Apple MC975LL/A  2.3 GHz 15.4
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs The evolution of the laptop 07/03/2012

This review is from: Apple MC975LL/A 2.3 GHz 15.4" MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Pros: Display, Form factor, Trackpad, Keyboard, Build quality

Cons: App support for retina will be trickling in / working out the kinks of a new technology, Making due without some legacy technology and ports (not an issue for most these days)

Other Thoughts: I'm not a fanboy. I've owned many desktops and laptops over the years (mostly windows based). The Macbook Pro with Retina Display (or rMBP) might be the best PC I've had to date. It's a premium product that won't appeal to everyone, but it provides a pretty remarkable blend of form and function. There are plenty of thin and light notebooks around these days, but most of them sacrifice CPU cores and a dedicated GPU. This machine sacrifices neither, with a quad core CPU and a formidable (for a machine of it's size) GPU.

It's remarkably thin, incredibly well built, has a revolutionary display, and is an overall joy to use for work and play. Things will only get more interesting as retina technology becomes more mainstream.

I would certainly recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggs Packs a punch! 03/23/2012

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-TU200B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Unique
- Small footprint
- Fun to build
- Handle!

Cons: Not really cons, but noteworthy:
- Requires some planning
- I removed the HD cage for my build, but with it installed, it would be a considerably tighter fit.
- If you don't have a disk drive in, the flip down cover sort of flops inward and looks shoddy. Not worth deducting an egg as I'm sure most people will opt for one.

Other Thoughts: I've probably bought about $15k worth of parts from newegg over the past 10 years, and this is the first review I've written. That's the sort of case this is :)

i5 2500k (humming along at 4.1ghz)
asrock 1155 z68-i
8gb gskill 1600
crucial m4 256 ssd
xfx 7950
corsair hx-650 modular psu

From the onset, I was planning to do this build with no spinning hard drive and no optical disk drive. I removed the hard drive cage and left it out. This really opened things up and made it a really pain-free build. I was even able to pull off some reasonable cable management. The 7950 (which is 10.5" long) fit with room to spare. I had a lot of fun putting it together and it sort of hearkened me back to my first computer build. It's a very well designed, wonder-inspiring case. Buy it :)

ASUS A8N-VM CSM 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have had it for about 4 months and it works great. I basically just installed it and let it be and it has given me 0 issues in 4 months. Chugs right along.

Cons: No onboard bottle opener.

Other Thoughts: Buy it you shlub
