After using it for 2 days ... I can testify that for the price ($560) it was worth the money. It is fast and build quality is very good. The machine looks classy with its glossy exterior in platinum finish and the hand rest is also of the same color and material. I had Lenovo, Fujitsu, Compaq, Acer and Sony before and the Samsung is close to the Sony in terms of quality build. The performance of the i3 is also pretty adequate for my use. The Compaq and Acer are far from the build quality of this laptop.
There is hardly any bloatware installed except for some trial games, Samsung's own system mgt software, trial Mcafee. I have since removed most of it. My Sony came with tons of bloatware.
It is also pretty light to lug around. Screen is also sharp and clear and comes with it's calibration tool just like a TV. Keyboard has separate number keys which is pretty useful for numerical data entry. There is also an HDMI output port which is useful if you want to hook it up to a HDTV for watching DVDs. Very silent unlike some laptops where you can hear the cooling fan. The main reason why I chose to go intel vs amd was the overheating issues with some of the amd series of cpus. This one generates practically no discernible heat (I leave it on for almost 12 hours a day).
Well, will recommend Samsung laptops from now on.
-Ok, so it's been a few months since I bought this laptop and I still love it. It's super fast, pretty and light. I love it! It's a great quality laptop at a great price. I can't live without it. The screen is HD and looks amazing. Soooooooo fast even with all the crap I've filled it up with. Don't need to go in and delete stuff to make it fast again like with other cumputers. Battery life it great. Amazing product.
The speed is good, but i owned a Lenevo that was the same layout basically and a little quicker(it seems). Also the Lenevo build felt much sturdier. The keyboard takes some getting use to, after using a bigger laptop. I still prefer the Acer for this very reason. I did some video converting and this was about 10 to 15 mintues faster, so that's a big plus. Also the audio is very good. I'm really not complaining, but it's just not as exciting as i had hoped. Basically it looks cool, but feels very breakable. Time will tell i suppose, if i decide to keep it. :)
NOTE:Finger prints are easily seen on the black around the keys. And the mouse button. Minor issue.
