" I bought this laptop as I was looking for a moderate gaming system. Its specs on performance are fantastic. Its speed has improved after removing the bloatware. Some features are annoying like the automatic sensor for the backlit keyboard. You can turn it off in settings but it took some time to figure it out. Great performance and it can play games like Just Cause 2. The model is very sturdy and I even dropped it hard and it didn't have any new dents or scratches. "
Pros: Built-in speakers, sufficient ports, graphics, anti-glare
Cons: heats up on bottom

Lovely Looking, Good (not great) Spec's, Awful Software. Buy if you have good Windows knowledge

" I brought this after reading a load of good reviews. The reviewers obviously hadn't spent anytime with this machine. On paper it sounds brilliant, however in practice it's the software that let's it down. Now I'm not having a Windows 8 bash, it's actually rather good. I'm having a Samsung terrible setup bash. The main problem seems to be with the disk cache software. This causes browser(s) (I tried explorer, Chrome, and Firefox over a number of weeks) not to work correctly. Regularly loading pages incorrectly. This was with a pretty much out of the box config from Samsung. I removed the disk cache software after reading some forums, and problem pretty much went away. Still find the machine can be VERY slow the disk is the problem as far as I can tell, why Samsung would release a machine of this caliber without an SSD is beyond me. I'm going to upgrade to an SSD then hopefully the machine will start to fly. "
Pros: Bright display, Durable, touchscreen is good
Cons: slow disk, rubbish samsung software, no ssd
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
