mind the minor issues and want a low cost case then I recommend this one.
Overall Review: The case is nice, good design, fairly easy to work on. The only issue I had was that the 400 Watt Power Supply. It works but after a couple of uses the power button on the PS "broke" - it's working but you cannot turn off using the switch it moves but doesn't engage. Anyway - not a deal breaker as the system is working.
Pros: Fast, attractive nicve features
Overall Review: I only have 1 issue, I purchased for a client. I normally only purchase Intel CPU products, but took a gamble with this item. The CPU and Nvidia Geforce work well together, but you do loose approx 2GB of ram. Not a deal breaker but worth considering.
Pros: Condition was excellent, no scratches or dings.
Performance was much faster than I was expecting.
Shipped pretty quickly.
Cons: None really.
OK it's an older unit - but that was known when I ordered.
No HDMI, but does have a mini display port.
Overall Review: I would recommend, if you are in need of a "fit for purpose" unit. This may be what you've been looking for.
Pros: fast SSD and Data drive
Cons: SSD a bit small 128GB
