It doesn't have fetching looks, but it's reliable.

Summary: I've had this computer for awhile now and it has proven itself reliable. It came with Windows 8.0 but that isn't the computer's fault so I won't take any stars off for that. I knew that when I purchased it. The best thing about the system is the boot-time. Unlike the old days you would turn on the computer and go get yourself a refreshment. With this computer and the 8.0 operating system it's almost instantly ready to go.
Summary: This computer is replacing a 4-year old Intel i5 laptop with 4GB of RAM. This new computer is a lot faster than my old laptop. Also, the laptop is fairly light. I purchased this computer because of the name (Samsung), and while its not a gaming powerhouse, that's not what I need. I need a solid computer that is reliable, runs office applications well, and does every-day stuff without issue. On all these counts, I'm satisfied.
Summary: I'm not much of a computer person. I know wish I would have purchased the touch screen option. It is still taking some getting use to, in regards to the navigation. The graphics are nice, it runs well. I must admit I need to read my manual so that I can make sure to take advantage of all the neat features offered.
Summary: I went from a 2005 HP Laptop with an XP OS to this. . . of course it's awesome! The only thing I will recommend is to make sure to read how to use the touch pad. It does so many things, but the smallest mis-swipe of your finger; and you're in a completely different screen.
Summary: The computer itself is excellent. I am just disappointed that office 2010 was NOT preloaded so I have to buy it separately!!! Also the laptop did not come with a bag. I thought that is some thing the seller should have included as a small bonus especially for people like myself paying a substantial freight figure owing to the distance of my location! Otherwise besides these two concerns, I am happy!!!!
Summary: It was my first lap top from Samsung. Very nice on all over. The reason why, I gave 4 stars It wasn't the product. It is me, that I am not used to with window 8. Little complicate than window 7.
Summary: I thought the keyboard was great, track pad 'alright' but not special. It's got more bells and whistles than most at a great price point. Overall though it feels like they crammed in all the goods with the concept of providing the most for the least instead of a really great computer. Finish is nice flat black. (not as nice as the replacement Asus Republic of Gaming pretty darn loaded machine) I'm probably over thinking it as surely this preforms great.
Summary: (EDIT: at time of purchase march 23, 2013. This product was selling new for $700 even. If your price is higher I would look at another as it is no longer a bargin above $700) This is truly an excellent bargain for the price. An i7 processor, 1TB hard-drive, and 17" HD screen? Whats not to love? Well, a few things but first:.... The good. As stated, an I7 processor which is very impressive especially at this price. If you bounce on over to[...
Summary: I Don't like Win 8 its hard work in several things and the worst is closing it down on 7 I had 2 clicks on 8 o have to fumble to find it then 3 moves o shut it down, out of 5 stars I would rate it 3 no more.
