Summary: Purchased this in a semi-emergency situation. My last laptop died suddenly and I needed something quickly for school exams. This offers a good performance to price ratio. I can run older games on this with decent performance. Main drawbacks is the battery. Not only does each individual charge not last very long, the battery itself died completely after a little over a year of regular use.
Summary: For the price, it can't be beat. I've had mine for 2 years now and it's still running strong and keeps up and in many cases, surpasses brand new laptops in the same price range. Samsung is known for it's quality and compared to the HP and Compaq laptops I've owned in the past, Samsung is in a much higher caliber league. However, do not mistake this laptop for a top of the line. This is an entry level laptop, hence the price.
Summary: So far I have had little to no problems with this laptop. The sound quality is amazing, camera could be a little better. Otherwise, this was a great choice, it was within budget and I can game on it (you DON'T have to pay 1,000$ for a gaming laptop xD).
