5 out of 5 eggsValue, value, value...

Pros: Features vs cost is probably the best deal out there. Quick boot, especially if you activate the Samsung quick boot feature in Easy Settings which will deactivate the windows splash screen.

Backlit keyboard and a bright enough screen to use outdoors in sunlight.

I love the touchpad. Slick enough to use but enough resistance to make your movements intentional. Two finger scrolling from the touchpad is great.

Fast, fast, fast...

Cons: The Intel Centrino wireless card (6235) has known issues for dropping connection even though signal strength may be perfect.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to update the BIOS from the Samsung site. You will also want to update the chipset to solve a potential dead USB port issue. While you are there, update the Easy Settings software, which has additional features compared to the supplied version.

The wireless connection issue work-around is to get into the Device Manager, Network Adapters, highlight Centrino and open properties. Go the Advanced tab, highlight 802.11n and disable it. This will stop the intermittent connections and make this the best 14" laptop available.

It should be noted that this is a matte screen. This is great for me, but some prefer glossy, especially if they are watching a lot of video. I prefer matte.

This is an awesome computer!!! Quit thinking about it and purchase already...

5 out of 5 eggsgreat machine

Pros: Sturdy build, minmal computer size for the screen size, large, fast harddrive, boots quickly with express cache, great screen resolution and reponse times, long battery life, no bloatware, Samsung's own utility software is actually useful and unobtrusive. While I listen with headphones, the sound is actually the best of any laptop I know of. Great computer for the price.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Great bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Notebook

Pros: - Performance to cost ratio
- Backlit keyboard
- Very portable
- Aesthetics

Cons: - Keys/surface easily show fingerprints

Other Thoughts: This was my first Windows computer in at least 6 years after using Mac for a long time, and I have to say, I wish I'd made the switch sooner. Windows 7 offers a smooth and stable UI with immense capacity for customization, compatability, and adaptability (this is what I missed with the MAC OS). I haven't used Windows 8 yet but from what I can tell, 7 is widely preferred (one of the major selling points of this PC for me).

This computer performs extremely well, considering the price point and size. I do a lot of memory-intensive media work and gaming, and so far everything has gone off without a hitch. For some games with heavy graphics and multi-threaded functions, you will have to turn the settings down to get optimal performance, but that is to be expected with a computer that is so sleek, mobile, and relatively inexpensive.

It would have been great if this came with an SSD, but with the price, I wasn't expecting one, though I will be making this switch soon. Also, as you see above, the shell and keyboard will have to be cleaned often, if you're as obsessive about those things as I am. It is impossible to keep these surfaces free of fingerprints for very long. The machine does come with some bloatware, but not as much as others, and many of the Samsung utilities are very useful (I have taken advantage of the Software Manager many times).

Altogether this is an excellent machine, and I am glad I made this purchase. I look forward to many useful, fun, and productive years with this computer.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Computer for the price

Pros: Super fast
Backlit keys
Lightweight
Tons of power for it's price
Decent sized harddrive
Good sound for the price

Cons: Battery life good, but haven't gotten anything near 8 hours yet. Still playing with power management.

Other Thoughts: I use Photoshop a lot, handling pretty large files, often with multiple layers, so far it's kept up with me.

I multitask extensively. No problem yet.

I also use my computer for music creation and production. So far, that's worked out great.


It's not yet been a week, but so far I LOVE it!

4 out of 5 eggsHuge upgrade! I love it!

Pros: -Sleek
-Light weight
-Easy to transport
-Screen resolution is great - (max 1600x900)
-Keyboard is lit up which is really nice when typing in the dark
-Chiclet keys are easy to type on
-Battery life ~4-8 hours depending on intensity of usage (take advantage of the battery optimization features, they're great)
-Processing speeds are almost instantaneous compared to my old laptop

-I play Diablo 3 on full resolution with ease and Planetside 2 on medium resolution (planetside is sometimes too much to handle, and the memory is maxed)

Overall - Outstanding laptop for its high graphics performance and size

Cons: 6GB of ram - I will be upgrading this soon

Only 2 USB ports - (a 2.0 and 3.0)

4 out of 5 eggsSleek and fast

Pros: -This laptop is amazing. It's very fast with the Intel i5 and the 7200rpm hard drive. The battery life is fantastic (I'm getting around 7-8 hours). The Nvidia Optimus really allows the laptop to save battery when not doing anything graphics intensive.

-The build quality is very strong and of high quality. It is mostly brushed aluminum, except for the bottom, which is plastic (most likely to prevent heat burns).

-The screen resolution is very high, not 1080p, but I was expecting that, seeing as this was only 14" and sub $1K.

Cons: -One thing that bothers me, is that there are only 2 USB ports, 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0.

-There is some bloatware, not a lot, but some actually help to maintain a healthy laptop.

-There is only one headphone/mic jack.

Other Thoughts: I've only had the laptop for a short while, but overall it is a great machine.
