Other Thoughts: Being OCD about any computer that I own, I can't stand any proprietary software (bloatware) that comes pre-installed. And unfortunately, this computer comes with plenty of it. Also, Asus decided to waist another 10 gigs worth of space on a factory backup. In most cases this wouldn't be much of an issue, but you only have 128GB's worth of space on the HD - Bad decision, Asus. Anyway, so I used an external dvd drive and reinstalled a clean version of Windows 7, which was not difficult at all. Problem solved. It always surprises me how much better a stock Windows 7 experience is. I can't say enough good things about this laptop/Ultrabook. I love it! (Just re-install Windows 7 and you will be fine). The SATA III SD - AWESOME!
One negative thing though, the trackpad is very frustrating to use. I detest trackpads in general and use a wireless mouse at all times, so this isn't that big of a deal for me, but I thought that I should note this.
Other Thoughts: This board rocks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful and elegant looks. 24 inches of HD awesomeness. 1080P resolution. I hooked up a blu-ray player up to this monitor just to see the picture quality, and I have to give it up to Samsung - Great job! It looks great as a PC monitor to. How can this monitor that has more features than most of the other Samsung monitors cost less? It even has a regular Antenna In and tv tuner. It has inputs for DVI, HDMI, component, VGA, Digital audio out, built-in speakers...
Cons: The only shortcoming that this Monitor has is that in the bottom left corner, the colors are slightly washed out. However, it's not something that I ever notice because it is very slight, and you have to really look for it.
Other Thoughts: I only paid $290 for this monitor/HD television, and what a steal. You better get one of these before they sell out. I have a feeling that they aren't going to sell this model anymore. In my opinion, with this monitor Samsung is giving the customer everything they could want and more for a very low price. I am amazed and astonished at just how much I got for the money that I paid.
PS - Don't pay attention to anyone who gripes about the built-in speakers in the unit. I use the monitor all the time as a tv, and the speakers sound fine. If you want great sound from any device, hook it up through a receiver with good speakers.
