Better than a netbook

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite AMD Sempron M100 (2.0GHz) 2GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Radeon 4100 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit L505D-LS5002
TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite AMD Sempron M100 (2.0GHz) 2GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Radeon 4100 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit L505D-LS5002

Pros: I just got this in and wow im impressed with: Keyboard, No cpu fan noise, single 2gb stick of 800mhz ram (one empty slot that will be filled with another 2gb, Display is clean and clear, Powered up first try with no problems, Windows 7 64bit, Bigger screen than a netbook, Dvd burner, ATI 4100 mobility graphics, 250gb HDD... All for $350. Great system for the money.

Cons: Only 2 USB ports and No Hdmi (LOL).

Overall Review: Must stress for $350 you cant go wrong. I have on order another 2gb stick of ram and a AMD turion ultra II 600m CPU. Total cost for upgrades is $140. So for under $500 I get a laptop worth roughly $700 to $800. Not bad considering what is out there for under $500. The cpu I found on e bay. Please do your research before you upgrade any laptop cpu. They are very picky on which chipsets they run on and the socket for this product is S1G3.

Broken front panel

Rosewill Conqueror RPS-01-WB500P Triple 120mm Fans Steel ATX Mid tower Computer Case with 500W Power Supply
Rosewill Conqueror RPS-01-WB500P Triple 120mm Fans Steel ATX Mid tower Computer Case with 500W Power Supply

Pros: The case looks good. 500 watt PSU Rosewill model#CVP-500 Specs(+5v=20amp, +3.3v=24amp, 12v1=19amp, 12v2=18amp, -12v=.5amps, +5vsb=2.5amps) -2 sata connectors - 20+4 MOBO connector -4/8 pin mobo connector -3 4pin molex w/floppy connector -1 6pin pcie The PSU should power most MOBO and video cards (w/1 6pin pcie connetor) nvida 250gts or below Seems to have plenty of space even for larger vid cards (will be tight but should fit no problem) 3> 120mm fans 2 that light up blue Clear side panel with a spot for 120 mm fan

Cons: The front panel was broken making the case unuseable. Contacted newegg thru the live chat and seems that they will be contacting the manufacture and sending out a new front panel. If they do this I would change my review to 5 stars. Door seems ok but it only opens maybe 110degs which if your rough opening the door it will most likely break.

Overall Review: First time buying a Rosewill product my experience so far is ok. Using this case for an HTPC Sytem= Evga 780i mobo, q6700 cpu, True 120 Extreme cooler, Evga 9800gtx Video card, 500 GB HDD, and a 80gb HDD. ***Only time will tell how long the PSU will survive...

Pros: None .

Cons: Wont boot in a toshiba satellite.

Overall Review: Hoping I can get credit and try a different set of ram. I matched up the timings and speed will not boot windows....

EXCELLENT Ram

G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD
G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD

Pros: The support forums at gskill helped get this ram running @ 2000mhz. They have settings for multiple MOBO's. Im running a I5 720 @ 3.4 ghz, 4gb 2000mhz ddr3 gskill ram, gigabyte p55 udr3. Very fast speeds. Fist time owing gskill and I will be returning to buy another set soon.

Cons: Heat sink is tall may not work with some coolers. Still haven't had time to test out the V-10. Doesn't look like there will be enough room. Does not matter since Im running a zalmen 9700 with temps 28C idle and 54C loaded (intel burn test)

Overall Review: for just over $100 its a great buy. You wont find bettter ram at these speeds for the cost....
