Very good keyboard, Stable performance under load
The ThinkPad Edge E431 may not be exciting, but it's a solid performer. It's a business-grade notebook with lots of power, excellent build quality, adequate battery life, and a strong keyboard. It's also quite durable and light enough (thanks to its ABS plastic frame) to fill a bag without overburdening its owner. The clever proprietary charging/OneLink Dock port design is also a nifty addition if you're frequently in search of better docking options.
Portable OneLink Dock, Good durability
The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 provides an impressive offering for its price. Starting at $500 (NBR's configuration was priced at $648) users will receive a durable attractive chassis, with excellent usability thanks to Lenovo's high quality keyboard and touchpad, along with ample performance capable of handling most business tasks with relative ease.
The only area where the E431 suffers is portability.
Excellent spill-resistant keyboard
The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 isn't without its sacrifices, but with a starting price for a business laptop that starts at less than $550, that's to be expected. You'll have to pay extra for solid-state cache or storage. And you'll have to live without a touchscreen, HD resolution, or backlit keys. And the screen's color and contrast washes out quickly if you aren't sitting dead center.
Large screen on a budget
Calling the Dell Inspiron 17R a desktop replacement is a little unfair, since it's not really in the league of the performance desktops that dominate the category. The Inspiron 17R is a solid machine if you're looking for a large screen on a budget, but you have to be aware that it won't perform like similarly sized machines, such as the Origin EON17-S, or the Alienware M17x.
Does what I need it to
I bought this pc mainly because I ditched cable recently and needed a pc with a powerful processor to be able to convert and transmit streaming video to my roku box. The older model compaq that I had simply wasn't getting the job done but this beast does it without a hitch. The 17" screen is beautiful and the colors look great. It's really light and built sturdy and thus far i've had no issues with it.
Very keen price, Good screen for multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 17R isn't the notebook to go for if you need a true road warrior machine. It's too large and heavy, with merely mediocre battery life. But if you're after a system for general usage that is particularly good for group audiovisual presentations, even away from the mains socket, this is a serious contender.
Thin and portable
Although it has all the ingredients for a good ultrabook or tablet, like an agile processor, svelte chassis, and attractive screen, the Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2120 misses the mark by trying to be both. The end result is a so-so ultrabook and a bulky tablet that converge through an awkward sliding hinge mechanism.
Display Is Exposed Even When Closed
Toshiba tried to offer a unique hybrid laptop experience with the Satellite U925t but it just has a few too many small faults or just doesn't quite compare for price and features against most of the other hybrids available. About the best thing going for it is the fast boot times and data loads from its solid state drive. Beyond this, it has less resolution, lower running times, more noise and a keyboard and trackpad that just aren't as good as its competition.
Heavy but useful
I think this device will appeal to techies, but also be suitable for people who need more computing power and the Windows platform. A real estate agent would find it useful, and it would be good for business presentations when traveling (it could lay flat on a surface) - provided the business projector supports HDMI, of course. The higher resolution camera on the rear of the screen would make a nice video conferencing solution, using Skype and the HDMI output.
Convertible tablet design, Very fast boot times
We like the overall design of the Toshiba Satellite U925t, especially its soft-touch rubberized bottom that helps keep a solid hold on the device. It measures 12.8 x 8.4 x 0.75-inches (wdh) and weighs 3.2-pounds. While it may seem lightweight for a laptop, it is heavy for a tablet, especially if you try to carry it around with you in your hands for awhile.
Relatively low-res 1366x768 display doesn't help
There are a few cases where the Satellite would make sense for you. If you needed a huge, durable tablet to carry around your office and still be a fully functional laptop, this could work. It is slightly more comfortable to use in that form than the XPS 12 or Yoga 13. But for comparable prices, you could go with those machines to get a better screen or laptop experience.
Overall, this laptop has exceeded my expectations; the 6GB memory is exceptional, the i3 is fast enough for graphic work and programs were easy to install, media player runs beautifully, 750GB HD gives room to maneuver, and the screen is awesome! I am more than pleased with this purchase.
Contrast-rich display, Decent gaming performance
The Pavilion g6-2200sg is a good deal and a decent notebook for all looking for a cheap general purpose notebook. It delivers fair system performance, which suffices for most users, works quietly under low load and comes with a contrast-rich display. Furthermore, the Pavilion is also interesting for gamers who do not like to spend 800 to 1000 Euro ( $1050 to $1300) for a fancy gaming computer.
Great monitor for the price
I bought two of these for my new PC build, I am a student so i wanted a dual monitor setup so i could do research on one screen while writing on the other and i must say i am very happy with these. Screens look great and again if your looking for a dual monitor setup that wont break the bank these are a nice option.
Build Quality, Battery, Price
The HP Pavilion g6 is a good budget notebook. While there aren't a ton of standout features and extras, it also doesn't have any major issues. Budget notebooks need to cut corners somewhere to come in at an affordable price and HP chose the right places to trim when they made the g6. Students and average home users in need of an affordable notebook should look at the g6, especially as part of back to school and Black Friday promotions.
Good interfaces, Quiet
Lenovo offers an entry-level computer for a low price with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. Those who are looking for a laptop for typing and that handles all types of Internet communication and can play most video formats will be on the safe side with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. An alert consumer will have noticed that this conclusion is very similar to the one about the Lenovo G585.
Quite Good for an Entry Level Computer
I personally like the computer a lot for its speed and performance. I find it as an inexpensive option for people looking for a computer for basic tasks like word processing, surfing the web, videochatting, etc.
Windows 8 is not as bad once you get used to it. You don't get the red X to close the programs; now, you drag the top of the window to the lower left corner and the program will close. I got used to it after 2-3 hours of using it + watching a tutorial on YouTube.
Well worth it!
I purchased this laptop from BestBuy for 250$ on Black Friday. I did my research before i bought a new PC, I've upgraded 1 laptops and built 2 desktops. My old laptop is just outdated. Not saying i know everything about PC's but i know enough to get in trouble. This is a laptop people. One that is meant for web surfing and mobility. Its less then 400$ brand new and that's not even a bad price. Factory with 4G RAM and a 2.4GHz proc. not bad for a cheap laptop.
Good Laptop Great Price
So I decided I would do a review on here even though I didn't purchase this product from Amazon.
I bought this computer from Fry's Electronics today for significantly less than advertised on Amazon or anywhere else for that matter. I picked it up for $315.00 USD with tax, so it seems like I got a really good deal.
I'm very impressed with the overall feel and use of the computer, 4 Gigs of ram is a huge plus.
