So far I am very impressed by this laptop. For the price, the included hardware, specifically the processor, RAM, and video card are quite impressive--these are the things that made my decision to purchase this laptop. I am not going to list either pro or con for the battery, this machine is a powerhouse, so of course it's going to suck a lot of power. If you want a business travel machine or ultra-portable this isn't for you. This laptop is intended for someone who needs desktop power that has the *option* of being mobile when necessary. This fits fine with my lifestyle. I should mention that I am coming to this laptop as an owner of 3 Apple laptops. I made the switch because the hardware on this *far* exceeds the Apple version of the same price point. Or even that of double this price point. My purchase of this item was at $849.99. This is $100-200 less than any other online retailer at the time I purchased, so a great deal with Amazon.

I'm going to review a few points not well-covered in the product description or other reviews:

Pros:
-There is a feature to turn off the LED backlight (function+F5). This reminds me a bit of the Pixel Qi display panels, but more rudimentary since it isn't an eInk technology, just simple LCD panel. However, if outdoors in bright sunlight, the screen is very easy to see and battery savings are significant. Otherwise, you will want to keep the backlight on, unless you put a bright lamp directly behind you.
-Already mentioned, but the feel of the keyboard is the best I've found in a laptop. Amazing. Very slightly rubberized keys with a soft but not completely weightless action. This is excellent for a fast typist, but isn't so ultra-sensitive that it causes accidental letter repeats.
-The touchpad is great.

I'll just list out the pros and cons, to make this review short and to the point.

Pros:
* Quad-core i7 Intel processor (8 total threads)
* 4GB of RAM (Upgradable to 8GB RAM, using DDR3 PC3-8500 204-pin SODIMM)
* Two USB 3.0 ports
* HDMI port
* Bluetooth 3.0 (I was able to do BT file-transfer from my cell)
* NVIDIA GeForce 330M graphics with 1GB of memory
* Samsung's True2Sound (Impressive, but sound is not that loud)
* 802.11n, for faster wireless network
* Jumbo frames support on LAN
* No heat issue
* UPDATE: I haven't even paid attention to the Apps.
* I love that Samsung included some recovery apps, for drivers &/or OS (Samsung Recovery Solution 5)
* I also admired that very little bloatware is installed, so far I only uninstalled Norton

Cons:
* No Blu-ray reader
* No eSATA port
* Resolution is not 1080p, it is 720p (1366 x 768)
* 5400RPM SATA Hard drive
* Was told by Samsung that you cannot install SSD HD. I don't think this is accurate(?)
* Samsung's Web site and support is lacking
* Battery life
* No keyboard backlight
* Not a big deal: Windows 7 Home Premium

I'm gonna install my own version of W7 Enterprise, also using Samsung Recovery Solution to restore drivers/apps. I'll update this post, once I get that completed.

Windows listed this laptop as 5.9 (Windows Experience Index).
Processor: 7.0
Memory: 5.9
Graphics: 6.4
Gaming: 6.4
Hard Drive: 5.9

Based on the above index, the upgrade path is RAM and HD. I will upgrade RAM later on and replace HD with SSD. I opened the back of the laptop and I estimate the dimension of the HD to be: WxDxH - 69.85 x 100.00 x 7.40 mm.

Will try to hit a few points that aren't covered much in other reviews.

UPDATE: For those of you who hate touchpads as much as I do, you can go into the control panel and either change the sensitivity OR (as I did) set it to turn off if there is a mouse attached. NO more problem with the touchpad (I have had problems with every touchpad I have every used). No mouse attached, the touchpad turns back on.

Purchased this on Dec. 19, 2010. For a few hours only, the price was $800 - Fantastic price for a i7 15" screen laptop! Always had Toshiba Tecra's before this. Like any new computer, every brand has their own little quirks to get used to. My box stated 'Black' and NOT 'Charcoal Fusion". I have had no problem with fingerprints.

I went to Best Buy before purchasing just to see the laptop and try the keyboard. They have Samsung machines in stock.

I love the way the keyboard feels, but still having trouble adapting to the location and size of the delete key. No big deal. The machine is extremely quiet and cool. I had to purchase an external cooler for my Toshiba.

Extremely easy setup. At first I was a bit disappointed in no dial for volume control - but then I found the three buttons (top right next to power button) for mute, up and down volume. The one thing I don't like is that the door to the card reader (front on laptop) comes completely off. I have read that other laptops are the same way.

Love the FOUR USB ports - two 3.0 on the right and two 2.0 on the left. Even the Samsung web site only mentions the 3.0 ones.

Comes with bluetooth. No Blueray. Blueray drives for laptops seem to add several hundred dollars to the price.
