Summary: This machine got rave Top 10 reviews when it was released, had a low price point, and seemed like a lot of bang for the buck. Keypad, chicklet keyboard, good RAM and CPU, great look, etc. It just doesn't have what it takes to run as a basic, day-to-day home laptop.
Summary: Got the 8Gb version, nice n fast, Screen was better on an old Compaq from 1997, absolutely the worst screen ever, Pixelates when rendering every curve,Avoid like the plaque, I will NEVER buy another Samsung product again
Pros: Tech spec, speed
Cons: Screen cant render even basic curves, absolutely awful
Summary: I reckon the people who give this laptop 4 or 5 stars never owned a mac. I got this from work and I must say it doesn't compare to the slightest with my mac at home. It is made from very cheap materials, quite plastiky, it has the worst sound ever with its rubbish speakers, picture quality is not...

Summary: I was looking forward to my Samsung on the basis of the other reviews here. However, it has been a real disappointment. It is slow in every sense. I am tired of watching the little circle showing it is trying to load an internet page and then becoming timed out.
Summary: Laptop was very slow when it was received. Physically, it looked fine. Not sure what was wrong with it, but it was extremely slow. However, the provider was very helpful in working with us to find a way to return it.
