Really bad deal for this price

Dennis, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: This is the first review I have ever written because I am very very disappointed regarding this purchase. First of all, price wise this computer is okay, acceptable I guess. However, the performance is just absolutely HORRIBLE. CPU is slow, even slower than my previous laptop!!

Delete and Esc keys don't work.

E. B. "EB", Amazon
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Tried Samsung's request to re-image, still same problem. They expect me to ship to them for unknown turn around back. Will try to return to Amazon instead. Screen feels very flimsy and deforms by the right hand hinge when you close it.
