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: This computer was good only for the first two months or so, then it started overheating constantly and burning out the chargers. I've been through several chargers already even with a separate laptop cooler to go with it.
Summary: I've owned this laptop for roughly 3 years and am not impressed. I decided to purchase it because of the low price and high feature package. In the first year it had to be sent in for repair (which was covered). The blue screen crash kept occuring. Now it's happening again. The power jack has caved into the unit and we are relying on an external battery charger to keep it going. Not the best purchase I've made.
Excerpt: This laptop rocks! Everyone in my family has Macbooks. Not that I'm jealous, but they are very sleek sexy computers. For casual use (web browsing/ text editing) I'm always caught borrowing one of their laptops. The two downsides to Macs however is that they cost a fortune, and aren't nearly as powerful as they should be for the price. That's where this laptop comes into play. It's as light and sleek as any Macbook I've ever seen.
Excerpt: After my Inspiron died (may it rest peacefully), I embarked on a journey to obtain a new laptop to replace my old one.I was in search of a notebook that was able to run tons of software at once without lag and simultaneously browse the web with ease. Also, I had my eyes on various features (which I felt were important), notably an HDMI port, a sleek LED display, and awesome graphics card.
Excerpt: When I first got my Samsung Q430, I wasn't very happy with the selection I made. The main reason was my internet wouldn't work in a lot of places. On top of that, I thought if I had to pay so much for it, I would at least hope that the internet would work. Even up to this day, I'm not able to use the internet at my girlfriend's house. However, at the time, it seemed like one of the better laptop's out there.
Excerpt: I work at a large electronics retailer and I see laptop after laptop. None had intrigued me as much as the Samsung Q430 did, the price point and all of the features inside the laptop were phenomenal. After constantly playing with it, I finally broke down and bought it after my previous laptop was beginning to die. I have never been happier with it! Speed The Q430 series that I got (the Q430-11) features an Intel i5 processor @ 2.4 GHz. What does that mean?
Excerpt: The Samsung Q430 is one of Samsung's first attempts at a mass market laptop. The laptop was executed very well and comes from a very reputable brand. The laptop is silver in color and it looks beautiful. The laptop is extremely light, which allows it to be portable, pefect for around the home or at the office. The keyboard on this laptop is particulary nice because it is spaced out well and doesn't require a large amount of force to push down on keys.
