I would purchase this laptop again
19 April 2015
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.
Summary: When I received this product, it worked flawlessly as I was adjusting to Windows 8.1. When I received this product, it was still running Windows 8, and it needed to be upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Following the upgrade, the laptop became glitchy and would no longer function properly.
So disappointed in one of my favorite companies -- DOA after only 15 months of light use.

Summary: It WAS a great computer. Had everything I needed, and nothing I didn't. It integrated nicely with my Samsung phone, tablet, and TV. Then - just 3 months out of warranty, it died. It just decided to not boot. Took it to Geek Squad, and they said there is nothing that can be done.
I think it works great. I've seen and used many laptops over years ...

Summary: Bought as a gift for a friend. Never saw it in person but from what I hear back and from what I have for myself on another Samsung, I think it works great. I've seen and used many laptops over years working as computer repair guy, Samsung laptops are one of the better ones out there.
