Hinge will break...

Summary: Purchased laptop in March 2014 and hinge began having troubles in July 2015. The hinge became loose and eventually the adhesive or glue holding the lid together came off and the entire screen has broken off.
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: 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: 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.
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.
