Acer Laptop Aspire AS1830-3595 Intel Core i3 1st Gen 330UM (1.20 GHz) 2 GB Memory 250 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 11.6

Pros: size. nice build quality. screen quality. 3g modem built in.

Cons: wifi card lacks 5ghz capability. lots of bloatware. smaller battery than the 'normal' 1830 timeline machines.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a small laptop with decent performance, for not a lot of money. This seemed to fit the bill, so I ordered from newegg, and had the typical great delivery experience.

The machine is quite nice. Form factor and weight is great. It's not a Macbook Air - but not far from it. Touchpad takes a bit to get used to since there's no delineation between it and the palm rest - but it works fine once you get used to it. Screen quality is quite good - very bright and decent contrast. Keyboard is fine. The machine is configured with a single 2gb memory stick, so it was easy to bring it up to 4gb. Default Windows install has a ton of bloatware. I ended up doing a install from scratch to get rid of it. The wifi card only supports 144 mb/sec 2.4ghz N. However, the HDD, Wifi, 3g and memory are all easily accessible for upgrading. All in all, quite pleased - especially for the price of a netbook. The brown color is quite attractive, too...

Nippon Labs Premium 0.5M (1.64 ft.) SATA Cable with 2 Right Angle Connectors for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive 1.64ft Model SATA-0.5RR 1.64 feet

Pros: it works

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I bought these without reading the reviews because they were cheap. Then I read the reviews and saw they were not small, and the heads were 'backwards' and thought I'd ended up making a mistake. It ended up being perfect, though, as I had more than enough room between my blu ray drive and cpu cooler for the head to fit, and needed the cable to route 'up' to clear memory modules.

GIGABYTE GA-H55M-S2H LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: it works. it's cheap. lots of ports.

Cons: driver install process was a bit troublesome

Other Thoughts: picked this for an HTPC build with a i3 and it works well. Install was easy. Lots of ports for USB connections and the HDMI works perfectly.

I did have issues getting the driver install disc to work properly, and my startup time is still longer than expected (win7 x64), so I think I've still got some kind of conflict, though everything shows fine in device manager. The computer runs fine, so I'm not too stressed about it though I may try to reinstall windows and try it again.
