No Regrets Switching to Samsung Laptop
Tomaso Pig, Amazon

Summary: Once I got this computer loaded with Windows 8, I thought I should have my head examined for not staying with an earlier version, like my octogenarian friend did. Of course, I couldn't be bothered with manuals, so I've stumbled through the past twelve months. I've managed to get done what I need to- finally.
Summary: Samsung has come out swinging with this puppy. Purchased this from best buy during an open box sale (250$) so I got a steal on this thing. Initial build quality is what you'd expect from a budget laptop (very plasticy, you can push down where the speakers are almost a 1/4" and there is some flex to it when you close it). I was a little skeptical when purchasing but for the price i couldn't walk away.
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.
