Is the high quality packaging important in regards to how the mobo performs? I thought the packaging was to convince adolescent kids to buy the product? That would be important to the seller perhaps but not so much to the buyer.

I fully understand that this target market responds favorably to T&A and violence so I understand the undertone to the box but I find it amusing that the packaging is considered by some to be a product "asset". Really?

Yes I have actually seen people post how great they believed a product was based on the pretty box it came in or by the fact it has a handle on the box. I guess if you walk around carrying your mobo or PSU all day long this may be an asset, but most folks actually INSTALL the mobo/PSU in a PC case and use them to run a PC.

The mentality is really quite amusing.

They should have the list like they have on cooler reviews, but these values on page 7 are far behind the Maximum 4 values.

Nexus 7 Google Takes on the Tablets

This week Google went and set the tech world abuzz by announcing their new Nexus7 tablet, the result of a partnership with ASUS. Recent success of Amazon’s Kindle Fire has given Google hope that the small screen, inexpensive tablet market is one worth pursuing. Anyone who has considered adding a tablet to their arsenal of tech gadgets but has balked at the price tag (or paltry performance of most low-end tablets) should take a second look at the Nexus 7.

While your first inclination is probably to compare it to the iPad, the dominant tablet on the market, in truth the Nexus 7 wasn’t made to compete with the iPad. Its $199 starting price tag and 7” screen puts it squarely in the ring with the major eReader hybrids on the market: Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble’s Nook Tablet. It’s not going to stand up as well against the iPad or pricier Android tablets, but when its $200 less it would be like comparing a Honda Civic to a Mercedes. Some of the basic functionality is the same, but without all the bells and whistles.
