Pros: Setup is very easy, just stick the stand into the monitor and plug it in. No dead pixels when I turned it on and all of the games I play on it look beautiful.
Cons: Not height adjustable. It really isn't a big deal for me since I can just raise my chair or elevate it.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a 19" to this monitor and I can honestly say the difference is night and day! I'm a programmer so having a large monitor is essential so I can see all of my code. I would recommend purchasing this monitor. I bought it at $109.99 for Black Friday.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My windows boot time SIGNIFICANTLY faster since installing this SSD. Installation was a breeze. Definitely worth the upgrade if you can afford it.
Cons: 120GB isn't very much space and goes quick. If you have extra money, invest in a larger capacity.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Very quick start-up
- Windows 8.1 (explained below)
- Battery life excellent
- Shipping also very fast, despite being shipped by Ontrac
- Processor is great for every-day browsing as well as program compilation and execution
Cons: The shift button on the right side is about half the size as the one on the left because of the arrow keys. Because of this, I've had to readjust the way I use it. Not enough of a problem for me to knock an egg--I've adjusted just fine.
Other Thoughts: I've been using the laptop for a week and I haven't had any problems with it thus far. I was looking for a laptop that I could use for work and it runs very smoothly, with absolutely no stuttering whatsoever.
I mentioned above that Windows 8.1 is a pro because it is faster than Windows 7 and its experience is drastically changed if you install a start menu such as StartIsBack or Start8. It's well worth the $3-$5 price tag, and it's basically Windows 7 2.0. Don't let the fact that this laptop comes with Windows 8.1 keep you from buying it!
All-in-all, this is a very solid laptop and perfect for every day use.
