5 out of 5 eggs Overheating Issues 11/29/2013

This review is from: Xbox One 500GB Console with Kinect

Pros: It's large and it is glossy and it is ventilated and it is really heavy.

Cons: This stupid thing made that stupid clicking sound so I threw it on the ground and when I put it together again it worked.... O.o BUT then it had overheating issues and it;s like -2 C in my home. So I restarted and shook it a little bit with the disk still in the drive and now it's working beautifully.

Other Thoughts: I cannot explain why it still works, but kuddos to Microshoft.

Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W BX80623i72700K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It has everything you need. Intel has to release something really incredible to make Sandy Bridge worth upgrading from because I've had the 2600K (2700K replaced it) for 26 months and it HAS NOT slowed down.

Cons: Nothing except, maybe that it doesn't support PCIE 3.0, but good luck bottlenecking 2.0.

Other Thoughts: Man, this really is the best series that intel ever released. It did a great job of replacing the original i7s and it hasn't had any competition since.

Pros: Great boot times, extremely responsive, the dual screens when you're showing things to people in the room are really convenient.

Cons: Weaker processor, small SSD, only Intel HD graphics, and the part that upsets me the most is the RANDOM STREAK of SUPER BRIGHT pixels that curves diagonally on the touchscreen side of the laptop, will be looking to exchange for another, hopefully, but no response from the manufacturer. Guess, I could try to negotiate with newegg.

Other Thoughts: The pixels are really bright, they show the color, but it's just really bright. A nice large streak resembling a cut. Unnoticeable when the screen is off or the colors are dark.
