Summary: Context for this review: I bought this laptop new (retail overstock), last week for under $700 - it is not worth the list price or price here. I got this to replace a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2 in 1 - main issue was it having too few ports, and this was around the same price and had an additional usb...
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.

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...
Summary: Its fast, very responsive. The only downside is the boot up is laggy, slows down an sometimes freezes for a bit an then resumes. it could be just my model. i would recommend it. the battery life is amazing i get 8+ hours a on single charge only thing missing is an SSD an it would be a 5
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.
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).
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.
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.
