Indeed, I bought a Windows 7 PC about two weeks before Windows 8 came out. I was replacing a broken laptop and had lost enough productivity without adding the learning curve to the issue!

The good:

1. 4 USB ports. I don't know what happened to the original idea of being able to multi-chain USB devices together, but it never really happened. I use my laptop both mobile and as a desktop replacement, and at the desk there's an external HD, a printer, a keyboard, and a mouse. That's without needing to sync an iPod, phone, Livescribe pen or anything else--the 4 ports come in handy. The external HD is USB 3.0, and the speed is there.

2. Battery life. In use, on wi-fi, multiple programs open, I have run this laptop 6 hours without exhausting the battery. It still reported about 30%, but I was back at a plug, so I plugged it in. This compares to the prior laptop that gave me 2 hours.

3. Weight: not "ultra-light" but the first portable computer I used was the weight of a sewing machine. Size and shape of it too, with a 5 inch orange monochrome monitor built in. This goes in my Targus backpack nicely. It doesn't disappear, but then again, I don't forget it's in my bag and just fling it about.

4. Speed: practically speaking, I don't wait for the computer to boot up anymore. I push the button, I'm ready to go quickly. Even my resource hog programs run well. No longer do they think so long that Windows counts them as "Not responding."

5. Sound quality/video quality: if you're hyper-picky, you may not think it's good. But for everyday computing, it's just fine.


1. The individual keys for the keyboard.

This machine is not only beautiful and super fast but what is not on the description is that this machine is a Microsoft Signature line computer. It comes by default very clean, with nearly zero preloaded bloatware and the preloaded anti-virus is the Microsoft Security Essentials which is my opinion the best out there. Also all of the Samsung preloaded drivers and applications are excellent! I am very impressed with the quality, I will definitely recommend Samsung computers after this.

This is actually my second Samsung notebook I have purchased in the last 6 months (I also own a series 7 NP700z5b-s01ub), and I love them both.

This one has honestly come to be my favorite of the two because it is outperforming the other (similar specs but this one is clearly more powerful). I also love the design and build on the notebook, as it is very compact and comfortable and at a very reasonable weight for traveling. It has a great combination of power/size/price ratio.

Highly Recommended!

I mainly use this computer for video editing / trimming / conversion from my Gopro videos using there companies software. I hated my little atom netbook and the time it took to convert a 4 minute clip was a crazy waste of time sometimes 60min, also surfing the web and running another program would essentially crash my netbook even though it would run everything in the background and be fine after that hour of processing. It was time to upgrade from portability to powerhouse ultrabook for mainly videos but also some sketchup and online web conferencing.

I love this laptop mainly for the battery, I get roughly 5+ hours of the battery depending how I use it but the amazing part is that on 5% charge left on the battery I am able to plug it in while still using it and it will fully charge in about 60-70min. I have also completely drained the battery and started charging the battery while the unit was not in use and it takes approximately the same amount of time to fully charge

CPU / Speed
Those 4min clips of video now take only about 60 seconds to process, so that i7 processor was worth it. Im sure the 8GB of RAM also help out. I stopped doing short 4min clips at a time of recording on my gopro and now just hit record and let it go usually ending up with now a huge file I have to convert (2.5GB++ at a time) but that same file is a breeze for this Ultrabook, that huge file maybe 20-30minutes only takes about 5 minutes to process.

I downsized from a 17 inch Dell that I'd had about 5 years. This laptop has the number pad on the keyboard that I really wanted and was fairly easy to type on when I tested it out in the store. I am having some issues with typing that I am trying to sort out but that's a user issue, not the computer.
So far I've liked this computer and haven't run into any issues with it. I love Samsung products (my phone and tablet are both Samsung). The metal look to this computer was one of the things that sold me on it. Price was next. Very affordable for what you are getting.
