Amazing hardware and feel. Software took a little work.

Summary: Build: Lets start on the physical build of the computer. I love it. The design is simple and classy looking yet is still interesting. The laptop feels EXTREMELY solid. There is no flex in the keyboard or where you rest your hands.The hinge is very sturdy and allows you almost 180 degrees of motion. This thing is also very thin, but it still does have some weight. Nothing unmanageable though. The material is very nice with the aluminium deck/top and plastic on the bottom.
Summary: I did months of research because the only reason I needed a PC is for Photoshop. The display is sharp and the keyboard is great, I was even surprised by the sound quality. The only issue I had upgrading to windows 8.1 is that you have to do all the windows 8.0 upgrades before the 8.1 upgrade shows available at the Microsoft Store.
Summary: I am very happy with laptop itself, everything meet or exceed expectations.Like usually always something: I would like that come with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8, but again overall very happy. Laptop came on the time and was in original box. Happy camper !
Powerful and speedy workhorse -- worth every penny!

Summary: Heavy duty laptop for heavy duty work. I purchased this laptop as a secondary laptop since my primary laptop is getting older, but I find that I spend more time on this laptop than my other one, even much of my data and applications are on the other computer. I love the loading speed, touchscreen, backlit keyword, and just workhorse power of this laptop.
Summary: **update 8/21** this computer screams...no junk..nothing! i took things a step further (i guess i was bored) the other week and completely formatted the laptop with a fresh copy of windows 8 via usb. this gets really kinda techie so if your not up to the task just skim over this part of the review. from Microsoft's terms of service. "May I make a backup copy? Yes, you may make a single copy of the software for backup purposes.." do the following at your own risk.
Summary: Love this new laptop. Affordable and durable compared to Apple Mac products and top-of-the-line brand that competes with any laptop right now on the market. Great battery power and life too. The audio is solid and the screen resolution is up-to-par. The only real challenge is getting on board with Microsoft Windows 8...which like all new operating system entirely on a different approach (this one--touchscreen) it will take some time to get used to!
Summary: I have been purchasing things on Amazon for years, and this is the first time I have written a review, although I have read thousands of them and I find them extremely helpful. I followed the advice of others and switched the hard drive with an ssd. I only had the computer for 2 days when I did it. I was very nervous about messing with a new computer. The hardest thing in the whole process was getting the back off the computer.
Summary: Computer is great. (adding an SSD is essential and may be difficult for some). Windows 8 is Meh.... Battery is as expected and sufficient for me... Lots of finger prints on the chassis. Touchpad works well. Touchscreen is beautiful. Keyboard types very well and has very usable 10-key for those who care. Wanted the Ativ Book 8 with the 8870 video card and larger battery, but I was not willing to wait any longer for Samsung to offer it in the US.
Summary: Excellent Display and great peformance. Wireless is getting disconnected frequently, i think it is because of drivers as others mentioned but, not yet tried. I don't feel speakers are great though it has JBL.
