Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a Sony Vaio that I've been using for about 3 years. I did my research, and I wanted a laptop that had a quad core i7 processor, a 1080p screen, a dedicated graphics card, had no cd drive, and looked stylish. This laptop fit that bill.
Summary: I have owned this since January of 2014. I will say, in the current state, the laptop is screaming but that took upgrades. The HD it comes with is very slow, that was recently upgraded to a Samsung SSD. The Intel Wi-Fi card that it comes would not consistently connect to our home network.
Summary: Being as I started from an older Dell, 32bit XP OS desktop, my ATIV much better. It did die once - I couldn't reboot. I just waited until the fan stopped, and let it chill-out a bite. I do shutdown now whenever the PC is not in use. I did install 8.1, and that was painless.
Summary: I am fairly tech savvy and i fall in the group of bigger is better. i was contiplateing between this laptop and an ultrabook. I didn't buy it for its size or the size of the hard drive (but it is nice). i picked this one because of the keyboard and its number pad and i am glad i did.
Summary: Flawless shipping, flawless set-up...far too much Samsung bloatware. Am using a SSD on my desktop, and found this painfully slow. Considered opening and changing out the 5400 RPM drive, but decided to opt for a laptop with a built in SSD. For this reason only, returned the laptop.
Summary: Instructions (same as series 7) and a little effort (~17 screws) for a newegg type made it easy to swap in Plextor m5p. Made it the complete package and now I have a 1tb external drive for backup. Warning you better know what you are doing for bad things might happen.
Pros: Price for the performance, form factor, physical quality. Like the keyboard, touchpad and display is sharp. Performs as you would expect with the CPU, memory, GPU level. Size is easy to carry without compromising features and readability. Not sure on battery life yet.
Cons: Hard drive is big and slow. Case is not designed for end-user access.
