Buy it, but be aware you may well have to spend 10 USD for a new backspace

Summary: I bought this laptop as a gaming machine, and I am extremely happy barring a couple of minor issues. Having had it 18 months, I have never found a game I could not run at max specs without issue. It's good looking and runs well. My only criticisms would be: The whole performance settings thing is weird, just leave it on max is what I imagine everyone does.
Summary: Based on reviews I read of this product all around the internet, I was excited to get this computer for gaming. Unfortunately, almost a month into owning it, the screen went black and there was no help from Samsung other than for me to ship it back to them to repair. I guess I got a lemon because I know many people like their products. What I will say is how wonderful it was to be able to return it to Amazon and get a full refund with no problem. YAY Amazon!
Summary: Likes: Nice CPU at time of purchase The jog dial to adjust CPU frequency Function buttons for volume, wifi, keyboard light Bright LCD screen LCD resolution 1920 x 1080 Multi touch pad is decent (It's pretty close to the Macbook Pro but still not perfect.) Decent audio from built-in speakers Dislikes: Keyboard (mushy) and my 'F' key is already unusable Power cord connector to laptop, should be L angle (I'm always afraid I'll break it off the laptop.
Summary: To put it succinctly, this laptop has it all. Even the Blu-ray player which is one of the main reasons I got it. The only negative for me so far is the weight, but with everything they packed into this baby I knew it was slightly heavier when I purchased it so I am not going to mark it down for that.
Summary: Powerful computer and pleasant design. It is huge though, weighing in at about 17lbs, so not the best for travel. I believe there are comparable computers out now that weigh much less. Regardless, for a hardcore gamer, this is a great buy. I am able to simultaneously run Diablo 3, Star Wars Knights of Old Republic, and background programs without problems. My biggest issue with this computer is that it runs windows 8. I really like the idea of 8, but it needs more work.
