Summary: EDIT: I have left a fantastic review below but start having problems with the unit. I called Samsung and they said I will have to exchange the laptop since there is something wrong and it is a manufacture defect. I have issues typing and using the mouse. Bummer! I will give it another chance though since I love it otherwise! Amazon is sending me another one and I'm sure it will be fine! I LOVE this computer otherwise! Version 3 Is awesome!
Summary: After waiting about a month and a half for this computer to ship, I was overjoyed when it arrived at my doorstep. After opening and starting to use the laptop, I realized that the right arrow key was sticking. When I pressed it down it took several seconds before it would pop up again. Nothing I did would fix this issue I figured that the warranty would cover fixing this and contacted Samsung.
Summary: I've had this laptop for a couple of months and wanted to give an honest opinion/review after adjusting to Win8 (I Use Win7 and XP as well). Thus far, this has been a surprisingly agile, easy to navigate, fun to own laptop. Having never experienced the AMD processor before, I was quite pleasantly surprised in regards to performance for all of the apps I use (Microsoft Office Suite, Music and Video, Games, Social Apps, etc etc etc..
Summary: I swore the last time I purchased a PC that it would be the LAST PC I'd buy. But I have been so frustrated with an old Vista basic machine that I didn't have the funds to purchase a REAL computer (Hint....Apple). So I began my quest to replace my desktop with a decent laptop that could be somewhat more versatile. After a rather protracted search I settled on a budget I was comfortable with and went in search for the best value. Well this is definitely the one.
Summary: I snagged this puppy for a mere $434, which seems to be deal of century. Via Amazon's warehouse deals, and although listed as "used," seems new except for the non-Samsung box. The computer box was shipped to me in a grossly oversized and wasteful larger shipping box, which wasn't even needed. C'mon Amazon, get green! Very little bloatware, and comes with several useful utility programs not part of standard Windows 8.
Summary: ATTENTION: If you need drivers for this laptop, go to the Samsung website, start an online chat, and just ask them for the SW Update program. They will send it to you free right through chat, and it basically downloads and installs all the drivers you need automatically. VERY convenient, especially since their driver page is down for this laptop.
