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. Degrading speed, poor battery life, the CD is cheap-- I mean CHEAP, the keyboard layout is bizarre and unintuitive, the energy controls do weird shut downs and reboots are required, etc.

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. Almost every feature becomes timed out. I have been thinking of returning it. I have gone back to my four year old Siemens-Fujitsu which I bought second hand and is better in every way.
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 great and it comes with 1001 useless applications from samsung. Why on earth do I need to have Visual C++ on my laptop installed?
