I bought this as a cheap beat up laptop. Turns out it's among the best I've ever owned. A half year into it, after using it 6 - 10 hours most days, it has yet to give me even a single problem. Not one crash, not one malfunction. The only wear came on the keyboard, where the letter paint has come away a bit. Not bad though.

Some other reviewers have claimed that this computer is slow. I'm not going to doubt them, but that has not been my experience whatsoever. The computer is as fast as any other that I have used and I run multiple programs (like Photoshop, Word and Firefox with plenty of tabs open) all at once. A friend purchased a Sony Vaio at the same time and has had nothing but problems, including with speed.

I recommend this computer.

I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my husband. It is a slow computer! We have tried everything and it just does not have the speed of the other laptops in our family. And Windows 8 yuck! I don't want it on mine!

My son loves this computer. It's sharp, fast, and plays his games perfectly. The only flaw would be that the bottom is light so when it lifts the whole computer when you open it - must keep weight on the bottom while lifting screen so can't do it one-handed. My son keeps it in his room, plugged in, at all times, so I can't speak to the battery life. But, overall, it's a great computer at this price and we love it.

The computer itself looks nice and works OK. It is slow as hell though. The video card cannot even play YouTube videos in High Def without lagging. I would spend a little more and buy a better quality notebook.

I got this as a Christmas present in Dec. 2012 because I was working off of an older Dell Inspiron that was having issues, slowing down, etc. and I was also returning back to college. Windows 8 took some time to get used too since I was still working off of Windows XP. Unfortunately there were so many updates when we turned on the computer that it overloaded the computer and we had to hard restart the computer. Every time I would turn the computer on it seemed to get overloaded or could not process the updates and download a program I tried to install, for instance a dictionary app, the calculator app, an algebra app, pretty much anything that would assist me with school. Since working with Windows 8 for the first time and a Samsung product (always had a dell) I really thought it was just me and not used to the operating system. Well about 8 months later I was in the middle of typing a 12 page essay and I noticed the keys I were typing were not outputting the right letters. Then one day, the keyboard just stopped working. I pulled the paperwork and called Samsung, they were very friendly and insisted I back up everything on my hard drive because they were going to have to open the computer to replace the keyboard if that was their diagnosis. They did the work in a timely manner, the keyboard was replaced but I believe it was with a refurbished keyboard. There are times that it has a glitch but for the most part it is functioning. Also when we got the computer back, all of a sudden my DVD drive does not work, it's part of the risk you take when you send your laptop in for repairs and when it get's opened up. It actually does not recognize the drive. We use this computer for random things, nothing important, to create a fax letterhead, labels, search the web.Read more ›
