Summary: I bought this computer after conducting research on various sites and reading copious reader reviews. As a consultant who travels for work and lugs this behemoth with her, let me give a few caveats to this beast of a laptop.
Summary: Regardless of the great features of this laptop, there are serious flaws. The first I received would not consistently charge. There was something loose in the motherboard. The second I received, the AC adapter died within a few weeks.
Summary: Purchased on Saturday from Best Buy and couldn't get past the 1st screen as it froze. Took 15min of Samsung support to get past the start up screen. Once in, I placed it on network to get it upgraded for Windows Pro 7 and realized it had almost no download speed (upload was full speed).
Summary: I bought this on Best Buy, but ended up returning it after one day, but I thought I'd give my feedback as there are some things that you may want to know that they do not tell you. First, if you want to use this with Linux, good luck!
