A Great Computer for $1299, a bit worried about GPU, Windows 8 Ruined this masterpiece.

Summary: Summary: Like I expected from Samsung, a GREAT product, but Windows 8 killed the game. Shipping: When I received this computer, I began to notice that the bottom-left portion of my screen is dimmer than the rest of the display. I'm willing to send this to Samsung when I have the chance since I have a 1 year warranty. Secondly, BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE SELLER. This device didn't have a screen protector on when I got it, and I'm suspecting it used to be a store display.
Summary: I wanted a new desktop for my family and I wanted something that would be less of a hassle and take up less room. This was my first Samsung computer and I have to say it has been a very positive experience. The wireless keyboard and mice are nice touch so all you have is the power cord which is rather large but it does power an entire desktop to include the monitor. The computer works great. I have only found 2 things that I have not really liked: 1.
Summary: really like this all in one computer synchs all of my devices now that I have learned Windows 8 I like the touch screan, The only thing is I am unable to aquire a warranty of any kind as I purchased it "used" . Although it had never been out of the box.
Summary: I bought this computer when my previous desktop was killed by a power surge. I wanted to get the best desktop for my needs in my price range. I'm not a gamer, so that capability isn't important to me. I do find myself trying to touch my computer screen at work (which isn't touchscreen) since I'm so used to my phone and Ipad, so I wanted a touchscreen if I could afford it. I also have limited desk space and wanted something quiet so I could have it in my bedroom.
Summary: I gave this transaction only 4 stars not because of the seller but because of the product's glitches. The Samsung Series 7 is great but it does have some glitches in the touch features. These gliches are minor such as the lock screen custom picture needs to be set again from the default on occasion. As for the seller, I received the item promptly and professionally. I would recommend this seller.
Upgraded to 8.1 fine for me... but... how the heck can you open it up to upgrade the hard drive... no access door!!!

Summary: Upgraded fine to Windows 8.1 for me but how the heck do you open this up if you want to upgrade the hard drive??? I know it can be done as I've seen a review elsewhere where someone said they had done it. Strange, I believe that it comes with the memory maxed out at 8 gb but yet they have an access door for the memory. Heck, every laptop I've ever had has provided for access to the hard drive and memory.
Summary: The overall design of this computer is what drew me to it. Never-mind the specs, I was looking for all in one computer because I hate computers that have all these different chords coming in and out of it. I was looking for a computer that had a simple elegant design first and foremost. Secondly, I wanted a machine that had decent specs so that I can play games on it occasionally. I also needed decent hard drive space for all my movies.
Summary: I thought the price was competitive and it's a sharp looking system. The screen looks good and touch screen is responsive. Good loud sound. It's not perfect though. Mouse is of cheap quality, but it works. No TV tuner, which is a great letdown for me. Also, no remote control which is quite disappointing. No bluray is also not good. Also, I don't like Windows 8 much, but that is Microsoft, not Samsung...
