After about a week of ownership i can honestly say ths lapto has been nothing but good to me. The keyboard took some getting used to but now im back t full speed. The gpu, cpu, and ram all make this a gaming machine that can run any game (even BF3 purportedly) on reasonably high settings. I did have a bit of lag playing Magicka, but that game seems to give a lot of computers issues. It loads up really fast and unlike the guy who reviewed it before me, i just uninstalled the bloatware, took maybe 5 minutes with CCleaner, and have thus had no driver issues. It runs games, loads everything quickly, and does so SILENTLY. When the fan does become audible during gaming, it is only a nice, distant whoosh of air, kind of like theres a fan on in the corner of the room.
The bottom does get a little warm, but never uncomfortable so. You also dont have to really worry about blocking the fans because they are cleverly placed in the hinge of the laptop. Solid build Quality and unlike the 17inchers, this model has 0 wifi issues. I can download at around 2mb/s on steam as opposed to 5mb/s on my wired pc.

Samsung builds good things that dont frustrate you, i reccomend this laptop. Also amazon is great

Though i will not reduce my star rating on this product, i want to point out a solution to a problem that i found with the laptop. If you buy this laptop and it appears to not be charging correctly, simply plug in the ac adapter into the computer and rotate a little bit away from you (the round bit that actually inserts into the left hand side). It doesn't happen that often and that's probably the simplest fix to a piece of technology that i have ever found. This engineering student still reccomends this laptop to anyone looking for a good computer.

This Samsung Series 7 is a great laptop! I purchased this machine to replace a Dell i7 XPS that has had issues since day 1. I use the machine primarily for programing enterprise software such as websites, CMS, services. This work requires me to have many memory and processor hungry apps open at once and this machine handles them just fine. I like the brushed metal look. The finish doesn't really show fingerprints which is nice. The speakers sound good although I haven't used the machine as a jukebox. One of the items I find good performance with is the battery. It lasts between 4-6 hours depending on what you are doing and how bright the screen is. This is great considering the weight of the machine is still pretty light.

The first machine Amazon sent had a DOA hard drive. This definitely gave me pause. Amazon promptly replaced the machine within a few days though and the second machine is just fine. Thank you Amazon!

There are a few things that I find detract from the experience. The lid does not close very tight so it has a few millimeters of play. It won't flop open on you or anything but it will open up a little if you set in in a bag on its rear. The touchpad is huge which is not necessarily a bad thing. I'm still getting used to it so it may just be a preference thing but it bothers me a little that my hand rests on the corners a bit sometimes. Not a big deal. My biggest concern would be the sturdiness of the lid. The lid will flex a bit if you grab it by the corner to close or open it. It is very thin which is good but it also appears to be a little flimsy. So much so that I am more careful than normal with it. I haven't had any problems though.

I would say the hard drive is weakest component of the system.

This is a solid product with good gaming potential. It does come with a lot of shovelware, but what system doesn't? It also doesn't have that abominable Windows 8 on it. I've been using it for 3 weeks, at home, and work, and it has been 100% reliable and dependable. It is light, and has good battery life. The resolution on the screen is good, but it's not a retina display or an IPS panel, however I find it quite bright and usable. I purchased this at $1099, and it has since gone up in price due to Amazon's dynamic pricing, but I'd pay a little more for it. I'm very happy with this machine.

This laptop is great! really fast, the images looks spectacular, it is very quiet, very thin, besides has a luxury desing, it's perfect for heavy duty work (I'm programmer). The only bad thing is the weight when you have to transport it. It was an excellent purchase, I'm very pleased. I highly recomended it

In fact, if I could give this laptop a 4 1/2 stars I would. Everything about it screams premium. I'll start with the construction. Sturdy. Sleek. Premium. There's no fancy, illuminated logo, but there is a nice, brushed aluminum top and palm rest combined with a plastic bottom. Now while I would've loved for an all-aluminum body, plastic is understandable as it doesn't radiate as much heat. So it makes sense. When opened, the laptop has a smooth, even looked. A very small bezel adds to the sleek, premium look. The keyboard provides fairly sizable clicks, and the backlighting is even throughout. Overall, it's like I said earlier: Sturdy. Sleek. Premium.

Next up is performance. This thing can scream. Booting up is fairly quick for a machine this size, usually under 25 seconds, when talking about a cold boot (i.e. completely powered off). Sleep mode reboots even quicker, and even when coming out of hibernation the laptop is fairly quick. Casual uses like web browsing, watching videos, pulling iTunes, etc., initiate quickly, and everything flows nicely. I use this for casual gaming, and overall performance is pretty great for a laptop that's not built with gaming in mind. Borderlands 2, Guild Wars 2, etc., play in high settings fairly well when hooked up to an external monitor that's outputting at 1080p. I'm sure in its native resolution, which is lower, the game would run even better. But again, I only play these games when they're hooked up to my 23-inch 1080p monitor. Another thing to note is despite all of this great performance, the laptop runs QUIETLY. I'm actually impressed at how little fan noise emanates when playing graphic-intense games or having multiple windows and such open. It's completely indicative of the quality of the components inside.
