Acer Laptop Aspire AS7560G-7622 AMD A6-Series A6-3420M (1.5 GHz) 6 GB Memory 500 GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7670M 17.3

Pros: - Full desktop power, with a much smaller size.
- Full 10-key
- Spiffy textured top and face.

Cons: - Bit sluggish when starting new tasks, but it is, of course, a laptop.
- Bunch of useless programs preinstalled.
- Not enough useful programs preinstalled.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this laptop if you're looking for average desktop power, but smaller, because seriously, this thing is huge for a laptop. The pictures don't do it justice. It's like the middleground between a desktop and a laptop. Or maybe if a laptop ate a desktop for lunch.

I'm using mine as a software development workstation, and it runs the environment emulators and IDEs and whatnot just fine. The battery lasts about as long as one might expect for a laptop this size.

When mine arrived, the wireless card wasn't recognized by the system, at all. Eventually, I took the back off and found that the wireless card was just sorta flopping around the inside, stuck loosely to the main board with a piece of scotch tape. After reseating it in its wholly badly placed socket, the wireless was recognized, and I went about my day.

Pros: - Solid Mid-High Performance on most games.
- High value card for a low price
- Performs better than early models of later generations.

Cons: - Don't expect to run games on Ultra settings.
- Fan needs regular cleaning to keep the noise down.
- 3 monitors can't be run simultaneously.

Other Thoughts: I just bought a second one for a friend instead of giving them a newer generation card, so that should speak some towards its quality.

Battlefield 3 can be run on High settings, although the frame rate might jerk when things get really hectic.

The fan does need to be cleaned more often than most video cards just to keep it quiet. This isn't due to a bad fan or anything, just the layout of the heatsink in relation to the fan. When dust starts redirecting the air, it can make a whine. This won't really affect the heat profile of the card, it just gets annoying as it echos around the inside of your case.

5 out of 5 eggs A simple solution 09/09/2012

This review is from: Sunbeam Multi-Fan Power Port

Pros: - Does exactly what you imagine it would do: It adds places for more fans.
- It's black, so it matches most color themes.

Cons: - The double sided tape is weak. Be sure to hold it firmly for a while.
- No way to control speed.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend getting some velco tape, and securing it to the case with that so it can be removed at will. Doubly so if you're choosing to mount it inside a disk cage.

The lack of speed control shouldn't bother you if you're using low-noise fans, or have a low-noise case. Otherwise, just know that the fans will be going at full speed (depending on voltage) at all times.
