Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3400832AS 400GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Installing Windows 7 was quick, and it seems to run flawlessly after a few months. Solid product.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to replace a broken hard drive, this will be your best bet for your buck. I might recommend a Samsung hard drive if you want something even more reliable(or doesn't crash), but this works great too.

SAMSUNG Laptop NP300U1A-A01US Intel Core i3 2nd Gen 2357M (1.30 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 11.6

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The speed is noticeably greater than most notebooks/netbooks of this size. The i3 along side the Intel 3000 hd card work better than I thought it would.

Why did I buy this laptop?
1) I wanted to replace my Acer Atom-based netbook. The processing speeds for this Samsung notebook have been extremely nice.

2) I needed it for school work apart from home. Taking notes on a netbook turned into a necessity during my first 2 years of college.

3) I wanted to play games socially. I enjoy playing games with friends in a social aspect (LAN Parties), and my gaming rig made it really hard to arrange such events. With this notebook, am now able to quickly run most modern games on medium settings. I was really surprised to see this computer run League of Legends and Dota 2 as well as it did (read 'Other thoughts' for details).

At $380 dollars, this was a steal (original being $700)

Cons: None so far. Perhaps the battery will die quicker due to its powerful cpu/gpu usage. To be honest, I really don't care to much for the battery.

Other Thoughts: Businessmen:
This device may be an overkill on the tools you'll be needing, but if you've every used an Atom CPU netbook before and hated it, this is the product for you. The screen size is perfect and the power is nice.

For you college/highschool kids:
Trying to find a cheap powerful notebook? Look no further...seriously. I spent many days comparing prices, and found nothing. Any device that included an i3 processor instantly reached the 800-1,000 dollar range.

For gamers:
I built my first rig about 3 years ago, and felt like I would never come back to the laptop scene again. After a while, I began to miss the days of being able to easily game at a friends house. I tested a few games and here are the results on the fps capabilities:

League of Legends: 60fps with shadows off and high textures.

Dota 2/Left4Dead2: 35-45fps low settins

Minecraft (v1.3.1): 15-40...I blame the new patch

Garrysmod: 60-90 fps.

That's all folks, I hope this was helpful towards your inv

4 out of 5 eggs Great for games...but 08/01/2009

This review is from: ABS AZ1 Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound Light Weight Circumaural USB Gaming Headset

Pros: When i'm playing games such as Counter-Strike: Source, or other great valve titles, the audio surround sound works unbelievable. I can hear everything everywhere.

Cons: This may be a computer fixable issue, but there is an uncontrollable popping noise when listening to simple audio tasks such as YouTube. It has no pops for my games, just simple applications which confuses me.

Other Thoughts: e-mail me if you have the answer to that issue
