Summary: had this gem for less than 2 years and the screen hinge is already broken. i am exceptionally careful with my electronics and have never once dropped or mishandled this computer. it broke because it is defective and apparently this problem is very common with SAMSUNG ATIV computers.
Summary: We purchased four of these for our small business. They are all incredibly slow. We have minimal software installed, and it takes forever to complete standard tasks (web browsing, MS Office, etc).
gets hot and slow, touchbad buttoms are hard as rock. Ram upgrade does not help speed.

Summary: Goodbye Samsung Laptops. I bought this laptop 2 years ago in black Friday deal for 700. it had an amazing spec. but then.... after about 2 month, it became so slow, and I first blamed windows for that. I uninstalled a lot of my tools and run a lot of scan and defrag and it did get slightly better.
Summary: Initially the computer started up very slowly, but once I got windows 8 off my computer, it functioned much more quickly. Although I'm not a computer expert or anything of the sort, I think windows 8 would be more useful on a touch screen device. Since this is not one, it was more of a hindrance.
Summary: Bought this model from a Wal-Mart back in July of 2013 had zero problems what so ever. I paid a bit under $700 for mine and got a 1TB Samsung EVO SSD around the same time for $240 on cyber Monday. Plastic hinges, which I have had no issue with yet, seem to be the biggest downside of the device.
Summary: I am unsure if it the problems with Windows 8.1 on this computer or simply the HD or what. Yet it runs very slow and after an hour with Samsung Customer Support I will never again buy a Samsung TV or Computer. Regardless of wether this is a Hardware or Software issue causing the problems.
Absolutely worth it and completely exceeds expectation

Summary: This little pc is amazing. Simply because it is super light weight, sleek and powerful. I have installed and run many different operating systems already and all worked nicely with this device. The manuals and online documentation states that this machine has a RAM capacity maximum of 8GB.
