Summary: I've had it for a few years. The case is sturdy - well built. It's powerful. I use Linux on it to extend its usefulness over time.Do yourself a favor - if you buy this one - you must make sure to ALWAYS disconnect the charger from the laptop when the light turns green. If you don't - and you leave the charger connected longer - you will damage the internal battery.
Love it and it is a keeper for sure, but there are some caveats to consider.

Summary: Love this laptop, it is powerful and sleek, and I have absolutely no regrets in buying it. The screen is beautiful and it is fast. The backlight of the keyboard is absolutely stunning and you would have no trouble typing in the dark. There are however, definitely some caveats that I'd like to mention for potential buyers: 1) My keyboard somehow wore out after a couple months of typing.
Summary: + latest configuration + cheaper compare to other + fast start up time + decent battery time - at least 4 hours while working + separate number keys are handy + speakers are good - cursor position moves to different location on the screen while typing. It could be because palm area below thumb touches the tracking pad. I would keep the tracking pad a right most side of the laptop, below number keys.
Summary: It is absolutely awesome. I completely love it. Fast, beautiful, and FAST. What would I change: It has 8GB ram and a chipset that supports 16, but 4GB of the RAM is integrated into the motherboard and not upgradeable. So 12 is the max. Lame. It is a mild pain to swap the hdd, and one I did, it has always been a creaky and loud sounding laptop. The plastic just seems cheap on that bottom plate. Anyway, I would buy it over again in an instant.
A great laptop..just watch out for the version you choose!

Summary: I bought this laptop a month ago. It's great... but. If you go for it, don't get the Best Buy version. Go for the one with the retro lighted keyboard. Absolutely a must with those black keys!! Especially when light goes away... The wifi card is s... I had to change it otherwise I would have gone mad. The Broadcom that comes with is fine if you have your router 10cm from the laptop. Weird cheap choice from Samsung! I come from a LG S1 Dual which was amazing.
Brilliant laptop, great performance, overall very pleased

Summary: I bought this laptop for college and to provide me with everything that I might want out of a single computer for four years, and so far it has not disappointed. The best thing by far is the screen. It's rarer 1600x900 screen is surprisingly nice, and the screen has a nice dull matte to it, which means that the colors are still vivid, but it doesn't hurt your eyes to look at it for a long time. Overall performance is pretty damn good.
Summary: Very nice and lightweight design. Very performing PC too. 2 drawbacks however: 1. The screen is matte; I thought it was glossy. 2. It's very hrard to get used to the mousepad. I ended up with a new, small-sized mouse.
