it's a terrible laptop after some usage.

Joseph Kim, Amazon

  • Summary: I have bought these when Microsoft gave out free Xbox 360 when you buy windows 7 laptop that is upgradable to windows 8 for 19.99. I chose this laptop amongst many other laptop because the specs were little bit better than other laptops that were offered. the problem with this laptop is that when you upgrade to Windows 8, the system becomes horrendously slow. I tried many times rebooting and installing windows 8, but it's no use.

Nice little laptop..but blue screens aren't good

Chantal, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this little laptop about a year ago. Lately I've been getting blue screens for no particular reason. I buy a lot of Samsung products because I have been very happy with the quality (eg TVs, phones, tablets). Unfortunately the laptop hasn't been quite as good.

Samsung has bad parts!

James Howard, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought my first samsung laptop and right off the start multiple blue screens of death. Never knew samsung had so many faulty issues with laptops. Hard drive had too many issues. Great design, but bad parts installed from factory. I had to buy external parts from better brands. If you have an issue and the laptop is under warranty, they require you return the whole laptop so you better have an extra laptop for the meantime. Overall 3 stars with 5 being the max.

Not Good for Typing

Grandma Ruth, Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I love having a laptop and it does everything my desktop computer did (it's a bit of a nuisance to plug in a disk reader when needed) - but I do a lot of typing and the typing input cursor constantly jumps all over the screen (presumably because of the location of the mouse pad directly under my thumbs). I haven't discovered any way to just quickly disable the mouse pad altogether Covering it doesn't work too well and is cumbersome...

Not bad!

AA11, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: Size: Didn't quite meet my expectations. Not as "thin" as the ASUS and Mac air. Display: Horrible! Screen has this white hue that is impossible to get rid of, and playing with contrast and brightness controls does not help much. Battery: Not even close to the published 6-7 hours, on a good day you might get up to 3.5 hours. Price: at 699 might be a bit over priced, if i wasn't stuck on a PC i would've paid a bit more for the mac air.

Decent, but not amazing ... (and it's not really SILVER)

G. THOMAS, Amazon
8 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an HP 13.3" that was having minor hardware issues after a year and a half. (e.g., bluetooth not stable, integrated webcam not working, track pad was not responsive to scrolling commands at all, etc.) I was excited to try an Ultrabook because I'm always looking for lighter and faster notebooks when I replace them.

Disappointed....quite a lot in fact

brianb, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought one of these Ultrabooks last week, but after having it for 24 hours I've unfortunately had to book its passage back to Amazon. The first thing I noticed about it is how thin it is - it's sleek-looking, feels solid and is light for its size - it weighs in at 1.5kg (probably mainly due to it not having an optical drive), which is very handy for a laptop with a 13.3-inch screen.

Problemas de autonomia.

LARP, Samsung
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Apesar no catálogo dar a informação de que tem uma autonomia para 6,30 horas, esta informação não está correta. A bateria de 4 elementos apenas satisfaz tal como o tradicional, as 4 horas. Já esteve nos serviços de reparação e veio tal como foi. A autonomia para trabalho está disfarçada para proporcionar de uma alavanca à marca. Não estou satisfeito.

A assistência pós venda é uma vergonha.

Castro, Samsung
1 June 2013
  • Summary: O carregador do meu portátil avariou e a Samsung remete-me para uma empresa chamada Dourado e Dourado que existe a 15 kms de Lisboa e só atende telefones a partir das 14 horas (!). Após o contacto dizem-me que tenho que esperar 2 a 3 dias pelo carregador que virá da Holanda. No entretanto faço o quê? Deixo de trabalhar? Uma verdadeira anedota! Samsung jamais!
