On the windows experience index the specs are:
Processor : 7.1
Memory : 5.9 ( I upgraded it to 8 gb ram now it's 7.5)
Graphics: 4.8
Gaming Graphics: 6.5
Primary hard disk: 5.9

I had this laptop for about a week now, and I gotta say I love it. It's very fast. I usually don't game that much, the only game that I play is "league of legends" and this laptop can handle it very well. I play on all high settings and still get 60fps. The keyboard feels very nice, very comfortable to type on.
The speakers are amazing! It's very loud when you put it on max. Speakers are also very clear.
I'm a new user to windows 8, and honestly windows 8 isn't really that bad. It only takes a couple of days to get used to. I tried testing out how long the battery would last. The battery lasted for about 4 hours when I had the brightness at max settings while streaming videos. The computer fan's quiet, it doesn't get that loud. Overall, I love this product.

I opened this computer's package on March 5th, 2013, and it's been around 4 days since then, so I have been able to review this computer from its beginning to the end of its first four days. Please keep in mind that college student is reviewing this and likes to play games (not first person shooters, though) when he has free time. Any updates have the form YYYY/MM/DD.

*~The basic specs, which I think are important, are:

1. Intel i5 3210 2.50Ghz processor (a fantastic 3rd gen i5 processor at this time)

2. 4 GB RAM (I'm pretty sure that it's a DDR3, assuming that it's one stick)

3. 64bit with Win 8 (I don't mind Windows 8, but I'll list out its points later; the points I made are irrelevant to the laptop as a whole, since it's just the operating system and not about the laptop itself)
4. Integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card (Intel has come far in its integrated processors)

5. Dedicated Nvidia GeForce 630M graphics card (this is what stands out for being $500; such a great deal. It's not that much better than the Intel HD 4000 graphics (I looked up video card reviews), but it's nice to have a graphics card with a processor dedicated to it.

6. Four USB ports (two of which are 3.0 USB)

7. A headphone/microphone jack (the only con to this computer in my opinion; I rather have separate jacks but can't wish for everything).

8. 5400 RPM hard drive (the "bottleneck" as one reviewer describes; will explain this later).

9. Fan on the leftside (it does a little hot when you game, but it's not alarming; personally, I like this better than having it on bottom, but lefties should be wary if they can tolerate this type of thing).

***Update: Amazon and samsung have both changed the spec pages on this laptop to correct the error. After using the laptop, I found it to be very capable laptop. I play starcraft II on high setting just fine. The speakers are very load and very clear. The laptop does get hot during gaming, so keep it on a desk or table. The only problem I had, besides the original specs, was the slowness of loading programs and starting up. This was solved by installing an ssd. The samsung model I purchased had a cable the plugs into a usb port. There is software included to image the drive, but this laptop already has it on it. It could not be easier and the hard drive is easy to access on the bottom of the laptop. It was a night and day difference, I highly recommend the upgrade.

First off, there is no back-lit keyboard. There are settings for it, but it is not there. The plug is on the motherboard, but nothing is plugged into it. Also there is no sub woofer as mentioned in the specs. Samsung has the same errors on their site, so I don't know who to blame. Anyone who purchased this laptop, I feel bad, because you were lied too. I will be sending this back as soon as possible. Its a shame, because it seems like it would be such a nice laptop.

Just a few first impressions after spending a couple hours setting up this laptop.

1. The laptop that arrived was white, not gray as shown in the pictures. Not a big deal but some people might be put off by it.

2. **Uninstall 'Intellimemory'** - While I was removing all the typical bloatware I noticed that RAM utilization was around 95%. Almost the entire 4GB was being used but barely 1GB of programs were using memory. Odd. Uninstalling 'Intellimemory' freed up all of the RAM and the computer runs much, much faster. I can't stress how important this is. This laptop is almost unusable with 'Intellimemory' installed....why would they do this??

3. The processor (Ivy Bridge i5) and RAM (DDR3 1600mhz) is above average for a $500 laptop but everything else is what you would expect at this price level. The display has nice colors but suffers from the 768p resolution and poor viewing angles that most laptops share today.

4. It is a very nice looking laptop. Not too heavy, not too thick, attractive looking.

5. Installing an SSD should be a priority. The only real bottleneck in the whole system is the 5400RPM hard drive. With an SSD installed, you end up with a very nice laptop for an investment around $620 total.
