Summary: Although I purchased this item some time back, I feel I should review it now. It worked great until the 12 month warranty ran out. I tried contacting the manufacturer after that point with questions, and I never got a response. Amazon did offer some promotional credit, but I'm still with a laptop that isn't what it use to be. I always took care with it and feel so let down about this product. I would steer clear of samsung products if you have the choice.
Summary: Certainly it is an attractive looking net book, and about the lightest available at the price. That is why I bought one. So why disappointed? Well, the WIFI is very weak and struggles to achieve enough speed for video streaming. Reading the web reviews this seems to be its weak point. The Samsung on-line technical help service seemed unwilling to discuss this. From the Samsung site this model seems now to be discontinued.
Summary: Powerful and perfect size for my use. Enough memory (4gigs) and hard disk space (500gigs). Only four stars because of the below the standard quality of the WiFi adapter. Edit: After almost a year of use, the problem has been the AC adapter which is too small and keeps breaking and it's hard if not impossible to find an universal adapter for this model (which would have easily changeable plug tips).
Summary: I wanted a lightweight laptop to replace my creaking netbook. This one fits the bill and that's why it gets 3 stars. Unlike Chromebooks, you don't need internet access to use it (I can't imagine anything less useful.) Unlike Netbooks, it does chunter along at a good speed (but if all you're doing is mail, browsing and word processing then buy one of those instead.) Unlike Ultrabooks you don't need a mortgage to buy one. With the sleep function it wakes up in seconds.
Summary: So I got my laptop yesterday. Installation took around 15 mins and it's really straightforward. But after only few minutes I was not able to start any browser, tried to restart few times but no luck so I had to reinstall system, which is easy, just press F4 when booting and follow instructions. After this laptop is working fine. Battery life is a laugh to be honest, if you watch steam movies after only 3 hours your battery is dead.
Summary: This notebook is a very very good, except the jumping touch pad when typing and most disappointing- the very very poor battery life. I am going to return this one and buy NC110 atom 2600 instead.
Summary: Bought this as it was on discount on amazon (£279) and for the price offered a better spec than others available - i like the 4gb RAM and the 500gb hard drive. Once windows has completed its updates it seems to run really well and is nice and quick for browsing using google chrome. It looks smart and i think a 11 inch screen is the ideal compromise in size - small enough to be lightweight and portable, but big enough to browse the net and watch youtube etc.
Excerpt: покупал в основном для игр. продавец сказал это хороший вариант(в последствии понял меня надули). покупал за 20тыс. слабые игры тянет. а на мощных нагревается и вырубается . НЕ СОВЕТУЮ ДЛЯ ИГР.
Pros: подходит для офисной работы
Cons: перегрев. не тянет множество игр(assasins cread 4,crysis 3 и так далее
Excerpt: Вообще взял его случайно, брал паккардбелл в красном цвете, но на третий день, в ночь накануне отъезда, умер винт, назад брать не хотели, только в сервис, договорился поменять, добить денег с собою не было, я то бы взял что нибудь другое.
Cons: Очень греется, пару раз отрубался из-за перегрева, мало в нем вентиляционных отверстий, кулер шумит, батарея через пять месяцев стала заряжаться на 80 процентов, заряда на долго не хватает, дома wi-fi точка, часто не может подключиться, или теряет её ни с того ни с сего, асер работает. Поверхность ляпается, притягивает пыль,
