Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT25664AA80A
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This is good memory at a reasonable price. The huge pro is crucial, which has terrific customer service.

Cons: I have four modules of this RAM installed on PCs in my office. One of them was causing problems, but Crucial handled the return and replacement in a professional manner and I was very satisfied: bad RAM happens but dealing with it properly is key to keeping my business.

ASUS Laptop G Series G53SW-XN1 Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2630QM (2.00 GHz) 6 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 15.6

Pros: I purchased this laptop following a tremendous amount of research and I am completely satisfied: This is an amazing deal for a laptop with such excellent components. The processor, video card, hard drive, & screen are all top notch making this an amazing value. It runs very smoothly. The boot up time and performance are impeccable. It has performed admirably on my benchmarks and looks great playing games and videos.

In addition to all that, the laptop is very solidly built. I am very satisfied with its physical appearance and feel. The keyboard works excellently, has the perfect amount of resistance and is back-lit with the press of a button.

The cooling system works exceptionally well. The heat really does get vented out that back of the system, keeping it cool and quiet on my lap.

While there is some "bloatware" included, Asus also includes a great CD which can install all pre-loaded drivers and software if you want to do a clean install.

I highly recommend this lap

Cons: This thing is very large, larger than the 15.6" screen size suggests. It is also heavy: if you are looking for something portable, look elsewhere.

The DVD drive seems pretty flimsy and is quite loud (both of which are common on laptops). It does seem to work pretty quickly.

The bloatware: while Asus does include a CD with all the drivers and software on it, in case you want to do a fresh install of windows, it does not include the operating system disc. Furthermore, it includes no documentation on what the software included actually does so you will need to do some research to see what you want to keep and what you can remove (some of the software/drivers are required to use the back-lit keyboard, and power-setting hot keys, etc).

This laptop does not include a restore DVD. You will be prompted to create one when you first boot up. You will need 5 or 6 DVDs to accomplish this.
