Other Thoughts: I purchased this Samsung as an early Christmas gift for my girlfriend who happens to be a teacher. She was desperately in need of a new laptop since her previous one had kicked the bucket recently.
I spent forever looking for a machine that had decent specs from a brand I was okay with and finally found this one with a great price and rebate offer.
She likes the machine. One of the main reasons I purchased this particular model was the AMD video card. She likes to dabble in a little gaming (Primarily Sims 3). Works as well as expected for word processing and web surfing.
I personally dislike Windows 8, but she tells me she's getting used to it.
The only negative note is the speaker seems to be blown out of the box, anything past 18 (out of 100) volume level sends lots of crackling audio. This product wasn't eligible for Newegg's RMA process, so I haven't replaced it. She can't be without a computer, especially not having one for a month before. Advance RMA was off the table, and I will probably end up contacting Samsung when the school year dies down a bit. Never had any issue like this before.
