Pros: -Display is crystal clear and smooth
-Lightweight and very portable
-Runs quiet (no noisy fan)
-It gets slightly warm to the touch but not much
-Backlit keyboard (keys are really smooth and very even (for someone who use a computer all day, I can really appreciate the high-quality keyboard)
-Recovery options are easy to use (if you want to go back to factory settings)
-Windows 7 compatible (did not say Windows 8 when I went through Boot Camp)
Cons: -No FireWire ports
-No Ethernet port
-No optical drive (not a big deal for me but some people might consider this a con)
-I don't think it's Windows 8 compatible
-No recovery disks or partition that I saw (you hit OPTION+R to get to recovery menu and YES, you need a WIFI connection)
-Could use better support on how to install Boot Camp or Recovery back to factory defaults straight out of the box
-Battery is not removable
-RAM is NOT upgrade-able
-HDD is not easy to replace (ifixit dot com for help)
Overall Review: I was able to load Windows 7 with a little help (web searches) for some instructions.
Pros: It is a genuine Samsung cartridge and works as expected. No issues. Packaging was clean and undamaged.
Overall Review: I always recommend buying OEM toner cartridges. After having to clean toner out of printers for 5 years from defective "re-manufactured" or "recycled" cartridges, I learned my lesson. (I was a field tech for 5 years).
