Very Good Laptop

Ruel, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • 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.

SO SLEEK!

SamsungLover945, Samsung
2 April 2014
  • Summary: This is one heck of an ultra book. Beautifully designed, perfectly responsive, amazing! Love mine so much! Would recommend to any student or video editor like myself. I did upgrade the memory to 16 GB RAM and it was so easy to do. Not that the original 4 GB RAM wasn't enough, I just do A LOT of Pinnacle Studios and Photoshop.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, quality build

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.

Great laptop

Paul Shahinian, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • 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.

Solid Laptop!

Joseph Arora, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • 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!

I love it more than my ATIV Book 9 Plus!

VinceFromMontana, Samsung
16 December 2013
  • Summary: Yeah! The title is true! My ATIV Book 9 was awesome! But I gave it away as a present and kept my Book 7 because I loved it so much. It was a little buggy with 8.1, but Microsoft promptly sent out updates to fix that. Works beautifully now. I use it for editing video, photos, and school work. I love the sleek design (very Macbookish[I know, I know gross] but it is pretty). So... good work Samsung. I am one happy camper!

Sleek and Sexy

Habadeer, Samsung
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I saw this laptop and took a chance having no experience with a Samsung laptop before. I am glad I did. The construction is solid, the finish is sleek, it is a beautiful piece of hardware. I immediately dumped Windowz 8 and put Ubuntu 13.10 on it with no issues whatsoever. Everything worked under Ubuntu with the exception of the keyboard backlight (not a big deal). Its fast and I have had no issues sustaining wifi connections as I have read in other forums.
  • Pros: Durable, full hd display, metal construction, runs ubuntu, easy to open chassis, easy to upgrade, upgradeable to 16gb ram
  • Cons: glossy screen has glare, no room for laptop hdd
