This review is from: Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite
Pros: Great for programming. The split doesn't interfere with vim's standard navigation mapping.
Cons: The arrow keys & home/end/insert/delete/page up/page down block have an awkward layout. But, I don't really need any of those for programming in vim.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Until recently, has worked reliably, quietly, and w/o being a massive battery drain.
Cons: It's starting to die.
Other Thoughts: I don't expect laptop hard disks to last any longer than this one has, so that's ok. I'm probably going to be replacing it with another of the same model.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works well. The power to USB ports while the system is sleeping is especially nice for charging my phone. Has plenty of USB ports, other ports.
Works well out-of-the-box with various hardware monitoring systems to report on the thermal sensors, etc. Nice, powerful BIOS configuration.
Cons: Shipped drivers are alright, but some lack polish. Some just aren't very useful. The manual is somewhat helpful when it comes to assembling the system, but was a bit unclear.
Other Thoughts: Some sort of on-board GPU might have been nice, mostly as a "just in case" kinda thing, but that would have sacrificed some of the USB ports I guess.READ FULL REVIEW
