Pros: Very durable. Feels like military grade case! Bright screen. Good keyboard. The function keys are great, speakers are good enough. Power options are good and the battery life is oh so sweet compared to the Toshiba I just put in the closet.

Cons: Microphone is terrible. Locks up for 5-15 seconds randomly since the day I took it out of the box. USB inputs are ridiculously TIGHT. Speakers are a bit quiet at full volume.

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop because I did not want to dedicate any keyboard space to a numeric keypad like most laptop configurations out there. Happily the company with the right layout was Lenovo! It's a strong machine. If anyone has any insight on the 10 second freeze-up, I'll owe you a beer.

SAMSUNG P2770HD Rose Black 27

Pros: This is an exceptional monitor. Several reviews mention some blurring when using HDMI - I had the same thing at first but some fiddling under the Settings (especially changing from Dynamic to Standard or Movie) took care of the issue. I tried DVI as well, and it's true - the picture is just as good as HDMI. (I probably would have left it on DVI b/c I'm lazy, but I didn't want to have a second cable for speakers!)

It's bright bright bright. So nice. So many settings, you can even control the brightness of the 'button's on the front of the panel. Oh yes and about those buttons... see cons.

The base isn't particularly stable - but it's not unstable. Looks like they spent the stand R&D money on the screen instead to achieve this price point. Good choice!

Blacks are super black, no color surprises, no edge glowing. I bought this to play Skyrim and it's as good as being there - no lag at all, no ghosting on quick in-game moves. Completely immersive

Cons: The buttons on the front are not traditional buttons, they are a touch-sensitive surface are like an i-Phone. No reason to subtract an egg here, but they do take some getting used to. Once you've got the hang of it, they are perfectly responsive.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is the best monitor I could find and it is AWESOME.

Pros: All good. BIg cards, little cards. Works just as it should.

Cons: Just what I need - another dongle floating around the house.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again.
