GIGABYTE GA-C847N-D Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

5 out of 5 eggs Works great running Ubuntu 13.04 07/23/2013

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-C847N-D Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: Compact and quiet. Runs Ubuntu 13.04 without any problems.

Cons: Nothing has really shown up as a issue.

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i (PA03643-B002) CIS x 2 600 x 600 dpi ADF, duplex Portable Color Scanner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've used the S1300i for about a year now without problems. It can easily handle 10-12 unfolded pages or if you help guide it, even a wrinkled invoice.

Cons: Uses an intensely bright blue LED that for a power indicator that seems to be all the rage these days.
Small sheets of paper may get pulled in diagonally, though the software seems to be able to deal with this in most cases.

Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The battery life for me has been unbelievable. With general usage you'll have to charge normally but if left idle for a long time it seems to use very little power. I went 3 days without touching the phone and had a battery at 60% when I picked it up on Monday.
Great looking screen
Fast performance

Cons: Three issues:
1. If your hands are at all sweaty, the phone is like trying to hold on to a wet bar of soap. I highly recommend a shell for it.
2. It can get rather warm if you use it a lot. Not a huge issue but it's noticeably warm to the touch after an hour of net usage.
3. Darn near impossible to find a belt clip case for it at this time (August 2012). I did find one that works well but it wasn't easy to find at the time.

Other Thoughts: It may lack the 4G that the US/Canadian models, however I've hardly noticed a difference.

Also the RAM being smaller seems a moot point at this time.
