Summary: It is an excellent laptop. Very light. I bought two of them this black Friday and migrated on Saturday from my old (2010) laptop without any problem. With its SSD buffer drive this laptop is flying. It is much faster than my old one.
Summary: in my opinión Windows 8 is not very friendly, but thats OK I am stiil learning triks! the touch screen has been a very usefull tool Samsung is doing very well, I hope warranty and services works as well to!!!!
Summary: This is a great laptop. Or tablet with a keyboard. It's really a hybrid between a laptop and a tablet. If you're on the go like me and you need something powerful and light, this is it! Features: 1) Long battery life. Depending on what I'm doing, I can get up to 8 hrs. 2) Bright screen for movies 3) Light and thin with a slick metal design 4) Touch screen! Man, once I had the touchscreen interface, I just stopped using the mouse or the touchpad.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for my girlfriend a few months ago for graduate school. Its light and has great battery life. However with windows 8 and the preinstalled samsung bloatware this thing was laggy and unimpressive. Besides the underwhelming performance from the factory, she absolutely hated windows 8. I would definitely recommend this laptop, if you "downgrade" to windows 7.
Nice Ultrabook at a reasonable price with Windows 8
9 August 2013
Summary: Like it with the Windows 8 but sometimes the touch feature doesn't operate and I have to log off and back on. The numbers pad is only on top and not on the side as well which would make it easier to enter numbers... Also, the charger already broke on me; it broke at the base where you plug it into the laptop....Be careful that is doesn't stretch too far while charging, but I found a new one at a reasonable price on ebay. Overall, I like it!
Summary: Great ultrabook - fast, snappy, does all I need it to. It does have on memory slot, and I dropped in an 8GB stick to bump it up to 12GB of RAM. I considered upgrading the HDD to 1TB, but it's an extra slim, so I'll have to wait a few months/years until technology advances that far. All in all, a great laptop! Definitely worth the money.
Summary: This Ultrabook has spoiled me forever. Full size power and performance in a lightweight product that I use daily. My 2-year old Toshiba Satellite laptop feels like it weighs a ton compared to this one. Battery length is excellent (almost 6 hours unless watching videos, maybe 4 1/2 - 5 hours) and sound quality is much better than expected although I usually use headphones, it's nice to have a laptop that you can hear clearly through its own speakers.
Summary: I can not rate this notebook from first hand experience because it was a gift to my 22 year old granddaughter. I can tell you, however, that she thinks it is the best computer she has ever owned or seen.
