Summary: The computer is worth the money. It's a great laptop to take on the go and do work on when you're on the move. It has a pretty solid battery life as long as you put the brightness downIt's extremely portable. Samsung customer service is pretty good, though I do have a bone to pick with them since they claim I voided my warranty even though I didn't. Now I'll harp on some of the cons. This laptop is really meant for people who plan to do just do work and surf.
Summary: I bought this in September, but wanted to write a review because I really like it. I had originally bought a Dell laptop that was on super sale over this one. I ended up returning the Dell due to unimpressive performance and hefty size and paying a few hundred dollars more for this computer, and I am very happy I did. It is so light! It is very fast and easy to use.
Summary: The product is excellent! the only two issues to consider are: Wifi - you must change the settings if using the ultra book with no battery connected, otherwise it won't connect to any wifi. Skype - if the factory skype doesn't work (it comes installed with windows 7) you must install (overwrite) with the newest version of skype, otherwise it won't connect. Apart from that, the ultra book is great and light weight!! Regarding the battery life it lasts about 4-5 hours.
Summary: I would purchase this laptop again. However, with the price of "ultrabooks" coming down, I would hold off or shop around. For the price, I'd expect a sturdier build. Pros: Fast Lightweight Great display Great Battery life Aesthetically pleasing Cons: Not super sturdy feeling Runs hot when using intensive video processes FN keys require driver. Takes about 30 seconds from entering windows for this driver to be active. (Can't mute, dim display, ect).
No slot for a lock, but otherwise an excellent laptop

Summary: I chose this laptop because it was small and lightweight with good customer reviews and a reliable manufacturer. Good: Excellent screen, keyboard, trackpad, speed, ease of use, weight, size. Bad: No slot/port to attach a lock. They have one on the 14 inch model, but not the 13.3 inch model. Do they assume it is so small and light that users will want to take it with them everywhere, including the bathroom?
Summary: So far, I enjoy this laptop (I have had it for 1.5 months). It boots up quickly like they proclaim, the amount of HD storage is great to host a variety of content. The laptop is quiet and the keyboard is fine once you get used to it. After booting to windows, the laptop is still pretty quick. There is one little odd black dot that comes and goes in the right hand corner near the time. Not sure what it is, but not enough to make me dislike the product.
Summary: Very good product, delivers good quality and functions for the ultrabook purpose and price. The keyboard it's a drawback for people who types a lot: home, end, pg up and pg down keys are accessed by function (fn) key. Apart from that I recommend.
