ASUS Taichi21 Intel Core i5 3317U(1.70GHz) 4GB 128GB SSD HDD 11.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I wrote a comment earlier, it works great. I have an important discover for those who like bright screens (Read other thoughts). This computer does a great job

Cons: Still the space on the SSD is an issue although there is cloud computing.. and no 3.0 USB? The SSD only has 93GB - 30 between ASUS & Windows 8.. so your down to 60 GB if that. I only installed Chrome, and Office 2013 and I am at 40 GB. No other documents, programs or anything.

Other Thoughts: Brightness. I said in my other comment that it did not stay bright enough.. Well press FN+ A. This turns of the Autosensor and like magic you can adjust your brightness to be brighter! It is bright and vibrant. Check my other post for additional information in regards to performance and ect.

Pros: It is a tablet and a PC, so I am not stuck to just using apps given through the app store. It runs fast, and the touch screen is really responsive. The batter runs for 2-5 hours (depending on use) after the updates have been installed. It isn't heavy at all. If 2.75lbs is heavy, you need to hit the gym my friend.. It is great for on the go stuff such as classrooms, work, ect and it allows some fun with the dual screen aspect. It comes with a stylus pen which is nice. They removed the LAN port, and the VGA to make is slimmer, but they added to the mix a LAN port adapter to USB, and VGA to USB so that you can still use it if needed.

Cons: My first one came with bad ASUS and Microsoft Software, but I returned it to my vendor. I ordered another from here. I wish there was more variance in bright/dim settings. In the day, its just bright enough (depending how bright the area is) and at night it can be little too bright but not bad. It say 128GB SSD, but once it starts up, your at 60-80Gb depending on what you bloatware you decide to keep. I wish the power cord was longer, its 3/4th the length of any other power cable used for my other laptops by ASUS

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 is debatable, but with the touch screen it is a lot easier to get used to. For less frustration with Windows 8, go on YouTube and watch how to close applications, and do daily tasks. I used to hate Win 8 but now its just another OS to me, no love or hate with it. The case it comes with is nice, but felt like I would damage the screen with it, so I bought a ASUS TAICHI Suit for Tablet/Laptop from another online store, and it works great and protects the laptop better. It is an Ultrabook, so if you drop it, it's dead no matter what. The screen does not crack easily, you just cannot open and close it like a mad hulk; be a bit gentle with it.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It keeps my AMD 8 core cool enough to run and on high settings the temp is between 40-50 C

Cons: It is loud on any setting. If you want a room heater, here it is. It ups my room temp by at leasr 10 degrees after 20 min of game play. Also it sounds like siting behind a jet on the high setting; the other settings are okay if u like the sound of squeeking.

Other Thoughts: I give it 4 stars because it works and for the price it beats building custom cooling. But the noise is bypassed by headsets, or loud speekers, or zoning out. Heat temp that it throws out is nice in winter
