Summary: The speed and performance are excellent on this notebook. It would nice if you could get to the hard drive without voiding the warranty. The area where your hands go also heats up quite fast so it may be good to invest in a pad or something.
Great formfactor, some functionality is sacrificed.

Summary: So first and foremost this is a great looking laptop. I get compliments on it all the time. The processor is quick enough to handle most task without a problem. I don't game so video performance is not an issue for me. My 2 gripes 1. the hinge on the screen is very loose, the laptop will close itself when I am laying in bed watching a movie. 2. colors displayed on the monitor are awful. Not an issue with word and excel but for pictures and movies, the color is bad.
Summary: I've had this laptop for about 5 days now. I'm still getting used to it, but here are my thoughts so far. Pros: good size screen lightweight feels nice quiet Cons: touchpad is horrendous. no left click or right click buttons which makes things much more difficult. i blame apple for this disastrous concept. touchpad is also responding very poorly. scrolling is very very very difficult. not sure yet if it's something i'm doing or not. screen is not incredible.
Summary: I really like this laptop. I'd like it more if it was quad core but it does fine by me. I primarily use it as a desktop with an external monitor (Plugable UD-3900 USB 3.0 thingy). I've had it almost two months now and quite enjoy it. It can be a bit hard to open due to the thinness but that's not really a big deal.
Summary: Pros: -It's light. Super light. People are jealous. Even the power supply is light. -The screen is amazingly bright. (too bright often!) -Most hardware worked out of the box under Fedora Linux, including sleep/hibernate functions. -Wonderful touchpad using windows. Cons: -Keyboard key travel is too short and takes some getting used to. As a heavy typist, I suspect I'll end up beating this keyboard to an early death, but time will tell.
Summary: Works great, is a sweet, sleek laptop. I agree with other reviewers that the lid can be hard to open, and the display hard to see if you don't have it at the right angle, but am still happy with it overall!
Summary: Get the 256 Gb SSD. 128 Gb is very limiting for power users with lots of applications and documents/files.
Pros: Very lightweight for a 15" screen. 1600x900 resolution is the right pitch for this size screen to make text legible. Excellent battery life, 6+ hours of heavy use. Screen is very bright. Blazingly fast with the built-in SSD and core-i7. Thin, thin, thin. Ethernet dongle included. USB 3.0 and built-in SDHC reader--excellent!
Cons: The display is slightly disappointing by Samsung standards. Although it is phenomenally bright, it does suffer from a fairly limited viewing angle compared to high-end LCD monitors. Tiin construction requires dongle for wired network of video output. Video dongle is not included. Of course it costs to buy lightweight and fast. Not inexpensive
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.
