I was debating over a very expensive/small Apple MacBook Pro, and this lap top. For price and size, this won hands down! It offers so many more things that Apple makes you pay extra for. Why spend over $1,000 for a 13" lap top? I've had this lap top since September and it has not given me one problem!!! (knock on wood) I love it! I recommend it! I have Samsung tv's, the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus and you can't go wrong with Samsung. Great lap top!

I bought this laptop on Amazon without ever seeing it in person. I am pleased to report that the machine is everything I had hoped for and more. This is my first Samsung. My previous machines have been Gateways & HP's. I loved the Gateways, but I do not have anything kind to say about HP. This Samsung had a better price than the new Gateways and the product appears to be of a nicer quality than my previous machine. I'm a casual internet user. I read articles & visit websites, no gaming or anything. And so, I feel comfortable vouching for this laptop if you are looking for a lovely machine for both work & play.

I bought this laptop for my girlfriend back in August 2011 because she really needed one. While I'm not a computer expert, I know fairly well what to look for when buying a laptop. I liked the fact that it had an i5 1.3ghz processor, a decent amount of ram (3gb) and an okay graphics card in case she wanted to play The Sims or something. By today's standards, a year later, you can probably get a better deal as technology increases and price decreases, but if there isn't anything out there that compares to this and the price, I definitely recommend this. I've had zero problems with the laptop since I've had it, the only downside is that it's made by Samsung, a newcomer in the PC sales space, so there's no track record like, for instance, Dell, who has had many many years of reliable service and a proven track record of making quality products. Samsung, on the other hand, is one of the most profitable electronic companies right now, so I'm sure they will have no problems with the PC universe.
