Summary: Was great until the hinge started coming off, spent 200 dollars to replace the entire screen, then had it happen again. The trackpad software was faulty and the Windows it came preinstalled with keeps asking for a product key.
Summary: Excellent ultra-book. Lovely design, speedy processor that can handle most tasks (including light gaming). The keyboard feels great to type on. The chassis contains more ports than you'll probably ever need from an ultra book (which is not a bad thing).
With What it comes with I Only Give it 3.5 to 4 Stars, After Upgrading 5.

Summary: I added 16gb of ram and I put in a Samsung 250 gb msata ssd. The 128gb it comes with only left me with 30gb total after downloading very little. It doesn't come with enough memory. Samsung, like the phone puts too much on the Ultrabook to start with.
Summary: The comment about the hinge is EXACTLY right. I purchased mine in Feb 2014 and 11 months later, the hinge has come loose. I baby my computers, this one's in a padded case and hasn't a scratch.
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.
Summary: OH ME BE DAMNED! I love this comp. It was not black, but silver, other than that it has exceeded all my expectations! Boots from off in less than two sec. Back-lit keyboard is the bee's knees. What's a cd rom? HDMI straight to the tv is awesome sauce. Finally, someone answered MY prayers!
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.
Summary: overall very good ultrabook. best one i could find for about $760. at its original price of $1000 there may or may not be better ones. If only samsung didnt have their auto brightness adjust on the screen and keyboard it would be perfect.
Pros: - got it on sale for $760 -only 13.3 inches but 1920x1080 resolution - very thin and quiet. made with aluminum metal so doesnt attract fingerprints and feels very sturdy. - backlit keyboard (although it could be a bit brighter) - touchscreen is very good (but i dont use it because of fingerprints...
Cons: - screen has auto brightness adjust depending on whether its light out or dark (can be turned off) - auto backlit keyboard depending if its dark out. (can be turned off) - WIN 8 - removing the charger from the laptop requires some force. its plugged in there pretty tight
Bought two - High quality, Super Screen, Light, Classy

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.
