Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great for programming 06/29/2011

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.

Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

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.

GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.
