Pros: Came with Windows 7 64 bit. Great amount of memory and hard drive space. Built in webcam.
Cons: The case and hinges aren't my favorite, they feel like the case is a thin plastic material, and the hinges sometimes snap the screen closed fast if you're not paying attention.
Overall Review: Bought this as a home use laptop (internet, office, picure storage, etc), and don't use it for gaming much. What games I do use work fantastic, and this is a great computer for general use. It's not built for gaming, which is ok for me, spend more if that's what you want. Mother in law bought a more expensive Acer and wishes she had this one, becuase it's easier to use, and she's not tech savvy at all. Bottom line, great starter computer, or one to send with the kids to college, or for general home/home office use.
Pros: Awesome quality for an entry level camera.
Easy to start shooting right out of the box.
Lots of picture modes for various looks.
Lightweight, but solid construction.
Included lens is great for average everyday pictures.
Cons: Sometimes the lense auto-focuses on the wrong subject, but it's easy to use the manual focus to get what you're looking for.
Overall Review: Bought this camera to take pictures of my infant daughter, but took tons of pictures of everything, and they all look great. I've had people ask where I had pictures taken of my little girl because the camera helps the photos look like they were professionally taken. This is obviously an entry level camera, but it does a much better job than my 12mp point-and-shoot. This is a great entry level camera for the price, and I am looking forward to getting more lenses to expand my photo expertise.
Pros: Has great shooting longivity!
Cons: Seems like it does discharge fast when stored in camera and not in use.
Did have to use a pliers to get it in and out of camera a few times to get the contacts "worn in".
Overall Review: Great as a spare battery! When stored holds charge well, and shoots a ton of pictures on a single charge. Great battery for the price.
Pros: Bought with a Canon EOS Rebel XS. Bag is HUGE for camera. Has tons of space for extra lenses and other accessories. 4 gig card has plenty of space for tons of pictures.
Cons: None that I've found.
Overall Review: Great bag/card for the price. Bag is great quality.
