Antec Eleven Hundred Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Meets all expectation for the price.
Nice looking all black with big blue LED fan.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: May be a bit big for some folks but easy to build with my ham fists.

Galaxy GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) DirectX 11 52GPS4HX2LXX 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Gets you basic, satisfactory performance on Star Wars the Old Republic and better than basic on Minecraft.

Cons: None. I had a pretty good idea of what I was buying into.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to get Star Wars the Old Republic to run. Researched first for "hierarchy of video cards" and knew this would be near the minimum to run the game. Overall happy with this purchase.

Acer Laptop Aspire AS5742-7120 Intel Core i3 1st Gen 370M (2.40 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Boot time in Win7 and login better than expected.

Meets expectations as a home office and travel machine.

Works well on office apps, GIMP, 2D Drafting, databases with lots of scientific data management and plot rendering, and PDF rendering/manipulation. Runs fine when four or five apps running.

Satin, checkerplate weave finish hides fingerprints, but frame around screen and screen won't if you like to touch for some reason.

Cons: Fan a little noisy when opening apps or saving. I haven't used a laptop in a year so this may be common in recent multi-core models. You should check other reviewers.

Does not handle XD memory cards and has glare from glossy screen, but knew this when purchasing this budget machine.

Other Thoughts: Our of the box WEI scores:
- 3D biz and gaming 5.1, Aero 4.6 ( I don't use either in this office environment)
- Processor 6.7
- RAM 5.9
- Hard disk transfer rate 5.9.

Typical trialware to uninstall.

Newegg is great!!!
