NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS116) - Lifetime Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, reliable and low power

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this switch back in 2008 to replace an old cisco 24port unit to reduce the power draw on my home network, and it has been super reliable, never given me a lick of trouble.

SAMSUNG 840 EVO mSATA 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-MTE120BW
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Installed in my wife's Lenovo T520 3 or 4 months ago, works great and SUPER fast!

Cons: SSDs are still a bit too expensive for my taste.

Other Thoughts: I went with an mSATA SSD because we were able to keep the traditional hard drive in place for storage capacity.

ThinkPad Tablet 2 (367927U) Intel Atom Z2760 2GB Memory 64GB Flash Memory 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Light weight, long battery life, plenty of power for web browsing and tablet apps, and capable of running (albeit slowly) full "desktop" applications on the go in an ultra mobile form factor.

Cons: Desktop apps run slowly with the Atom processor and only 2GB of RAM, however this is a decent trade off for its light weight, battery life, and cost.

I also wish Lenovo's accessory keyboard offering was a bit better, its just a bluetooth keyboard with a kick stand, it doesn't attach to the tablet in any way, it seems like it would have been trivial to add some kind of clip to keep the tablet from flopping out of the keyboard and crashing to the floor. I really expected better from Lenovo with how robust and durable their ThinkPads are.

Other Thoughts: I was provided one of these from my employer, I am now toying with the idea of buying one for personal use rather than the iPad I had planned on getting. I like the ability to run regular desktop apps when there is no tablet app up to the task and its interface is much more polished and finished compared to android devices I have used. Seems like it could be a real contender to the iPad if more apps take off on the platform.
