ASUS Laptop X501A-WH01 Intel Celeron B820 (1.7 GHz) 2 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None: Have Tech Certs to back-up this statement

Cons: Windows 8 requires more installed memory than is supplied with this unit and in order to upgrade you must "crack" the case and remove quite a few components to do so. This unit has constantly crashed and I had to take it out of inventory because of loop back issues and the lack of DVD. (My fault for not checking specs more closely).

Other Thoughts: Tried reformatting hard drive in an external enclosure and installing Windows7 to no avail. (Microsoft problem, not Newegg). Will not order another laptop with Windows 8 installed unless it has the ability to be overwritten to Windows 7. Let's get our act together Microsoft; after having issues with Vista you finally had a stable O/S with Win 7. Leave well enough alone!!

4 out of 5 eggs Partition Commander 10/31/2009

This review is from: Avanquest Partition Commander 10

Pros: Haven't used this version as of yet, however an earlier version that I purchased worked perfectly as long as you followed the on screen directions (You could work around the on screen activation). It also allowed me to add a Linux O/S behind Windows XP and Vista.

Cons: The only cons were that you needed to have XP installed first and after a few uses, the autorun directly from CD feature disabled itself and you had to install it directly to XP to use it.

Other Thoughts: As I now have Vista and Windows 7 installed I will be purchasing this product so that I can safely add Linux back on to my desktop; Sorry to all you die hard Windows users**.
