and although its a nice feature, its highly sensitive and can become damaged ...

  • Summary: Do not spend your money on this computer. Its quirky... the hinge is faulty and will end up breaking on you. The screen is touchscreen, and although its a nice feature, its highly sensitive and can become damaged easily and go haywire. Do your research on issues with this computer and you will see my points. Plus Samsung customer service and warranty departments are terrible... they will do all they can to not fix their faulty products.

Amazing Machine..worth the money!

Ruel, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: This machine is awesome! I boot up in seconds. Changed the ram and msata so I have now 10G ram and 500mSATA. Trasnfer of data (i.e. Windows OS and other files was easy as 1,2,3 using the Samsung Data Transfer Wizard. You can watch on youtube on how to open this machine and how to transfer the OS to another mSATA srive. I start to like the color which is brushed aluminum.

Bought two - High quality, Super Screen, Light, Classy

Cire Gastav, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought one, then I bought one more on another site - refurbished - since we liked them so much. I had researched and purchased a number of laptops including Asus and the Samsung NP88 and NP78 versions of this computer. The NP74 is quite light and fits in your bag. I just bought the Amazon Basics slip cover as its case. Even the power cable and charger are small. Great to carry around or use it as a desktop replacement.

Out of the box it would not boot up!

Robert Goemans, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: After taking the unit to a local retailer of Samsung computers, who checked it out and also found it would not boot up, was told there was probably a hardware problem and that I needed to contact Samsung to have it repaired. Called Samsung and they requested I try several things prior to authorizing me to send it back to them for repair. Nothing worked, and they gave me a repair number and label for free shipping.

Solid Laptop!

Joseph Arora, Amazon

  • Summary: 5 hr battery life, beautiful screen and easy to use. I love Windows 8.1! Many new features that are useful once I learned how to use them. The touchscreen is a must have with Windows 8.1!

Highly recommend

Nicolette "Nicolette Collazo", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this after a week of laptop research. This laptop is the only affordable touch screen laptop with full 1080p hd and a good amount of ram/inernal storage which is easily upgradable. The next was the brand new samsung series 9 which was over $1000 and my price range. This laptop looks nice, boots up in seconds, and has incredible battery length. The only con I have is the mousepad can be a little hard to get used to if you're switching from a MacBook Air as I did.

Very Good Laptop

Ruel, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: This laptop is very good. Very good resolution and responsive touchpad. I have upgraded my SSD from 128 to 500. Bought a Samsung EVO and an 8G ram from Amazon and managed to install them correctly. Just watch on youtube the video on how to upgrade this and how to open the back correctly. You might encounter problem in your touchpad (horizontal scrolling will not work) afterwards but this is very easy. Let me know once you encounter such upon upgrade.

Great laptop

Paul Shahinian, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Got a great deal on this in BestBuy. Great quality for the price and the case is aluminum and not plastic. Weighs 3.6 lbs which I think is light in its compact form. Screen is 1080p and has good speakers for an ultrabook. Keyboard is fine, key travel isn't very good but its thin. The biggest benefit to me though is the ram on this machine isn't soldered in. You can open it up and upgrade the SSD or Ram. It has two ram slots with one filled by the factory 4gb.
