Summary: I find the Samsung JAO8US is a great computer. It's loaded with Windows 7 which is a great operating system. Important feature with this computer it has VENTS on the back so it DOES NOT OVERHEAT. It's great for gaming, emails, download Amazon Music, download Big Fish Games etc...I can also watch movies and music cd's example Richard Marx Night Out With Friends and Stories to Tell the 3rd cd is at Shepard's Bush London.
Summary: I have had my Samsung laptop for about 2 years now and it still works like new! I do agree with the other reviews that at times things can be laggy but it does not happen very often. The computer is great for school work and just surfing online.If you are looking for a reliable computer for school then this is it. However, it is a little heavy but you do have a nice size screen. All in all definitely depends on what you want to accomplish on your laptop.
Summary: I find these Samsung R540 machines to be of high quality I like the CD/DVD ROM it's made well. I never have any trouble with them. I actually own the JAO8US versions. Windows 7 is run in the machines I have purchased. These are worth the money. Make sure to get actually pictures from the seller top, bottom, both sides. Check the bottom for the build date. Make sure seller covers the numbers of the Window 7 key.
Summary: I purchased this strictly for college and a bit of Sims 3. Like others I have noticed the touch pad interferes with typing unless you are typing PROPERLY with your wrists off any surface, but none of us do that..... So I disabled it in the bios and purchased microsoft 3500. Other than that I have upgraded the SDD to run my games and programs better. I had an issue with it powering off when I used Sony Vegas 12. Eventually tried some canned air and it works great!
Summary: Today's Prayer Dear God, Thank You for Your Word; Your Word that is like honey to my lips and balm to my soul. I pray that the words that go forth out of my mouth shall be "pleasant words, like a honeycomb," to the people around me. I want my words to be like "sweetness to the soul and health to the bones," so that I may encourage others, build them up, and point them to You. If I may share just an inkling of the love and sweetness You give to me..
Summary: really liked the price and the hardware features it came along with. Performance wise it gave me one of the best experiences I had using a laptop. It wasn't light as a feather but light enough to carry around the only complain I have for this is the keyboard felt a bit cheap but at the price I got I'm fully content.
Summary: Nominal laptop that works as described. Core i3 CPU reasonably fast. Sound is poor and weak. Should have shipped with USB3. Mousepad is in the way - thumb constantly causing unintended actions. Feels a little flemsy but working perfectly without special care for 2+ years now. Support and updates from Samsung don't seem to exist. Overall - good value I'd say.
Pros: Bright display, Realistic color, reliable
Cons: mousepad poorly located, poor and weak sound, samsung updates and support, cover doesn't have latch
