ASUS Laptop G Series G2S-B1 Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 (2.40 GHz) 2 GB Memory 200 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 17.0

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: What a machine! Bought it 8 yeas eight years ago and it is still running!

Cons: Vista was a terrible thing to do to this machine. ASUS should have set it up with XP. Vista was one of MS's worst ever operating systems. I hope someday we can all have the option of using a user friendly version of Linux and get away from the tyranny of MS OSs bad releases

Other Thoughts: Yup this review is happening now September 2015! I bought this in 2007! AND it is still relevant to this day!
Plays the "Valve" games on Steam, HALO etc. great on web surfing still and what a display compared to today's TV low rez. solutions forced on us by the "plastic box" players. We PC folks forgot how great 1920x1200 on a 17" screen looks. Lets think a bit, VHS over Beta, 4K instead of high refresh rates and better color correction. TV resolution for monitors. Trying to turn PCs into plastic toy boxes. Are we "de-evolving"?

ASUS Laptop X555LB-NS51 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD FHD NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M 15.6

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheaply made.

Other Thoughts: For the performance of this laptop I consider it an OK value
BUT the quality of it makes it hard to believe that ASUS would sell such a poorly constructed device. I feel the keyboard will eventually fail from flexing so much. The monitor is poor in everyway. no real upgrade path as the specs say it can only handle a max. of 8GB of ram. To change anything else will void your warranty. AND I cannot believe ASUS did not even include a recovery disk for the OS, let alone a Win 8.1 disk! That alone stunned me. I have never bought a computer of any kind that did not have one or the other. You folks better do a full OS backup on a DVR disk in case of total failure and also a recovery disk as well. Jeez ASUS I'm disappointed in you. Glad I bought it for my wife as she just wants it to surf the web, watch online media and do video chats, which this will do OK.

5 out of 5 eggs Good news for Win 8 for a change 05/08/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GBU321 Long Range Rate Bluetooth USB Adapter

Pros: Newest software update supports Windows 8... amazing
Discovered devices through 4 walls! I didn't know Bluetooth could do that.... Nice surprise..
I haven't used it long enough yet to give any results on reliability, performance. etc. Just wanted to give a "heads-up" to people that may not consider this as it did not support Win 8, Install was smooth and trouble free for me

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: Used on my older but still strong, XFX nForce 780i 3-Way SLI Motherboard
