Great Laptop, battery life weak, but to be expected.

Summary: Decent stats all around. I picked this up to do some light gaming back in December of 2010 and I'm posting this review from it today. Since then, I've only had to replace the keyboard for two keys (one non-responding, one semi-responding) which took a bit of Google-fu and about $20 off Ebay.
Summary: It's definitely a very bad computer. ThE main problem is the overwarm of the computer and this turns off all the time. everytime there is a delay in work situation, their next step is turned off. Unfortunately Samsung did not respond to this request.
Summary: Was looking for a laptop that was pretty fast, screen not larger than 14". Ideally wanted a laptop with a aspect ratio mode for applications rather movies. (One more reason why Ipad is selling better than other tablets I think - aspect ratio ) Relatively light but still more a desktop replacement AND very well designed (nice keyboard, LED etc). Definitely not a underpowered laptop. First Samsung laptop for me..
Summary: Comments about Samsung Q430 Notebook: So I came into the laptop buying scene again after a long time, so it took me awhile to figure out what I was looking for in a laptop as well as what kind of specs would meet those needs. Essentially I just graduated college and have moved to another country for a job. Therefore, I needed a pc that had a good amount of storage while being lightweight so that I could travel with it.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Easy To Use, Fast, Lightweight, Reliable Performance
Summary: I wanted to replace my 5 year old Dell Inspiron and this laptop was good enough. What I liked about the computer was the quick boot up. It took me less than a minute to get on the internet from the moment I pressed the power button. I have never had performance issues with this computer. The graphics on this laptop are good but not great.
Summary: I just bought a laptop SAMSUNG Q430 14 inch. When I first turned on the computer a screen appears saying that the system is unable to load Windows due to prior software / hardware removal. A Windows 7 installation CD was requiered. I immediately returned the item, very disatisfied since I was needing it to take it with me to leave it as a present for my son who lives abroad. I miss the opportunity an I have now to buy another laptop at a higher price!!.
Summary: Just wanted to let everyone know about that great deal that Amazon Warehouse Deals was offering. I purchased this laptop (the Samsung Q430) off of Amazon about a month ago. It was selling for $899, but they also had a 'used' price for $529. When I added it to my cart, it took me to Amazon Warehouse Deals which is an area of Amazon that sells open box items.
