The negatives are the mouse pad and the lack of accessories. After 3 weeks of adjustment, I am still having a lot of trouble using the mouse pad. But the biggest complaint is the lack of accessories that are compatible with this laptop. As of today, there is no airplane power adapter that is compatible with this laptop. I tried to buy an extra power adapter from Samsung and its distributors so I have a spare when I use the laptop at home, but there is none in stock with a minimum of 9-week lead time. It uses micro HDMI output, so I am still trying to figure out a way to show my Powerpoint presentation via a projector with a VGA input. It requires a special dongle for CAT5 Ethernet connection. If you lose it, good luck in getting a replacement because it can't be found anywhere on the Internet.
Hope there will be more accessories available soon, and then I will add one extra star to the review.
**UPDATE: The accessories are now readily available to be purchased online. Thanks for the postings by other reviewers. I have updated the rating from 4 to 5 starts.**
And I bought the fully loaded machine, i7 quad-core with 8GB RAM....it never even occurred to me that the Wi-Fi would be the limiter!
In a test at ~25ft from a hotspot (which is the closest point that I could actually still have a signal on the Samsung 9), and using Speedtest.net website/apps....

That is a pathetic design deficiency for Samsung. How did that make it through their labs??? Let's be honest, if you are buying a really sleek, portable laptop, you are probably using it as a mobile device connecting to a hotspot (at work, at home, or on the go), this Wi-Fi issue makes it nearly unusable.
Sorry Samsung, I absolutely LOVE your products, but you really dropped the ball on this one!

But it has an Achille's heel:
Power connector is shoddy. I've sent my laptop in once, waiting a week to get it back, which is pretty fast, I'm told. The power cord no longer provided power, so purchased 2 more at a hefty price from Samsung. (Spent over $200) Didn't fix the problem. Turns out the input jack was the problem. When I got it back, now the cords connector doesn't go in all the way, and they fall out all the time. So, I'm having to be very careful how I use my laptop so that the cord doesn't fall out. It's a nuisance.
This is a stunning laptop. Pricey, but the fast, sleek, wonderful.
Since I bought this, the new MacBook Air shipped. It now has a back lit keyboard and offers a larger SSD drive as an option than the Series 9. It has a fast processor. It can run Windows as well as Mac OS.
Honestly, I still like the Samsung's look and not sure the MacAir has a screen that is as bright. It's nice to be able to use the Samsung outside and see the screen, easily.
But, the MacAir has Apple's magnetic connector for power, and it looks like that is a very useful technology. It's ironic that with all the high tech on the Series 9, the power connector is a problem. Yes, I may have had bad luck, but when I look at it, it's clearly not optimally designed.
I'd be more annoyed, but Samsung's support has been amazing.Read more ›
