Summary: Bought this to replace my wife's aging laptop. Absolutely love this laptop so far. We use it mostly to surf the web, watch Youtube, browse photos, work on Offce docs, and the occasional light gaming (Galactic Civ II). Pros: 1) Battery life. We usually get 5-6 hours on a single charge which is amazing compared to what we were used to. 2) Touchscreen. I was hesitant to switch to Windows 8.
Summary: Very nice size, weight, and display. The machine is very fast. I love the fact that it is functioning as soon as I open it. Battery life is pretty good, probably around 6-7 hours of use with MS Office. My main disappointment is with the keyboard, which I find to be quite bad. Many keystrokes don't 'take' because I am not hitting the keys at exactly the right angle. The keys may be too far apart and have no sculpting.
Summary: Just arrived today packaged very nicely and plenty of accessories included, the case is a little cheap but who cares. Laptop is VERY light just what I wanted. Key pad works fine for me I like the sensitivity of it. Only dislike is the size weight of the charger, I would have liked to see something lighter and smaller. Haven't travelled with it yet or gotten to do more than set it up, but it seems to meet all descriptions I had read.
Summary: I love the free Bluetooth mouse. Fast laptop. The high def screen resolution is good. Some reviews say that charger adapter plug easily break. Battery drain fast also having the extra cell attached. Overall its a 4 star for me.
Summary: Like many others, I had problems with the keyboard. Specifically I had the space bar issue, but some of the other keys felt funny, too. I could hear something rattling around. I would shake the computer, or use some compressed air, and the space bar would be reliable again. But once I moved the computer, the problems would return. I could literally feel the obstruction under the key.
Summary: I had my first S7 for about a week before I noticed a dead pixel in the upper left hand corner. The laptop had a few "quirks" as well with the track-pad and random phantom inputs on the touchscreen, but I just originally thought hey maybe its windows 8. I know some people had complained about the space-bar not working 100% of the time, I had also experienced the same thing. It wasn't a huge deal for me, so I could over look that as well.
Summary: Paid $780. OK, the battery is only good for 3hrs but this is OK for me. The quality is stunning1: display/keyboard/look & feel. My main disappointment is that, even though the power button is on the side (one of the reasons I chose the laptop) it cannot be switched on with the lid closed/down (I have it connected to a PC monitor when at home). Also, that keyboard's backlighting cannot be kept on at all times: it goes off after a minute.
Summary: This is the fastest laptop I've ever used. It looks amazing and it feels amazing. It runs the fans only when necessary meaning it's very quiet. It's incredibly light, and it feels sturdy. The lid is 100% gorilla glass with an aluminium border. This scares me a little, and I'm wondering how long before I smash it. I have installed Ubuntu Linux 13.04 on it and it works pretty much without issue - the hardware works out of the box including wifi, bluetooth, touchscreen etc.
