Summary: I've had this laptop for a year however, difficulties were identified right away. The cursor is variable skips all over the page when writing. I was recommended to press F5 every single time in order to make sure that this does not happen, however then I cannot move the arrow to other parts of the screen. Also, despite Microsoft Office being included in the product review, I am finding that every few months, I have to call the company and have them reinstall the program.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for two years. I love how compact it is and the mat screen. However, the batter only lasts for two hours now. I have taken very good care of my laptop and the hinge that connects the screen and computer just cracked and three broken plastic screws fell out! After only 2 years of use. Will never buy a samsung anything ever again. It's going to cost $250 to fix.
Summary: It was alright when I got it, the battery life is acceptable. Only problem is that a few weeks after getting it, it got a "Disk Read Error" and all the 'Ctrl-Alt-Del' in the world hasn't brought it back. Maybe i'm just bad with laptops, maybe that's what happens when you pay for a used computer that costs less than $400.
Summary: I'll keep this short. I loved the laptop except for one thing. The Intel Centrino WiFi card. WiFi won't stay connected. It's a common and known issue (google it) I contacted Samsung & Intel. Samsung was totally useless. Intel is slowly working on it, but 6 months after i returned the laptop they still haven't fixed the issue. It's a shame too because this machine has a great feel and substance otherwise.
Summary: The wi-fi didn't work at all when I first bought it. I applied the Windows updates and it worked sporadically. Eventually the wi-fi died completely. I spent hours on the phone with Samsung employees who didn't speak English. I eventually returned the unit for repair. When I received it the wi-fi was working. Again I applied the OS updates and the wi-fi died. DO NOT BUY THE SAMSUNG ULTRA SERIES 5. THIS PRODUCT IS AN EXPENSIVE BOOKEND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Summary: The Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook was everything I was looking for in a laptop. I'm going off to college next year, and I wanted something slim and portable (without having to break the bank on a MacBook Air) that was both fast when it came to surfing the web and gaming. All gamers should keep in mind that this ultrabook will not suit advanced graphics. Don't expect to be playing Battlefield or Crysis.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over a year and have been having issues. When the laptop's working fine, it's a nice product. It's pretty fast, the display's nice, the design is sleek, and all that (except for the heat). It's serves well for a high schooler. But last Christmas (which was 9 months after buying the product) I had to send it to their service center to get it fixed.
