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. I saw some complaints below, but it all makes sense; keys are a good size, it's not squished. I like that there aren't any touch buttons.
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. Howver the more you fill your hard drive the slower netbooks become. For this reason I went for something with a little more power with the knowledge that I would compromise heavily on battery life.
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: I was surprised when seeing the configuration of this model. And i am the fan for AMD. So immediately i had chosen this model for my personal use. After buying and start using, it producing very heat. I can not use it on my lap. I can use it on my desk only. So i think that this is a desktop, not a laptop. Anyway other than the heat factor, configuration vice, functionality vice, its amazing.
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. Was a bit silly and forgot there was now CD drive to install previously bought programs, but easy when you read how to down load online.
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! The matte screen is one of the main reasons I choose Samsung - I hate the ubiquitous glossy screens on most other Notebooks - small, shiny screens are a poor combination for outdoor use. The HDMI output is great for transfer to a large screen and the results are good.
Great hardware under 25k but for the occasional screen issue

Summary: RAM-4GB/500GB/1GB-graphics under Rs. 25K. An excellent machine to start learning seriously using a lot of the open source software. Put 64-bit Ubuntu or Mint or run Knoppix in 64-bit mode with no issues (except for 3D compiz issue in knoppix 7.0.x as it does not recognize the hardware graphics correctly - you can still access all four workspaces using CTRL+ALT+ arrow keys; waiting to test on 7.1.0 when it is released as it might have better hardware detection for this...
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
