Good computer for the price,
This review is from: Samsung Series 3 NP365E5C-S02US 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)
I switched from a 2k Macbook Pro to this Samsung out of financial necessity when I dropped my Mac off my bed when I fell asleep and it hit hard and I essentially destroyed it. Times are tight so I came into it this Samsung gritting my teeth at how much worse it would be. I'm shocked, all the speed and flexibility of the programs are there, I like the way it runs quiet and I think it looks nice for what it is. You're not going to get compliments but it looks like a quality business style comp.
I do miss iPhoto (a mac app that has a much more organized layout and user friendly interface for your pictures) but hey with the savings of nearly $1500 I'm laughing myself to sleep at what an awesome machine this is. FYI, I use it to run photoshop, word, iTunes, excel, VLC, this free home movie making program and surfing the web and it does them all really well.
Also, I'm totally new to Windows so I haven't had any complaints with that, I never knew Windows 7. All im hoping now is that it stays like this.. I switched to mac because PCs have a tendency to crash with weird viruses or hardware problems with no support like you get from Apple... but as of now... It's the best little investment I've made in a while.
Oh, and one negative complaint is the terrible placement of the headphone jack. Its in an annoying spot on the very front right, obviously designers should have known your hand crosses there much more than at the back.. but hey thats only one small gripe.
