I bought this laptop a month ago for light to moderate use with basic web surfing and word processing, and love it!
Thin, but solid design with nice display
Windows 7 experience index (scale of 1 to 7.9) of 6 or above (Processor: 6.4), other than Graphics (4.6)
Quiet, rarely hear any fan sound. It doesn't get heated up like my other Dell, HP or Toshiba laptops.
Battery life is very good, averaging 6 hours. Nice Keyboard (wish it had backlit keys, but only a wish for this price range:))


No major issues so far; was trying to install Logitech Harmony universal remote sw, had issues, but suspect it's Logitech sw issue.

Overall, solid laptop for under $500 (Paid $479 with $50 amazon gift card).

Just received this laptop...I would say one of the best laptops (portable) that I have used. I love the fact that this has a DVD drive and yet it weighs just 5 lbs. I like how Samsung has managed the screen area. The keys are big enough, screen is just bright enough and sound quality is acceptable.

Got this as a second computer for stuff I cannot run on my Macbook Air. I like the enigmatic black design, the key are soft and comfortable, the touch pad and buttons works very well and I like the screen size, not to big, not too small. So far the computer performs just great. The computer came with almost no junkware software and all I needed was to uninstall the Windows Office trial. If needed I will upgrade its memory to 8GB but so far I did not see a need. Setting the wifi connection and printer (Brother network laser printer) was a breeze and Windows 7 looks nicer than XP which I had on my old computer.

One problem I had was that the Fn+Function keys that control the brightness, volume etc did not work. I contact Samsung support and they send me a zip file with Easy Display Manager app to install and this fixed the problem. Kind of strange that it did not come with the original software but since other people did not complain about it I presume it is a one off (my computer was refurbished with 11 months old production date so it may be an early product).

I would probably drop a star due to the function key issue but since Samsung support was just great, I am going to give it full 5 stars. I contacted Samsung support on the online chat, available 24x7. They were very professional and patient and did not even ask for serial number, email address, etc, just dived in directly and solved the problem.

Overall its is a very good product with very good value. Not the most portable one (compare with MacBook air and various Windows Ultrabooks) but so far it works great for me.
