5 out of 5 eggs First Impressions 10/12/2012

This review is from: Acer TimelineU M5-481TG-6814 14" Ultrabook

Pros: High quality, such a solid feel its incredible. Everything from the tactile feel of the keyboard clicking all the way to the solid feeling case. Absolutely no screen wobble, you raise the screen and it just stays right where you put it. The speed is impressive for such a lightweight portable device. Also everyone else is correct about the fan, I have been on this thing for 2 hours surfing the web and what not and I haven't even heard the fan kick on yet. Back lit keyboard is also very nice. I could keep going on about this note book but you really just got to see it to believe, I suggest you do. First impressions are usually the most important thing, and I'm blown away by this impression.

Cons: Only con I can think of isn't really Acer's fault. A lot of people were suggesting upgrading the RAM and I decided to follow suit. Let me tell you though this is not the easiest laptop to upgrade and you have to be EXTREMELY careful. First it doesn't have easy access ports you can remove like normal laptops. The whole back comes off as one piece. Second when removing the back I discovered half the computer is connect to the removable backplate by thin ribbon cables which you could easily tear just by pulling allittle. Being careful though this was a pretty easy upgrade and really I cant complain about how this thing was built. Excellent Quality.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this wednesday night, it shipped out thursday morning I got it friday. That was with normal shipping to NY state. I love Newegg, they are so fast and have great standards and practices. I know these things are circumstantial and are subject to change. But they have an excellent track record, I have used them for almost 10 years and I have never needed to complain, if something wasn't right they make it right no matter what. I've tried the competition and there is a reason why I still use Newegg.

Pros: Easy as can be. If you can follow basic instructions this product makes some awesome rice. Quality feels very solid. I bought this for my bachelor pad and it makes so much rice I usually have some left over for another day or two. I have even some of that instant rice like uncle ben's box rice. It still cooked it just as it should. Enjoy!

Cons: I can't think of anything.

EVGA GeForce 8600 GTS DirectX 10 512-P2-N773-AR 512MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Beautiful resolution, supported my 1080P HDTV and the software from NVidea has really nice features. Games like Rome: Total War ran at highest reso. highest detail and had no hang ups even in huge battles.

Cons: Make sure you have a plug and play monitor, I spent quite a bit on cords getting my hd hooked up to it, and ontop of that the DVI to HDMI adapter has compatibility issues.

Other Thoughts: It worked on and off with my HDTV but if you have a PnP monitor that you can use to hook up your hd it should work smoothly even if you are using DVI/HDMI converter. Happy playing.
