Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's FAST. I get to the Metro UI in 3 seconds from the time I turn it on.
It's FLEXIBLE. In laptop mode, it's a 15" beast with a touch screen. In Stand Mode, it's like a small LCD TV.
It's LIGHTWEIGHT. For a 15" machine, it weighs 5 pounds while most machines in it's class weigh over 6.
It LASTS. The battery life from the Core i5 Haswell CPU is just amazing.
It's LOUD. Dolby v4 audio fills the living room, truck or whatever I am in with high-quality sound even at high volume.

Cons: Low-resolution (1366x768) screen. But that's my only con for this. It still beats all other machines in it's class (15" 2 in 1 Ultrabook).

Other Thoughts: I received mine as a prize from Lenovo with clementine orange trim instead of silver. You will likely have to turn off "tap to click" when you first set up this computer, because the touch pad will be very jumpy if you don't.

The touch screen supports 10-point (2-hand) multi-touch, which is great for photo and video editing.

Overall, this machine needs much higher reviews than it is getting... I believe some of the reviewers at C|NET and Laptop Magazine are being really nit-picky about this machine... they might just be biased towards the smaller, 4-mode IdeaPad Yoga, the 3-pound brother of this machine.

IOGEAR GCS22U 2-Port USB KVM Switch with Cables and Remote

5 out of 5 eggs Make your life easier... 10/03/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS22U 2-Port USB KVM Switch with Cables and Remote

Pros: Works as advertised
No wall wart
Compact size
Allows 2 computers to be on the same desk using the same keyboard, mouse and monitor

Cons: Again, what cons?

Other Thoughts: I bought this so I could test the machine I have started rebuilding (an old Gateway V733 Pro that I found in the trash) and use my regular desktop (one I built myself in 2008) at the same time. It just works well for this purpose! I'm glad I bought this!

SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter

5 out of 5 eggs Great for connecting new laptop HDDs to older motherboards 10/03/2013

This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter

Pros: Ease of installation

Cons: What cons?

Other Thoughts: Much like the Antec Basiq 350 power supply, this was an easy upgrade for the old Gateway machine that I rebuilt last night. I can now connect a SATA drive to the old IDE channels on the motherboard (though the performance won't be the same as a new motherboard with dedicated SATA ports). It worked as advertised.
