Pros: Got this laptop (very) shortly before leaving for a deployment to Afghanistan (where I currently am kickin' it). I wanted something with a good bit of storage space (even though I have an external HD), enough RAM I could have photoshop open while watching old episodes of Top Gear or what-have-you, and an extended (numpad) keyboard. Got all that and a sweet graphics card for a lot less than the top of my budget, so what's not to like? It's been great so far, and I *MAY* end up increasing the RAM just for shiggles at some point to keep it going even longer.
I'm not a *HUGE* gamer by any means; just the occasional FPS, non-online (the internet out here is nowhere close to good enough for it, not that i'm a big fan of it in the first place...just not my thing), but it handles that with room to spare.
It does get warm fairly quickly, but in fairness, it gets full of dust a lot quicker than the average laptop that isn't in a deployed environment. ;)
All in all, it's everything I wanted and even a little more.
Cons: None that I can think of, MAYBE only coming with 8 gigs of RAM but honestly that's not really even a very big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Few, if any. I guess if you like bright blue lights, this is the product for you.
Cons: The major disappointment was that this case wouldn't recognize either of my IDE drives from my previous box. I at first thought the drives were tanked, but a friend loaned me a device that plugged into the IDE cable slot on the back and converted it to SATA. Both drives were instantly recognized by my system on startup and I was able to recover all my music and photos.
Other Thoughts: Will be contacting newegg for an RMA for this product. First time I've had a product from newegg not meet expectations, but Newegg's service has yet to disappoint.READ FULL REVIEW
