I bought this laptop 3 weeks ago from John Lewis (it was on offer at the same price as amazon). Prior to buying it I was convinced I didn't want Windows 8. When I went to the shop to try it out I changed my mind completely. The reason? Touchscreen. There are much better reviews of windows 8 out there but simply, if you have a touch screen laptop, it's a great OS. The comic book look of windows 8 takes a little getting used to but when combined with the familiar and still present Windows 7 desktop mode, you'll find yourself using both in a complimentry way.

This Samsung laptop is the perfect machine to show off the benefits of windows 8. Design wise, it's beautiful, easily up there with the mac book air. It's very portable and so far I've been really impressed with the battery life, getting roughly 5 hours of heavey usage.

The 500gb hard drive is a bonus, so many new ultrabooks have silly 128gb SSD, this is just too small for my needs.

I'm no expert on processors and speeds but the start up time and re-start time is extremely quick (except when updates are being carried out).

Only niggle: slightly slow set up time and a few updates needed out of the box.

I have to admit, I was very unsure of purchasing a "used" ultrabook on Amazon, especially since it was being offered by a 3rd party (The Money Station). But having checked the ultrabook out in a store previously, I as very tempted by the price.

The ultrabook itself is a very sleek device. Due to the tapered edges, it gives you the illusion of being slimmer than it really is. However, if you remove the HDD and put your own SSD in (which is what I did), the ultrabook is not only lighter, but amazingly fast!
While it's not a gaming machine, I cannot fault it in any way. I do wish that it had a backlit keyboard though.
A couple of extra points:
1) If you want to migrate the recovery section onto a new SSD, there is actually a built in feature to do that! so no need to burn discs etc. Bravo Samsung! Simply plug a new drive in on USB (size not important). Then go into the samsung recovery console and use the transfer / copy function. Replace the HDD with the new drive and it simply boots up as a brand new installation. MAGIC!
2) Windows 8 with touch screen functionality make it the most amazing version of windows yet. You will absolutely love it.

For those of you who are unsure about buying a "used ultrabook" off Amazon: here is my feedback:
1) The Money Station have awesome reviews and had described the ultrabook quite accurately. In fact, they claimed the lid had scratches when it didnt have any at all! Bonus!
2) about 2 months after I purchased this ultrabook, it developed an issue with the touch screen. The issue, known as ghost clicking, is shown here [...

I have just bought a refurbished unit from laptops direct and I must says its possible the best laptop I have ever had.

1) The 500GB HD/ 24GB SSD combination makes it boot unbelievably fast from cold
2) Speed is good enough for anything except high performance games
3) Made me love Windows 8, which I still hate on my big games PC with 27" monitor
4) Very light, so very portable
5) Good battery life
6) Compared to my works Dell laptop it has the same keyboard size, 0.66" less monitor size, but a drastically smaller overall package
7) Does not get stupidly hot when used on your lap
8) No wifi issues
9) Good screen
10) The bezel around the screen and keyboard is small making the unit seem very small

Windows 8 should be renamed "Windows Touch" the touch experience makes the machine brilliant, you will never use the touch pad. I still hate Windows 8 on my Games PC with a large monitor. The children instantly, without explanation, worked out all the touch controls, pretty good.

The only downer was that all the SW needed updating which took forever, as I'm impatient, minutes on a fast connection and ages waiting while the disk whirred. I'm now running Windows 8.1 with an updated bios ... and all seems stable.

Bought this laptop as I needed a portable one with a reasonably sized screen that I felt would be reliable. I have had a Samsung laptop before that gave me years of good service, and after repairing the screen continues to do so, just needed something that I felt was newer and more reliable.
The screen size and brightness is lovely. the size is compact but not too small, the HDD size at 500GB is just right, I'm not into cloud storage. Its slightly heavier than I would like , it average performance, but perfectly good . The keyboard is very positive and easy to type on. Its just windows 8 I don't like!!. However luckily Samsung have put their own user interface on which is very like Windows 7, so I've got the best of both worlds. I tend to use the Samsung interface far more than Windows 8. The touch screen is responsive, though the screen gets lots of ugly fingermarks on it and needs daily cleaning.

Overall pleased I got it.
