I upgraded to this white Samsung NP370R5E from a similar looking Pearl White Toshiba Satellite C855, as that had errors with the sound, this is Samsung far superior, and is worth the extra money!
It is beautiful in design, but more importantly very light (no disk drive), the screen is great with a wider tilt and less reflection than my last laptop.
This is fast and efficient, it looks and feels a nice quality (as far as plastic ever can!), the keyboard and mousepad are nice to use and the machine is responsive.
Speakers are much louder and crisper, and by far better, than my previous laptop- the sound quality much better and not as "tingy" as cheaper models.... I am once again enjoying playing music on a laptop rather than hating it!
Only an extra £24 for a external dvd drive.... well worth it for the decrease in weight and bulk!
Windows 8 takes a slight amount of re-learning when upgrading from win7, and I was very apprehensive(worried) after hearing bad reviews of it..... in reality I am fast getting to grips with it, and find it no problem, especially upon learning the hot-keys.
Well done Samsung, a nice looking, lightweight, responsive, affordable laptop, and now I can finally utilise the Allshare play function with my other samsung devices too.
