Summary: I wanted to do a little bit of test-driving with this product before putting up my review. I had read reviews rating this notebook on both ends of the spectrum. Some noted issues with the track-pad while others seemed to use it just fine. Some complained about the size of the SSD. Some complained about the quality of the picture/text and the viewing angle. These are the 3 main discrepancies that I saw.
Summary: The computer blue screened within 5 minutes of being on! the Wifi is terrible!! I did speed test with the Samsung and did it with a 5 year old dell. . . . the Samsung barely had .49 download and only 1.4 up.... the dinosaur (old Dell) was significantly higher. WAY to much money for a computer of this price. I like that it is quiet and cool sitting on my lap but it is going back just waiting for info from the seller. VERY disappointed.
Summary: This is a much better product than most of the reviewers below me give credit for. I have had it for about 6 months now and have encountered no problems.It has never crashed or given me any problems and has even run all the video games I installed on it very smoothly even when I add mods. I also see no problem with the display. It is a good size and vibrant colors. Yes it does have a small hard drive( approximately 89 GB when you first open the laptop).
Love it, but screen died after 8 months and customer service was slow

Summary: Absolutely fantastic machine, as others have noted. Touchpad is fantastic. Great battery life. Way cooler looking than Mac Air, though I've seen a gorgeous white Zen book. However, after 8 months, colors suddenly went wacky, and this is when I discovered that Samsung service is not amazing. They use UPS ground for everything. No matter how many supervisors you ask to speak to, it's going to take 3-5 days for your machine to even get to them (Texas).
Summary: I have been using this one for a couple of month now and i am a heavy user. I'm on it day and night and not for chatting, i run heavy Access Queries and programs. Here are my findings: Pros: - Very light and attractive. It catches attention once i get it out of my laptop bag. (That's also worth a lot of money :) ) - Boots very fast and wakes up from sleep in a blink of an eye and i enjoy that every time i switch it on.
Summary: I've used Dell and Thinkpad laptops in the past, so it was a pleasure to try something different in the Samsung Ultrabook. This laptop is very sleekly designed as well as being lightweight and highly portable. The touchpad is intuitive and easy to use. Because of is classy appearance, this is a great laptop for anyone who must work in a public or professional environment.
Summary: Before I bought this laptop from amazon, I researched about this laptop in Korean website and blogs. The review was pretty good. People said this laptop provides the best display angles. While comparing Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C-A01US model and same spec Korean model (NT900X4C-A58), I found out NP900X4C-A01US has 340 nit brightness, while same spec Korean model has 400 nit brightness. I really didnt think there are no differences between NT900X4C-A58 and NP900X4C-A01US.
