Very low and unresponsive.

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. It's just not as agile as I think it should be
Almost a really good laptop/ultrabook (wifi issues)

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.
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!

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.
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.
Summary: after opening the laptop, something is happening at the left bottom of the screen. it is like someone is touching it frequently ( see the video, [...] ) and it does not let me do anything on it. Also there is too much heating. After a while, i cannot touch the bottom of the laptop.
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.
