a good enough laptop

Summary: The laptop feel solid and looks expensive. It's fairly fast, but I'm far from being a computer expert. But for my needs it's more than enough. Only flaw is a full charged battery will only give 4 hours of online time, oh and it's a little heavier then my 14in Dell.
Summary: The mat screen is hideous. Save your money. If I ever mute the sound, I can never un-do it and turn the volume back up. It's broken after less than 3 months. The touch pad is too large and too sensitive, you will find yourself constantly hitting it and moving things by accident. Also, the touch pad goes crazy sometimes and doesn't work well when trying to use two fingers at once.
Summary: I had so much problem with this laptop. Specially connecting with wifi, please do your research on the wifi issue with samsung laptop before buying this machine. I wish I could throw this laptop in trash, but I have spend close to 800 bucks on it. Called samsung cust service as well, no help from them either. Shame on you samsung to came up with such a bad machine.
Summary: This machine is fast, the quick cache is one of those things you didn't realize you were missing until you have it, the screen is clear, the case is tough and its very powerful and flawless for gaming. My one gripe is when using the computer on your lap, by flaw of design, the touchpad doesn't work perfectly.
Summary: i got this laptop refurbished from secondipity for a great price. this is a really solid laptop - backlit keyboard, windows 7 - basically everything i wanted in a laptop for school/work. it is fast enough for my needs - only thing that drives me nuts is the touchpad for the mouse.. but i purchased a wireless mouse which should bypass that problem. other than that- it's a great laptop!!
Summary: I like the thin HD screen with anti-glare / non-gloss. I can use it in well lit rooms without images disappear under reflection of everything. Resolution is higher than most 15.6" screens and lowers well for easier viewing. Outputs easily to HDMI without any adjustments required, unlike VGA outputs. Light sensor automatically adjust screen brightness to reduce eye strain. Download the control softwares from Samsung website for them to function.
Summary: I am quite satisfied with this laptop. It serves my purposes, decent battery life, good performance when the set to high performance, nifty features. What really blew me away was the built in disc tray. I despise trays so that was huge for me. The keys are nicely spaced and the backlit keyboard is another nifty feature. The few things I have to complain about: The track pad was a pain at first but with some programs installed is no longer a problem.
Summary: Got mine from amazon wearhouse. Nicely priced. It comes with 2 licenses for windows 7. The original one and a refurbished one. So you technically get 2 windowses with it. Laptop was brand new, no blemishes. Amazon took the time to reformat the hard drive and didn't bother to install the crapware that these usually come with. Thus windows was pristine.
Summary: It's not as light-weight as I expected it to be, but it's as fast as advertised and very comfortable to use. Runs all of my Adobe Cloud programs and launches them in seconds - compared to 2-3 minutes on my old laptop! Would buy again. Edit: Almost a year in, I think I've found all the little quirks and oddities.
