WORKS GOOD

This laptop is good for what I needed, runs good, fast enough for everyday use. I still prefer Windows 7, but Hey software was already installed. I would recommend this to someone else.

Good Value - Okay CPU, Great Integrated GPU

[...] It's a good laptop for the price. It can run LoL, SC2, Torchlight II, and even Guild Wars 2 (although it runs at under 30 fps). All the games cannot be run on high graphics, and the screen resolution is maxed at 1366 x 768. No SSD, but that doesn't matter too much to me. The anti-glare screen is awesome! I cannot stress enough how effective it is for gaming outside in the backyard. The A10-4600m is all right, but no where near super powerful. I have an i5-2500K in my desktop that is really impressive. The integrated HD 7660G is excellent though. [...]

Samy does Good.

First of all for everyone that's worried about windows 8 its not that bad, if you don't wont to use it just work off the desktop, its exactly like windows 7. the screen is the best, it is matt so there is no glare at all. I love this laptop.

A very good all-around laptop for a good price!

This laptop is a very interesting offer and an overall good buy. First of all, as it's made by Samsung, you will have all Samsung software available, including SW Update, which updates the computer to its latest drivers. There is also SoundAlive, which improves the speakers sound and acts like an equalizer. The sound is not the greatest, but it is better than most computers in this price range. Anyway, one rarely buys a laptop to get the best sound experience around. Processor is very good, AMD A10 4600M performs well and unless you do very demanding multitasking, it is one of the best options around, as it can handle normal multitasking very well as well as light to medium gaming (up to 512 MB graphics card). However, it is not really a true gaming laptop, even though the specs say so, as its design is not really made for that kind of activity. Therefore, if you want to do some gaming, buy yourself a good cooling pad, as the left side of the computer tends to heat when playing games. With a cooling pad, it's like having a new computer, and you can even play some of the most demanding games around without discomfort and with more frames per second. Design is great, it is plastic, of course, but one of the best and most solid plastic cases around. There is some grip on the palm rests as usual for Samsung computers, and it is comfortable. Island-style keyboard is perfect. Screen is very beautiful. Even though it is not the brightest of them all due to anti-flare design, it has good colors and contrast. That said, if you want a computer that is able to do everything you want from a good laptop, just GO with it, you won't regret it!

not bad

everything is great, the laptop is light , nice screen and sound, except for the wifi, and windows 8. I bought this laptop for my online gaming needs, like quake live, but unfortunately the connection was interrupted like every 5 min. I was disappointing, so I thought that it would be a good idea to get the router closer and it works better now, but im still cheking. I have another Toshiba laptop and never had a connection problem,. Now I dont know if win8 is affecting the game performance, I dont know if win8 is consuming some more of the system memory than win7 , or is my connection, but sometimes the game get a little bit slower...

Overall decent laptop for the price

The screen is okay, hard to view from side angles. It's not glossy which definitely helps with glare. Speed is great, loads programs and apps quickly. Overall good value for a Samsung laptop.

Not good

I bought two, had to return one because of the brightness control wasn't working. Display color is not great either. Don't like the control pad.

Super duper good

Love this computer, have only had it for a few days. It is the quietest machine I have ever had....doesn't even purr. Like the chicklet style keyboard like on the Sony Vaio, mac, etc. Breaking in a new computer is always a drag, and adding Windows 8 in there makes it even moreso, but the former went fairly efficiently and the latter is a learning curve (and yes you can still have a home page that is your desktop), but there seems a lot to offer in that new format. Have bought a few HP's lately

good laptop, a few downfalls

I have returned mine for a few reasons: 1. the processor slows down, and due to the Samsung software does not speed back up. there are a couple ways of fixing this, but they are temporary solutions. 2. the sata revision is 3gbps. so if you wanna replace it with an ssd, you won't get the full benefit. 3. the build is plastic so it feels cheap. 4. the AMD roadmap for 2013 shows 2 new sets of APU's for laptops in 2013. from what I read, the first of the 2 will be in the spring, and the clock speed will be 4.1 ghz compared to this one 2.3. I would wait for at least this revision if not the one towards the end of 2013.

Love this laptop

I needed a lightweight laptop for portability as I will use it for work and going on meetings. I love it. I could not be happier with it. I bought an hp yesterday and was displeased with that one. This is a powerhouse and I highly recommend it. It is fast. It is sleek. This processor is amazing. I have no complaints. For the pricetag, I believe it is a great value. It is a big heavier than what I wanted, but other than that- I have no regrets. I have no problem recommending it to others who want a nice laptop that is a great value.

Excellent laptop

Very nice laptop runs games like borderland 1 and Garry's mod like a charm haven't tried out other games but everything else about this laptop is great. But the top of the laptop is very finger absorbent and there is no caps lock indicators. But overall great for the price. Cheers

Keyboard LEDs

For those who miss the keyboard led for CAPS, NUM, SCROLL, just search on google for Keyboard LEDs software and you will have the perfect solution to get info when the CAPS is on or off.

I bought this laptop and the CD drive was broken. I am honestly not surprised because the case of this laptop is made with the cheapest plastics. Internally this computer is great, but on the exterior there are no LED lights to indicate if caps is on or the number pad. The touch pad is not at all textured and is sometimes unresponsive. My computer has crashed over four times now, windows 8 is not living up to what I expected. Overall not worth it, buy a laptop that you know wont break if you accidentally were to bump it.

Great Notebook, especially at the sale price.

This laptop has the best AMD vision APU built inside of it, which apparently makes it blazing fast and faster than the other vision APU. I especially love the keyboard and the screen. You cannot see your reflection even when you sit directly facing a light source! This is a real bummer if you have a glossy screen. The Key board is extremely good too. The feel and overall responsiveness is better than expected. On the cons side, the laptop has no LEDs to indicate the key locks, which can sometimes be confusing, however with time it is not much big of a deal. The touchpad, next is the huge minus as well. Instead of this, I would prefer a more textured touchpad, mainly because it is very unresponsive and painful to use. My index finger got strained only in the first couple of days of usage. The battery life, considering the original price of the laptop would be expected to be over four and around 5 hours on normal usage, however it dies in less than 3 on everyday use. The webcam is another minus as the images are very pixelated and unclear. Despite the setting saying (720p) hd, it is not even close. Very disappinting! Overall, I would recommend this laptop to any one, however make sure to check out the features in a display unit at the store before you buy it. Amazing steal though!!

Good enough for gaming and affordable

What I love about this laptop is the A10 APU. It's fast and snappy and the built in GPU is great for my gaming needs. At this price, I can't expect a dedicated video card, but it didn't disappoint with the integrated GPU. Also, the screen the great, not too glossy.
