Acer Laptop TravelMate NX.V91AA.015 Intel Core i3 4th Gen 4010U (1.7 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good hardware
All Intel from what I can tell so Linux support is there
~4-5 hours of battery life
easy to install a new Operating System

Cons: Linpus Linux
Included directions are for Windows 8
No offline documentation provided on how to boot gui and Linpus does not post an install guide in english
This laptop does not boot to a GUI it will instead boot to the command line installer linpus linux uses.
Linpus linux repositories are severaly lacking

Other Thoughts: I know I listed a lot of cons, but thats purely with Linpus Linux, if you switch it to a different linux distro it would be amazing. If Acer did that I would rate it 5 stars right away.

MSI 790X-G45 AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

This review is from: MSI 790X-G45 AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Excellent board
Easy OC switch makes overclocking easier (no need to go into the BIOS)
Comes with a Core Unlocking Utility (you can also disable cores as well)

My computer seems twice as fast now.

Cons: non that I can tell og quite yet except they shipped DHL to me (I ordered open box verzion)

Other Thoughts: I ordered this open box where there was a chance I wouldn't get anything with the board, well I got the driver disk, Crossfire connector, and everything else.

I remember MSI used to be an offbrand but nowadays they're starting to be a brand name company.

4 out of 5 eggs MSI 790X-G45 06/05/2010

This review is from: MSI 790X-G45 AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Seems solid
Easy OC switch is kinda cool and makes my overclocking easier
You can actually unlock and disable CPU cores with this thing
A very good to look at compared with the Gigabyte boards I've owned (neow yellow and green anyone?)

Cons: It came in the bottom of the box filled with paper, and we all know UPS tendency's of "mishandling" packages.

Only supports up to DDR3 1200 over clocking

Other Thoughts: I have yet to plus this board in since I'm waiting on my memory to come in shipped via DHL so it's gonna take a while.

Its came in the bottom of the box and the UPS guy was kind enough to leave the box in a puddle on a rainy day
