Summary: It is as Samsung had stated. It's lighter weight than older laptops. It doesn't have 4 USB ports. It only has 3 and one of the USB ports id 3 and the other two ports are 2. Three and two are the versions of USB. It does not have a DVD/CD drive. Will have to buy an external DVD/CD drive.It does have Intel Core i7. Other laptops that I had looked at were of the same price, but had older versions of Intel's processors.
Summary: Price may be good but beware. I got a brand new one (well one of the last batches made) and on day two of setting it up the battery stopped working. The laptop would work when plugged in but the battery would not charge and I started getting a warning that if the power was unplugged I would loose all of my work. I looked all over for a replacement battery, since I'm not afraid to take the covers off, but no one has one for sale.
Summary: all in all good so far. Had to update most of the software that is included but that is all most a given with the date produced. the only complants are the the power cord has a 2 foot length before going into the transformer box and that the headphone/mic are one port and are in the middle of the side and hard to find even with looking right at it with a USB in the port next to it.
