Very low and unresponsive.

Roberto Bárcenas, Amazon
30 November 2014
  • Summary: I don't know if it's just me. Aesthetically the laptop is a 10, but performance it's been like a 5. Every time I get it back from sleep it takes about 2 o 3 mins to finally awakes and much of the time it becomes very slow responsive.

Almost a really good laptop/ultrabook (wifi issues)

Anonymous035, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: There is a known issue with Intel wifi hardware/software that Samsung and Intel haven't bothered to fix. I've had the laptop for over a year and still can't get it corrected. The wifi will connect but is sporadic at best. It probably works 20% of the time.

Didn't like

Vladimir Nemirovsky, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: It was incredibly slow and either had some defects or viruses. I never figure out which. After running Norton scans and running anti malware products for few days I gave up. Contacted the seller. To my surprise, they were very helpful and accepted the return without any issues.

If you have the money to waste, waste it on something else!

M. Stern "Shutterman", Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: I usually think most negative reviews are due to defective items or people not using the product correctly. In this case, the negative reviews couldn't be more accurate and I have little to add, other than my low rating.

Ultrabook...More like Ultra-suck!

M. E. Hubert "mountain troll", Amazon
17 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop about 3 weeks ago and exchanged it today for a Macbook Air. 1st complaint: Windows 8 Windows 8 is not user friendly or easy to get used to.... did not enjoy having to go online to look up how to do simple things. The app tiles are obnoxious and not handy.

Light weight, heavy bloatware

  • Summary: The hardware Samsung used in this laptop is stellar but through their own execution of software implementation they have cheapened their own product. Pros 1) The battery life is great.

Don't like the touchscreen

  • Summary: A lovely looking light little ultra book, unfortunately after I had it set up, the touch screen ran away with itself. There was obviously a fault with it so I returned it for a full refund.

Not Particularly Good

Kit, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a high-end Samsung laptop, and being highly satisfied with that laptop I decided to purchase this Sumsung touchscreen laptop. In fact I purchased 2 of them, one from Amazon and one from Best Choice.
