Elonex Soliton Safari

"As technology gets cheaper, smaller and lighter it gets increasingly incorporated into our everyday lives. Laptops, in particular, face a new challenge because of this: durability. It’s no good having the latest and greatest notebook if it can’t withstand a few knocks, the odd coffee cup rested on its lid and once in a blue moon a short tumble to the floor."
-Gordon Kelly, Trusted Reviews

NVIDIA SLI & ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Performance Showcase

"There's a certain allure in being able to make the claim that you can double the performance of anything. All too often, overzealous marketing campaigns in the high-tech field have made a "theoretical" claim of this sort, all the while falling well short in real-world performance metrics.  The PC graphics industry has had its hand at blurring this line, as well, but the last new architecture launches from both NVIDIA and ATi have in many cases actually delivered on this bold statement as compared to their respective previous-gen product offerings."
-Dave Altavilla, Hot Hardware

Issue #3 of NN (nerd news)

Asus A8N-SLI

"This board is loaded with all the latest features, including a pair of Gigabit Ethnernet slots and lots of tweaking options, but the big news, of course, is the dual graphics capability. Between the two PCI-E x16 slots, the A8N-SLI has a card that plugs into a connector that looks much like the SO-DIMM connectors used for laptop expansion RAM. The mobo ships with the card in the single video card position, where it routes all 16 lanes of PCI Express connectivity to graphics slot one. However, for SLI, one may turn the card around 180 degrees and reinstall it. In dual video card mode, eight PCI Express lanes are directed to graphics slot one, and eight lanes to slot two."
-Scott Wasson, The Tech Report

-Mike Magee, The Inquirer

Swiftech H2O-120 rev. 3 Liquid Cooling System

"The quality of this product is top-notch, which is something that I have come to expect from Swiftech. Everything that was required to assemble and install the unit was packaged in the box. The printed and provided instructions cover each step of installation very clearly which could get even the first time builder through the project was ease."
- Michael, Club OC

Thermaltake Shark Case

"The Shark is a great case. Although it has its flaws, it was truly a pleasure working with it. We are thrilled to see 120mm fans standard, as well as their method for installing the external drives. Sometimes a product will sound great in terms of its specifications, but will fail to deliver on the slight things. Fortunately the Shark isn’t one of those products."
-Will Ness, Cool Tech Zone

Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L Motherboard

" The new ATI RX330 chipset looks to be full of potential, its memory compatibility is even being validated by the company. Currently Gigabyte has exclusive manufacturing rights to this chipset, so if you want an ATi Radeon RX330 based motherboard, the only vendor that can currently supply it is Gigabyte."
