1 out of 5 eggsSucks!

Pros: Power Turns on

Cons: The LCD Display does not work - can plug into a external monitor though.

If you like a blank grey screen with nothing on it, then this is the computer for you!

3 out of 5 eggsPoor keyboard

Pros: Pretty easy set-up. Not too much bloatware. Machine is fast enough for me. Decent price on sale.

Cons: The worst thing is the keyboard. Cheap feel, and virtually no tactile feedback. The keys are squeezed together, and not raised. All have the same smooth surface. It's easy to hit the wrong one. The Delete key is tiny and right above Backspace. The right Shift key is displaced left, so it's not right under the Enter key.

The touch pad is too big. The edges of my palms rest on it when typing. Had to turn of off most scrolling and zooming functions, because I was getting random motion and window switches while typing. The pad action is erratic--when you want to scroll, it's hit or miss (literally).

Samsung left out a thumb-wheel volume control and wifi on-off switch. They can only be controlled by the Fn-F... keys, or by clicking on the tray icons. Somewhat annoying.

During set-up, there's a step where the system wants to partition the hard drive in two parts--no idea why. Didn't pay enough attention, now I have C:(178 GB) and D:(267 GB) -- ???

Other Thoughts: Hopefully, I'll get used to the keyboard. Touch pad not so annoying after turning off most scrolling/zooming features.

4 out of 5 eggsCan't beat it!

Pros: Great display, look, feel, overall performance! I paid only $399 on sale so this was, I feel, I screaming value!

Cons: HDD died after 3 weeks!

Other Thoughts: OK, the HDD died. It happens. I had to send the laptop in...I'd rather they sent me a new HDD but at least it was replaced with no cost to me. I added another 4GB of ram (total=8GB) set the CUP to run at 2.8 all the time and at a LOWER voltage with K10! (AMD sets the voltages way too high initially) disabled most of the Aero interface and get a Windows Experience of 5.9 (3D graphics=6.5, CPU=6.6 and ram=7.3) Replacing the HDD with a 128GB SSD (I have 1TB NAS) and will sell this brand new 500GB.
