Summary: I have had this lap top for a couple years now and it has held up very nicely for me. It has a great display and the resolution is great. It surprisingly plays larger games fairly well. One of the more recent games I have been running on it is Payday 2 and it looks/runs great for a laptop.
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.
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.
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.
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. Takes practice:)
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...
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.
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?
