4 out of 5 eggsJust What I Ordered

Pros: This laptop runs like a champ! The full keyboard is a must-have for me (Acct. Major), but not feeling cramped while using the computer is a great bonus. It can keep up with a lot of what's out there. For what I paid, I got the better end of the deal. I can use my laptop as a substitute for a desktop, *almost*. I use it for games,videos, music, and most importantly, Homework/reports. I've read other reviews that say that this machine is EXTREMELY fragile, but that hasn't been the case for me. I do generally tend to "baby" my devices, but this laptop has made it a full year of use in the classroom, LAN parties, part-time gaming, and media abuse. In addition, the commute to and from school combined with various travel.

Cons: Since it's been over one year since I purchased this machine, it has slowed down (I blame Samsung's bloatware as the primary offender) but that can easily be remedied. When doing gaming for Med-Long durations it can get a bit warm, which is to be expected.

3 out of 5 eggsWhen it works it is great

Pros: For the money at the time it was a very good computer. Fast, worked well. Great screen but very fragile!

Cons: Screen broke after 3 months and stayed in shop getting repaired for 10 weeks. Finally got it back and the drive bay would not open and after 4 more months it would hang on loading Windows and go no further. Now back to shop. I will say that the warranty is only worth the money if you can afford to wait between 8 and 10 weeks for repairs. Repair service is not very good, but I guess it beats buying a new computer.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure that I would buy another Samsung but would tend to stick with HP. I have several of those and they just keep on running without problems. I will not buy another of these insurance policies. I guess that they are ok if you are prone to dropping one or spilling coffee or whatever on it but otherwise if you can't wait for a repair, just buy another. The new one will be a lot better anyway and if yours cant be repaired and it gets bought out chances are you will get very little more than the price of the insurance policy!

1 out of 5 eggsMemory Issues on Arrival

Pros: n/a

Cons: This laptop arrived with constant blue screen errors referencing bad memory. I had to almost immediately ship the laptop to Samsung's repair center at my cost, with servicing to take up to two weeks.

5 out of 5 eggsGood machine so far

Pros: * I love the screen. Beautiful non-reflective matt.
* Linux friendly, installed Ubuntu 12.04, everything worked out of the box.
* It's fast. Downloaded emacs 24.x source, compiled faster than I could have imagined.
* feels sturdy, time will tell.

Cons: * Like others, I would like to have USB 3.
* Built in speakers are a joke, but I haven't found a laptop yet in which they weren't.

Other Thoughts: Not a big gamer, so can't really comment on the graphics, but they work fine for all my needs so far.

3 out of 5 eggsShipping is taking forever.

Pros: I am suspecting the computer to be very advanced based on the reviews and description. Good speed. Turns on fast.

Cons: However, the 3 day shipping takes forever. I ordered my product Friday. It is now Tuesday and I still have no received my product. More than 3 days.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted a whole 2 hours!

Pros: From what I saw out of it, it seems to be a solid laptop! Nice design and fast. (You can go into the bios the change a few battery management setting to make it run faster from what I read) I would have loved to have used it for more than the 2 hours it lasted.

Cons: Last 2 hours and the monitor went blank (like it went to sleep). Giggled the mouse and that is when I noticed the power supply and battery light was on, but the HDD light has stopped. I hard rebooted it to find it not booting to the boot screen or the bios. Samsung says it is a 'hardware failure' (mostly likely the mainboard) and no way to fix it without sending it in.

Other Thoughts: I am currently trying to get this rectified. I had this hand carried out to Africa to replace my current laptop that is on its third deployment and is having issues. Newegg will not refund, only send the laptop to be repaired by Samsung (which is estimated at 4-6 weeks plus the 3 weeks shipping time each way from Africa). Samsung refuses to service the laptop unless I bring it in to a shop in Africa somewhere (they must thing Africa is a small country and not a huge continent) and don't understand the concept of a deployment. So right now I have a credit card dispute open since I can't seem to make progress with either Newegg or Samsung to get this fixed in a timely manner. Personally I just want my money back since I can't use it for what I bought it for (to finish out my deployment). You might have better luck than I did... It seems like a great buy, I just didn't have a crummy experience.

5 out of 5 eggsGood laptop

Pros: Very fast
Boots like Samsung say it will boot.
Very sleek design
Plays games easily no lag.
Very light.
Huge harddrive
Battery LIfe

Cons: Bloatware
Speakers

Other Thoughts: Very nice computer that performs well. The only thing that I would change are the speakers. Right out of the box the speakers sound like they are already blown. But no worries just plug some headphones in and it fixes the problem. Also I got a free xbox with purchase of this computer and who doesn't want something free.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

Pros: * No trouble with source games and Civ IV
* Quiet
* Light
* Matte Screen
* Dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is a breeze
* Boots Ubuntu in ~15 seconds with a HDD not SSD.

Cons: * Personally I'm not a fan of having a num pad on laptops but that is personal prefrence
* Touch pad can be over sensitive with multi-touch gestures
* have to hold down FN key to adjust volume.
* can't get it to boot linux from a live USB flash drive. For whatever reason its not listed as an option in BIOS, but I could be missing something.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice computer for the price. I plan to load some more graphics and processor intensive programs on in the future such as Solid Works and Photoshop but have not had the chance to do so yet. I have a feeling this computer should handle them nicely though.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's fast. Keeps up with my web browsing. The system was easy to set up. Definitely a lot of extra programs I didn't personally want, but beyond that... plenty of room. Plays my movies, my games, and the battery life is Amazing compared to laptops i've had in the past.

Cons: Graphics kind of glitch out on the main game I play. Not sure as to why yet.
