Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac - OEM

5 out of 5 eggs Unparalleled 02/28/2013

This review is from: Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac - OEM

Pros: It can use your Boot Camp partition, giving you the best of both worlds: run Windows applications seamlessly within Mac OS X, while keeping the option to boot into Windows for full hardware acceleration in the most demanding games. The Full Screen mode is properly integrated with Mountain Lion, and Coherence is easy to switch to. Everything just works.

Cons: It's not made clear how to go about activating Windows in Parallels if you've previously activated in Boot Camp. I had to call Microsoft (it's an automated process, use the dial pad to enter the code that you get in the activation control panel inside Windows).

Other Thoughts: Some games (Darksiders II, Saints Row The Third) have noticeably reduced performance in Parallels compared to Boot Camp, but that's what makes the one-install-two-ways-to-run feature so great. For most apps - even games - I don't notice a performance hit. For example, League of Legends on my Retina MacBook Pro has no problems under Parallels.

CFI Prime 101 CFI-A3089 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Unexpected 02/28/2013

This review is from: CFI Prime 101 CFI-A3089 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nothing is complicated about it. The pre-installed fan is surprisingly quiet.

Cons: Absolutely no frills. Can only mount 80mm fans.

Other Thoughts: The case is extremely light, with thin walls. It's not falling over or anything, and it's going under a desk where it won't be moved until it's time to scrap the machine. It's adequate for my needs.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-5300CL5D-4GBSK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low-profile heatspreaders still fit in my MacBook Pro. Recognized instantly, no compatibility issues.

Cons: No case badge.

Other Thoughts: I have been exclusively using G.Skill memory for my own PCs for at least five years now, and I've never had an issue. What drew me to G.Skill in the first place was the low incidence of failures, and their reputation for addressing failures quickly and satisfactorily.
