Summary: It lasted about a year of average use. Then everything was slow, computer wont boot up half the time, it would just sit there in a black screen. My Samsung phone also only lasted a year, staying away from all Samsung products from here out.
Summary: I'm not a techie person, so I can't speak to the specifics of computing power, RAM, etc. But I can say that this is an amazingly frustrating computer to have. It is constantly requiring updates and rebooting, which takes FOREVER.
After 14 months of use, the mother board need to be replaced ($750)

Summary: I am very dissapointed with my purchase. It seems that this is a typical problem for this model. The warrany was only for the first 6 months and therefore I will have to buy a new laptop. This time I will go for Lenovo or Asus. I won't buy anything else from Samsung in my life...
Summary: The spacebar constantly got stuck on this unit. I would be taking away with out looking and the when I would glance and the page, I had one extremly long run-on sentence. Stay away. Hopefully newer models have been fixed.
Summary: This laptop was great ...at first.....white spot on screen after 4 months of use. Also imprint of keys is permenantly on screen. After having this laptop 4 months I was ready to replace it (I replace my laptop once a year) Now having the screen/keyboard issues only progress I will be having to...
Summary: Maybe by laptop was a lemon, that can happen, and it has, to me. My past two computers were Lenovos. Had to send one in twice. Painless and FREE! Samsung customer service is the polar opposite. First they assumed that I had done something to cause the problem.
I didn't want to believe the negative reviews either

Summary: Oh yes, I've read all the articles and reviews about this laptop before buying it. I thought, no way could the touch pad be as terrible as everyone describes. I guess I have taken the touchpad for granted all these years.
Summary: Had this laptop for less than a month before the charging circuit gave out. The system is very poorly designed. The power supply maxed out at 90 watts but the laptop needs about 98 watts under load (new Call of Duty gave it a good run for its money).
Summary: I can tell you right now, this computer is poorly designed and poorly serviced. My laptop has already been back to Samsung THREE TIMES!! The space bar has never worked right! I type with my hands in an upright position and usually only tap the outside edges of the space bar.
