Summary: You can take your 700 dollars and go get a much better laptop from another brand. I'm normally a big Samsung proponent, but this computer has been very disappointing. I've had crashes and software issues, but the absolute worst part about the computer is the cheaply made track pad. It's either too sensitive, not sensitive enough, or just doesn't work. To put it simple, it's crap. Just a cheap design that ruins the experience and overall functionality of the computer.
Mine is defective and the touchpad / touchscreen freezes. Don't know if most have that issue.
30 March 2014
Summary: Mine freezes intermittently but regularly. No response from the touchscreen nor keyboard. Well actually inputs slow to a complete crawl and would eventually register many minutes later at an extremely slow rate. The workaround is to close the lid for about 1 minute or long enough for the Windows 8.1 lock screen to appear and when the lid is reopened everything is back to normal until it decides to freeze again.
Summary: very bad performance. dont be fooled by the quad core spec, by opening more than 3 tabs in internet explorer or firefox the cpu peaks 100%. speakers sound quality is poor as well. very entry level.basic machine. light tho may suite those needing a quick start and light machine like commuters or so.
Summary: The first one we had worked OK apart from the dongle for the wired ethernet access wouldn't get an IP Address form the DHCP server, or indeed work if I gave it a static IP Address.May have been just the dongle, or may not, but at Samsung's advice that went back. The replacement machine connected to the network OK wired and wireless but intermittently - but still fairly frequently - it crashed - at least in so far as the screen went blank and the only way to get it back...
Summary: First thoughts of seeing this laptop in the store; light, sleek, stylish and perfect price for my budget. I wanted a laptop mainly for internet use and to download the odd app here and there. I wasn't expecting high spec however quad core or intel core i5 (at least) was a must. Within minutes of using the machine i was extremely disappointed with it. I regularly play games online and noticed that it ran very sluggishly and was sticking when i scrolled down the page.
Summary: Ich bin Lehrerin und nutze auf meinem Rechner daher hauptsächlich Office. Da an unserer Schule jetzt alle Schüler mit eigenem Laptop ausgerüstet sind und diesen im Unterricht auch benutzen wollen, habe ich nach einem Gerät gesucht, mit dem ich z. B. ein ppt-Dokument zusammen mit den Schülern interaktiv ergänzen kann und vor allem auch einfache Zeichnungen schnell auf dem Rechner anfertigen kann.
