I am not sure why there aren't too many reviews for this model. I bought this laptop after a few weeks of research and its an excellent buy. the pictures on this websites are incorrect as pointed out by other reviewers. there is no number pad, but thats a non-issue for me. i can always use the row of number keys on the top. Having said that, this laptop is the only one in this price range that comes with 6GB of RAM,HDMI and a 14 inch lightweight body. the screen is awesome to watch netflix. i do heavyweight tasks like running a couple of vmware servers using linux and solaris on this laptop, and it works fast. no lagging whatsoever. instant on feature ensure the laptop is ready to work within 3 seconds as advertised. harddisk could be faster, but no issues with 640gig HD there. the power input seems to be made of plastic, which worries me a bit, as i havent seen plastic power inputs on my other laptops. the laptop does not creek at the dvd drives like my other HP laptops, and the build is solid. the screen is glossy , would have preferred matte though. there is a small card reader in the front, usb slots two on right, 1 on left. one hdmi,ethernet, vga on left.overall simple but elegant design, looks nice and very light.
i managed to remove the bloatware that comes with it, and it took me 20 minutes.once you remove the bloatware its all set to go.

recommend buying this laptop.

Edit: i contacted amazon and reported that the image on this listing is incorrect. Amazon replied back that there is no issue with the image (of the keyboard with numberpad) and that they think no change is needed. I usually have a high regard of amazon, but I am baffled with them refusing there is a issue with the image. Hope more people report this to get them to update the pictures of laptop on this page.

I am returning my purchase because the laptop is black color and not the silver metallic color displayed on the web page. The Number key pad is also different from the webpage photos (see other customers' disappointments in their reviews). Amazon was helpful in arranging the refund due to product not matching description.

The Samsung NP300V4A-A03US has great features for its price and I like the practical yet comapct 14-inch display, which normally cost more than the standard 15.6 inch. However, the screen color tone has a tint of pin and purple especially on white, light blue and light gray background. Adjusting the color in Intel settings and using color calibration did not remove the pink-purplish problem.

It was quite difficult to get on a Chat with the Samsung Tech Support and I finally got through after waiting for 40 minutes. Samsung support agents are also not friendly. Compared with Sony, I was able to chat or speak to a representative almost immediately each time I contacted them with questions, and Sony's service is friendly and fast.

I went to Best Buy to check out the screens of other Samsung notebooks and noticed a display laptop, also a Samsung 14-inch has the same annoying pink-purple color tone. All the other brands: Sony, Toshiba, Dell, Asus, etc. in the store all have normal screen colors, and not pink like the Samsung.

By the numbers (i5, 6GB, 640GB), this computer seems to be dazzling fast.. Unfortunately it's not. I think it's Norton Antivirus that makes it slow. I am waiting for it to expire and uninstall it so I can install a new one for free. The speakers don't have good quality sound, I'm sure about this. Remember this is a 14" laptop and don't have numeric pad as the one in the picture. Before this machine I had an HP with AMD Processor and just 4GB RAM ($400 in Best Buy ) wich I think was faster. Enough said.
Conclusion : by the specifications, this laptop is best in class and price. But in the real world, it's not as fast as expected. There should be a reason for this!
I think Amazon.com or Samsung should do something about it and contact customers with a solution.

Excellent laptop! It has plenty of CPU horsepower, better than average battery life (with power management features turned on) and all the necessary ports for a road-warrior - HDMI AND VGA for any kind of projector plus sufficient USB ports to handle anything. Interestingly, when I tethered my Android phone it immediately set up an internet connection - no muss, no fuss, it just worked...

Overall - definitely 5 stars from me...

this is my first product review from Amazon.

I've been buying stuff since 2009 and I work in the IT area since 2007.

the laptop is perfect for the whole family, from surfing the internet to run graphical applications (despite not having a graphics card). Not as heavy as they have said in other reviews, and the battery life is high (7 hours on average). Great sound and the screen looks great.

Some cons that might make known are:

the quality or resolution of the webcam is not the best. It could be coming from Samsung.

The touchpad is very sensitive.

Too many applications from Samsung (I uninstalled most of them).

I hope these comments can serve to make an informed purchase decision.
