Summary: This was my very first laptop I bought. I've had it for 3 (going on 4) years now. We've had our ups and downs, but I can safely say that I'd recommend this as an everyday laptop. Pros -I love the feel of the keyboard. Some manufacturers don't quite get it right and make keyboards unnecessarily clunky or cluttered. I wanted an actual numeric pad for some number crunching, and this laptop has that all while not messing up the feel of the keyboard. -Quiet cpu.
Good for everyday home use - Bad battery life, needed a replacement in 1 year.

Summary: i bought this laptop in Feb 2011 for 599$ from best buy. Have been using it since then with no problem EXCEPT for battery life. Everything else works just as good. They keyboard is a little different, but once you get used to it, its as good as any other laptop. I love the display and the sound, when i compare it with my toshiba R700 laptop from office. Is this a review?
Summary: Great NB for the price, I've had a few problems with it over the years and just lucky I had a damn good warranty. The battery life kind of sucks too, it was great at 1st, but over a rather short time, about a year, it's gotten laughably bad. Besides that, it's surprisingly powerful and gets even better if you optimize it for performance. It's definitely great of the average person's use, don't look for anything beyond that.
Summary: I bought this computer from BestBuy it has the Wimax imbedded in it for the internet that was why I bought it but Clear 4g internet is slow and drops connection also has limited connection .It took 3 days to hookup at the Geeksquad, I've had to take it in 3 times to be rebooted, lousing all my pictures and data programs. Finally it just quit working altogether.
Summary: I loved this computer... until the battery out of no where fried on it only after a year in use... needless to say it's now just a heavy paper weight, and no it was never constantly charging or any other issues that would have normally caused it to die. I can't believe a battery for a laptop is 100$ total crap! i went out and bought an asus transformer tablet along with the keyboard instead. super happy with it. will never purchase another samsung computer!

It's PCMark Vantage test showed higher score than the Gateway, however, so in the end I thought it was overall the better product, especially as up-to-date features like USB 3.0. I'm sure all of the above run great, but I'm definitely not missing anything in terms of performance with this machine. Depending on the exact features you are looking for though, ...

Summary: I like the metal case which means the laptop is rather heavy but should be durable. This is my first windows 7 experience and so far it has been easy enough to use and very easy to set up. There are features I like very much- it does not take several minutes for it to warm up and load the system, so it is faster than I am used to which is great. Nice keyboard, neat beneath the fingers and large enough for touch typing without error.
Summary: Spent a while looking for a new laptop - read lots of often contradictory reviews - found whole process quite frustrating even though I am a reasonably experienced laptop user. Felt like higher cost machines had disappointing specs, whereas higher spec/lower cost machines had some dodgy reviews, so settled on best compromise - not disappointed so far!
