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. After playing with a windows 8 laptop for a few week, windows 7 was high on my must have list. This laptop is fairly speedy for an AMD processer, but I did ad an extra 4 gigs of ram. I think this helps get the job done a bit quicker.
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 issues charging the battery.
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. I also appreciate the memory and ram on the computer, much more than another product of this size and in its price- range.
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. 2nd: After experiencing a keyboard problem and sending this in to Samsung to repair (under warranty) I've just completed the worst customer service experience of my life.
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%. In Linux I get a little over 4 hours with the same brightness.
Summary: This is my first ultrabook as I cannot afford a proper Mac Book AIr. Guess what this is amazing it is so fast for a thin laptop and runs Modern Warefare 3 brilliantly much better than intel HD3000.
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. There is no backlight on the keyboard which saddened me, but after using this for 2 weeks, I'm still in heaven. That so far has been the only "flaw" if you could even call it that.
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. The laptop comes with 4 GB of RAM and an open slot into which I installed a second CT51264BC1339 Crucial 4GB 204-PIN Sodimm DDR3 4GB stick of RAM.
Summary: PROS: Very small footprint. Box is small, only a few documents and charger included. Slim profile, sleek, and powerful. Performs just as good as it looks. Two regular USB ports, One USB 3.0. HDMI and Mini HDMI out. Media card reader (4in1) Overall I am very happy with everything. I wanted a smaller laptop without losing certain features. I have this little thing hooked up to my 46" LED via HDMI. I cannot complain at all. I play some games on it with no hiccups.
