ASUS Laptop X551CA-DH31 Intel Core i3 3rd Gen 3217U (1.80 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Dual core i3 for less than $300. Yes, please. In under 30 minutes, I was able to remove the included Toshiba 500GB hard drive and place a Kingston 240GB SSD.

The bios isn't exactly configured to allow SSD, but you can force it to acknowledge the replacement drive through disabling the BIOS fast-start (thus allowing the ASUS logo, etc)

-SSD compatible (Kingston brand) 240GB
-League of Legends runs fine. ~40FPS
-It's not b.u.t.t. ugly.

Cons: If you're looking at it from a standpoint of just a step up from a chromebook you'll be fine. BUT: you won't be able to do processor intensive tasks.

-Very few games will run on this machine.
-Constantly hitting (out of memory) issues with Photoshop, large file manipulation (winrar), MS office.

Might want to increase swap file size at the expense of lowering life span on SSD.

Other Thoughts: You pretty much get what you pay for. Good contender in the netbook / travel notebook / chromebook killer category.

Ncredible N-Tune On-Ear Headphone by Monster - Frost White
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Comfortable, Good Bass Response 02/17/2013

This review is from: Ncredible N-Tune On-Ear Headphone by Monster - Frost White

Pros: I really loved the sound, and for the price you'll get some good HD sound goodness. I works well for gaming, and you hear every note, explosion, monster, arrow, or fireball. I own Sony, Turtle Beach, and Logitech earphones and these have the best bass.

Vocals really pop, for Jazz.

Cons: I have yet to find one, though the frost white seems like it could scratch easily. I'm afraid that since they're not the metallic like some of the higher end earphones they might splinter.

Other Thoughts: If you can avoid the hype of the beats by dre, they're the same manufacturer. With the exception by Beats Exec, Beats Pro, and Studio these should be comparable.

I test drove some earphones such as Sennheiser, and Beats, and these came out ahead.
