Summary: I bought this PC to replace an old desktop machine. It is very fast and adding another 2GB of RAM for $9.00 makes it a very good all round PC. At around $270.00 used it is a very good buy. The sound is not as good as our Toshiba A665 but it's performance is.
Summary: This is my first day with the laptop. I am just a general user (music, video, MS Office, web browsing), so this is just for the feel/ease of use: - Track pad is nice. Good position and just sensitive enough. It does the Mac scrolling thing (2 fingers). - Feel of keyboard is great for me.
Summary: All in all, this is a sweet deal!! Yes, it's on the economic side as far as Samsung build quality goes. It delivers on AMD's A8 vision without issues/incident. Running quiet & cool 64-bit (KVM) Linux flawlessly (Kernel 3.x series) On-board components 100% operational!!
Good value if you are prepared to compromise battery life

Summary: I went for this after having a Samsung netbook that caught fire through no fault of its own. I was fairly happy with that having some prior knowledge about the limitations of netbook performance, it was good compared to other netbooks that I have used.
Summary: Purchase for my wife who was using an E-PC 10.1", that had become problematic. was great at first, but seems to have slowed down considerably since new, and battery life very poor despite being careful to condition battery properly.
Summary: Perfect little notebook - to be used in conjunction with bigger laptop. Ideal for my job as class teacher. Appears pretty robust without being bulky and amazed by how light it actually is. I'm not a very technical person but so easy to start with a little knowledge.
Summary: I have been a fan of Samsung for a long time and this machine does not disappoint. It is robust compared with other Notebooks and the slightly larger screen gives just that bit extra for my ageing eyes!
Summary: good product working as required and I am very happy with it, had to send the first one i had back because I kept getting errors on the hard drive but I had no trouble returning it and the postage was refunded
Improve battery life/performance by updating WiFi driver

Summary: I noticed in Task Manager that the System process was consistently using 5% - 10% of CPU. This is unusually high. It should be close to 0%. I traced the problem to the Broadcom 802.11n network driver. The driver that comes with Windows 7 is rather old, from 2009, and a little buggy.
