Apple MacBook Air (2013 Model) Intel Core i5 4GB LPDDR3 128GB SSD 11.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: OS X, reliable, long battery life, affordable software through app store.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This laptop is great. I had the 2013 model with Haswell i7 and 8GB of ram. Once you demo one and own one you know where your money is being spent.

The battery life is phenomenal. I would use it at school and all day at work sometimes without charging it. The processing power is great in such a small package. Converting movies never took long as well as using several VM machines.

This laptop is rugged. Don't let it's refined good looks fool you.

ASRock Z77 OC Formula LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Bios is rock solid with so many features and complexity
- Overclocked i5 IB 3570k to 4.8 stable and pushed 5.0 (liquid)
- Overclocked samsung green memory very well to 2400
- dual bios
- list goes on
- nick shih OC presets provided good reference points
- there is a forum thread dedicated to this board where Nick Shih himself will answer questions if he has time.

Cons: - none

Other Thoughts: This is not a motherboard for a novice user. It was built for the experienced and lends a hand to a beginner.
Once you open the box to the Formula you will see you have a beautiful product. Once you hold it in your hands you know it is of quality. It doesn't flex it's the pcb is so thick.

If you don't know what you're doing you can definitely cause system issues.
- If you take the time to learn and understand all of the intricate details of the bios settings you will be able to have a great enthusiast rig cheaper than most of the more expensive boards.
- The voltages on the presets need to be tuned to your cpu, mem, etc. I found on the presets some of the voltages were too high.
