Summary: This was everything I was looking for in a laptop. Its been in steady used for about two years and is rarely turned off. I love the touch screen and keep trying to use my finger on non touch screens since I have picked up the habit on this laptop. I am writing this review with it right now. I upgraded the wifi card to 802.11ac and also upgraded the hard drive to a 1gb Samsung SSD. The GPU can run most games at 1920x1080 at full speed and high graphics.

Summary: I've had this laptop for 6 months now and I love it. Got it at BestBuy for $942, refurbished (although it looked brand new). Pros: - Big, full HD, sensitive touch screen - Beautiful sleek brushed metal design - Battery lasts all day (6-7 hours screen on time) - Full keyboard, including numeric keyboard (keys may feel mushy to some people but you get used to it) - Large touchpad - Amazing, accurate sound quality Cons: - Screen isn't that bright compared to laptops like a...
Summary: The build quality and the features are great but this laptop has some issues. First of all, I noticed there was screen burns. It became annoying and I might contact Samsung because I have a limited warranty still. Second, the hard drive is visible to be slow. Its using SATA 2 while there is SATA 3. There is other laptops that can be better than this for a cheaper value, the issues doesn't annoy me too much but I just want to get this fixed.
Summary: Pros :Ok I've had this computer for over 3 months. Overall a great everyday computer, amazing touch screen, great battery life and the keyboard is alright ( the back lit keyboard makes it hard to see keys sometimes thanks to the keyboard being silver). Now I bought this computer for mostly school work and some light gaming. It can handle most games on high setting without a problem ,very fast processor and dual graphic cards help.
Summary: Seller did a great job of describing the computer and basically came to me in like new condition in a timely manner. Quality is amazing and at a great price considering the condition. I upgraded to samsung ssd when I receive it and it is now the perfect laptop!
Summary: The laptop was delivered with a malfunctioning touchscreen -- static lines flicker through the screen, which is very disruptive. If connected to external monitors, the touchscreen triggers actions on the screen if the laptop lid is closed, such as random clicks, swapping screens, etc. Samsung customer service hung up on me twice, and has not been helpful at all in getting the problem resolved. Do not recommend purchasing a Samsung laptop!
Summary: I wish it had a better keyboard. The touch isn't very good. The track pad doesn't have any mouse buttons, you need to press the corners of the pad somewhere, but not exactly in the corners, you have to press in a little bit. Hatred doesn't describe my felling for this. Whatever happened to the little mouse button they put in laptop keyboards years ago? The display is superb!! But my biggest issue was how slow the hard drive was.
Summary: Let me start off with this laptop could be way better. The screen is outstanding, the touch interface on both the touchscreen and the touch pad are extremely sensitive and work great. Major downfalls for a 1200.00 laptop. 5400 RPM 1TB HDD. Dedicated AMD Video card is a no show with windows 8. My old HP DV6Z-3100 has dual video cards and gets 56 FPS in EvE:Online. This laptop gets 16 FPS in the same settings as my 3 year old laptop.
