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: 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: 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.
Summary: I've had the laptop for over 4 months now and its runs great. It does well in switching from the regular graphics card to the Nvidia. I have played SC2 on it and runs it well on a medium setting. The Webcam is nothing too crazy, its your typical cam. battery doesnt run too hot either. Only thing that irks me sometimes is the brightness I just can't seem to get it to my liking.
Summary: i bought this laptop for my junior year teenage step-son. everything about this comp is smooth and elegant, and the quality is top notch. looks wise, its smart and professional, as it is sexy and slim. performance to price wise, its top of its class. when it comes time for me to buy something, especialy online, i obsess over learning everything there is to know about the product, its quality/specs and its competition.
Summary: Good overall Laptop: fast, feels good typing, great bang for the buck! My only qualm with the PC is the battery life. It feels like when you are using graphics-intensive programs, the battery drains fast. Still, nice laptop overall.
