Summary: This laptop is the best I've owned. Never a problem with it, though I admit it was difficult getting used to Windows 8 (but that's Microsoft for you!). I received it as a gift about a year ago, and it's been used daily since then. Games and music are played simultaneously with no drag; the Bluetooth connection adds my stereo and home network without a hitch; and my files hide in the "clouds" and come with me wherever I go.
Summary: Wow. It's a finely tuned state of the art PC. I like it even better after wiping Windows 8 off of it and installing Windows 7. Now I have a flash drive with all the Windows 7 drivers for the NP550P7C on it, and my own copy of Windows 7, and I can wipe the whole thing and start over whenever I want. But I gotta say, this machine is fast, pretty and powerful. Gorgeous. I almost bought a Mac, but now that I'm running Windows 7 on this thing I just love it.
Summary: I have had so much fun with my new laptop! Windows 8 required some learning, but the Samsung is swift, has great video, and I love the large screen. I read that it heats up a lot, but I haven't experienced that. I do wish the battery lasted longer though.

Summary: Love it. My first time with Windows 8 so still "settling in." Have problems with the "touchiness" of the keypad mouse changing the size of the text on screen, changing screens, etc., but I am sure it's just something I need to toggle in Windows 8. I chose this laptop because of the features I need in what I do with a computer as well as the size of the screen and that the keyboard contains a separate number keypad. I was not disappointed.
Summary: This is the first laptop I've ever had. I needed something that would be able to handle massive amounts of video footage (video editing is a hobby of mine,) and be able to handle some heavy MMORPG action. This thing goes through high-graphics games and video-editing like a hot knife through butter. On that note, while playing games,it gets VERY VERY hot.
Summary: A very impressive machine, having the latest i7 processor with all the bells and whistles. Great blue ray DVD drive and connectivity including USB 3. If your not used to Windows 8 expect a little bit of frustration while you get to grips with its modus operandi.
