"There are many notebook coolers out there. So, how can Jetart differentiate their top Xcool NP5000 portable notebook cooler from the competition? Try an integrated USB hub with four ports! But is that all that is special with this notebook cooler? Find out in our in-depth review of the Jetart Xcool NP5000 portable notebook cooler!"
"Though the Abit KV8 Pro does not have the large number features like drive connectivity on other "Pro" boards have, it makes up for it with the robustness of control through the uGuru feature and a killer price. With a price of just over $90 USD, you get a first class product with some great enthusiast features. To make this whole deal even more enticing, the package comes with rounded cables, and expends with the "fluff" software you so often see in other products. It's clear that Abit has refined their offerings and targeting those who want performance and control without the inflated price."
"The Mars PX915P Pro delivers a complete, quality package at a very reasonable price. Exactly what we expect from Albatron. Upgrading to the LGA775 platform now has an affordable, high quality alternative. Albatron has shown us that there can be a feature rich, good looking motherboard that doesn't break the bank. Hopefully this trend will continue and spread to some of the other brands."
"Due to the release of PCI Express, a warrant is issued for upgrading your current power supply, simply since in most cases your ATX PSU can't handle the demands that come with PCI Express and the new LGA 775 processors. ePower has just recently released a brand new power supply, the Xscale-600 that provides a whopping 600 watts of power, support for AGP Pro, PCI Express, and 20, 24, 8, and 4 pin connectors for your motherboard!"
Time to fire up the modem, behave yourselves brothers and sisters :) - Cheers
