Summary: This ultraportable laptop is the best you can get, for a reasonable price. It is not touchscreen, so its weight is excellent. It does come with Windows 8, though, which means you've got to spend some time updating it to 8.1 and making it work the way you like. I admit it took me a couple of days to get it to the state I wished, but after that, it has been working perfectly (it's been 4 months now).

Summary: the hinges always break. It's a manufacturers defect and they will not refund you if it happens after the warranty so getting extended warranty or just buy a different laptop I highly recommend you do not get this computer.
Summary: I bought this computer as I headed off to school almost 2 year ago, ready to create something for myself. This thing is fast. I was amazed by how quickly it started up with windows 7, and then even more amazed by the 1 second improvement with windows 8. That's a drop from 6 to 5 seconds, for the record.

Summary: I give it 5 stars for it functionality, usability, interface, and speed, and to top it off it's super sleek and cosmetically beautiful. Yes - I bought it used, but even then, it's a perfect piece of technology. As a used computer, I expected the random problems: this one has a crack on the bottom left corner of the screen, less than half of an inch, barely visible. And some plugins don't download, like google voice..
Summary: The laptop in itself is amazing. Slick design, super fast, stable. However, Samsung doesn't pay much attention to Linux as an operating system and for a long time (until a person from the community fixed it), the battery life was horrible (about 2h). Finally, the audio quality of the mic is poor and people on video calls cannot hear what I say. The quality of the front camera is not very impressive.
