Windows 8 on a laptop just does not make sense.
The laptop itself is slow and cumbersome and struggles with simple applications.
It does look nice and is fairly light.
I have the model with an Intel Core i7, 1TB HDD and 8GB RAM. It came with Windows 8, and the upgrade to 8.1 was easy enough.
The screen clarity is excellent; don't get me wrong, this is not a gaming laptop, and it has struggled with some pretty basic FPS games. I wanted to play Skyrim on it, and the graphics were nowhere near desirable. Don't get this if you intend to game. In fact, don't get a laptop if you intend to game ;)
The specifications, up front, look good. I don't run too much on this; Photoshop and Office 2013. However, after under a year of use I find the speed of the hard drive is absolutely appalling. I have over 50% space free; the laptop takes around 2 minutes to boot. I would exchange the 1TB of local space right now for a decent SSD in a heartbeat.
The keyboard is nice; I do a *lot* of typing, and the keys are responsive; the keyboard itself nicely spaced out.
Around 6 months in, the laptop stopped charging completely. I tried a new charger; that wasn't the problem. On returning to Samsung, they completely replaced the chassis so whilst the customer service was excellent, the two weeks of chasing my tail to get the laptop sorted was not. I work in IT for a living. Whilst I can appreciate that devices are sometimes inherently faulty, it wasn't impressive.
Overall, this is a decent laptop for the price, but don't be fooled. The disk is slow and the graphics are onboard, making the i7 and 8GB RAM a moot point. I'm going to throw in a dual SSD and HDD (you can buy these from Western Digital and they seem quite decent) and double the RAM spec. Then I might have a machine worth its processing power.
