Too slow for video, too slow for Youtube, barely fast enough for email
Rev. Linda Lennon, Amazon

Summary: This is a bad laptop. It has a big screen and a cheap price, but it's too slow to do ANYTHING with. The AMD E2-1800 is NOT a laptop processor - it's an older generation and intended for tablets - simply put - it can't handle windows. It can't handle 720p videos, and it can't even handle Youtube. Even after a fresh format, it's sluggish opening web browsers - it's barely adequate for internet and email, and can't handle basic things you'd use a laptop for.
Summary: I would not recommend this laptop. Even in this price range, there are much better options. It is a minimally-functional low-end laptop. The screen is unimpressive but minimally adequate for an undemanding user. The same can be said of the rest of the components. Windows 8 is horrible, and Samsung does not supply the necessary drivers to run Windows 7. The BIOS settings are a disaster, with virtually no tuning options and no ability to boot off of a USB device.
Summary: This is my first Samsung product. Samsung seems to have a good reputation for TV's and cell phones and other electronics. So I bit on this one. Fortunately paid only $249.00 new. Replaced my Toshiba Vista laptop. Well, Windows 8 is awful. But that has nothing to do with this laptop (I think). This laptop is a bottom budget laptop and it really shows. All of the components are minimal or marginal. It is a laptop. That's it.
Summary: At first the laptop was great. I haven't even had it that long and it constantly is updating and when doing this it always says "failure to update"! A brand new computer shouldn't be having problems updating so now I guess it is time to contact Samsung Windows 8 I am still learning but starting to get the hang of it. My space bar also will squeak once in a while too.
Summary: I did not like this product because the seller gave me the wrong and used one instead of a brand new that I ordered and beside this, I cannot access to it because is blocked by MATEO RODRIGUEZ that I never meet before and I do not know why this MATEO RODRIGUEZ is on this PC and asking me for a password. I do not remomend someone to buy any item from this seller. I am sorry.
