Pros: Looked really sleek.
Seemed to run smoothly when it worked.
Not a ton of bloatware .
Windows 7.
Very nice display.

Cons: Some flex in the keyboard.
Saw some crazy variation in wireless connection speed in a short amount of time.

Other Thoughts: Got this laptop yesterday, booted it up, went though windows setup, got steam installed and downloaded a game. Played the game for a few hours as an initial test of the computer and everything ran very smoothly.

When I went to unplug the computer from the ethernet there was a small static discharge between me and the case of the computer. This immediately shut the computer off, even though it was still plugged into the A/C adapter. I went to turn the computer back on, and got nothing. I went though all of the things that I could think of to try to get it to turn back on. Nothing. Went to turn it on this morning, still nothing. It is well and truly fried from a small static shock, when it should of been grounded by the A/C adapter.

I have been building my own towers for years, I have even shorted a motherboard before in one of my builds, (not my fault one of the plastic screw holes, that was supposed to separate the motherboard screws from the case, was cracked.) I understand the dangers of static electricity and computers. But I have never seen a grounded computer shocked on it's chassis (which is there to protect the rest of the computer) just completely die.

I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed Gigabyte. I bought this computer having done months of research, and having had personal experience with Gigabyte products before (I currently run a Gigabyte motherboard in my tower rig). I have to say that I will be much more leery of their products in the future, since I now have to return this computer I've had for a day.

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior

Pros: Best case I have ever owned. I decided on this case for my custom gaming rig a year ago. I run a AMD 1090T black edition overclocked @4ghz, 16gb of g-skill ram overclocked @1920~ and an ATI sapphire 6870 graphics card. My typical run temp -- 29'c and when I put it under heavy load gaming or working (I often have the Unity Engine + another IDE + a dozen other programs open) I max at 40'c. This case really knows how to move air.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's a full ATX tower, its huge, and it weights a ton! I knew all this going in, and that's the type of tower I was looking for. I mean have you seen the latest graphics cards? They are huge. But again, I knew all this so definitely not worth docking an egg for.

ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24

Pros: Colors are great, contrast is great, and there is basically no lag. I have also been completely unable to find any dead pixels, and have noticed 0 ghosting.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I love this monitor, in fact I loved it so much at home, that I ordered one for myself to use at work, (I'm a programmer). Works just as well for coding (the contrast is really nice, I like a dark background when I code) as it does for games.
