Summary: An awesome value if you can pick it up under $500. Beautiful screen and nice, clean lines. The convenience of a tablet with the functionality of a PC. An internal DVD drive would be nice but an external DVD drive allows the form factor to remain small. Speaker sound is crisp and loud.
Laptop did not meet expectations, Customer Service Horrible

Summary: There are two parts to this review. 1st: the laptop itself is somewhat clunky and the design slightly flawed. I started having speed issues almost immediately and the keyboard/track pad lead you accidentally jump the cursor often. The cursor thing is even more annoying than it sounds.
Summary: I had been looking for an 'ultrabook' or close to it as I wanted a 14" or smaller computer that wasn't a pain to haul around. After much searching and trying another Samsung laptop with Windows 8 I finally found that.
Summary: A really great computer, perfect to take to class and to watch movies. I have no negatives on this product, and I am very pleased by it. It was delivered promptly. I would recommend this to any college student or anyone who just wants a lightweight laptop.
Summary: The screen looks awesome, even in direct sunlight. I can play Team Fortess 2 with a lot of action and not drop below 30 fps. I work with scientific computing so having a Trinity core that I can test code out on is nice. I get a little over 5 hours battery life in Windows with the brightness at 60%.
Summary: In less than 10 days, I have returned 2 Samsung laptops. I got this Series 5 in the beautiful deep pink and was using it in battery mode. It was not bad until I decided to take out the power cord for a charge only to be met with oddly loose male and female parts which, as you can imagine, meant...
Summary: Pros: - Very nice design, sleek and elegant (similar to macbook air) - Light and portable - Runs pretty smoothly, i.e. no lagging or delay when opening and running programs (from what I could tell during my short ownership) Cons: - Mine would overheat and crash, and became too hot to touch on the...
Summary: I bought this computer for work since I travel, don't need a CD drive, and did not want a MacBook Air. I started with a MacBook Pro, and returned that for this Samsung - best decision I've ever made. This computer is ultra light and sleek with all the right ports.
Summary: I was looking for a very thin and light computer with a second generation AMD A-series APU chip (7000 series graphics). As far as I can tell, the 13.3 and 14 inch Samsung Series 5 computers were my only options. I chose the 13.3 and I'm very happy with it.
