I'd say overall I'm very happy with the computer. Hardware wise, it's basically a Macbook Air but for Windows. That's a good thing, it has a great, big touchpad with excellent multi-touch, and the keyboard is really fantastic. It's a no frills laptop, it's not full of silly media pads and junk like that.
I was a little disappoined with the lack of aluminum, it's sold as an aluminum laptop but the ENTIRE bottom is plastic, the front face around the screen is plastic, and the keyboard area is all plastic. The outside of the lid is all aluminum and most of the top/keyboard area is aluminum, basically where your palms sit is all aluminum. It's not a deal breaker, but still worth mentioning.
There is a refreshing lack of bloatware as well, which was nice. As in, other than Norton, Samsung just has a few very low resource utilities (driver update, function keys) and that's it.
The SSD comes with 69GB free, yes, you read that right! I did find a simple way to get rid of the useless recovery partition (back it up) and recover another 20gb. There are also other obvious ways to increase space, you can purchase 32gb Micro SD cards for a mere $40, so if you want to carry some movies around with you, even just a couple cards would have quite a bit of entertainment. I personally have a 32GB MicroSD card that just stays in the laptop and a small external hard drive that I rarely use, but it's there. Overall the disk space hasn't been an issue.
The laptop is VERY light, you can pick it up with 2 fingers with almost no effort. Perfect!Read more ›
Quite impressive. It is gorgeous, it is light, it is sturdy.
It's an elegant piece of hardware. It's not "look at me". It just exudes elegance with its lines and color.
The weight is quite amazing. Obviously, not as light as a tablet (I own an ipad), but for a laptop, core i5, it's quite amazing they packed so much power into such a small form factor.
The material they used for this is impressive. I can hold the laptop with one hand on one of the sides, like it was a tablet, and the laptop does not bend at all.
I also have an Envy 17 from work, with core i7 (first gen) with 6gb RAM. So far, performance has been quite comparable. The fact that this baby has SSD helps a ton. It "feels" speedier than my Envy. You can check benchmark tests on other blogs/sites, but from a user perspective (I'm s software engineer, so I always have Visual Studio open with multiple other programs), you'll feel almost no difference compared to a machine with higher specs (I haven't tested video encoding, etc, but for most users, I expect that's a minor part of their use).
Because this is a "travel" laptop and it has work related stuff, I've encrypted the system drive with TrueCrypt. Did not notice any performance hit.
My envy 17 is HOT. I mean REALLY HOT. The desk it sits atop gets quite warm on the left side where the vent is. But I can place this computer on my lap and it barely feels warm.
I'm a mouse guy. Even with laptops, I'm always using a mouse. However, given the limited number of usb ports on this machine, I've decided to give the trackpad a try.Read more ›
Let me say this: there's a reason why the Samsung 9 Series was so popular at CES 2011.
I'm going to start with the looks of this laptop (shocking beginning for this brief review, wouldn't you say?). The first thing I said to my self after opening the box was, "WOW! This is truly a work of art." It definitely is a work of art, even the box was stunning. The metal look, the silver trim on the sides, and the thinness creates an absolutely stunning looking laptop. To top it off, I like how the Samsung logo isn't 'in your face.' I feel like so many companies now constantly try to put their logo all over the laptop - Samsung has it tucked to the side for pleasant viewing. The ports are also in the 'looks'/hardware category for me. The ports are tucked into secret compartments on both sides of the laptop. For those afraid those may become loose over time, it doesn't seem that way to me - they are very sturdy. The duraluminum body is magnificent - it is sturdy and will be able to withstand a lot of use. The battery life is also very nice - lasts a looong time, especially for this category of laptop.
As for the inside of the laptop, the fantastic look/hardware factors continue. The screen is beautiful, and its matte screen is just what I was looking for. The webcam performs just as you would expect. It's a webcam. The keys seem solid and feel like they will last quite some time.Read more ›

Too bad its about more than looks. I'll sum this up in a simple pro and con format
- Nice, bright beautiful screen. Read more
With the exception of Windows 8, the laptop will not disappoint you.
Con: greasy finger prints stick on cover, you will have to constantly wipe it.
I write this review with only one message. This computer survived a fall (while closed) from about three feet in the air onto a tile floor and survived unscathed.Published on October 21, 2012 by Ilana and Joseph
