In its silver colour, it looks and feels far more expensive than it actually was. The lid surface has a similar appearance to the etched aluminium used by another brand and the wrist rest area bears a cross-hatch pattern over the major part and the touch pad, which is larger than that on my 17-inch laptop, is silky to the touch. The island keyboard is well-spaced and the keys are reasonably large but there is no provision for indicator lights for Caps Lock, Num Lock etc but there is not an on-screen indicator either and you will need to exercise some caution when using these keys. The touch pad is very responsive and the cursor goes only where directed, as it should, unlike that on a Lenovo which only a day or two previously I had attempted to set up and where it appeared to have a mind of its own.
There is one issue with the touch pad which I feel is probably common to many other windows 8-equipped models, whether lower-level such as this or higher, and that is very limited gesture support; it appears only to support the three basic ones, horizontal and vertical scroll, and zoom. It is the 'expert' view often seen in magazines and on-line, and which I had commented upon before seeing any of these published reviews, that a gesture input device is absolutely essential. If it were not, there would be no need for Microsoft to introduce a new keyboard and a new mouse, each with Windows 8 features; additional supporting keys on the keyboard and a touch surface on the mouse that responds to several gestures.Read more ›
The screen is really bright and the colours are great (much better than my 4 year old laptop). It's also non-reflective therefore you should be able to use it when sitting by the window/outside. There's not much sun this time of year so I wasn't able to test this out. The screen is not touchscreen despite Microsoft really pushing Windows 8 with touchscreens but you need to pay at least two times more for a touch screen. Hopefully these will become standard with the next Windows release.
The keyboard is really well laid out. I got used to it within minutes. The track pad is responsive, however the number of gestures is unfortunately limited. Hopefully Samsung/Microsoft will be able to add further gestures in an update later on. The track pad buttons are split into 2 buttons (left & right) which makes using it a lot easier than with one button as on some models. The only down side to the keyboard is that there are no num-lock nor caps lock lights therefore you need to either guess, test if if they're on (especially caps lock).
There are 4 USB ports. Two USB 3 (blue) and two USB 2 (grey/black). The USB 2 ports on my laptop are quite tight and I almost need to force the cable in. After a quick search it seems that this issue also affects other laptops (not only Samsung) and the ports do loosen up the more you use them so that shouldn't be a problem.Read more ›
One day it stopped and would not boot up ... seemed totally dead. This was after less than 3 months. Had been in home office environment all this time, normal temps and reasonable ventilation, and not moved at all.
Fortunately, Amazon were extremely helpful and allowed me to send it back for a full refund. 5 Stars to Amazon and Yodel for the painless and quick service there. *****
I also was not impressed by Windows 8, although that is no fault of this product (I could not find a W7 version of it though).
We are replacing it with a W7-based desktop....disillusioned by laptops.
All of my computing is carried-out quickly and smoothly. Effortless multi-tasking performance for browsing, music, films, video-editing. I don't use games or Photoshop so can't comment. Works perfectly as a virtual musical instrument. Initially, I removed a bit of junk such as Norton and added Google Chrome (fast browser) Microsoft Security Essentials (free antivirus) and LibreOffice (free office suite). I also like my emails stored on my PC so I use the excellent Mozilla Thunderbird email programme. Battery life around 4 hours watching films.
Windows 8- lots of anti about it- I think it's absolutely fine. Essentially, for me, Win8 does exactly what I want it to. It can be customised to suit the individual and the hardware. If you don't like the tiles, you don't have to use them. I've modified my machine to boot straight to desktop and I've installed a Start button. I've also stopped the Charms and Quickstarter appearing which were irritating. Now, I have Win8 tailor-made to my requirements and doing just what I want it to.
So, a highly-recommended laptop (and OS) and very good value. I believe that a similar machine is now available with the i5 chip and a larger HD for a little more money which would also represent tremendous value.Read more ›
