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.
Summary: I purchased this laptop back in April and it has stopped playing DVDs a few weeks ago. The DVD somehow became stuck in the laptop and was so well hidden that my husband kept insisting that there was no DVD stuck in there. We have since got the DVD out. Needless to say, it will not play DVDs. I had only had the laptop for 3 months before the disk drive gave out.
Getting the most for your buck with this dual core pc!
15 August 2013
Summary: Nice laptop for a decent price. Looked around for sommat similar to this but most dual core pc's run around the $380-450 price mark or higher. Make sure everything is installed and then you do a full restart. Until it restarts a few times it wont work as speedy as possible. You have to download the synaptics for the mouse to have zooming/scrolling functions, or at least I did. THe computer itself is metal so its not some flimsy plastic.
