Pros: Pretty beefy graphics capabilities, I've been able to run Borderlands 1 and Fallout New Vegas on high graphics with no problems.
Feels pretty light and the battery life is decent, even when watching movies
Cons: I've been running into issues getting the keyboard and trackpad to wake up after sleep/hibernate. Every now and then I'll open my laptop which wakes it from sleep mode, but the keyboard and trackpad will be unresponsive and can only be fixed from a hard reset.
The only spot on the case that heats up is on the left side, i.e. where your wrist rests for WASD, which is a bit unfortunate for gaming. It'd be fine if the right side heated up and the left stayed cool but this is not a huge deal i guess.
The trackpad and mouse buttons are a little cheap feeling and not as sensitive as I would prefer. Compared to the awesome trackpad on my asus, the one on this machine feels a little crummy.
Other Thoughts: The colors seem a little blown out compared to the displays of other computers I use. I'm not sure if it's the samsung screen or the settings in win8. There are display "themes" you can play around with, but it was pretty drastic at first before I got used to it.READ FULL REVIEW
