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.
Summary: I've had this "desktop replacement" for several months now. Its too big for constant travel and the batteries are not very good, but it is a great all around home computer for those who don't like bulky towers. It can handle any game I throw at it on the highest settings. I would trust Samsung's newer models will be just as satisfying.
Summary: This is a fabulous laptop performance wise with one glaring fault. Samsung has not enabled switchable graphics so your stuck using the AMD card all the time. Performance is great, battery life isn't. It makes it less portable (though this laptop is only slightly smaller and lighter than an Abrams Tank). It's beautiful, but more like a LAN box than a laptop.
Summary: I bought 1 month ago, is very good laptop, I think is the best Price/quality laptop for gamers. The only downside is that Samsung put a lot of pre installed Sw and several of them are trials, I had to remove several of them.
Summary: I had my first negative experience about 30 days ago when my OS, Windows 8, ceased receiving Windows Updates. I contacted Samsung and they could not offer any help or support. The OS was shipped as OEM but with an invalid product key.
Summary: I have had this laptop about a month and I must say its the best one I have ever owned. Well worth the money. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is the fact that it has Windows 8. The newer window is god awful, you essentially have to go into explorer to run anything as the app screen is not feasible.
