I needed a laptop for: presentation to clients, web & email, excel, watching movies when out of town.
This laptop is more than enough for all of that. If you're a gamer, there's probably not enough speed. If you're a graphic designer, the LCD may get on your nerves.

In general I prefer desktops because I like the modular components, cheaper price, more power, full-size keyboard & mouse.

The biggest issues for me with laptops are the keyboard & track pads. I use the number pad a lot, and this one has it. The keyboard on this computer also feels very natural and is pretty quiet when typing. I usually HATE track pads. On past laptops that I've owned, I never went anywhere without an additional mouse so that I wouldn't have to use horrid track pad and get frustrated at how long everything took. Samsung, being the same manufacturer as Apple products, uses the same large, well-designed track pad with multi-touch apple functionality (2-finger scroll, zoom-in or out by moving 2 fingers closer or farther apart...). I just played with this for a few hours with no mouse, and I'm pretty sure that I won't need to carry a mouse around with this computer.

It also runs very quietly (so much so that it almost seems like a solid state drive), quickly, and feels pretty light weight. Runs cool too, maybe that's normal for laptops now, but my older work laptop gets to hot to actually set it on your lap. It turns out that it's also currently consumer reports highest rated laptop under $700.

The only downside is the screen. While the screen quality is comparable with most other laptops under $1000, it's lower quality than what I'm accustomed to since I'm used to desktop monitors. That's a very small concession though.

This laptop failed after less than a year. I have had laptops from various brands including HP, Compaq, and Sony. All lasted 3-4 years besides replacing batteries once or twice a year. I will never buy another Samsung laptop. Samsung customer service is useless and now the computer is a useless brick sitting in the back of my closet.

Quality of laptop is higher than Dell and HP. The screen resolution is high and has good contrast. The problems others have stated here seem to be a software issue. Overall I haven't had any problems yet.

Beautiful laptop at a great price. So far, it seems to work very well too. Battery doesn't last quite as long as I thought but it's not bad either.

This is a great practical laptop. The keyboard needs a little geting used to. The smart touchpad didn't work when it arrived but just delete the original touchpad driver, then download the smart touchpad driver from the samsung website and install. The shipping and packaging was great.

Sansung continues to be a company that gives you more for your money. I am very pleased
with my trial at the store and will keep you updated after we take her on vacation, but the keyboard is quiet, the screen is very easy on the eyes, connectivity should be just fine. I can sing to the cd's, watch dvd's, upload my photos and keep in contact with my family and friends and write a journal and make movies of my photos....that is all I want and it will do that and so much more....later.

I've had this laptop about a year. It's a nice size for me ... not too large or too small, very thin, easy to pack and travel. I have a stream-lined neoprene laptop bag that will hold the laptop, a wireless mouse, mouse pad and a small power strip and still fit in my backpack (leaving room for other items) so that I can travel with both hands free. I especially like the numerical pad as I enter a lot of numbers in spreadsheets. This laptop is as fast and stable as much more expensive laptops our family has purchased. I've had no problems with it. Given the price (I bought it on sale), I think it has been a great buy.

This computer seems of sound construction and runs very smoothly. The keyboard is unique and easy to transition to with spaced out keys. The only construction problem I encountered is the touchpad glue has worn off the corner. It is still very useable and was a easy fix with glue. I am not a "gamer" but what I have used the computer for I am very satisfied.
