Great Overall Value
Pros: Very solid construction, elegant design, lightweight, and although this technically removes it from the strict ultrabook category I appreciate the main hard drive's 500GB capacity (although it tries to slip in by having a much smaller SSD partner drive to boot the system). It does have a quick boot time and is very responsive overall.
Cons: I still get much longer battery life out of my older ASUS UA30. There's no backlit keyboard, but this isn't really a con to me. Although becoming more standard, that feature is still a luxury versus necessity.
Other Thoughts: Battery life is adequate, but not stellar. You can get the maximum life by changing the power settings (which come in Samsung's own presets). I can get a maximum of around 6 hours when using lower power settings. My older ASUS easily pulls off 9 hours.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: This is a nice, stylish ultrabook. It is very portable and ideal for professionals on the go. It seems very snappy and responsive, and should be able to run just about any productivity application. Appears to be well constructed.
Cons: I do have a few gripes:
Other Thoughts: It comes with a single 4 GB DDR-3 SO-DIMM. Add another stick for 8 GB total in dual-channel mode.
