Summary: By far the worst laptop I have ever purchased. Combine Windows 8 with a disappearing CD drive that is not even recognized as a device or drive most of the time and it makes you want to throw this thing out the window. Also have problems with bank sites and Netflix among others, but I think this may be a Windows 8 issue.
Summary: Hands down the WORST laptop I've ever owned. Within a month of getting it, my screen developed a flickering problem, and soon after the screen went full berzerk and would either turn black or be covered with color spectrums (basically nothing can be seen). This was definitely a screen/monitor reception issue, as I was able to use my computer "fine" by using my TV as a monitor. I did eventually have to send in my laptop to get the problem fixed. It was fixed.
Summary: I bought this mainly for work, browsing the web, and ocassional gaming....this laptop has exceeded my expectations so far! I also really liked windows 8, once you get used to it, and start using windows store apps, you will never want to go back!
Don't buy this model if you need Intel Wireless Display

Summary: I bought this machine to integrate with my Smart TV using Intel Wireless Display. Having spent $700 and two weekends, I have no luck. I have checked out the website of both Samsung and Intel, which confirms that this model and CPU chips support Intel WIDI. After receiving the machine, I noticed that the WIDI software wasn't installed. When I tried to download it from the Intel website, I got an error message that this platform is not compatible with WIDI.
