Acer 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Good i7 processor for laptop
-Good build quality
-Decent speakers
-Great keyboard
-Easy to expand/install new hardware
-Good GPU
-Good Funtion key layout

Cons: -1TB HDD is 5200rpm vs 7200rpm
-Only 6 cell battery (9 would be better for a power machine style laptop)
-Keyboard not backlit
-Touchpad a bit large
-Integrated left and right click buttons with touchpad
-The arrow keys are small
-Keyboard is lower than palm rest/touchpad
-Sound jack is too loud; have to listen to music with headphone on 10% volume

Other Thoughts: This is a fast and good laptop for the price. Got this and a SSD for under $1,000. Would work great for moderate gaming and drafting/video editing/photoshop. Pros definitely outweigh the Cons. If your looking for a laptop in the $1200-1300 range this would be a great way to safe some money.

1 out of 5 eggs Cheap board with major issues 03/17/2013

This review is from: ZOTAC X58SLI-A-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: SLI capable
Cheap x58
24 gig ram limit

Cons: No OC. The ram timing on this board can only be viewed and not changed. It also has problems in detecting what the timings should be.

Cheap: my memory slot went out after a few months and have had problems with ram ever since

HD audio port is in the worst possible place. Cant be used if 2 slot graphics card is used

Other Thoughts: Had some potential but failed with placement and bios settings.
Bios is easy to navigate though.
