Summary: This is an excellent laptop for the price. Fast and very lightweight. We got this to take on vacation for early mornings and late night in the hotel. The only slight disappointment is of course Windows 8 and the changes from Windows 7. But we got used to it in a few hours. We had previously bought Samsung TV's and they are excellent so we bet on their PC being excellent also and it is.
Summary: It is a good system in terms of performance but the only reason it didnt get a 5/5 rating from me is the windows 8 operating system it came with. It is very annoying to manipulate but as i said the system is very good for the price it was sold (Y)
Summary: Installation was flauless right out of the box. I was looking for the best computer for the price and this one meets the criteria. I expect this computer to serve the college student who owns it, well.
Summary: Not many problems with the computer itself, my main problem is with win 8. I don't know when sp1 comes out, but the current version requires modification, I used StartisBack, and recommend it highly, it's cheep and effective. The actual machine was great, except for wifi, mousepad and minor heat issues. Wifi was a bit dodgy and occasionally slow, but definately very usable and generally better than your average usb adapter would give you.
Summary: This laptop has a nice design, good specs and comes at a good price. The main issues I have with this laptop is the screen makes a noise when I open and close it which is a little concerning for a new laptop and the other is the touch pad, I dont know if its the way windows 8 handles the input as gestures can be preformed with the pad or its an issue with the actual device. The touch pad just doesnt feel right, but thats where the wireless mouse comings in.
Summary: Pros -The hardware it has is just great. Wouldn't get anything better for this price. -Solid works 2012 is running well with AMD Radeon HD 7730M 2GB. -Almost Every work well in this computer Cons -Windows 8 ( Maybe for those who are learning windows for the first time its ok. But for those who already knew it, I wouldn't recomend) -Touch pad doesn't really work. For I was used with apple touch pads, this one sucks.

Summary: hi shoppers, i bought this laptop about a month ago, and so far it's been ok, works fine, didn't have a chance to play big game so far, but hope it will go, why hope, because it takes pretty long time to start it up, way more than my previous one, way less powerful, but then it's works fine, speakers are cheep, and assembling wish to be better, like cd-rom door scratches itself when open and closes, but i paid only $599 so it's about right!
Overall really good machine... minus the HDD and track pad

Summary: Bottomline: I am very happy with this system so far and would buy it again. Hard-drive (HDD) is pretty slow, but I will be replacing it with a solid-state drive (SSD), so that won't be an issue for long. I definitely recommend this laptop. It has a very high bang-for-the-buck factor, especially when you look at the dedicated Radeon graphics card, Intel Core i7, and USB 3.0 ports.
